One such duplication has been implicated in the evolution of teleost fishes, by far the most species-rich vertebrate clade. Functional constraints on morphological evolution. [76], Protandry is when an individual starts out male and becomes female while the reverse condition is known as protogyny, the latter being more common. [33] The snubnosed eel, though usually a scavenger, sometimes bores into the flesh of a fish, and has been found inside the heart of a shortfin mako shark. They have thin leaf-shaped larvae known as leptocephali, specialised for a marine environment. A small number of species such as herring, cod, pollock, anchovy, tuna and mackerel provide people with millions of tons of food per year, while many other species are fished in smaller amounts. [31], Some teleosts are parasites. This element has a basibranchial behind it, and both structures have large teeth which are paired with the teeth on the parasphenoid in the roof of the mouth. Phylogeny information from: Wiley, E. O. and Johnson, G. D. 2010. Filial cannibalism occurs in some teleost families and may have evolved to combat starvation. Some killifishes, for example, confined to annual ponds in Africa and South America, live only the few months during the rainy season that their ponds retain water. Individuals of one sex, usually males develop secondary sexual characteristics that increase their chances of reproductive success. [97], Human activities have affected stocks of many species of teleost, through overfishing,[103] pollution and global warming. In a number of teleosts the eggs are incubated, or brooded, in the mouth of the male for periods as long as 80 days. Many fish also have chemoreceptors responsible for acute senses of taste and smell. Many freshwater and marine teleosts lay eggs on rocks or aquatic plants, the male and sometimes the female defending the eggs and even the young against predators. Arratia, G.2004. [58], A typical teleost fish has a streamlined body for rapid swimming, and locomotion is generally provided by a lateral undulation of the hindmost part of the trunk and the tail, propelling the fish through the water. [109], Teleost fishes have been frequent subjects in art, reflecting their economic importance, for at least 14,000 years. This is because the physiological changes that come with reproduction eventually lead to death. The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization expects production to increase sharply so that by 2030, perhaps sixty-two percent of food fish will be farmed. [77] With sequential hermaphroditism, individuals may function as one sex early in their adult life and switch later in life. 472–73, Helfman, Collete, Facey and Bowen pp. [59] There are many exceptions to this method of locomotion, especially where speed is not the main objective; among rocks and on coral reefs, slow swimming with great manoeuvrability may be a desirable attribute. Teleost fish reproduce sexually and have a number of strategies to guide their young... Diversity and evolution. In the 20th century, different artists such as Klee, Magritte, Matisse and Picasso used representations of teleosts to express radically different themes, from attractive to violent. Gobies "hop" along the substrate, propping themselves up and propelling themselves with their pectoral fins. Indeed, these fishes vary more in structure and behaviour than do all the mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians combined. This is of great advantage, enabling them to grab prey and draw it into the mouth. The lower jaw and maxilla are then pulled back to close the mouth, and the fish is able to grasp the prey. Selective pressure analysis on piRNA pathway and miRNA/siRNA (microRNA/small interfering RNA) pathway genes between teleosts and mammals showed an accelerated evolution of piRNA pathway genes in the teleost lineages, and positive selection on functional PAZ (Piwi/Ago/Zwille) and Tudor domains involved in the Piwi-piRNA/Tudor interaction, suggesting that the amino acid substitutions are … In contrast, the Esociformes (pikes) are limited to freshwater in the Northern Hemisphere, while the Salmoniformes (salmon, trout) are found in both Northern and Southern temperate zones in freshwater, some species migrating to and from the sea. The paired pelvic or ventral fins and the paired pectoral fins behind the head are used to help stabilize the body and to turn the fish. In Characiformes, the adipose fin develops from an outgrowth after the reduction of the larval fin fold, while in Salmoniformes, the fin appears to be a remnant of the fold. Many of these fishes will live two, three, or four years or more, usually spawning in the spring in temperate regions and in the rainy season in the tropics. [13][14] Approximate dates are from Near et al., 2012. Changing sex can occur in various contexts. Teleosts display remarkable variation in their modes of reproduction, and this volume is intended to provide a framework for understanding the remarkable reproductive diversity of this group. The timing of the release of young varies between species; some mouthbrooders release new-hatched young while other may keep then until they are juveniles. Including not only torpedo-shaped fish built for speed, teleosts can be flattened vertically or horizontally, be elongated cylinders or take specialised shapes as in anglerfish and seahorses. In some species an individual is a male during the early part of its adult life and a female later or vice versa (sequential hermaphroditism). Other fish, such as knifefish, generate weak varying electric fields to detect their prey; they swim with straight backs to avoid distorting their electric fields. Responses do not consist only of attempting to hide or flee; antipredator tactics