About this book

Language: English

The otolith, an aragonite crystal found in the labyrinth of the inner ear, functions mainly as an aid to the balance and hearing of teleost fishes. The morphology of otolith is species-specific and useful for the identification of fishes. This method is widely applied to systematics, fishery biology, trophic ecology, paleontology and archaeology. In the Otolith Atlas of Taiwan Fishes, a total of 1004 species belonging to 30 orders, 165 families, and 488 genera are presented.
