Studying fish anatomy
, I learned that most small fish swim in S-curves, while larger predators move through water in "C" shapes.
Shapes of fins and line diagrams of various parts of fish anatomy
are also included.
It is amazing how much information lies in fish anatomy
for instance, and in gut contents, state of male and female gonads and length and age of each fish.
Students in the College of Veterinary Medicine's marine animal health program in Gainesville learn about fish anatomy
as well as how to rescue and rehabilitate dolphins, manatees, and other sea creatures--skills that could come in handy as climate change roils the oceans.
The color photographs are beautifully detailed, the introduction describes basic fish anatomy
, the glossary includes cross references and the index contains both common and Latin names.
