By William E. S. Carr (auth.), Jelle Atema, Richard R. Fay, Arthur N. Popper, William N. Tavolga (eds.)

This quantity constitutes a chain of invited chapters in accordance with displays given at a world convention at the Sensory Biology of Aquatic Animals held June 24-28, 1985 on the Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, Florida. The fast goal of the convention was once to spark an trade of rules, thoughts, and methods between investigators excited about different sensory modalities hired by way of a wide selection of animal species in extracting details from the aquatic surroundings. via necessity, so much investigators of sensory biology are experts in a single sensory procedure: assorted stimulus modalities require various equipment of stimulus keep watch over and, usually, assorted animal versions. but, it truly is transparent that each one sensory structures have rules in universal, resembling stimulus filtering via peripheral buildings, tuning of receptor cells, signal-to-noise ratios, adaption and disadaptation, and potent dynamic variety. different beneficial properties, reminiscent of hormonal and efferent neural keep an eye on, circadian reorganization, and receptor recycling are identified in a few and never in different senses. The convention afforded an elevated know-how of latest discoveries in different sensory platforms that has successfully encouraged a clean glance by way of some of the members at their very own region of specialization to determine even if related ideas follow. This idea was once discovered not just in theoretical matters, yet both in concepts and techniques of method. The myopy of sensory specialization used to be damaged in a single unforeseen approach by means of displaying obstacles of person experience organs and their integration inside each one organism. for example, learning imaginative and prescient, one ordinarily chooses a visible animal as a model.
