Evolutionary patterns derived from 150 million years of morphological and functional evolution in neopterygian fishes

Abstract:

Neopterygian fishes represent over half of vertebrate richness in the Recent and display staggering phenotypic variety, yet little is known about the first 150 million years of their evolution. Furthermore, neopterygian richness and disparity is highly unevenly partitioned between teleost fishes, with ~29,000 species expressing a plethora of phenotypes, and holostean fishes, with 8 species and just two morphological styles. Fossil phenotypes have the unique ability to illuminate the assemb...
