Morphological evolution and diversity of pectoral fin skeletons in teleosts

Yoshitaka Tanaka, Hiroki Miura, Koji Tamura & Gembu Abe
Abstract The Teleostei class has the most species of the fishes. Members of this group have pectoral fins, enabling refined movements in the water. Although teleosts live in a diverse set of environments, the skeletal pattern of pectoral fins in teleosts is considered to show little morphological variability. Here, in order to elucidate variations in pectoral fin skeletons and to identify their evolutionary processes, we compared the pectoral fin skeletons from 27 species of teleosts....
