International Standardization of Common Names for Iberian Endemic Freshwater Fishes
Iberian endemic freshwater ſshes do not have standardized common names in English, which is usually a cause of incon-veniences for authors when publishing for an international audience. With the aim to tackle this problem, an updated list ofIberian endemic freshwater ſsh species is presented with a reasoned proposition of a standard international designation alongwith Spanish and/or Portuguese common names adopted in the National Red Data Books.
