Why study neotropical electric fishes? A comprehensive inventory of Gymnotiformes is essential in order to completely understand the full breadth of diversity from all lineages of primary freshwater fishes in the Ostariophysi. In addition, Gymnotiformes are an excellent group to study processes underlying continental scale diversity due to their endemicity, monophyly and asymmetric spec...
Despite constituting valuable source of phylogenetic information, skeletal musculature in the Gymnotiformes has been poorly explored by systematists. Less than 2% of all morphological characters employed in the major phylogenetic analyses with the order derive from the myology. All remaining publications on the musculature of the Gymnotiformes are primarily descriptive and include only ...
Polynemidae is a family of primarily marine fishes with eight genera and 41 extant species. They are globally distributed and can reach up to two meters long. Polynemids have economic importance in regions where their abundance are higher. The phylogenetic allocation of polynemids within Percomorphacea is uncertain and have never been tested based on either morphological or molecular da...
Polynemidae is a family of primarily marine fishes with eight genera and 41 extant species distributed throughout the globe. Some species can reach up to two meters long and have economic importance in specific regions where their abundance is higher. The phylogenetic allocation of polynemids within Percomorphacea is uncertain and their internal relationships have never been explicitly ...
