Which fly stung the Balinese macaques from the Uluwatu temple, who steal and return their booty in exchange for food?
Genes, photos and fossils: that's all that was needed to analyse the morphological evolution of Carangoid fishes. And to draw new conclusions regarding the pelagic environment as a factor of diversification.
A recent study, unique in the world, has made it possible to compare the huge amount of sounds emitted by different fish communities at a depth of 120 meters.
Fish that live in pearl oysters produce sounds, probably to attract a mate. Their host’s shell acts as an amplifier for these sounds.
Two studies on damselfish, one behavioral and the other devoted to the evolution of 124 species, have made it possible to observe the way in which a morphological trait has determined their ecological behavior.
