Comprehensive phylogeny of ray-finned fishes (Actinopterygii) based on transcriptomic and genomic data
It is suggested that most lineages of living fishes were already established in the Mesozoic Period, more than 65 million years ago, and genome-scale data support the structure of the fish phylogeny. Expand
Phylogeny of lampridiform fishes
A survey of characters defining the Neoteleostei, Eurypterygii, Ctenosquamata, Acanthomorpha, Paracanthopterygii and Acanthopterygii convincingly places the Lampridiformes within the acanthomorphExpand
Using DNA Barcoding to Assess Caribbean Reef Fish Biodiversity: Expanding Taxonomic and Geographic Coverage
The barcode data are providing new insights into Caribbean shorefish diversity, allowing for more and more accurate DNA-based identifications of larvae, juveniles, and unknown specimens. Expand
DNA barcoding fishes.
This chapter is an overview of the techniques for DNA barcoding of fishes from field collection to DNA sequence analysis, and stringent guidelines for judging the quality of raw sequence data are laid out. Expand
Interrelationships of Aulopiformes
In 1973, Rosen erected the order Aulopiformes for all non-ctenosquamate eurypterygians, that is, the Iniomi of Gosline et al. (1966) minus the Myctophiformes (Myctophidae and Neoscopelidae). Rosen'sExpand
Osteology and relationships ofPseudotrichonotus altivelis (Teleostei: Aulopiformes: Pseudotrichonotidae)
This investigation supports an iniomous affinity for Pseudotrichonotus, specifically as a member of the Aulopiformes, and does not support a previously proposed relationship between Bathysaurus and synodontids. Expand
Genetic identification and color descriptions of early life-history stages of Belizean Phaeoptyx and Astrapogon (Teleostei: Apogonidae) with Comments on identification of adult Phaeoptyx
Comparison of preserved voucher specimens or digital color photographs of those specimens taken prior to preservation yielded sufficient information to separate all early life-history stages of Belizean Phaeoptyx and Astrapogon and provided additional information for field identification of adult Phaeiptyx.

GenSeq: An updated nomenclature and ranking for genetic sequences from type and non-type sources
An improved and expanded nomenclature for genetic sequences is introduced that corresponds with a ranking of the reliability of the taxonomic identification of the source specimens, an advancement of the “Genetypes” naming system. Expand
