Freshwater Fishes and Lampreys of Greece An Annotated Checklist


March 2015 | 130 pages




This publication provides a complete list of fish species inhabiting freshwaters in Greece as of December 2014. Our initiative aims to produce an official annotated list that will be regularly updated and reviewed by a committee of experts. An annotated species list is critically important for biodiversity conservation, especially since fish names and taxonomic validation have undergone remarkable changes during the last decade. This checklist contains standardized information on species’ taxonomy, distribution, habitat, and conservation status, while it also helps interpret nomenclature and taxonomic problems. Furthermore, it may serve as a scientific basis for developing a wider public interest in Greece’s freshwater fish fauna.
