Grundeln (Gobioiden) - Barschartige Fische aus der Unterordnung der Gobioidei (Grundelänlichen) mit 2000 Arten und 500 nominellen Gattungen. Wegen ihrer vielfältigen Anpassungserscheinungen eine bemerkenswerte Gruppierung. Grundeln bewohnen in der Mehrzahl die Küstenzonen und flachen Meeresgebiete. Viele Arten sind dem Salzgehalt des Wassers gegenüber tolerant und das macht es möglich daß sie die Flußmündungen und brackwasserhaltigen Lagunen bewohnen können.

Sound production in Gobies - Università degli Studi di Pavia. In teleosteans more than 50 families include sound producing species. In the family Gobiidae several species have been studied in regard to their sound producing abilities. To date, five species of the Italian gobiid fauna are known to produce sounds: Padogobius martensii, Gobius nigricans  and Knipowitschia punctatissima are three endemic freshwater species; Zosterisessor ophiocephalus  and Gobius jozo (=niger) are predominantly marine species. Research on these species is undertaken in collaboration with the University of Parma (Dept. of Biology and General Physiology) and the University of Venice (Dept. of Environmental Sciences).
