The Fishes of the Indo-Australian Archipelago free pdf Excerpt from The Fishes of the Indo-Australian Archipelago: III Ostariophysi- II Cyprinoidea Apodes, Synbranchi In continuation of the preceding volume of this series, in which, besides other groups, were treated the Siluroidea, as first suborder of the Order Ostariophysi, the present or third volume of the "Indo-australian fishes" contains the remaining suborder of the Ostariophysi. the Cyprinoidea and the Order Apodes, to which is added the Order Synbranchi. We refer to the introduction of that preceding volume for the geographical limits of the faunistical region, wherefrom the fishes are here described. In the quoted introduction we have also made some remarks about the material in general at our disposal. The following may be added for the present volume. A great part of it, as far as it contains the descriptions of the Cyprinoidea, is devoted to fishes living in the fresh water of streams, brooks, ponds and lakes from the western part of the Indo-australian Archipelago, especially from Sumatra, Borneo, Java and neighbouring Islands, reaching eastwards not farther than Borneo and Sumbawa. The Synbranchi and some of the Apodes have a wider distribution in the fresh water of the Archipelago. The remaining Apodes are inhabitants of the coral reefs, of the sandy and muddy literal region, of the brackish water of aestuaries, of the bottom of deeper water, a few even of the true deep sea. Many live below stones, below blocks of coral or find shelter in crevices of rocks or coral reefs, some burrow in sand or mud, while others are met with in surface water. For the study of the fishes treated in this volume we could dispose of the various collections named in the introduction to the second volume of this series. Since then we received valuable material from Dr. L. Ph. De Bussy from Deli, from Mr. Edward Jacobson from West-Sumatra (Padangsche Bovenand Beneden-Landen), from Mr. P. Buitendijk from the Java Sea, from Mr. G. Herman from Sabang, Pulu Weh. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
