MATERIAL AND ACKNOWLEDGMENTS tively) , for the caudal skeleton by Gosline ( 1961) , and for the recurrent facial nerve by Freihofer (1963) . The other approa ch is to study as many characters as possible in a particular percoid group, e. g., the Japanese serranids ( Katayama, 1959) and carangids (Suzuki, 1962) . The present investigation began as an effort to ascertain the systematic position and relationships of a few percoid genera. It soon became apparent that, except within the narrowest… Expand

The osteology and adaptive features of Rhyacichthys aspro (Teleostei: Gobioidei) and the classification of gobioid fishes
TLDR
The systematic position of Rhyacichthys in the suborder Gobioidei is confirmed, and structure of the caudal skeleton in this genus, with other features, is found to support an acanthopterygian rather than paracanthoperygian origin for the gobioid fishes. Expand
Comparative Morphology of the Fishes of the Family Ammodytidae, with a Description of Two New Genera and Two New Species
TLDR
The generic characters of the fishes of the family Ammodytidae are discussed and three new genera and two new species are described, believed to be least derived state among the family. Expand
Origine et Phylogenèse des Poissons Osseux
TLDR
Four main trends characterize the first steps of actinopterygian evolutionary history: lightening of dermal skeleton, strengthening of axial skeleton, reduction of post-orbitary bones, widening of otic region, development of the supra-occipital bone, modification of cranial roof and of mouth structure. Expand
A new primitive acanthomorph fish from the Greenhorn Formation (Late Cretaceous) of Nebraska
ABSTRACT A new acanthomorph genus is described from the Greenhorn Formation (Turonian) of north eastern Nebraska. The type and only specimen of this genus is a nearly complete skull and postcranialExpand
Revision of the labrid fish genus Pseudolabrus and allied genera
Six labrid genera, Austrolabrus Steindachner, Dotalabrus Whitley, Eupetrichthys Ramsay & Ogilby, Notolabrus new genus, Pictilabrus Gill, and Pseudolabrus Bleeker, are recognised as forming aExpand
Structure of the mouth opening and pharyngeal apparatus in three species of Baikal Cottoidei in relation to their feeding
TLDR
Analysis of data demonstrated that the general pattern of structure of the mouth opening and pharyngeal apparatus is similar in the species under study since their food is represented by bottom organisms, mainly by amphipods. Expand
EVOLUTION OF PIGMENT PATTERN DEVELOPMENT IN CENTRARCHID FISHES
TLDR
By observing the development of pigmentation patterns in larval, juvenile, and adult centrarchids, the homologous elements of the lateral barring pattern have been hypothesized and permitted the comparison of pattern ontogenies in a phylogenetic context. Expand
Structural basis of jaw protrusion in the largemouth bass, Micropterus salmoides: a microscopic analysis
TLDR
How the rostral cartilage, the ligaments, and articulations are involved in jaw protrusion is described and Fibrocartilage discs are found in all the joints involved in Jaw protrusion. Expand
Ecological relations in the evolution of acanthopterygian fishes in warm-temperate communities of the northeastern Pacific

TLDR
The species composition of acanthopterygian fishes in warm-temperate communities of the northeastern Pacific reflects the influence of ecological relations on teleostean evolution, with species of the labroid families Pomacentridae, Embiotocidae and Labridae being especially prominent, based mainly on specialized abilities to feed on sessile invertebrates and zooplankters. Expand
Phylogenetic interpretation of ontogenetic change: sorting out the actual and artefactual in an empirical case study of centrarchid fishes
TLDR
It is concluded that the ontogenetic criterion is not a reliable indicator of phylogenetic polarity and it is recommended that alternative classification schemes be pursued. Expand

TLDR
The systematic position of the "pseudogrammid" group of genera to which it belongs is a matter of considerable controversy; the greater part of the present paper will be devoted to this subject. Expand
The subocular shelf of fishes
TLDR
In this study it has been necessary to consider all bones of the circumorbital ring and in so doing a satisfactory working hypothesis is developed of the functional and phylogenetic significance of the subocular shelf. Expand

TLDR
The acanthopterygians of the English Chalk are redescribed, and members of all the genera known by more than one specimen are treated at length, and a new order Ctenothrissiformes is made. Expand
