Editorial Reviews

Ichthyologists specializing in morphology, ultrastructure, physiology, developmental biology, neurology, ecology, and behavior present 15 commissioned papers on the senses of the gnathostomes, or jawed fish, among which are the teleosts, which account for almost all living fish. Among the topics are the development of the eye of teleosts, electrogeneration in South American weakly electric fish, the mechano- sensory lateral line, the role of the fish telencephalon in sensory information processing, the biologically adequate stimulus for electroreception in freshwater catfish, and the neurobiology of fish olfaction.
