Scyphozoa have attracted the eye of many sorts of individuals. Naturalists watch their swish locomotion. Fishermen may perhaps dread the swarms that could hinder fishing or devour 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 uncomplicated types for the functioning of assorted structures. This publication integrates info from these and different investigations right into a sensible biology of scyphozoa. it's going to emphasize the big variety of adaptive responses attainable in those morphologically particularly easy animals. The booklet will pay attention to the learn of the final 35 years, partially simply because there was a quick enlargement of data in the course of that interval, and partially simply because a lot of the former paintings was once summarized by means 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 by means of Naumov (Naumov, 1961). such a lot impor­ tantly, a genenttion of scyphozoan employees has used as its 'bible' the monograph via F.S.Russell (1970) The Medusae of the British Isles. despite its restrictive name, his booklet experiences many of the details at the biology of scyphozoa as much as that date.
