Abstract
The structure, origin, and spread of the family Percidae are reviewed briefly, and its characteristics compared with those of other families of freshwater fishes. It is suggested that the percids, essentially riverine, have been restricted in their success in North America by the presence of the Centrachidae. Percids are defined as temperate mesothermal fish, and this physiological characteristic together with osmoregulatory capacity and swimming performance is shown to limit the ranges of the perches. The degree of development of the tapetum lucidum in Stizostedion ssp. and of the lateral line in all percids is related to differences in pattern of development, feeding behavior, and habitat. Reproductive, feeding and migratory behavior are also reviewed.
