Gonorynchiformes and Ostariophysan Relationships: A Comprehensive Review (Series on: Teleostean Fish Biology) Editor: Terry Grande Format: Hardback First Published: Published By: Taylor & Francis Inc Pages: 600 Language: English ISBN: 9781578083749 Categories: ,

An understanding of gonorynchiform morphology and systematic inter- and intra-relationships has proven vital to a better understanding of the evolution of lower teleosts in general, and more specifically of groups such as the clupeiforms (e.g., herrings and anchovies), and ostariophysans (e.g., carps, minnows and catfishes). This book examines the current knowledge of gonorynchiform biology, including comparative osteology, myology, epibranchial morphology and development. Phylogenetic interrelationships among gonorynchiform fishes are reexamined.

Author Biography

Terry Grande received her PhD from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1992. She is currently a professor of Biology at Loyola University, Chicago. She specializes in teleostean systematics, biogeography, and evolutionary relationships. In addition, she works on the evolution of hearing mechanisms and hybridization patterns in fishes. She is an editor for the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology and a member of the National Science Foundation Euteleost Tree of Life initiative., Poyato-Ariza, F.J. is a professor at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, where he graduated in Biology. After postgraduation he worked at the Museum national d'Histoire naturelle de Paris, Museum of Natural History of the University of Kansas, and Museum fur Naturkunde Berlin. He currently teaches Paleobiology and Vertebrate Palaeozoology, and focuses his research on pycnodonts, primitive teleosteans, and fish taphonomy, cooperating in several international projects., Rui Diogo graduated from the University of Aveiro (Portugal), undertook his PhD at the University of Liege (Belgium) and is now at the George Washington University (US). He has participated in numerous publications, including Catfishes, and is the author of the books Morphological Evolution, Aptations, Homoplasies, Constraints and Evolutionary Trends and The Origin of Higher Clades. His current projects include works on the comparative anatomy, development, functional morphology, phylogeny and macroevolution of vertebrates.
