Diversity, distribution, and conservation status of the native freshwater fishes of the Southern United States
TLDR
The Southeastern Fishes Council Technical Advisory Committee reviewed the diversity, distribution, and status of all native freshwater and diadromous fishes across 51 major drainage units of the southern United States to determine the status of extinct, endangered, threatened, or vulnerable fishes.
INTRASPECIFIC PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF NORTH AMERICAN HIGHLAND FISHES: A TEST OF THE PLEISTOCENE VICARIANCE HYPOTHESIS
TLDR
The distribution and mtDNA relationships among subspecies of Erimystax dissimilis are not consistent with Pleistocene vicariance, but relationships among Appalachian haplotypes are consistent with the late Pleistsocene integration of the modern Ohio River system.
Taxonomy of the catfish genus Pseudoplatystoma Bleeker (Siluriformes: Pimelodidae) with recognition of eight species
TLDR
The genus Pseudoplatystoma Bleeker consists of three species long recognized as P. fasciatum, P. tigrinum, and P. reticulatum, and five species recently recognized or described here, which form a monophyletic group with two clades supported by anatomical features.
Status of Freshwater Fishes of the United States: Overview of an Imperiled Fauna
Abstract Conservation biologists have begun a concerted effort to educate the public, resource administrators, and politicians about the decline of temperate ecosystems, including their fishes. The
Phylogenetic relationships of thorny catfishes (Siluriformes: Doradidae) inferred from molecular and morphological data
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of complete sequences of mitochondrial 12S and 16S rRNA genes and partial sequences of the nuclear elongation factor-1 alpha (EF1α) gene yields strong support for the monophyly of Doradidae and Astrodoradinae (as well as other relationships), but otherwise shows significant conflict with morphological results.

TLDR
Age at maturity was later than previous estimates, the minimum age of first maturation being 8 years for males and 9 years for females, and total egg count was slightly lower than previously reported.
