By J. A. Moy-Thomas
I've got revised Moy-Thomas's prevalent e-book on Palaeozoic fishes in an try and contain many of the substantial advances which have been made during this box over the past 30 years, that have in a few respects made the 1st variation heavily out-of-date. The e-book is now unavoidably longer, yet its scope continues to be an analogous and the unique technique has been major tained so far as attainable. i've got, notwithstanding, undertaken a certain quantity ofre association of the contents, consonant with our altering perspectives of fish evolution, and feature attempted to mirror a few of the present preoccupations of scholars of fish evolution in increased sections on mode of existence and relation ships. The illustrations were thoroughly changed, and in deciding upon the figures i've been confronted with an embarrassing richness of resource fabric. In an try and hold the figures right down to an affordable quantity, i've got made up our minds that it really is larger to have a number of species illustrated with transparent drawings than supply thumb-nail sketches of all of the varieties pointed out within the textual content, and so far as attainable to limit the illustrations to Palaeozoic species. the entire illustrations were redrawn to a standard variety, and occasionally they've been particularly ready or transformed for this ebook. Authors' names are actually incorporated within the textual content and an inventory of references is given on the finish of every bankruptcy.
