About this book

This series provides full descriptions of all fishes populating European waters, including introduced species and hybrids, and it covers all aspects of their taxonomy, morphoplogy, ecology and relations to man. The treatise has been planned as 9 volumes – depending on the quantity of material volumes may be divided into two or three parts.

Volumes 4 and 5 of the series are devoted to Cyprinidae, the largest family of freshwater fishes not only in Europe, but also in the entire world. Seven subfamilies can presently be recognised as valid, but taxonomic positions of many genera remain uncertain. Five of the seven subfamilies are native to Europe and Transcaucasia.

Volume 5 deals with the members of four of these subfamilies: Acheiloganthinae, Gobioninae, Tincinae and Cyprininae. Part I of this volume contains eight of the 15 genera in these subfamilies, present in Europe, native or introduced. Volume 4 is devoted to the subfamily Leuciscinae, which encompasses by far the largest number of genera and species in Europe. The sections on each species are preceded by general accounts of the families and genera. As far as possible, keys to identify families, genera and species are provided. For easy comparison of the information on different species, the sections are always arranged in the same order. The following information will be provided for every species of fish that occurs in Europe:

- Systematic and Taxonomy: Synonyms, holotype, description, variability, sexual dimorphism, karyotype, biochemical data
- Geographical Distribution: Description and map of distribution, introductions
- Ecology: Habitat, migrations, Feeding habits, age and growth, maturity, early ontogeny, behaviour, important parasites and diseases
- Economic Importance: Sport fishing, commercial Fishing, Fish culture, protection
- Literature
