درباره این کتاب:
work provides a guide and general
overview to the fish fauna of
comprising 85 species in 10
families. The book has an Introduction
covering materials and methods, a
description of the environment, a
history of research, explanations of
scientific names, fish structures and
identification methods, and how to
collect and preserve fishes. Other
sections deal with Fisheries,
Conservation, Identification Keys,
Exotic and Translocated Species,
Checklists, an analysis of Biodiversity,
and a Bibliography. The bulk of the text
is the Species Accounts each of which
has an illustration, an explanation of
common and scientific names, key
characters, morphology, distribution,
biology and importance.
The fauna is a mix of Palaearctic
species such as sturgeons and a trout
and Oriental species such as snakeheads
and a spiny eel. The majority of Afghan
fish, 67 species, are Cypriniformes of
which 49 are Cyprinidae and 17 are
Nemacheilidae (with one species in
Cobitidae). The Siluriformes (Sisoridae,
Siluridae, Bagridae) comprise the next
largest group with 11 species.
Ostariophysi therefore comprise over 91%
of the ichthyofauna. The other 4
families have 1-3 species each.
Many species are poorly known and
there have been few collections made in
this land-locked country. A significant
number of species records are from the
work of John McClelland, published in
1842. It is expected that a thorough
survey would reveal many new species.
