Hawaiian bobtail squid, Euprymna scolopes, in front of diving mask. This squid lives in a symbiotic relationship with the bioluminescent bacteria Vibrio fischeri, which inhabits a special light organ in the squid's mantle. The bacteria are fed a sugar and amino acid solution by the squid and in return hide the squid's silhouette when viewed from below by matching the amount of light hitting the top of the mantle, (counter-illumination).

Maritime pine (Pinus pinaster), resin extraction with plastic bags. Resin is usually collected by causing minor damage to the tree by making a hole far enough into the trunk to puncture the vacuoles, to let sap exit the tree, known as tapping, and then letting the tree repair its damage by filling the wound with resin. This usually takes a few days. Then, excess resin is collected.Turpentine is the volatile oil distilled from pine resin, which itself is obtained by tapping trees of the genus Pinus. The solid material left behind after distillation is known as rosin. Both products are used in a wide variety of applications. Traditionally, turpentine has been employed as a solvent or cleaning agent for paints and varnishes and this is still often the case today, particularly in those countries where the pine trees are tapped. There are also some specialized uses, in the pharmaceutical industry, for example. Portugal accounts for the greater part of world trade in gum turpentine but volumes have decreased in recent years as a result of falling resin production.The pine resin is antimicrobial and works to protect the plant from disease. Those same components can help to fight bacteria and fungus on our bodies, as well. PortugalMaritime pine (Pinus pinaster), resin extraction with plastic bags.

Aerial view of Basking shark, Cetorhinus maximus, and kayak. is the second-largest living shark, after the whale shark, and one of three plankton-eating shark species, along with the whale shark. Adults typically reach 6–8 m (20–26 ft) in length. The gill rakers, dark and bristle-like, are used to catch plankton as water filters through the mouth and over the gills. Despite their large size and threatening appearance, basking sharks are not aggressive and are harmless to humans. The basking shark has long been a commercially important fish, as a source of food, shark fin, animal feed, and shark liver oil.

Four-eyed fish, Anableps anableps, eye detail. Four-eyed fish have only two eyes, but the eyes are specially adapted for their surface-dwelling lifestyle. The eyes are positioned on the top of the head, and the fish floats at the water surface with only the lower half of each eye underwater. The two halves are divided by a band of tissue and the eye has two pupils, connected by part of the iris. The upper half of the eye is adapted for vision in air, the lower half for vision in water. The lens of the eye also changes in thickness top to bottom to account for the difference in the refractive indices of air versus water. Four-eyed fish spend most of their time at the surface of the water. Their diet mostly consists of terrestrial insects which are readily available at the surface.

Rosy wolfsnail, Euglandina rosea. It's a predatory air-breathing land snail, a carnivorous terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusk. Is a fast and voracious predator, hunting and eating other snails and slugs. Was introduced into Hawaii in 1955 as a biological control for the invasive African land snail, Achatina fulica. This snail is responsible for the extinction of an estimated eight native snail species in Hawaii. This has caused the snail to be added to the IUCN’s top 100 most invasive species.

Eyelight fish or one-fin flashlightfish, Photoblepharon palpebratus. They have subocular bioluminescent organs which it likely uses to attract and find prey, confuse predators, and communicate with other fish. These organs are blinked on and off by the fish using a dark lid that slides up to cover them. Use of only a black lid is unique to Photoblepharon; the other members of its family either rotate the organ into a pouch or employ a pouch-and-shutter method. Indonesia.

Splitfin flashlightfish or two-fin flashlightfish, Anomalops katoptron. They have two bean shaped torch-like organs under its eyes containing bioluminescent bacteria, which the fish can turn on and off by blinking. The light organs are embedded in suborbital cavities and are connected at the anterior edge via a cartilaginous rod like attachment. The suborbital light organs are densely settled with luminous symbiotic bacteria that grow in tubular structures and produce a constant bluish light. The flashlight fish blinks up to 90 blinks per minute, but when the flashlight fish detects its living planktonic prey, their light organs open for a longer period of time and blink five times less frequently.

