Life Forms of Fishes and Energy Value of the Functional-Morphological Coefficient

ABSTRAKT

The life form of fishes is regarded as a complex of adaptations to swimming. Each adaptation is characterized by a functional-morphological coefficient K, a morphological index coupled with a hydrodynamic function. It is proposed that K is related to energy, which is described by the equation Q = aKb. This equation is regarded as a taxonomic character. The exponent b characterizes the process and is defined as the energy value of K. Using an example of the relation K = h/l, where h and l are body height and length, it is demonstrated that intraspecific ecomorphs (high- and low-bodied) of Carassius auratus gibelio (Bloch) differ in parameters of swimming by 30%.
