Overview

Fish are the most diverse group of living vertebrates. They occupy a range of habitats from high mountain lakes to the deepest ocean abyss. Such incredible ecological diversity and the resulting variety in lifestyle, anatomy, physiology, and behavior make unraveling the evolutionary history of fishes a challenging task.

The successor of a classic volume by the same title, Interrelationships of Fishes provides a comprehensive and thorough review of fish evolutionary history. It covers the latest in state-of-the-art systematics and classifications for many of the major groups of fishes. Leading authorities in the field wrote this indispensable reference which is now available for the first time in paperback.
