Phylogenetic relationships of eleotridid fishes (Perciformes: Gobioidei)
So Many Fishes, So Little Time: An Overview of Recent Ichthyological Discovery in Continental Waters
Thalasseleotrididae, new family of marine gobioid fishes from New Zealand and temperate Australia, with a revised definition of its sister taxon, the Gobiidae (Teleostei: Acanthomorpha)
A contribution to the ongoing clarification of the family Eleotrididae, which has served historically as a repository for genera not classified among the more derived gobioids, is represented.
Association of epaxial musculature with dorsal-fin pterygiophores in acanthomorph fishes, and its phylogenetic significance
Phylogenies without Synapomorphies—A Crisis in Fish Systematics: Time to Show Some Character
It is argued that the move away from providing character evidence with phylogenies has diminished fish systematics and systematics in general, and amounts to a crisis, and suggest four measures that need reintroduction to phylogenetic practice in order to bring systematics back to its fundamental principles.
Revision of the Indo-Pacific dottyback fish subfamily Pseudo
- A. Gill
The 100 nominal species in the pseudochromid subfamily Pseudochrominae are referred to 70 valid species, and an additional ten species are described as new.
Specimen collection: an essential tool.
Collecting biological specimens for scientific studies came under scrutiny when B. A. Minteer and colleagues suggested that this practice plays a significant role in species extinctions.
Taxonomy based on science is necessary for global conservation

Molecular phylogenetics of Chaetodon and the Chaetodontidae (Teleostei: Perciformes) with reference to morphology
Molecular data support the sister group relationship between Corallochaetodon and Citharoedus suggested by morphology, but major differences occur among the remaining more derived taxa.
