Comparative biogeography : discovering and classifying biogeographical patterns of a dynamic Earth by Lynne R Parenti( )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To unravel the complex shared history of the Earth and its life forms, biogeographers analyze patterns of biodiversity, species distribution, and geological history. So far, the field of biogeography has been fragmented into divergent systematic and evolutionary approaches, with no overarching or unifying research theme or method. In this text, Lynne Parenti and Malte Ebach address this discord and outline comparative tools to unify biogeography. Rooted in phylogenetic systematics, this comparative biogeographic approach offers a comprehensive empirical framework for discovering and deciphering the patterns and processes of the distribution of life on Earth. The authors cover biogeography from its fundamental ideas to the most effective ways to implement them. Real-life examples illustrate concepts and problems, including the first comparative biogeographical analysis of the Indo-West Pacific, an introduction to biogeographical concepts rooted in the earth sciences, and the integration of phylogeny, evolution and earth history."--Publisher's description
Cladistic biogeography : interpreting patterns of plant and animal distributions by C. J Humphries( Book )

39 editions published between 1985 and 2001 in English and Chinese and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The distribution and classification of life on earth has long been of interest to biological theorists, as well as to travellers and explorers. Cladistic biogeography is the study of the historical and evolutionary relationships between taxa, based on their particular distribution patterns across the earth. Analysis of the distribution patterns of the taxa in different areas of the world can tell us how the areas are related, what regions or larger groups of areas exist, and what their shared history might be." "Cladistic Biogeography (second edition) provides a concise exposition of the history, methods, applications of, and prospects for cladistic biogeography, together with a comprehensive bibliography."--Jacket
Interrelationships of fishes( Book )

5 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comprising by far the largest and most diverse group of vertebrates, fishes occupy a broad swathe of habitats ranging from the deepest ocean abyss to the highest mountain lakes. Such incredible ecological diversity and the resultant variety in lifestyle, anatomy, physiology and behavior, make unraveling the evolutionary history of fishes a daunting task. The successor of a classic volume by the same title, Interrelationships of Fishes, provides the latest in the "state of the art" of systematics and classification for many of the major groups of fishes. In providing a sound phylogenetic framework from leading authorities in the field, this book is an indispensable reference for a broad range of biologists, especially students of fish behavior, anatomy, physiology, molecular biology, genetics and ecology--in fact, anyone who wishes to interpret their work on fishes in an evolutionary context. * Provides thorough and comprehensive treatment of the Phylogency of fishes * Assembles an International team of expert contributors * Useful to a wide variety of fish biologists
Catalog of type specimens of recent fishes in the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution by Lynne R Parenti( Book )

Ecology of the marine fishes of Cuba by Rodolfo Claro( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Situated at the convergence of the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico, Cuba's coastal waters are home to one of the most diverse fish faunas in the Western Hemisphere. However, until now, information in English about Cuban marine fishes and their habitats has been limited. This comprehensive guide to the region's fishes fills that void. Originally published in Spanish in 1994, Ecology of the Marine Fishes of Cuba has been completely updated and revised for this English edition. The book collects and expands on the findings of more than 20 years of work by and internationa
Ichthyo : the architecture of fish : X-rays from the Smithsonian Institution by D Pauly( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally created to preserve a record of scientific samples, the black and white X-rays of fish at the Smithsonian Institution have emerged as astonishing works of art in their own right. ... As mesmerizingly beautiful as they are amazingly detailed, these images reveal the hidden wonders of the creatures of the deep.-publisher description
