The diversity of fish species is striking, and the behavioural specialisations that have been documented are truly amazing. In many cases, researchers have used different fish species as model systems with which to address fundamental questions about evolution and fitness, and often these studies have found that behaviour and differences in behaviour are what underpins these processes.
The book tackles issues from the perspective of the mechanisms underlying different behaviours, to how the nervous system and associated physiology enable fish to make decisions, the manner in which these systems establish different types of behavioural patterns and life histories, and how these combine to produce complex behaviours. It is structured to guide the reader from consideration of behavioural mechanisms that generate different categories of behaviour, to how their functional effects influence fish in their day-to-day lives.
