Bony and Cartilaginous Fishes

  • Brian K. Hall


In this chapter, I summarize the little we know about the neural crest in bony and cartilaginous fishes. This does not imply that fish form a natural group of vertebrates or that the various groups of fishes are more closely related to one another than to other vertebrates. The studies available are primarily on teleost fishes and elasmobranchs (sharks, dogfish, and rays).
