Fish Orders Poster

A154 Fish
    Fish are cold-blooded animals that live in water. They have a streamlined body design and are covered with scales that reduce friction. Most are excellent swimmers. There are over 27,000 species, making them the most diverse vertebrates on Earth. This poster shows the three major clades. The jawless fish, the cartilaginous fish, and the bony fish. The latter dominates the poster, as all the orders / clades are explored.

Vertebrate Orders Set

   This is one of the four posters in our vertebrate orders set. They provides a comprehensive overview of the living vertebrates. Animal life is now undergoing the transition from the Linnaeus classification system to the new cladistic classification system. Birds have been reclassified under the new system. There have been many systems proposed for the other animals, but none has been widely accepted. This required that the posters present the animals in the context of their existing Linnaeus orders. Each of these posters present all of the orders within the group. There are so many marsupials and cartilaginous fish that they are presented as super orders.
   Each order is introduced by the common name or names (such as whales, dolphins and porpoises), followed by the biological name (Cetacea), the number of species, and a brief description. A great many representational animals are beautifully shown, all identified by both common and biological names.
  This is the first time that a comprehensive overview of this enormous and complex subject has ever been presented on posters. This set is invaluable for life science classes and anywhere else that the study of animals takes place.
