The wide geographical distribution of the mainly freshwater catfishes has long intrigued the scientific community. This work provides a new insight into the phylogeny and the puzzling biogeographical distribution of catfishes. The important implications for teleost biogeography and plate tectonics are discussed. The results of the author’s cladistic study on catfish higher level phylogeny, together with a revision of the data available concerning different fields such as palaeobiogeography… CONTINUE READING
