Book Description Natural History Publications (Borneo), Kota Kinabalu, 2002. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Although North Borneo, now the Malaysian state of Sabah, comprises about one tenth of Borneo's land mass, when this research was carried out, it included one third of the primary freshwater 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 land mass 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 Freshwater Fish Culture in North Borneo. This is a revision of the original 1962 edition. 348 pages a list of references, an index to local names of fishes and a general index. Weight: 1.2 kg. Post free within Malaysia, but, due to its weight, this book is likely to incur additional postal charges when posted outside Malaysia. Seller Inventory # ML1572A

Book Description Kota Kinabalu: Natural History Publications, (2002, 2002. reprint).Octavo, dustwrapper,346 pp.,black and white photographs and text illustrations. North Borneo (now Sabah) is situated at the northern tip of Borneo Island (the third largest island in the world), it lies between 5° and 7° north of the Equator. It covers an area of 73,711 sq. km. (29,388 sq. miles) or about 10% of Borneo's total area of 286,699 sq. miles, yet it has nearly 40% of the fresh-water fish species now known from Borneo. One hundred and sixty eight species of fresh-water fishes are described in this book; among them 62 species are endemic to Borneo and 29 species are endemic to North Borneo. The most interesting groups of the endemic fishes are the clinging-fishes, which are found in the mountain streams, especially in the Kinabalu Park, which comprise Gastromyzon (8 species), Glaniopsis (4 species), Protomyzon (4 species) and Neogastromyzon (1 species). The Giant Goramy or Ikan Kului, Osphronemus laticlavius, is perhaps the most spectacular fresh-water fish endemic to Sabah, which has found its way to the lucrative global ornamental fish trade in recent years.
