A functional approach to ecomorphological patterns of feeding in cottid fishes

  title={A functional approach to ecomorphological patterns of feeding in cottid fishes},
  author={Stephen F. Norton},
  journal={Environmental Biology of Fishes},
One of the major goals of an ecomorphological analysis is to correlate patterns of interspecific differences in morphology with patterns of interspecific differences in ecology. Information derived from functional morphological studies may provide a mechanistic framework supporting the correlation, but the move from a correlational relationship to a causal relationship requires experimental evidence that the interspecific morphological differences create performance differences and therefore… CONTINUE READING
