The Tree of Life and a New Classification of Bony Fishes
The tree of life of fishes is in a state of flux because we still lack a comprehensive phylogeny that includes all major groups. The situation is most critical for a large clade of spiny-finnedExpand
Population structure and biogeography of migratory freshwater fishes (Prochilodus: Characiformes) in major South American rivers
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequences were used to infer the phylogenetic relationships of Prochilodus species in the Paraná, Amazonas, Orinoco, and Magdalena basins. Sequences of ATPase subunits 6 andExpand
GLOBAL SURVEY OF MITOCHONDRIAL DNA SEQUENCES IN THE THREESPINE STICKLEBACK: EVIDENCE FOR RECENT MIGRATIONS
Phylogenetic analyses of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequences were used to assess the matriarchal genetic structure of the threespine stickleback, Gasterosteus aculeatus. A 747 base‐pair (bp) fragmentExpand
A practical approach to phylogenomics: the phylogeny of ray-finned fish (Actinopterygii) as a case study
BackgroundMolecular systematics occupies one of the central stages in biology in the genomic era, ushered in by unprecedented progress in DNA technology. The inference of organismal phylogeny is nowExpand
Phylogenetic classification of bony fishes
BackgroundFish classifications, as those of most other taxonomic groups, are being transformed drastically as new molecular phylogenies provide support for natural groups that were unanticipated byExpand
Optimal data partitioning and a test case for ray-finned fishes (Actinopterygii) based on ten nuclear loci.
Data partitioning, the combined phylogenetic analysis of homogeneous blocks of data, is a common strategy used to accommodate heterogeneities in complex multilocus data sets. Variation inExpand
Comprehensive phylogeny of ray-finned fishes (Actinopterygii) based on transcriptomic and genomic data
Significance Ray-finned fishes form the largest and most diverse group of vertebrates. Establishing their phylogenetic relationships is a critical step to explaining their diversity. We compiled theExpand
Mitochondrial DNA Phylogeny of the Family Cichlidae: Monophyly and Fast Molecular Evolution of the Neotropical Assemblage
Abstract. A mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) phylogeny of cichlid fish is presented for the most taxonomically inclusive data set compiled to date (64 taxa). 16S rDNA data establish with confidenceExpand
Phylogenetic relationships within the speciose family Characidae (Teleostei: Ostariophysi: Characiformes) based on multilocus analysis and extensive ingroup sampling
BackgroundWith nearly 1,100 species, the fish family Characidae represents more than half of the species of Characiformes, and is a key component of Neotropical freshwater ecosystems. TheExpand
EVOLUTION OF PELVIC REDUCTION IN THREESPINE STICKLEBACK FISH: A TEST OF COMPETING HYPOTHESES
Reimchen hypothesized that pelvic reduction in threespine stickleback is favored by an absence of piscivorous fishes and the resulting increase in predation by insects, but Giles hypothesized thatExpand
