Ganoidei definitions

WordNet (r) 3.0 (2005)

n
1: a group of mostly extinct primitive bony fishes characterized by armor-like bony scales [syn: Ganoidei, order Ganoidei]

Webster's 1913 Dictionary

Ganoidei Ga*noi"de*i, n. pl. [NL. See Ganoid.] (Zo["o]l.) One of the subclasses of fishes. They have an arterial cone and bulb, spiral intestinal valve, and the optic nerves united by a chiasma. Many of the species are covered with bony plates, or with ganoid scales; others have cycloid scales. Note: They were numerous, and some of them of large size, in early geological periods; but they are represented by comparatively few living species, most of which inhabit fresh waters, as the bowfin, gar pike, bichir, Ceratodus, paddle fish, and sturgeon.
