Fishes--Effect of water currents on

Subdivisions of the type --Effect of [concept or phenomenon] on are derivative. The terminology used in the subdivision should reflect the terminology used for the concept or phenomenon in its basic heading. That means that a heading for the concept or phenomenon needs to be present in LCSH in order for a subdivision to be proposed. A general see also reference to the free-floating subdivision should be added to the subject authority record for the basic heading. In addition, UF references of the type "Effect of [topic] on [...]" should not be made in the record for the pattern heading/free-floating subdivision combination. This proposal may be resubmitted along with a proposal to establish a heading for the phenomenon of water currents.
