Mucus Matters : The Slippery and Complex Surfaces of Fish

  title={Mucus Matters : The Slippery and Complex Surfaces of Fish},
  • Published 2018
Teleost scales are extremely diverse in morphology, with different categories (cycloid, crenate, spinoid, ctenoid) once used to define major groups of fish. We describe these different classical categories of scales and discuss the structure and potential function of small features of scale morphology such as spines, ctenii, radii, and circuli. Modern techniques now make analysis of scale morphology using three-dimensional quantitative data possible. This ability is crucial because many of the… CONTINUE READING
