Biogeography and molecular phylogeny of the genus Schizothorax (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) in China inferred from cytochrome b sequences
TLDR
Molecular evidence tentatively highlights the importance of palaeoriver connections and the uplift of the Tibetan Plateau in understanding the evolution of the genus Schizothorax and indicated the substantial role of vicariant-based speciation in shaping the current distribution pattern of the species.

Molecular phylogeny of the specialized schizothoracine fishes (Teleostei: Cyprinidae), with their implications for the uplift of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau
Molecular phylogeny of three genera containing nine species and subspecies of the specialized schizothoracine fishes are investigated based on the complete nucleotide sequence of mitochondrialExpand
Molecular phylogeny and biogeography of the highly specialized grade schizothoracine fishes (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) inferred from cytochrome b sequences
We recovered the phylogenetic relationships among 23 species and subspecies of the highly specialized grade schizothoracine fishes distributing at 36 geographical sites in the Tibetan Plateau and itsExpand
Molecular phylogeny of the specialized schizothoracine fishes (Teleostei: Cyprinidae), with their implications for the uplift of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau
TLDR
Molecular clock data do not support the hypothesis that the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau uplifted to near present or even higher elevations during the Oligocene or Miocene, and neither in agreement with the view that the plateau uplifting reached only to an altitude of 2000 m during the late Pliocene (about 2.6 MaBP).

Species invasions threaten the antiquity of China's freshwater fish fauna
Aim Human-mediated species introductions and extirpations have resulted in the homogenization of biotas over time. However, there remains considerable uncertainty in our understanding ofExpand
Age and growth of Schizopygopsis younghusbandi younghusbandi in the Yarlung Zangbo River in Tibet, China
TLDR
π�2-test indicated that von Bertalanffy growth functions could well describe the growth of S. y. Expand
Phylogeographic studies of schizothoracine fishes on the central Qinghai-Tibet Plateau reveal the highest known glacial microrefugia
TLDR
Phylogeographic structure, together with species distribution modelling, supports the scenario of multiple glacial refugia on the QTP during the LGM and suggests that Siling Co (4540 m asl) is a cryptic glacial microrefugia for plateau fish, which would be the highest glacialMicroRefugia known.

The complete mitochondrial genome organization of Schizothorax Plagiostomus (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) from Northern Pakistan
TLDR
The phylogenetic tree suggests that S. plagiostomus may have closer affinities than other fish of the genus Schizothorax and this mitogenome sequence would be useful for phylogenetic analysis and conservation of this species in Pakistan. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of Rhynchocypris oxycephalus (Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae)
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of R. oxycephalus is sequenced and the gene content and order is in accord with the common vertebrate form. Expand
The mitochondrial genome of Schizothorax esocinus (Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae) from Northern Pakistan
TLDR
This is the very first study reported from a reservoir of large cold water bodies in Pakistan which have a great potential for conservation of cold water fish species and this mitogenome sequence would be useful to know the phylogenetic status of the fish. Expand
