Sample text

In 1997, T. W. Pietsch and W. D. , edited the book Collection Building in Ichthyology and Herpetology, published by the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists, which gave good insights into some of the giants of our past. Some of the history of collection building and the challenges facing natural history museums and biodiversity research in Asia are discussed by Matsuura (2000) and Akiyama et al. (2004). During the history of ichthyology, numerous classifications of fishes have been proposed throughout the world.

The pharyngocutaneous duct opens separately to the exterior, leaving two apertures on the left side instead of one as in all other Myxininae (in which it opens into the left common branchial aperture). Buenos Aires to Tierra del Fuego. Neomyxine biniplicata. A pair of short ventrolateral finfolds behind the branchial region (lateral finfolds are absent in other hagfishes). Cook Strait, New Zealand. Nemamyxine. Anal fin extending anterior to branchial apertures. Two species, one from New Zealand and the other from southern Brazil, Uruguay, and northern Argentina (Mincarone, 2001b).

In both fresh and marine waters, the largest number of species occurs in the tropics. There is a reduction toward the polar areas, although numbers of individuals in certain northern species are large. A great many species of freshwater fishes occur in tropical Africa, southeastern Asia, and the Amazon River—by far the world’s largest river. For a tropical region, Central America has relatively few freshwater species because of the physiography and geological history of the area. Most oceanic islands lack indigenous fishes confined to freshwater, and continental areas recently exposed from the last ice age— for example, northern regions of North America, Europe (especially western Europe), and Asia—tend to have a relatively sparse fish fauna.
