Gene flow and population structure in the Mexican blind cavefish complex (Astyanax mexicanus)
BackgroundCave animals converge evolutionarily on a suite of troglomorphic traits, the best known of which are eyelessness and depigmentation. We studied 11 cave and 10 surface populations ofExpand

Testing species boundaries in Pardosa sierra (Araneae: Lycosidae) using female morphology and COI mtDNA
Abstract The wolf spider Pardosa sierra was described and illustrated by Banks in 1898 based on specimens from the Sierra de la Laguna, Baja California Sur. Later, two morphologically similarExpand

Genetic diversity and structure among subspecies of white-tailed deer in Mexico
Abstract The white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) occurs over a broad latitudinal range from South America to Canada. Thirty-eight subspecies are recognized, 14 of which occur in Mexico.Expand

Panmixia in a Critically Endangered Fish: The Totoaba (Totoaba macdonaldi) in the Gulf of California.
Conservation of the evolutionary legacy of endangered species is a key component for long-term persistence. Totoaba is a long-lived fish endemic to the Gulf of California and is considered criticallyExpand

Clarifying the taxonomic status of Merluccius spp. in the northeastern Pacific: a combined morphological and molecular approach
The taxonomic status of hake (Merluccius spp.) in the northeastern Pacific is unclear. Hakes in this region are Merluccius productus, M. angustimanus, M. hernandezi, and a morphotype known as dwarfExpand

Sexual dimorphism in a trophically polymorphic cichlid fish?
Sexual dimorphism in ecologically relevant traits is ubiquitous in animals. However, other types of intraspecific phenotypic divergence, such as trophic polymorphism, are less common. Because linkageExpand
