Morphology, Phylogeny and Paleobiogeography of Fossil Fishes, Honoring Meemann Chang, Elliott, David K., John G. Maisey, Xiaobo Yu & Desui Miau (editors):
5 Elliott, David K., John G. Maisey, Xiaobo Yu & Desui Miau (editors): Morphology, Phylogeny and Paleobiogeography of Fossil Fishes, Honoring Meemann Chang

2010. 26cm. Pp.472. 13 coloured and 194 black-and-white figures, 14 tables, 9 appendices. Hardbound

The study of fossil fishes has advanced significantly over the past few years, giving scientists a rare opportunity to understand the origin and early evolution of major vertebrate groups, ranging from the jawless agnathans to piscine gnathostomes (placoderms, acanthodians, chondrichthyans and osteichthyans).

Morphology, Phylogeny and Paleobiogeography of Fossil Fishes presents recent findings on the morphology, phylogeny and paleobiogeography of fossil fishes, as a tribute to Professor Meemann Chang for her contributions to paleoichthyology and to the study of early vertebrate evolution.

With a foreword by Dr. Henry Gee (Senior Science Editor of Nature), an introduction, 22 research papers by leading vertebrate paleontologists from 14 countries, and 220 photos and illustrations, this book covers important fossil forms ranging from the Paleozoic to the Cenozoic and reflects research advances based on traditional paleontological methods as well as new techniques such as CT scanning.

Sharks and Shark Products in Prehistoric South Florida, Kozuch, L
6 Kozuch, L Sharks and Shark Products in Prehistoric South Florida
1881448010 / 9781881448013 New
 
1993. 25cm. Pp.vii,52. 11 photos, text figures & maps. Paperback.

Sharks and Shark Products in Prehistoric South Florida is a comprehensive exploration of the economic uses of sharks by Precolumbian natives of south Florida. Laura Kozuch provides a fascinating account of the role of sharks in the culture and economy of south Florida's Native Americans. A zooarchaeologist, Kozuch shows that sharks were regularly hunted by south Florida Indians, for whom they provided meat, shark-liver oil, and teeth for tools and trade. She reviews shark-fishing technology around the world, describes archaeological findings in south Florida, and offers interpretations relevant to the role of sharks in native social and economic systems.

Origin and Phylogenetic Interrelationships of Teleosts, Nelson, Joseph S., H.-P. Schultze & M.V.H. Wilson (editors)
8 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.

Fossil Cichlid Fish of Africa, van Couvering, J.A.H
12 van Couvering, J.A.H Fossil Cichlid Fish of Africa
As new
 
1982. 25cm. Pp.103. 10 plates. Paperback.

Members of the teleost family Cichlidae first appear in the fossil record either in the Eocene of South America (the age of these deposits is questionable) or in the Oligocene of Africa. These earliest known specimens are fully cichlid and tell us little about the origin of the family. Pomacentrids, embiotocids, labrids, scarids, and nandids have all been suggested as sister groups of the Cichlidae, but as yet there has been no detailed work analysing the interrelationships of these families. The similarities between the pomacentrids and cichlids seem to be due to convergence. Twenty different types of fossil cichlids have been described from Afro-Arabia. Five of these are new species formally described in Fossil Cichlid Fish of Africa : Macfadyena dabanensis, Palaeofulu kuluensis, Nderechromis cichloides, Kalyplochromis hamulodenlis and Sarolherodon marlyni.

Phylogeny, Anatomy and Physiology of Ancient Fishes, Zaccone, Giacomo ; Konrad Dabrowski, Michael S. Hedrick, Jorge M. O. Fernandes & Jose M. Icardo (editors)
14 Zaccone, Giacomo ; Konrad Dabrowski, Michael S. Hedrick, Jorge M. O. Fernandes & Jose M. Icardo (editors) Phylogeny, Anatomy and Physiology of Ancient Fishes
1498707556 / 9781498707558 New
 
2015. 26cm. Pp.350. 35 colour plates, 49 figures. Hardbound.

This book on ancient fishes unites the work of many specialists coming from different areas of biology. Hagfishes, lungfishes, Chondrosteans, and Holosteans constitute the main subject of study. Fossil records and extant species are compared to establish the conservation or the degeneration of specific characters. However, phylogenetic relationships have mostly been revisited in the light of new molecular and developmental data. The morphology of several organs is also revisited.

This volume includes a phylogenetic account of the cardiac outflow tract, and the particulars of the heart and circulation in lungfishes. The control of breathing and the lung-swim bladder issue is discussed. The developmental anatomy of the sturgeon gut and accounts of the gut structure in lungfishes and garfishes are also included. Biochemical and physiological aspects of the behavior of lungfishes and gars are presented. Reports on the fish olfactory system, and on the amazing slime glands of hagfishes, are also covered.
