Fresh-Water Fishes of North Borneo

Fieldiana: Zoology Volume 45

by

Robert F Inger & Chin Phui Kong

Although North Borneo, now the Malaysian state of Sabah, comprises about one tenth of Borneo's landmass, when this research was carried out, it included one third of the primary frsh-water fishes of the island, many of which were unique to this area. This came about because of North Borneo's drainage system not being connected to the rest of the Malayo-Indonesian landmass at times of fluctuations in sea levels. The work was designed not only to be of help to the academic biologist, but to the amateur as well. It contains numerous maps, line drawings of the major species and some black and white plates. One of the purposes of the work was to identify fishes suitable for fish culture so there is also a chapter on Fresh-water Fish Culture in North Borneo. 268 pages a list of references, an index to local names of fishes and a general index.
