A molecular phylogeny for aplocheiloid fishes (Atherinomorpha, Cyprinodontiformes): the role of vicariance and the origins of annualism.
Annual aplocheiloid killifish embryos possess a rare ability among vertebrates to enter stages of developmental arrest (diapause) when subjected to adverse environmental conditions. PreviousExpand

Phylogeny of the Neotropical killifish family Rivulidae (Cyprinodontiformes, Aplocheiloidei) inferred from mitochondrial DNA sequences.
Phylogenetic relationships of 70 taxa representing 68 species of the Neotropical killifish family Rivulidae were derived from analysis of 1516 nucleotides sampled from four different segments of theExpand

Phylogenetic relationships within the aplocheiloid fish genus Rivulus (Cyprinodontiformes, Rivulidae): implications for Caribbean and Central American biogeography.
We examined the phylogenetic relationships of 16 northern species of the aplocheiloid genus Rivulus inhabiting the Caribbean, Central America, and South America. A total of 714 base pairs per taxonExpand

Mitochondrial DNA phylogeny of West African aplocheiloid killifishes (Cyprinodontiformes, Aplocheilidae).
African killifishes (Cyprinodontiformes, Aplocheilidae) historically associated with the genus Aphyosemion occur in two geographically distinct regions. One assemblage from far West Africa has beenExpand

A MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF THE FELIDAE: IMMUNOLOGICAL DISTANCE
The phylogenetic distances between 34 of the 37 extant species of Felidae were estimated using albumin immunological distances (AID). Albumins from ten cat species were used to prepare antisera inExpand

Phylogenetic relationships of African killifishes in the genera Aphyosemion and Fundulopanchax inferred from mitochondrial DNA sequences.
We have analyzed the phylogenetic relationships of 52 species representing all defined species groups (J. J. Scheel, 1990, Atlas of Killifishes of the Old World, 448 pp.) of the African aplocheiloidExpand

Distribution and genetic basis of arginine kinase in wild type and flightless mutants of Drosophila melanogaster
Arginine kinase (AK) activity in Drosophila melanogaster has been localized to specific tissues, traced through developmental stages, and inferred to be the product of a single gene. AK is mostExpand

Molecular Systematics of the Drosophila virilis Species Group (Diptera: Drosophilidae)
Immunological distances were used to assess the relationships of species of the Drosophila virilis species group and to examine rates of evolution of the ecologically divergent virilis and montanaExpand

Phylogeography of the genus Epiplatys (Aplocheiloidea: Cyprinodontiformes).
There are six major genera of aplocheiloid killifishes endemic to West Africa. Five of these are largely restricted to the two major blocks of rainforest. Two are found within the Eastern rainforestExpand

NOTES ON DIPODOMYS ELATOR, A RARE KANGAROO RAT
Dipodomys elator has proved one of the most elusive of American mammals. The species seems confined to 6 counties in north-central Texas and southern Oklahoma. It occupies mesquite scrubland, whereExpand
