THE Days of a Man “is the title chosen by Dr. David Starr Jordan for his autobiography. Dr. Jordan, who was born in 1851, has been for many years the leading ichthyologist in America, and is the author of a large number of memoirs on fishes, generally Written in collaboration with his pupils. Of these the best known is the monumental “Fishes of North America” (1896–1900) by Jordan and Evermann, but perhaps his work on the Fishes of Japan marks the greatest advance, for these had been… 
David Starr Jordan (1851-1931)
David Starr Jordan studied fish [3] and promoted eugenics [4] in the US during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In his work, he embraced Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution [5] and

physics may be singled out. Among the numerous EUCLID items in Greek, Arabic, Latin, and other tongues, are the Elementa, printed by RATDOLT in Venice in 1482, and the English translation by H.
Toiling together for social cohesion: International influences on the development of teacher education in the United States
This article examines the ways in which the very idea of teacher education in the United States was transplanted from foreign lands. Teacher education, particularly normal school training, was based
Geographical continuity and discontinuity in the meristic characteristics of ayus of the southern subspecies Plecoglossus altivelis ryukyuensis
TLDR
The two subtropical populations showed a reversal of the geographic cline in the number of scales and dorsal fin rays, indicating these do not share a gene pool, and genetic status within Ryukyu-ayu remains disputable.

Changes in key traits versus depth and latitude suggest energy-efficient locomotion, opportunistic feeding and light lead to adaptive morphologies of marine fishes.
TLDR
These findings suggest that, in increasingly extreme environments, fish morphology shifts towards a body shape that favours an energy-efficient undulatory swimming style and an increase in jaw-length versus mouth width for opportunistic feeding and increases in eye size indicate that changes in both the average ambient light conditions as well as seasonal variations in day-length can act to select ecomorphological adaptations in fishes.
