A CHECKLIST OF THE FISHES OF SOUTHERN TAIWAN, NORTHERN SOUTH CHINA SEA
There are 317 new record species that were not included in the checklist of Randall & Lim (2000) and 45 species that are new addition to the fi sh fauna of SCS.
Evolutionary history of anglerfishes (Teleostei: Lophiiformes): a mitogenomic perspective
The acquisition of novel features, such as male dwarfism, bioluminescent lures, and unique reproductive modes allowed the deep-sea ceratioids to diversify rapidly in a largely unexploited, food-poor bathypelagic zone relative to the other lophiiforms occurring in shallow coastal areas.
Annotated checklist and type catalog of fish genera and species described from Taiwan
Annotated checklist and type catalog of fish genera and species collected from Taiwan is presented.
Revision of the genus Centrophorus (Squaliformes: Centrophoridae): Part 1--Redescription of Centrophorus granulosus (Bloch & Schneider), a senior synonym of C. acus Garman and C. niaukang Teng.
Centrophorus granulosus is redescribed as a large species and a neotype is designated and Ontogenetic changes in morphology, dentition and denticle shape for this species are described in detail.
Introduction to the systematics and biodiversity of sharks, rays, and chimaeras (Chondrichthyes) of Taiwan.
The overall species diversity of Taiwan's chondrichthyan fauna is comparable to that of other adjacent marine zoogeographic hotspots, e.g. Japan, and each of these groups may increase in relative diversity with improved taxonomic resolution resulting from the incorporation of molecular tools and renewed morphological studies.
Revision of the worm eel genus Neenchelys (Ophichthidae: Myrophinae), with descriptions of three new species from the western Pacific Ocean
Totally, nine species are recognized in Neenchelys, including three new species, with most species showing range extension in the Indo-west Pacific region.
A DNA sequence-based identification checklist for Taiwanese chondrichthyans.
Results show a number of noteworthy findings indicating distinct population differences or cryptic diversity and enhance published data with 22 new species not analyzed so far.
Photon Hunting in the Twilight Zone: Visual Features of Mesopelagic Bioluminescent Sharks
Comparisons with previously published data reveal ocular differences between bioluminescent and non-bioluminecent deep-sea sharks, and biolumerinescent sharks possess higher rod densities, which might provide them with improved temporal resolution particularly useful for biolUMinescent communication during social interactions.
An annotated checklist of the chondrichthyans of Taiwan.
This represents the first detailed, evidence-based checklist of chondrichthyans from Taiwanese waters in over 40 years and contains verified voucher material for each species where available and potential taxonomic issues are high-lighted when applicable.
Redescription of Hexanchus nakamurai Teng 1962, (Chondrichthyes: Hexanchiformes: Hexanchidae), with designation of a neotype.
A neotype is herein designated and the species redescribed based on the neotype and eight additional Taiwanese specimens, and it is indicated that the western North Atlantic H. nakamurai (= ? H. vitulus) may be distinct from western Indian Ocean H. griseus.
