Disentangling Incomplete Lineage Sorting and Introgression to Refine Species‐Tree Estimates for Lake Tanganyika Cichlid Fishes
Abstract Adaptive radiation is thought to be responsible for the evolution of a great portion of the past and present diversity of life. Instances of adaptive radiation, characterized by the rapidExpand

The evolution of cichlid fish egg-spots is linked with a cis-regulatory change
The origin of novel phenotypic characters is a key component in organismal diversification; yet, the mechanisms underlying the emergence of such evolutionary novelties are largely unknown. Here weExpand

Two different epigenetic information channels in wild three-spined sticklebacks are involved in salinity adaptation
Detection of both inducible and stable DNA methylation indicates two different epigenetic modes of salinity adaptation. Epigenetic inheritance has been proposed to contribute to adaptation andExpand

A novel primer set for multilocus phylogenetic inference in East African cichlid fishes
The cichlid fishes in the East African Great Lakes are a prime model system for the study of adaptive radiation. Therefore, the availability of an elaborate phylogenetic framework is an importantExpand

DNA methylation facilitates local adaptation and adaptive transgenerational plasticity
Abstract Epigenetic inheritance has been suggested to contribute to adaptation via two distinct pathways. Either, stable epigenetic marks emerge as epimutations and are targets of natural selectionExpand

Habitat use and its implications to functional morphology: niche partitioning and the evolution of locomotory morphology in Lake Tanganyikan cichlids (Perciformes: Cichlidae)
Animal locomotory morphology, i.e. morphological features involved in locomotion, is under the influence of a diverse set of ecological and behavioral factors. In teleost fish, habitat choice andExpand

Back to Tanganyika: a case of recent trans-species-flock dispersal in East African haplochromine cichlid fishes
The species flocks of cichlid fishes in the East African Great Lakes are the largest vertebrate adaptive radiations in the world and illustrious textbook examples of convergent evolution betweenExpand

Transgenerational plasticity and selection shape the adaptive potential of sticklebacks to salinity change
In marine climate change research, salinity shifts have been widely overlooked. While widespread desalination effects are expected in higher latitudes, salinity is predicted to increase closer to theExpand

An exploration of the links between parasites, trophic ecology, morphology, and immunogenetics in the Lake Tanganyika cichlid radiation
Differences in habitat and diet between species are often associated with morphological differences. Habitat and trophic adaptation have therefore been proposed as important drivers of speciation andExpand
