Fish are gill-bearing aquatic craniate animals that lack limbs with form a sister group to the tunicates, together forming the ed in this definition are the living hagfish, lampreys, and cartilaginous and bony fish as well as various extinct related groups. Tetrapods emerged within lobe-finned fishes, so cladistically they are fish as : Olfactores. A new species of Acanthopotamon Kemp, (Decapoda: Brachyura: Potamidae: Potaminae) from northeastern India, with a key to the species of the genus and notes on their distribution in relation to freshwater ecoregions.

Human genes differ only % on average from their corresponding gorilla genes in their sequence, but there is further difference in how many copies each gene has.

Marques, edition, in EnglishPages: Stingrays, parasites, and neotropical biogeography: a closer look at Brooks et al’s hypotheses concerning the origins of neotropical freshwater rays (Potamotrygonidae). 67% of all freshwater stingrays exported from Manaus, and the latter three species are endemic to areas where gold mines, dams, and large ecotourism projects are in progress.

Hilsdorf, Eric M. Hallerman. Neotropical freshwater stingrays (Batoidea: Potamotrygonidae) host a diversity of parasites, including some, like their hosts, that are marine-derived.

Among the parasites of potamotrygonids, the cestode fauna is the most diverse, with multiple genera having been reported, including genera endemic to the freshwaters of the Neotropics and genera that have cosmopolitan by: 4. The Journal of Parasitology publishes on basic or applied aspects of general, veterinary, or medical parasitology, and epidemiology.

Batoidea is a superorder of cartilaginous fishes commonly known as and their close relatives, the sharks, comprise the subclass are the largest group of cartilaginous fishes, with well over species in 26 families.

Rays are distinguished by their flattened bodies, enlarged pectoral fins that are fused to the head, and gill slits that are placed on their ventral Class: Chondrichthyes. NOTE: although most of the above information was sifted from the scientific literature on Mantas (what little of it there is), I would like to acknowledge and thank Keller and Wendy Laros of "Manta Pacific", Kona, Hawaii, for several exciting discussions about Manta Ray biology and behavior, which — although I didn't realize it at the time — eventually stimulated this synopsis.

Many endemic and sensitive aquatic and terrestrial species, particularly warmwater fishes, freshwater mussels, and migratory birds, are dependent on stream and riparian habitats to complete critical aspects of their life cycles.

There is concern that additional loss and fragmentation of bottomland and riparian forests will further imperil the integrity of these communities.

Fish are very diverse animals and can be categorised in many ways. This article is an overview of some of ways in which fish are categorised. Although most fish species have probably been discovered and described, about new ones are still discovered every year.
