Fishes form the largest group of vertebrates, with around 20,000 known species, and they display a remarkable diversity of size, shape, internal structure and ecology to cope with environments ranging from transient puddles to the abyssal depths of the sea. Life in water leads to particular problems for body fluid regulation, locomotion and sensory systems, and these have been resolved in the most ingenious ways. This textbook should be of interest to students of fish biology and any of the branches of aquatic biology. The book also provides a manageable review of fish biology for experienced biologists.
