What We Don't Recognize Can Hurt Us: A Plea for Awareness About Cryptic Species
Abstract We conducted an extensive literature review on studies that have used DNA sequences to detect cryptic species of parasites during the last decade. Each literature citation that included theExpand

Using ecological-niche modeling as a conservation tool for freshwater species: live-bearing fishes in central Mexico.
Ecological-niche modeling is an important tool for conservation assessment of terrestrial species; however, its applicability has been poorly explored in the aquatic realm. Goodeines are aExpand

Parasite Inventories and DNA-based Taxonomy: Lessons from Helminths of Freshwater Fishes in a Megadiverse Country
Abstract Freshwater fish helminth parasites are undoubtedly the most well-known group among vertebrate parasites in Mexico; these parasites include 37 adult and 43 larval (metacercariae) species ofExpand

The Phylogenetic Position of Allocreadiidae (Trematoda: Digenea) From Partial Sequences of the 18S and 28S Ribosomal RNA Genes
Species of Allocreadiidae are an important component of the parasite fauna of freshwater vertebrates, particularly fishes, and yet their systematic relationships with other trematodes have not beenExpand

Evolutionary history of the endangered fish Zoogoneticus quitzeoensis (Bean, 1898) (Cyprinodontiformes: Goodeidae) using a sequential approach to phylogeography based on mitochondrial and nuclear DNA
BackgroundTectonic, volcanic and climatic events that produce changes in hydrographic systems are the main causes of diversification and speciation of freshwater fishes. Elucidate the evolutionaryExpand
