Functional Morphology: 'Point and Shoot' Prey Capture in Fishes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The ability to protrude the jaws and capture elusive prey is a hallmark of fish evolution. New analyses provide insight into how jaw protrusion changed predator-prey relationships and fueled species diversification in ancient seas.
