About this book

Language: Spanish

With fifty species, the fish fauna of the Argentine province of Córdoba brings together representatives of nine of the fourteen large groups or orders of fish that inhabit the fresh waters of the Argentine Republic. These species are presented in this work, which attempts to facilitate their recognition through colour photos of each of them and a description of them based on easily observable morphological characters. It also provides details of the colouration and maximum size reached by the fish considered, as well as known data on their life history, diet, habits, reproduction, etc. Finally, through maps where the finding of each species is recorded, an overview of their distribution is provided, which, although inevitably incomplete, allows a fairly accurate general idea of ​​the presence of the different fish in the Córdoba geography.

This work is aimed at students in the natural sciences and naturalists more generally. Without being a fishing book, the authors consider that it can provide information of interest to those who practice this activity. Finally, it is hoped that this book will not only allow us to know Argentine's fish wealth, but also help readers to understand the importance of protecting and conserving this faunal heritage for future generations.

The book covers the following orders:
- Order Cypriniformes
- Order Characiformes
- Order Siluriformes
- Order Gymnotiformes
- Order Salmoniformes
- Order Atheriniformes
- Order Cyprinodontiformes
- Order Synbranchiformes
- Order Perciformes

Summary in Spanish:
Con medio centenar de especies, la fauna íctica de la provincia de Córdoba reúne representantes de nueve de los catorce grandes grupos u órdenes de peces que habitan las aguas dulces de la República Argentina. Estas especies son presentadas en esta obra, la cual intenta facilitar su reconocimiento a través de la fotografía en colores de cada una de ellas y una descripción de las mismas en base a caracteres morfológicos fácilmente observables. Se brindan además, detalles de la coloración y talla máxima alcanzada por los peces considerados, así como datos conocidos de su historia de vida, alimentación, costumbres, reproducción etc. Finalmente mediante mapas donde se registra el hallazgo de cada especie, se brinda un panorama de la distribución de las mismas, el cual, si bien inevitablemente incompleto, permite tener una idea general bastante ajustada de la presencia de los distintos peces en la geografía cordobesa.

Esta obra está dirigida a los alumnos de carreras relacionadas con las Ciencias Naturales y a toda aquella persona amante de la Naturaleza y sus criaturas. Sin ser un libro de pesca, los autores consideran que puede aportar datos de interés para quienes practican esta actividad. Finalmente, cabe esperar que su lectura permita no solamente conocer nuestra riqueza íctica, sino también ayude a comprender la importancia de proteger y conservar este patrimonio faunístico para las generaciones venideras.

Este libro contiene el desarrollo de los siguientes temas:
- Orden Cypriniformes
- Orden Characiformes
- Orden Siluriformes
- Orden Gymnotiformes
- Orden Salmoniformes
- Orden Atheriniformes
- Orden Cyprinodontiformes
- Orden Synbranchiformes
- Orden Perciformes
