Synopsis:

This book succinctly reviews phylogenetic debates for fishes by considering the historical background, summarizing the controversies, sorting through and evaluating competing modern phylogenetic proposals, and synthesizing the results for each major fish group. It evaluates the leading hypotheses in terms of their significance and their implications for the comparative biology of fishes. It asks whether phylogeny makes sense and examines its ability to explain the known facts about a group of fishes.
