This chapter examines the small, local, river fish faunas in the Magdalena and Maracaibo basins in Northern South America (NSA). It analyzes species richness and distribution patterns of the freshwater fishes of the coast of NSA to delimit biogeographic units and relate them to historical and ecological variables. It evaluates the application of techniques of classification and ordination to the river fish faunas and describes the evolution of ichthyofaunas in the Magdalena and Maracaibo drainages.

Keywords:   river fish faunas, Magdalena Basins, Maracaibo Basins, North South America, freshwater fishes, ichthyofaunas
