Ictiología is a modern and comprehensive textbook of ichthyology providing an overview of recent ichthyological reasearch in South America, particularly Argentina.
The distribution of fish in inland aquatic environments is not uniform, the fish fauna of South America is very diverse with three major drainage basins on the continent. The way of life of the freshwater fishes of South America, particularly Argentina, and its relationship to the environment are treated by the authors, taking into account the actions exerted by the man on aquatic ecosystems (pollution, dams and the introduction of species) and their associated fish fauna. Useful reference is paid to the early life stages of bony fishes (their eggs and larvae) which are extremely vulnerable to environmental threats.
A standard reference for both students and professionals. Spanish text, Latin nomenclature.
