Freshwater Fishes of Iran

Back to Contents

This section contains all the papers and books referred to in the text of the web site on Freshwater Fishes of Iran but also attempts to be a bibliography on these fishes and their environment.

A partial version of this bibliography was first posted on 10 September 1996 and maintained by Yazdan Keivany, then at the University of Alberta, Edmonton.

There has been a rapid increase in studies on fishes of Iran, starting in the 1990s. Prior to 1900, this bibliography lists less than 100 publications relevant to this work, many not strictly on Iranian fishes. On a decadal basis, it is only in the 1960s that publications exceed 100 and by the 1990s are an order of magnitude larger. There were 275 publications in 2009, for example.

The large number of articles listed here, the length of many, their limited availability, and costs involved make it impossible to send xeroxes except in restricted cases. Please use your interlibrary loan service.

The website http://www.sid.ir (Scientific Information Database or SID, Tehran) appears in Farsi and English and lists publications in Iranian journals, with abstracts in English and Farsi. One journal given is listed as  "Virtual" sometimes without date or pagination and is presumably some form of preliminary listing.

Note that some articles have only been seen as an English abstract and it is not always clear whether the main article is in English or Farsi. Where known, the language is given when the article is not in a European language.

Students of Iranian fishes should also consult the Freshwater Fishes of Iraq website for its Bibliography as this includes additional and complementary studies on species shared with Iran.

There is a moderately extensive grey literature on Iran, mostly manuscript reports of the Department of the Environment, Tehran. Some of these are in English and were written by Peace Corps workers in the 1960s and 1970s. I have cited all those I came across but the listings are by no means exhaustive. Additionally, magazines and newspapers in Iran carry articles on fishes and numerous conference presentations appear as titles, abstracts and even lengthy articles. Regretfully, a complete survey of these was not possible although all those found are included.

The internet now carries English translations of Iranian newspapers and press releases. The URL (Universal Resource Locator) for these and for websites having information on Iran are cited directly in the text and not in this bibliography. Note that links often change or are no longer functional and these textual references serve only to document a source. Generally the date when they were downloaded is given. They may still be accessible but are not hot linked in the text. Some papers cited in this Bibliography have only been seen in their online version and pagination of the original, printed version is unknown. Others are known only from abstracts as costs prevent obtaining all papers when these are marginal to the main purpose of this website - describing the fishes and their general biology. Wherever possible the language of the article is indicated by the title (for European languages including Turkish) or by adding the language at the end. In some cases, particularly for articles published in Iran and seen only in English abstract, the language could be Farsi or English as journals may have articles in both languages.

Transliteration of personal names into English from other languages, notably Farsi, often gives variant spellings. Iranians may spell their name differently in different papers (you know who you are). When I am aware that the same person is meant, the original journal spelling is given followed by (sic) to indicate that the author may appear under another spelling. The same (sic) is also used to denote misspellings in titles (if these are egregious). Note that family names in Farsi may appear as two words (joined, separated or hyphenated), and these are variously used in papers (and here). An author with a double-barrelled name may then appear in two places in this bibliography, depending on whether only the last or both surnames are used. Personal names may be abbreviated to a single letter when appearing in English but sometimes appears as two letters to accord with the Persian alphabet (e.g. there are single letters s and sh).

The "Iranian Journal of Fisheries Sciences" (from 7(2) 1998 onwards) also appeared earlier as the "Iranian Fisheries Scientific Journal" (3(2) 1994 to 7(1) 1998), and earlier still as "Iranian Fisheries Journal", "Iranian Fisheries Scientific Bulletin" and "Iranian Fisheries Bulletin", is published in Farsi with English abstracts. It now appears as the "Iranian Scientific Fisheries Journal" in Iranian abstracting journals and websites. The "Iranian Journal of Fisheries Sciences" (starting in January 1999 with volume 1(1)) is published in English with Farsi abstracts. The Iranian Fisheries Research Organization (formerly Iranian Fisheries Research and Training Organization) publishes these journals and has a website with lists of publications.

Note that articles published in the "Journal of Ichthyology" are translations from the original Russian journal "Voprosy Ikhtiologii" although pagination (and sometimes issue number) are not the same. Only "Journal of Ichthyology" pagination is cited here but readers may wish to avail themselves of the Russian versions of these articles (however some earlier issues of "Voprosy Ikhtiologii" are only available in Russian). Prior to 1970 the English translation was called "Problems of Ichthyology". Year of publication as marked on the cover of each issue was the one cited here although internal evidence indicates translated issues were often published in the following year, a delay presumably because of translation time required. The date thus used is the Russian date of publication which is the relevant one for the few taxon descriptions appearing in this journal.

The Journal of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Tehran contains many articles on aquaculture in Iran and other articles on Iranian fishes generally. It sometimes appears in abstracting services, and in this bibliography, as Journal of Veterinary Research.

Some articles may be identified by journal name and a DOI but not pagination. DOI is the Digital Object Identifier and is found, in these cases, on articles that appear on-line but are not yet in print. Eventually volume, issue and pages replace the DOI herein. Occasionally, some articles seem to languish as a DOI but for most the journal pagination follows within a few months.