White crowberry, Corema album. Hand showing white berries, on the sand dunes of Southwest Portugal. It's a white-berried perennial adapted to sandy soils in the Iberian Peninsula which has been consumed by humans for many centuries. It occurs naturally on sand dunes and cliffs of the Atlantic coast from Gibraltar to Finisterre, and in the Azores on volcanic lava and ash fields. C. album subsp. azoricum exists on six of the nine islands of the Azores, and below 200 m. Recently the range has extended to the dunes of Spanish Province of Alicante, and into France. The fruit has been consumer fresh for many centuries and they are sold fresh in a few public markets in Galicia. The fruit has been used in traditional medicine to reduce fevers and to kill intestinal worms Berries contain many anti-oxidants which have been reported as low amounts of anthocyanins, and high amounts of flavinol, and chloragenic acid derivatives, and phenolic acid. In a yeast Parkinson’s Disease model, C. album anti-oxidants may have protective effects, other than radical scavenging, and had a more powerful protective effect than Ginko biloba.

In a yeast Parkinson’s Disease model, C. album anti-oxidants may have protective effects, other than radical scavenging, and had a more powerful protective effect than Ginko biloba.

Fluorescent coral. Acan Brain Coral, Acanthastrea sp.. Above photographed with daylight and bellow showing fluorescent colours photographed under special blue or ultraviolet light and filter. Many corals are intensely fluorescent under certain light wavelengths. Shallow water reef-building fluorescent corals seem to be more resistant to coral bleaching than other corals, and the higher the density of fluorescent pigments, the more likely to resist. This enables them to better protect the zooxanthellae that help sustain them. The pigments that fluoresce are photoproteins, and a current theory is that this acts as a type of sunscreen that prevents too much UV light damaging the zooxanthallae. These corals have the photoproteins above the zooxanthallae to protect them. Corals that grow in deeper water, where light is scarce, are using fluorescence to absorb UV light and reflect it back to the zooxanthallae to give them more light to turn into nutrients. These corals have the photoproteins below the zooxanthallae to reflect it back. Photographed in aquarium. PortugalFluorescent coral. Acan Brain Coral, Acanthastrea sp..

Platypus or Duck-billed platypus, Ornithorhynchus anatinus, hidden in the middle of the floating vegetation. It's a semiaquatic egg-laying mammal endemic to eastern Australia, including Tasmania. Together with the four species of echidna, it is one of the five extant species of monotremes, the only mammals that lay eggs instead of giving birth to live young. The male's spurs deliver venom for defense. They have a sense of electroreception locating their prey in part by detecting electric fields generated by muscular contractions.

Platypus or Duck-billed platypus, Ornithorhynchus anatinus, eating a Australian freshwater crayfish, Cherax quadricarinatus. They also eat worms, insect larvae, freshwater shrimps that it digs out of the riverbed with its snout or catches while swimming. It uses cheek-pouches to carry prey to the surface, where it is eaten. The platypus needs to eat about 20% of its own weight each day, which requires it to spend an average of 12 hours daily looking for food.

Japanese eel, Anguilla japonica. The Japanese eel and other eels live in fresh water and estuaries where they feed and grow as yellow eels for a number of years before they begin to mature and become silver eels that migrate to the sea spawn. The spawning area of this species is in the North Equatorial Current in the western North Pacific to the west of the Mariana Islands. The Japanese freshwater eel produces a fluorescent protein. This protein is the basis of a new test to assess dangerous blood toxins that can trigger liver disease. The Japanese eel is an important food fish in East Asia, where it is raised in aquaculture ponds in most countries in the region. In Japan, where they are called unagi, they are an important part of the food culture, with many restaurants serving grilled eel, which is called kabayaki. Eels also have uses in Chinese medicine.