include for example scattering and reassembling. The wolf fish has a XY multifactorial system where females are determined by X1X1X2X2 and the male by X1X2Y. Teleosts are economically important to humans, as is shown by their depiction in art over the centuries. [5], The pharyngeal jaws of teleosts, a second set of jaws contained within the throat, are composed of five branchial arches, loops of bone which support the gills. Some, like eeltail catfish (Plotosidae), scorpionfish (Scorpaenidae) or stonefish (Synanceiidae) have venomous spines that can seriously injure or kill humans. [68], There are two major reproductive strategies of teleosts; semelparity and iteroparity. [70] Courtship in teleosts plays a role in species recognition, strengthening pair bonds, spawning site position and gamete release synchronisation. Mudskippers can remain out of water for considerable periods, exchanging gases through skin and mucous membranes in the mouth and pharynx. [20], There are over 26,000 species of teleosts, in about 40 orders and 448 families,[21] making up 96% of all extant species of fish. [12] The teleosts are divided into the major clades shown on the cladogram,[15] with dates, following Near et al. In 1966, Greenwood et al. As aquarium subjects, both marine and, especially, small freshwater teleosts provide aesthetic beauty for millions of aquarists, supporting a multimillion-dollar industry. It is often absent in fast-swimming fishes such as the tuna and mackerel. [92], At the juvenile stage, a teleost looks more like its adult form. New insights gained from different teleost species and sequencing projects have recently revealed several peculiar features of fish genomes that might have played a role in fish evolution and speciation. Along with the chondrosteans and the holosteans, they are one of the three major subdivisions of the class Actinopterygii, the most advanced of the bony fishes. Other bones further back in the mouth serve to grind and swallow food. In more derived teleosts, the enlarged premaxilla is the main tooth-bearing bone, and the maxilla, which is attached to the lower jaw, acts as a lever, pushing and pulling the premaxilla as the mouth is opened and closed. ", "Franz Josef Land: extreme northern outpost for Arctic fishes", "What is an anadromous fish? Semelparity is also known to occur in some eels and smelts. J. Vert. Smaller satellite males mimic female behaviour and coloration to access a nest and fertilise the eggs. The fourth arch is composed of pairs of ceratobranchials and epibranchials, and sometimes additionally, some pharyngobranchials and a basibranchial. Arratia, G. 2001. The larvae are at first bilaterally symmetrical but they undergo metamorphosis during the course of their development, with one eye migrating to the other side of the head, and they simultaneously start swimming on their side. In clownfish, individuals live in groups and only the two largest in a group breed: the largest female and the largest male. The difference between teleosts and other bony fish lies mainly in their jaw bones; teleosts have a movable premaxilla and corresponding modifications in the jaw musculature which make it possible for them to protrude their jaws outwards from the mouth. The base of the lower pharyngeal jaws is formed by the fifth ceratobranchials while the second, third and fourth pharyngobranchials create the base of the upper. Substrate spawning commonly occurs in nests, rock crevices or even burrows. [5], The adipose fin, which is present in over 6,000 teleost species, is often thought to have evolved once in the lineage and to have been lost multiple times due to its limited function. [75], Some teleost species are hermaphroditic, which can come in two forms: simultaneous and sequential. [89] Some teleost species have their eggs or young attached to or carried in their bodies. Organisms are made up of many interacting structural and physiological parts that work together to perform life’s tasks, including feeding, evading predators, and reproducing. The European flounder spends most of its life in the sea but often migrates into estuaries and rivers. The head of the fish must be adapted for feeding, breathing, and detecting prey and enemies. For sea catfishes, cardinalfishes, jawfishes and some others, the egg may be incubated or carried in the mouth, a practice known as mouthbrooding. Polygyny, where one male breeds with multiple females, is much more common. [9] The name is from Greek teleios, "complete" + osteon, "bone". In monogamous species, males and females may form pair bonds and breed exclusively with their partners. Experiments with mazes show that fish possess the spatial memory needed to make such a mental map. A catadromous fish? 21(4): 767-773. The spine ends at the caudal peduncle, the base of the caudal fin, distinguishing this group from those in which the spine extends into the upper lobe of the caudal fin, such as most fish from the Paleozoic (541 to 252 million years ago). Navigate parenthood with the help of the Raising Curious Learners podcast. The fish, however, can eject undesirable particles and water out the mouth by special action. Some of these species, like the live-bearing aquarium fish in the family Poeciliidae, are ovoviviparous; each egg has a yolk sac which nourishes the developing embryo, and when this is exhausted, the egg hatches and the larva is expelled into the water column. For the Atlantic silverside, spawning in colder waters creates more females, while warmer waters create more males. Teleost fish and older evolutionary classes such as cyclostomes and Chondrichthyes (and other ectothermal vertebrates) retain a sinus venosus (see Section 3.1.2). In many vertebrates other than mammals, especially reptiles and birds, the cephalic, or