    Abstract

    An overview of the long evolutionary history of fishes and diversity of Australian fossil fish faunas. Conodont relationships and use in dating are discussed, together with features of newly described osteichthyan braincase. Biogeography and biocorrelation of microvertebrate remains are considered. Development of Mesozoic teleosts are briefly outlined and longevity of select groups is demonstrated.
