Interrelationships of Fishes

Overview

By far the largest and most diverse group of vertebrates, fishes occupy a broad range of habitats, from the deepest ocean abyss to the highest mountain lakes. Such incredible ecological diversity and variety in lifestyle, anatomy, physiology, and behavior make unravelling the evolutionary history of fishes a daunting task. The successor to a classic volume by the same title, Interrelationships of Fishes provides state-of-the-art systematics and classification for many of the major groups of fishes. In providing a...

Overview

By far the largest and most diverse group of vertebrates, fishes occupy a broad range of habitats, from the deepest ocean abyss to the highest mountain lakes. Such incredible ecological diversity and variety in lifestyle, anatomy, physiology, and behavior make unravelling the evolutionary history of fishes a daunting task. The successor to a classic volume by the same title, Interrelationships of Fishes provides state-of-the-art systematics and classification for many of the major groups of fishes. In providing a sound phylogenetic framework from leading authorities in the field, this book is an indipensable reference for a broad range of biologists, especially students of fish behvior, anatomy, physiology, molecular biology, genetics, and ecology. In fact, anyone who interprets their work on fishes in an evolutionary context will find this book valuable.

Audience: Ideal for marine scientists, ichthyologists, animal behaviorists, fishery biologists, and ecologists interested in fish evolution.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Provides state-of-the-art systematics and classification for many of the major groups of fishes, in a phylogenetic framework. Phylogenetic analyses utilize characters of the skeleton and soft anatomy of fishes, reflecting a strong morphological emphasis and underlining the enduring role of morphological data in contemporary systematic studies. Chapters are organized by type of fish, and contain descriptions of morphological data and data sets, and tables of molecular data. Useful as a reference for biologists studying fish anatomy, physiology, molecular biology, genetics, and ecology. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
