Abstract: Antarctic notothenioid fishes have radiated to fill a range of ecological niches, forming an assemblage of over a hundred closely related species. Some groups have developed extreme specializations while others remain generalized. The metabolic and biochemical consequences of niche specialization in notothenioids from McMurdo Sound was investigated and comparisons were made between specialists and ... View entire text
