"One. The possible reactions open to fishes in regard to attack, feeding needs, social behavior, pigmentation, time, and space may be conveniently tabulated in thoretical terms. 2. The actual reactions observed in a variety of fishes compared with the theoretical tabulation show that illustrations filling nearly every category exist. 3. Included in such illustrative material are new data on the pigmentary and associated behavioral reactions of Manta, Strongylura, Hippocampus, Hepsetia, Sphyraena, Coryphaena, Apogonichthys, Pomacentrus, Abudefduf, Halichoeres, Thalassoma, Holocentrus, Bathygobius, Gnatholepis, Stathmonotus, Canthigaster, Histrio, Antennarius, and Ogcocephalus. 4. These data indicate that study in greater and more exact detail must be made of the total behavior of a given species in reference to its pigmentary changes before any clear picture can be had of the full significance of the activity of the pigmentary system. 5. A scheme for representing the relationships between various factors in the survival of organisms, covering cases where pairs of factors are supplementary and cases where they are opposed, is found convenient when discussing their various reactive patterns"--P. 104.
