Introduction to adaptations in aquatic animals
In process of evolution certain animals or plants undergo various structural changes which are external and internal in order to survive in the ecosystem. Such changes are referred as adaptations which can be divergent or convergent.
Adaptation is process of speciation where in formation of appendages will lead to appearance, development and existence of species in the ecosystem.
Similarly aquatic animals as they live in water in deep oceans or in fresh water need to possess many appendages which help them to survive in the water.
Aquatic animals live in water and need to have special morphological adaptations in order to survive in aquatic ecosystem. It is evident that the more time the animal spends in water the more would be the number of adaptations
