The brain organization of butterflyfishes
SynopsisThe encephalization indices of angelfishes (Pomacanthidae) and butterflyfishes (Chaetodontidae) are typical of advanced perciform fishes: both families lie in the upper part of the polygon ofExpand
Encephalization in tropical teleost fishes and comparison with their mode of life.
TLDR
There is a general trend for the more highly evolved fishes to have larger brains, but this is partially obscured by some high values in certain primitive groups and low ones in the more advanced. Expand
The brain organization of butterflyfishes
TLDR
The quantitative analysis of the main subdivisions of the brain, either from relative volumes or from indices, shows small olfactory bulbs but important telencephalic and diencephalic centres, large tectal centres (vision) and large cerebellum (precise locomotion). Expand
The membranous labyrinth and its innervation inChaetodon trifasciatus (Pisces, Teleostei, Chaetodontidae)
SynopsisIn the butterflyfishChaetodon trifasciatus, the labyrinth is characterized by its elevated form and especially the size of the vertical canals, the almost circular form of the horizontalExpand
Clarification of the two Indo-Pacific species of bonefishes, Albula glossodonta and A. forsteri
Shaklee et Tamaru (1981) reconnaissent deux especes d'Albula dans les eaux hawaiennes: A. glossodonta (Forsskal, 1775) et A. neoguinaica Valenciennes, 1847, especes distribuees egalement dans laExpand
Encephalization in Gobioidei (Teleostei)
TLDR
It is shown that the form of the body has an effect on the degree of encephalization, and elongate fishes have low values, probably because of the excessive mass of their body skeleton which raises the body weight relative to the brain size. Expand
