Hagfish biology by Susan L. Edwards, Gregory G. Goss

By Susan L. Edwards, Gregory G. Goss

With over 70 species nonetheless populating the world’s oceans after nearly 500 million years, hagfishes are crucial benthic organisms that play an important position in knowing the evolutionary origins of vertebrate lifestyles and the upkeep of the oceanic surroundings. Hagfish Biology is an extended late publication for speaking and furthering learn on those targeted animals. It presents an street of synergy between scientists attracted to hagfish body structure, molecular and evolutionary biology, morphology, and protection.

New excessive throughput sequencing applied sciences, complex microscopy thoughts, descriptions of hagfish embryology, and advancements of suggestions to appreciate historic evolutionary relationships have resulted in a resurgence of curiosity within the hagfish as a key species in knowing the evolution of vertebrates. encouraged via those new study views, this ebook compiles clinical info on hagfishes that's of curiosity to quite a number fields resembling ecology and evolution, comparative body structure, and conservation biology.

A much-needed contribution, Hagfish Biology builds on prior wisdom whereas encouraging additional growth of clinical curiosity and studying approximately this attention-grabbing but understudied key evolutionary species. It introduces you to constructing parts of study and gives starting issues for a bigger dialog on hagfishes.
