Scyphozoa have attracted the eye of many varieties of individuals. Naturalists watch their sleek locomotion. Fishermen might dread the swarms which could hinder fishing or consume larval fish. Bathers retreat from the water in the event that they are stung. humans from a few Asiatic international locations devour the medusae. Comparative physiologists learn them as potentially basic versions for the functioning of varied platforms. This publication integrates information from these and different investigations right into a sensible biology of scyphozoa. it is going to emphasize the big variety of adaptive responses attainable in those morphologically really uncomplicated animals. The ebook will pay attention to the learn of the final 35 years, partially simply because there was a swift growth of data in the course of that interval, and in part simply because a lot of the former paintings was once summarized by way of books released among 1961 and 1970. Bibliographies of papers on scyphozoa have been integrated in Mayer (1910) and Kramp (1961). Taxonomic diagnoses also are incorporated in these monographs, in addition to in a monograph at the scyphomedusae of the USSR released via Naumov (Naumov, 1961). such a lot impor­ tantly, a genenttion of scyphozoan staff has used as its 'bible' the monograph by way of F.S.Russell (1970) The Medusae of the British Isles. even with its restrictive identify, his booklet experiences many of the info at the biology of scyphozoa as much as that date.
