ONTOGENY AND SYSTEMATICS OF FISHES-AHLSTROM SYMPOSIUMFamilies Gonostomatidae, Sternoptychidae, and Associated Stomiiform Groups: Development and Relationships E. H. AHLSTROMW. Interrelationships of Fishes. Book · January to determine if the phenotypic trends seen in this study could be explained by evolutionary relationships among fish species (Felsenstein. Stomiiformes is an order of deep-sea ray-finned fishes of very diverse morphology. It includes, for example, dragonfishes, lightfishes (Gonostomatidae and Phosichthyidae), loosejaws, marine hatchetfishes and viperfishes. The order contains 4 families (5 according to some authors) with more than 50 genera and at least Actinopterygii. Furthermore, the relationships within the Stomiiformes are poorly understood, and much of the existing classification is suspected not to reflect natural groups. Previous attempts to understand the relationships of stomiiform fishes have been complicated by the extensive morphological homoplasy within the group.

The order Stomiiformes (Vertebrata: Actinopterygii) is composed of of deep open ocean fishes, including some of the most abundant vertebrates on earth.

In the large family of lanternfishes shallow-living and deep-living species have equivalent differences in the size and number of their ventral photophores. Many stomiiform fishes have a large postorbital photophore, behind or under each eye, very similar in position to .

THE INTERRELATIONSHIPS OF FISHES OF THE ORDER STOMIIFORMES BY Shannon Colleen DeVaney Submitted to the graduate degree program in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and the Graduate Faculty of the University of Kansas in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. _____. Mesopelagic fishes represent significant ecological links between mesozooplankton and the larger pelagic squids, fishes, and marine mammals. As such, these fishes also play a significant role as intermediate or paratenic hosts for parasites that require a crustacean intermediate host and mature in marine mammals or pelagic fishes.
