About this book

Living organisms are endowed with ingenious adaptive mechanisms to cope with the problems of special environments. Fish make an excellent model to depict the interplay of morphological, physiological and biochemical aspects.

The book presents a window to an array of adaptations of aquatic inhabitants which enable them to susist and survive in the uncommon, often hostile, external environment.
