Morphological and biochemical systematics of Australian freshwater and estuarine fishes of the family Percichthyidae

MacDonald, C.M.


The taxonomy and evolutionary relationships of six Australian species of the family Percichthyidae have been investigated using data obtained from comparative morphological examination of preserved specimens and from electrophoretic detection of variation in proteins extracted from liver and muscle tissue. Members of the genera Maaaulloahella, Pleatroplites Maaquaria and Peraalates form a group of generalised percoid species that have presumably colonised Australian freshwaters from...[Show more]