head, end of the cloaca is partitioned by folds into a…, …others, make viviparity possible among teleost fishes. Sneaker males also exist in Oncorhynchus salmon, where small males that were unable to establish a position near a female dash in while the large dominant male is spawning with the female. [9][11] The oldest teleost fossils date back to the late Triassic, evolving from fish related to the bowfins in the clade Holostei. The teleosts were first recognised as a distinct group by the German ichthyologist Johannes Peter Müller in 1844. [57] The Chondrostei such as sturgeons also have a swim bladder, but this appears to have evolved separately: other Actinopterygii such as the bowfin and the bichir do not have one, so swim bladders appear to have arisen twice, and the teleost swim bladder is not homologous with the chondrostean one. Their skeletal structure has evolved towards greater lightness. The structure of the tail and the efficiency of the swimming mechanism are the prime characters that distinguish teleosts from other, “lower,” fishes. Study of the details of teleost behaviour has been greatly increased in the last several decades. Genome Res 17:1448–1457 PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar Sato Y, Miyasaka N, Yoshihara Y (2005) Mutually exclusive glomerular innervation by two distinct types of olfactory sensory neurons revealed in … Teleostei /tɛliːˈɒstiːaɪ/ (Greek: teleios "complete" + osteon "bone"), members of which are known as teleosts /ˈtɛliːɒsts/, is by far the largest infraclass in the class Actinopterygii, the ray-finned fishes,[a] containing 96% of all extant species of fish. [36], Some teleosts are migratory; certain freshwater species move within river systems on an annual basis; other species are anadromous, spending their lives at sea and moving inland to spawn, salmon and striped bass being examples. 274–276. Duplicated Gene Evolution Following Whole-Genome Duplication in Teleost Fish 33 2004), and calculated DNA alignments from protein alignments with RevTrans (Wernersson and Pedersen 2003). Other adaptations of tuna for speed include a streamlined, spindle-shaped body, fins designed to reduce drag,[53][54] and muscles with a raised myoglobin content, which gives these a reddish colour and makes for a more efficient use of oxygen. Some like the foureye butterflyfish have eyespots to startle or deceive, while others such as lionfish have aposematic coloration to warn that they are toxic or have venomous spines. Most teleost lineages for which data are available include representatives with known chromosomal sex determination . Teleosts have adopted a range of reproductive strategies.

Fish oils are made either from fish liver, especially rich in vitamins A and D, or from the bodies of oily fish such as sardine and herring, and used as food supplements and to treat vitamin deficiencies. Rockfish appear to be the longest living teleosts with some species living over 100 years. Near et al. [64], To attract mates, some teleosts produce sounds, either by stridulation or by vibrating the swim bladder. In some teleosts, both genetics and the environment play a role in determining sex. Saraiva LR, Korsching SI (2007) A novel olfactory receptor gene family in teleost fish. (2012) explored the phylogeny and divergence times of every major lineage, analysing the DNA sequences of 9 unlinked genes in 232 species. [22] Approximately 12,000 of the total 26,000 species are found in freshwater habitats. This has the advantage that, when they lie on the seabed, both eyes are on top, giving them a broad field of view. Isinglass is made from thread fish and drum fish. Forward motion is provided by bending of the body and caudal fin; waves of muscular action pass from the head to the tail, pushing the sides of the body and tail against the water and forcing the fish forward. If she is removed, the next ranking female takes her place. [85][86] Male territoriality "preadapts" a species to evolve male parental care. The oldest teleost fossils date back to the late Triassic. [10] Müller based this classification on certain soft tissue characteristics, which would prove to be problematic, as it did not take into account the distinguishing features of fossil teleosts. 149, Helfman, Collete, Facey and Bowen pp. Rhodopsin gene evolution in early teleost fishes Rhodopsin mediates an essential step in image capture and is tightly associated with visual adaptations of aquatic organisms, especially species that live in dim light environments (e.g., the deep sea). Brood parasitism also exists among teleosts; minnows may spawn in sunfish nests as well as nests of other minnow species. [84], Of the oviparous teleosts, most (79 percent) do not provide parental care. Reef fish live in a complex, relatively confined underwater landscape and for them, manoeuvrability is more important than speed, and many of them have developed bodies which optimize their ability to dart and change direction. The first three arches include a single basibranchial surrounded by two hypobranchials, ceratobranchials, epibranchials and pharyngobranchials. When a predator has been noticed, prey fish respond defensively, resulting in collective shoal behaviours such as synchronised movements. They have a yolk sac attached to them which provides nutrients. [63] Flying fish launch themselves into the air and can glide on their enlarged pectoral fins for hundreds of metres. [38] The fresh water European eel migrates across the Atlantic Ocean as an adult to breed in floating seaweed in the Sargasso Sea. Another difference is that the upper and lower lobes of the tail (caudal) fin are about equal in size. Temperature is the main factor, but PH levels, growth rate, density and social environment may also play a role.

