By William F. Herrnkind (auth.), Howard E. Winn, Bori L. Olla (eds.)

What were introduced jointly in those volumes are works symbolize­ ing numerous smooth quantitative stories on a decide on staff of marine organisms. many of the species studied the following characterize uncomplicated organic ex­ perimental subjects-in a few circumstances, marine models of the white rat and pigeon-that are getting used for a variety of stories. different species studied have been nearly unknown as experimental animals. The authors have studied their animals in huge intensity, frequently in either the sphere and the laboratory. it's this go reference among genuine existence and the synthetic yet managed stipulations of the laboratory which supplies us the required realizing, and finally the capacity, for making improvements to our quickly deteriorating setting, a needs to for man's survival, upkeep, and development of the standard of residing criteria. a right away outgrowth of a AAAS symposium entitled "Recent Advances within the habit of Marine Organisms" held in December 1966, those vol­ umes contain a cheap stability among overview and unique unpublished study. Of the numerous folks who've made those volumes attainable, we want to specifically thank Nancy Fish, Lois Winn, Mabel Trafford, and Deborah Brennan. The latter complete lots of the ultimate editorial paintings. The team of workers of Plenum Press have been cooperative in all points of our rela­ tionship. basically the 2 editors are answerable for defects within the volumes. We think the papers provided are major and should be of value to participants of the clinical community.

Moreover, the transitional ontogenetic stages in fiddler crabs differ morphologically, physiologically, ecologically, and behaviorally from the adult and, successively, from one another (Table II). Therefore, their orientational repertoire cannot be assumed equivalent to that of the adult, In fact, Altevogt and von Hagen (1964) describe several ontogenetic differences in orientation of U. 1 mm in carapace width, do not spontaneously orient by polarized light, and crabs 7-15 mm in carapace width exhibit seaward preferred directions, while those over 15 mm prefer the landward bearing.

The dispersion shown, as well as the behavior of the test crabs, resembled that of the control crabs 2 weeks to 5 months old (Fig. 12c and 13 b). Definite orientation, perpendicular to the shoreline relative to the polarization plane, appeared in five crabs 2-3 months old, as shown by their cumulative distribution (Fig.