Chain catshark or chain dogfish, Scyliorhinus retifer. Showing fluorescent colours when photographed under special blue or ultraviolet light and filter. Scyliorhinus retifer. Is one of four elasmobranch species shown to possess biofluorescent properties. They exhibit bright green fluorescence patterns resulting from the presence of fluorescent compounds in their skin. Catsharks possess the ability to detect the green biofluorescence that is emitted by their conspecifics and this fluorescence creates greater contrast with the surrounding habitat in deeper blue-shifted waters (under solar or lunar illumination).

Zebrafish (Danio rerio). Stripe form (above) Casper fish form (bellow). Casper fish are the result of a cross between 2 mutant zebra fish. Since 1930 zebra fish are used to study the development of cancer in vivo. The fertilized eggs, embryos, and fry are transparent, allowing scientists to easily observe and study topics such as tumor growth, brain tissue development, and blood vessel growth. However, after a few weeks, transparency declines as their bodies become opaque, limiting the research window for scientists. In response, researchers began crossbreeding specific genetic strains of zebra fish to produce a transparent fish. After a year, they developed the "Casper Fish", which lacks pigment in its skin and scales, and therefore is transparent. The Casper Fish’s transparency allowed researchers to extend their research into the adult stage of this model organism. USAZebrafish (Danio rerio). Stripe form (above) Casper fish form (bellow).

Although not originally developed for the ornamental fish trade, it is one of the first genetically modified animals to become publicly available. These fluorescent fishes were developed with a gene that encodes the green fluorescent protein from a jellyfish. The gene was inserted into a zebrafish embryo, allowing it to integrate into the zebrafish's genome, which caused the fish to be brightly fluorescent under both natural white light and ultraviolet light. Their goal was to develop a fish that could detect pollution by selectively fluorescing in the presence of environmental toxins. USAGloFish Zebrafish (Danio rerio), in diverse color versions.

Zebrafish (Danio rerio), with human cancer. Zebrafish are a powerful tool for studying human cancers. Transgenic techniques have been employed to model different types of tumors, including leukemia, melanoma, glioblastoma and endocrine tumors. Transplantation of human cancer cells in embryos or adult zebrafish offers the advantage of studying the behavior of human cancer cells in a live organism. Chemical-genetic screens using zebrafish embryos have uncovered novel druggable pathways and new therapeutic strategies, some of which are now tested in clinical trials. Zebrafish has contributed to novel discoveries or approaches to novel therapies for human cancer. FranceZebrafish (Danio rerio), with human cancer.

Human tumor cells, colored red, growing in zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryo. Scientists inserted human cancer cells into zebrafish embryos and allowed them to grow for several days. Then added chemotherapy to the fishes’ water and found that some of the tumors shrank and others didn’t. The use of human oncogenes, often in conjunction with fluorescent reporters to aid the monitoring of tumor initiation and progression, and the isolation and in vivo imaging of cancer cells, demonstrated the cross-species ability of oncogenes to transform zebrafish cells. Similar cancer experiments have been made with mice, but the zebrafish approach may be faster and cheaper, making it accessible for more patients. Cancer research.

Zebrafish (Danio rerio), on casper fish form. Casper fish are the result of a cross between 2 mutant zebra fish. Since 1930 zebra fish are used to study the development of cancer in vivo. The fertilized eggs, embryos, and fry are transparent, allowing scientists to easily observe and study topics such as tumor growth, brain tissue development, and blood vessel growth. However, after a few weeks, transparency declines as their bodies become opaque, limiting the research window for scientists. In response, researchers began crossbreeding specific genetic strains of zebra fish to produce a transparent fish. After a year, they developed the "Casper Fish", which lacks pigment in its skin and scales, and therefore is transparent. The Casper Fish’s transparency allowed researchers to extend their research into the adult stage of this model organism. USAZebrafish (Danio rerio), on casper fish form.

