The study of fossil fishes has advanced significantly over the past few years, giving scientists a rare opportunity to understand the origin and early evolution of major vertebrate groups, ranging from the jawless agnathans to piscine gnathostomes (placoderms, acanthodians, chondrichthyans and osteichthyans).

Morphology, Phylogeny and Paleobiogeography of Fossil Fishes presents recent findings on the morphology, phylogeny and paleobiogeography of fossil fishes, as a tribute to Professor Meemann Chang for her contributions to paleoichthyology and to the study of early vertebrate evolution.

With a foreword by Dr. Henry Gee (Senior Science Editor of Nature), an introduction, 22 research papers by leading vertebrate paleontologists from 14 countries, and 220 photos and illustrations, this book covers important fossil forms ranging from the Paleozoic to the Cenozoic and reflects research advances based on traditional paleontological methods as well as new techniques such as CT scanning.
