The Tree of Life and a New Classification of Bony Fishes
TLDR
A comprehensive molecular phylogeny for bony fishes that includes representatives of all major lineages and the order Perciformes, considered by many a polyphyletic taxonomic waste basket, is defined for the first time as a monophyletic group in the global phylogeny.
Phylogenetics: The Theory and Practice of Phylogenetic Systematics
TLDR
This paper presents a systematic literature review of taxation alternatives to the PHYLOGENETIC system and some of the methods used, as well as some new ideas, that arose during this review.
The Zoogeography of North American Freshwater Fishes
TLDR
Zoogeography of the Freshwater Fishes of the Southeastern United States' Savannah River to Lake Ponchartrain and the Evolution of the Rio Grande Basin as Inferred from Its Fish Fauna Origin.
Phylogenetic classification of bony fishes
TLDR
This version of the phylogenetic classification of bony fishes is substantially improved, providing resolution for more taxa than previous versions, based on more densely sampled phylogenetic trees.
The structure of biological science
TLDR
The structure of evolutionary theory and the roots of autonomy and provincialism are studied, and new problems of functionalism are identified.
An integrative approach to heterochrony: the distinction between interspecific and intraspecific phenomena
TLDR
The previous model for heterochrony is discussed and clarified, some of the terminology is rejected, and the model is expanded to include a new nomenclature for intraspecific heterochronic phenomena.
Ecological niche modeling as a predictive tool: silver and bighead carps in North America
TLDR
The Genetic Algorithm for Rule-set Prediction (GARP) was used to model the niches of these two carps in their native ranges using hydrologic and general environmental parameters in concert with native distributional data and significantly predicted known occurrence data from North American introductions.
