About this book

Language: Chinese

This book gives an overview of the biology of the lancelet, which are fish-like marine chordates. Since they are harvested commercially as food for humans and domesticated animals in Asia, they are a threatened species in this reigon.

Summary in Chinese:
文昌鱼交配、卵的发育、幼体出膜,以及它与伴生动物们的互动,这些画面都极为珍贵。曾经震惊世界的、全球唯一的文昌鱼渔场在数十年后被废弃,身上蕴含着揭开人类起源秘密的钥匙如今濒临灭绝。让更多的人认识文昌鱼,了解它们的神奇和伟大,投身到保护文昌鱼的队伍中来,是编著这本《沧海遗孤(文昌鱼)》的目的之一。
《沧海遗孤(文昌鱼)》是《中国珍稀物种探秘丛书》的第四部,两位作者张维赟、叶晓青都是从事科普影视创作的年轻人,全程参与了《文昌鱼》的影片拍摄。
