This classification intends to preserve names and taxonomic composition of groups as much as possible; however, adjustments have been made to recognize well-supported molecular clades, many of which also have been obtained by recent studies. A total of 72 orders and 84 suborders of bony fishes are classified in this version (vs. 66 orders in version 1)
