Summary
Abstract: Antarctica has been a frozen continent for about the last 15-20 million years. In that time, the notothenioid fish have become the dominant group of fish with about 100 new species appearing in the comparative absence of other competing fish. A wide range of lifestyle, size and unusual physiological adaptations are found in this group. We investigated the mechanisms and patterns by which all of ... View entire text