Ostraciontes by Ernst Haeckel, 1904. In some teleosts the alimentary, genital, and urinary tracts open independently. Medaka and zebrafish are used as research models for studies in genetics and developmental biology. The zebrafish is the most commonly used laboratory vertebrate,[97] offering the advantages of genetic similarity to mammals, small size, simple environmental needs, transparent larvae permitting non-invasive imaging, plentiful offspring, rapid growth, and the ability to absorb mutagens added to their water. The sister-group of Teleostei: Concensus and disagrements. For example, increased winter precipitation (rain and snow) could harm populations of freshwater fish in Norway, whereas warmer summers could increase growth of adult fish. teleost fish species. They have reduced growth rate but gain protection from predators. Other males, known as sneaker males, lurk nearby and then quickly dash to the nest, fertilising on the run. [105], The effects of climate change on teleosts could be powerful but are complex. The most basal of the living teleosts are the Elopomorpha (eels and allies) and the Osteoglossomorpha (elephantfishes and allies). Teleost fish species that inhabit colder waters have a higher proportion of unsaturated fatty acids in brain cell membranes compared to fish from warmer waters, which allows them to maintain appropriate membrane fluidity in the environments in which they live[51]. 153–56, CS1 maint: multiple names: authors list (, protrude their jaws outwards from the mouth, "Über den Bau und die Grenzen der Ganoiden, und über das natürliche System der Fische", Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History, "The Evolution of Fishes After the Devonian", "The branchial basket in Teleost feeding", "Resolution of ray-finned fish phylogeny and timing of diversification", "The Tree of Life and a New Classification of Bony Fishes", 10.1371/currents.tol.53ba26640df0ccaee75bb165c8c26288, Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society, "Phylogenetic Classification of Bony Fishes Version 4", "Body-shape diversity in Triassic–Early Cretaceous neopterygian fishes: sustained holostean disparity and predominantly gradual increases in teleost phenotypic variety", "Locomotor function of the dorsal fin in teleost fishes: experimental analysis of wake forces in sunfish", "The origins of adipose fins: an analysis of homoplasy and the serial homology of vertebrate appendages", "Bigmouth Buffalo Ictiobus cyprinellus sets freshwater teleost record as improved age analysis reveals centenarian longevity", Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie, "Scientists Describe the World's Smallest, Lightest Fish", "Asymmetric craniofacial remodeling and lateralized behavior in larval flatfish", "How does the Remora develop its sucker? Paxillin Gene … Others, such as the Pacific salmon, hatch from eggs laid in the gravel of cool temperate-zone streams, spend their first year growing in the streams, then enter the sea to grow and migrate for two, three, or four years, and finally return to the streams where they first grew up. The 200 species of osteoglossomorphs are defined by a bony element in the tongue. Clupeiformes consists of 350 living species of herring and herring-like fishes. Again, it is usually the males that are brightly coloured; in killifishes, rainbowfishes and wrasses the colours are permanent while in species like minnows, sticklebacks, darters and sunfishes, the colour changes with seasons. For example, the darter characine has a ZW multifactorial system where the female is determined by ZW1W2 and the male by ZZ. Apart from the swim bladder, which contains a small amount of air, the body does not have oxygen reserves, and respiration needs to be continuous over the fish's life. Teleost fishes are adapted to widely varied habitats from cold Arctic and Antarctic oceans that remain colder than the freezing point of fresh water to desert hot springs that reach temperatures over 38 °C (100 °F). Water column spawners are mostly limited to coral reefs; the fish will rush towards the surface and release their gametes. netic tree revealed interesting insights into the evolution of the Paxillin family. [32] More harmful are the catfish that enter the gill chambers of fish and feed on their blood and tissues. The teleost head is efficient in having eyes and organs for the sense of smell located in optimum spots for seeing and smelling food. [55] In polar regions and in the deep ocean, where the temperature is a few degrees above freezing point, some large fish, such as the swordfish, marlin and tuna, have a heating mechanism which raises the temperature of the brain and eye, allowing them significantly better vision than their cold-blooded prey. These males are smaller than satellite males. They have also developed a muscle that allows the pharyngeal jaws to have a role in grinding food in addition to transporting it. Some teleosts exploit habitats where the oxygen availability is low, such as stagnant water or wet mud; they have developed accessory tissues and organs to support gas exchange in these habitats. The behaviour of teleosts is as varied as their other attributes. Many marine shore and freshwater fishes establish territories during the breeding season, and some may travel in relatively loose schools or shoals when not breeding. Müller based this classification on certain soft tissue characteristics, which would prove to be problematic, as it did not take into account the distinguishing features of fossil teleosts.
