    The research of medieval reception of Aristotle's knowledge of zoology confirmed that on the way through the Arabic and Latin translation to mediaeval encyclopaedias Aristotle's treatises underwent both large and small alterations in both names and descriptions of animals. Sometimes medieval authors interpreted their models so incorrectly that endowed the original animal not only with a new name but also with new features of appearance and patterns of behaviour. While consulting the Latin translation of Aristotle's treatise Historia animalium and his description of the carp Thomas of Cantimpré did not comprehend that the animal was a fish and he put it under an altered name komor to the book on birds. Thomas' term then appears in a slightly different form comor in Czech medieval sources.
