Trends in morphological relationships among Gangetic Cyprinids

Arvind Dwivedi, Hariom Verma, Saurabh Dewan & Sushil Verma
Cyprinidae is the predominant and most diverse taxonomic group of freshwater fishes, exhibiting enormous diversity in shape, size and biology. The morphological diversity of Indian Cyprinids especially the Gangetic Cyprinids is largely unquantified. Geometric morphometrics (GM) approach is an efficient tool to quantify overall body shape variations and has wide application in taxonomic, evolutionary and ecological studies. In this study, digital photographs of 47 Cyprinid fish species from Ganga River were used to measure geometric...
