Kurzbeschreibung

The Mesozoic was an important time in the evolution of chondrichthyan and actino­pterygian fishes because it was then that most of the modern groups first entered the fossil record and began to radiate. By the end of the era, many archaic forms had disappeared and the foundation had been laid for the modern diversity of fishes. Despite this significant change, before 1990 there had been little concerted research on Mesozoic fishes and no synopsis or compilation of the systematics and paleoecology of Mesozoic fishes. To remedy this deficiency, Gloria ARRATIA organized the first symposium, “Mesozoic Fishes – Systematics and Paleoecology” in Eichstätt, Germany in 1993, and, with G. VIOHL, edited the first volume in the Mesozoic Fishes series. Published in 1996 included 36 papers about elasmobranchs, actinopterygians, sarcopterygians, and the paleoecology of certain important fossil localities. Gloria ARRATIA and Hans-Peter SCHULTZE organized the second symposium in Buckow, Germany in 1997, and edited the resulting volume “Mesozoic Fishes 2 – Systematics and Fossil Record”, which included 31 papers. Andrea TINTORI, Markus FELBER, and Heinz FURRER organized the third symposium in Serpiano, near Monte San Giorgio, Switzerland in 2001. The results of that symposium included 33 papers edited by G. ARRATIA and A. TINTORI and published in “Mesozoic Fishes 3 – Systematics, Paleoenvironments and Biodiversity”. Francisco POYATO-ARIZA organized the fourth symposium on “Mesozoic Fishes – Systematics, Homology and Nomenclature” in Miraflores de la Sierra, near Madrid, Spain, in 2005. The results of that symposium included 24 papers edited by G. ARRATIA, H.-P. SCHULZE, and M. V. H. WILSON and published in “Mesozoic Fishes 4 – Homology and Phylogeny”.
Rosario GOMEZ, Katia GONZALEZ-RODRIGUEZ, and Jesús ALVARADO-ORTEGA organized the fifth and recent Symposium in the Museum del Desierto, Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico from August 2 to 7, 2010. The results presented in 22 research papers, reflect the current state of knowledge about Mesozoic Fishes, but represent only a fraction of all contributions delivered during the meeting. Many of the oral papers were about important preliminary research, yet to be revealed in the published literature. The volume includes two main groups of fishes, actinopterygians (almost exclusively about teleosts) and sarcopterygians as well as papers dealing with important assemblages of fossil fishes of certain Mesozoic localities. Most of the papers are solely dedicated to Mesozoic fossil fishes, but some studies include related fishes up to the present, as well as papers dealing with specific morphological aspects of actinopterygians, and homology problems. New discoveries are presented about fishes from Europe, North America, South America, Africa, and Australia. The new discoveries and interpretations along with critical evaluation of previous research collectively represent an exciting invitation and challenge to further research on Mesozoic Fishes.
