The monograph examines various aspects of the use of fish as indicators of time, space and habitat conditions. Fish turn out to be indicators of large intervals in the scale of geological time, interannual, seasonal and diurnal processes. The regularities of rearrangements of the species composition and distribution of fish in connection with global changes in the Earth's surface and climatic zones, as well as the peculiarities of the formation of deep-sea ichthyofauna are shown. Fish are indicators of large-scale phenomena and processes taking place at the present time, and of large typical coastal biotopes in the World Ocean, marginal and inland seas. Particular attention is paid to the use of fish as indicators of various forms of anthropogenic impacts on aquatic ecosystems.
The book can be useful to ichthyologists, ecologists, hydrobiologists, teachers and students of higher educational institutions.
