Take your knowledge of fishes to the next level
Fishes of the World, Fifth Edition is the only modern, phylogenetically based classification of the world’s fishes. The updated text offers new phylogenetic diagrams that clarify the relationships among fish groups, as well as cutting-edge global knowledge that brings this classic reference up to date. With this resource, you can classify orders, families, and genera of fishes, understand the connections among fish groups, organize fishes in their evolutionary context, and imagine new areas of research. To further assist your work, this text provides representative drawings, many of them new, for most families of fishes, allowing you to make visual connections to the information as you read. It also contains many references to the classical as well as the most up-to-date literature on fish relationships, based on both morphology and molecular biology.
The study of fishes is one that certainly requires dedication—and access to reliable, accurate information. With more than 30,000 known species of sharks, rays, and bony fishes, both lobe-finned and ray-finned, you will need to master your area of study with the assistance of the best reference materials available. This text will help you bring your knowledge of fishes to the next level.

... in Joe being selected, at the 2002 ASIH meetings in Kansas City, Missouri, as the recipient of the prestigious Robert H. Gibbs Award, presented by the society “for an outstanding body of published work in systematic ichthyology.
This was validation of our place in the field of systematic ichthyology. A decade passed between the second and third editions. Cladistic analysis and classification, once considered rogue, were now mainstream in systematic ichthyology.
... to help search through the enormous volume of systematic and taxonomic publications that had appeared since 2005. ... the field of ichthyology has seen an explosion of published research, molecular systematics has become mainstream, ...
Transformative technologies in both morphology (e.g., 3-D scanning and imaging) and molecular systematics (e.g., Next-Gen Sequencing) are yielding their first results and promise to advance the field even further.
Systematics is the study of biological diversity, including reconstructing the phylogenetic (genealogical) relationships of organisms. Taxonomy is that part of systematics dealing with the theory and practice of describing diversity and ...
