1 Nelson, Joseph S., H.-P. Schultze & M.V.H. Wilson (editors) Origin and Phylogenetic Interrelationships of Teleosts
3899371070 / 9783899371079 New
2010. 26cm. Pp.480. 45 colour & 101 black-and-white figures, 19 tables, 6 appendices. Hardbound.

Origin and Phylogenetic Interrelationships of Teleosts presents a modern view including a compilation of synapomorphies of numerous teleostean taxa with a new proposal of their classification, a proposal that pycnodonts are the fossil sister group of teleosts, a phylogeny based on mitochondrial genome sequences, separate analyses of basal teleostean taxa (Osteoglossomorpha, Clupeiformes, Gonorynchiformes, Cypriniformes, Characiformes, Siluriformes, Salmoniformes, Esociformes) and the euteleostean Aulopiformes, karyological studies of Cyprinodontidae, and morphological analyses of the posterior part of the neurocranium.

Presents the current state of phylogenetic knowledge of the origin of teleosts and the interrelationships of teleost groups, both key issues in fish systematics, based on both morphological (of extant and fossil taxa) and molecular evidence. The many contributors to the volume present and evaluate progress in studying both characters and taxa and in establishing databases (morphological and molecular) that will be of use in future.
