The Tree of Life and a New Classification of Bony Fishes
The tree of life of fishes is in a state of flux because we still lack a comprehensive phylogeny that includes all major groups. The situation is most critical for a large clade of spiny-finnedExpand

Vertebral column and associated elements in dipnoans and comparison with other fishes: Development and homology
A vertebral column consisting of a persistent notochord and ossified arcocentra is the primitive condition for Gnathostomata; it still persists in primitive actinopterygians and sarcopterygians.Expand

Multi-locus phylogenetic analysis reveals the pattern and tempo of bony fish evolution
Over half of all vertebrates are “fishes”, which exhibit enormous diversity in morphology, physiology, behavior, reproductive biology, and ecology. Investigation of fundamental areas of vertebrateExpand

Jaws and teeth of american cichlids (Pisces: Labroidei)
The morphology of the upper, lower, and pharyngeal jaws is very similar among American cichlids. Common conditions are: (1) the presence of a premaxillary dentigerous arm shorter than the ascendingExpand

  • 1 August 1990
Studies of ontogenetic series of trichomycterids and other catfishes reveal that the suspensorium of siluroids is highly specialized; several synapomorphies separate siluroids from other teleosts. InExpand
