Memoirs of the Carnegie Museum, 1913-1914, Vol. 6 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Memoirs of the Carnegie Museum, 1913-1914, Vol. 6 The Sixth Volume of thc Memoirs is composed of papers dealing exclusively with fossil and recent fishes. This is the result of more chance. The various papers dealing with these animals happened to be ready for publication and were taken up and incorporated in the volume as they were presented by their authors. From an ichthyological standpoint the amount of information contained in the pages of this book is very great, and the results of the researches embodied in its pages mark a decided advance in our knowledge of the subjects treated. No less than fifty - four species of recent fishes are described as new to science, and there are thirteen species of fossil fishes which are for the first time described. Several new genera have been erected by the authors who have contributed to the volume. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
