Zoogeography and biodiversity of the freshwater fishes of Southeast Asia
The ichthyofauna of the freshwater system of Southeast Asia is extremely diverse. A recent estimate of about 1000 species is probably an understatement. More than 10 new species are being added toExpand
The Occurrence of Pangasius polyuranodon Bleeker, 1852 (Teleostei: Pangasiidae) in Peninsular Malaysia with Remarks on the Comparative Morphology with Pseudolais micronemus (Bleeker, 1847)
Pangasius polyuranodon can be positively distinguished from P. micronemus with a combination of characters: Distinctive palatal dentition with a large nearly squared vomerine tooth patch with small lateral palatine toothplates, thus necessitating different management and conservation strategies.

Genetic variability and estimation of effective population sizes of the natural populations of green arowana , Scleropages formosus in Peninsular Malaysia
Microsatellite markers and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequences were used to assess the genetic variability and to estimate genetic effective population sizes of the natural populations of greenExpand
Spawning period and fecundity of Neolissochilus soroides (Duncker, 1904)(Pisces, Teleostei, Cyprinidae) from a small Malaysian stream
The high numbers of ripening and ripe oocytes observed during the wet seasons and the oocyte diameter distribution indicate that the species is a total spawner, with batches of ripe oocyte that are released over an extended time period. Expand
Diversity and distribution of Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies) in the fresh water swamp lake Tasek Bera, Malaysia
This study added 35 species to the odonate records and together with the museum records, the number of species for the site now stands at 78 from 12 families, with the causal factors for the absence of 19 species discussed. Expand
Genetic Analysis of Arowana (Scleropages formosus, Osteoglossidae) in Two Major Habitats at the Tasik Bera Lake, Pahang and at the Endau River, Johor, Malaysia
The genetic data indicate the occurrence of a bottleneck effect in the wild progeny and considerable division among the green arowana. Expand
