Bathers retreat from the water in the event that they are stung. humans from a few Asiatic nations devour the medusae. Comparative physiologists learn them as in all likelihood easy versions for the functioning of assorted structures. This publication integrates information from these and different investigations right into a practical 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 study of the final 35 years, in part simply because there was a swift growth 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.
