    Get this from a library! Surfeit of Lampreys. [Ngaio Marsh] -- The killingly aristocratic Lamprey family exemplifies charm, wit, and a chronic lack of funds. Their only source of hope is the wealthy but unpleasant Lord Wutherwood, and the Lampreys may perhaps be. Many different kinds of animals have adopted a parasitic life style on the skin and gills of marine and freshwater fishes, including protozoans, flatworms, leeches, a range of crustaceans and even some vertebrates (lampreys). There is a parasitic barnacle, described first in the 19th century by Charles Darwin, fish lice that change sex and bivalve molluscs parasitic only when young.

    Lampreys face a range of environmental challenges during their complex life cycle (Fig. 1).Larval lampreys may have to deal with fluctuations in O 2 and temperature within their burrows in the silty substrate of streams, and the increased metabolic demands and reorganization of the respiratory and circulatory systems during metamorphosis may explain why transforming lampreys move to faster. Filled with odd yet appealing characters, Surfeit of Lampreys is one of my favorite Marsh books. If you haven't read Ngaio Marsh before, start with her earlier books, such as this one. The reader get a better sense of who Roderick Alleyn is and how he solves crimes. Alleyn and his staff are more involved in the story in Marsh's earlier books.

      As babies, sea lampreys are blind and feed by filtering micro-organisms through the water. But as adults, they attach themselves to other fish (or even dolphins) by “using their sucking mouthparts” ― a jawless mouth full of teeth ― “to attach themselves to the host’s body,” the Alaska Department of Fish and Game explains. Oh and by the way, they can kill up to 40 fish a year. The mating system of lampreys is primarily polygynandrous (i.e., where multiple males mate with multiple females). Lamprey species with adult total length less than 30 cm generally spawn communally, where a nest may contain 20 or more individuals of both sexes.

Three species are. Lampreys are also a source of food for many animals. Ammoceotes are eaten by fish, like sheefish, northern pike, and burbot, and mammals, like otters, when they are disturbed from the silt or mud. Adults are eaten by marine mammals and larger fish and birds, especially when they.