Paedocypris progenetica. Photographed in aquarium with a milimetric scale to show the diminutive size of the fish. It's a fish endemic to the Indonesian islands of Sumatra and Bintan where it is found in peat swamps and blackwater streams. It is the smallest known fish in the world, with females reaching a maximum standard length of 10.3 mm and males 9.8 mm. A female measuring only 7.9 mm was the smallest known mature specimen. It held the record for the smallest known vertebrate until the frog Paedophryne amauensis was formally described in January 2012. The fish, a member of the carp family, has a partially see-through body and a reduced head skeleton, which leaves the brain completely unprotected by bone. This tiny, translucent fish has the appearance of larvae, possesses some bizarre grasping pelvic fins and lives in dark tea-coloured waters with an acidity of pH3, which is at least 100 times more acidic than rainwater. Those peat swamps have been damaged by large forest fires and they are still being threatened by industries such as logging and agriculture. As a result several populations of Paedocypris have already been lost. FrancePaedocypris progenetica. Photographed in aquarium with a milimetric scale to show the diminutive size of the fish.

Sciaenops ocellatus, Red drum, on estuary environment. Occurs usually over sand and sandy mud bottoms in coastal waters and estuaries. Abundant in surf zone. By the 1980s, this species was overexploited due to unsustainable take by commercial fisheries in U.S. waters. Scientists believe that the characteristic black spot near their tail helps fool predators into attacking the red drum's tail instead of its head, allowing the red drum to escape.

Spotted wobbegong, Orectolobus maculatus, swimming over sand bottom. It's a carpet shark probably endemic to Australia. Commonly found on coral and rocky reefs, in coastal bays, in estuaries, in seagrass beds, under piers, and on sandy bottoms. Nocturnal feeds on crabs, lobsters, octopuses and fish. Regarded as a pest by lobster fishers. Flesh highly regarded and used on human consumption. There are several reports of unprovoked attacks on divers. This shark is often reluctant to let go once it bites, causing severe lacerations. Australia. Composite imageSpotted wobbegong, Orectolobus maculatus, swimming over sand bottom.

Barramundi or Asian sea bass, Lates calcarifer, sea form, swimming. It's an icon of Western Australia’s Kimberley region, prized by recreational fishers for its taste, size and fighting spirit when hooked. They eat almost anything, including other barramundi, and can consume prey up to 60 per cent their own length. They can grow up to 200 cm in length and 60 kg. During their lifecycle, they change sex from male to female. The species is sequentially hermaphroditic, with most individuals maturing as males and becoming female after at least one spawning season; most of the larger specimens are therefore females. Barramundi have a mild flavour and a white, flaky flesh, with varying amount of body fat. Australia. Composite imageBarramundi or Asian sea bass, Lates calcarifer, sea form, swimming.

Together with the four species of echidna, it is one of the five extant species of monotremes, the only mammals that lay eggs instead of giving birth to live young. The male's spurs deliver venom for defense. They have a sense of electroreception locating their prey in part by detecting electric fields generated by muscular contractions. Queensland, Australia.

Leafy seadragon or Glauert's seadragon, Phycodurus eques, swimming over algae covered rock. The lobes of skin that grow on the leafy seadragon provide camouflage, giving it the appearance of seaweed. It is able to maintain the illusion when swimming, appearing to move through the water like a piece of floating seaweed. It can also change colour to blend in, but this ability depends on the seadragon's diet, age, location, and stress level. South Australia.

Tongue-eating louse, Cymothoa exigua. Attached to the tong of a Clownfish, Amphiprion ocellaris. It's a parasitic isopod that enters fish through the gills, and then attaches itself to the fish's tongue. The female attaches to the tongue and the male attaches on the gill arches beneath and behind the female. The parasite severs the blood vessels in the fish's tongue, causing the tongue to fall off. It then attaches itself to the stub of what was once its tongue and becomes the fish's new tongue. Once the parasite replaces the fish tongue begins to feed on the host's blood. Indonesia.
