Major patterns of higher teleostean phylogenies: a new perspective based on 100 complete mitochondrial DNA sequences.
Many unexpected, but highly supported relationships were found within the Percomorpha, being highly promising for the next investigative step towards resolution of this remarkably diversified group of teleosts. Expand
Phylogeny of the Order Gadiformes (Teleostei, Paracanthopterygii)
The evolution of dorsal supernumerary fin-ray characters, gadid biogeography, phylogenetic positions of extinct gadoid genera and possible heterochrony among gadiforms are discussed. Expand
Phylogenetic Diversity and Cosymbiosis in the Bioluminescent Symbioses of “Photobacterium mandapamensis”
The results, which are the first report of bacterial cosymbiosis in fish light organs and the first demonstration that P. leiognathi is not the exclusive light organ symbiont ofLeiognathid fishes, demonstrate that the host species ranges of P. mandapamensis and P.LeIognathi are substantially distinct.

Phylogenetic analysis of host–symbiont specificity and codivergence in bioluminescent symbioses
In several associations, bacterial species identities contradicted strict host family bacterial species specificity and the hypothesis of codivergence in bioluminescent symbioses was refuted. Expand
Round and pointed-head grenadier fishes (Actinopterygii: Gadiformes) represent a single sister group: evidence from the complete mitochondrial genome sequences.
Monophyly of the two species with disparate head morphologies was corroborated by two different lines of evidence, and the overall topology of the present tree differed from any of the previously proposed, morphology-based phylogenetic hypotheses. Expand
A new batfish,Coelophrys bradburyae (Lophiiformes: Ogcocephalidae) from Japan, with comments on the evolutionary relationships of the genus
The evolutionary relationships of the genus discussed based on cladistic analyses: the sister relationship with Halieutopsis was confirmed and possible paedomorphic states, including the globose body, proposed as having evolved secondarily from a flat-bodied ogcocephalid ancestor. Expand
Fabrication and photoactivities of spherical-shaped BiVO4 photocatalysts through solution combustion synthesis method
Abstract Spherical-shaped BiVO4 photocatalysts were prepared by the solution combustion synthesis method. The as-prepared photocatalysts were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), nitrogenExpand
New records of the abyssal grenadiersCoryphaenoides armatus andC. yaquinae from the western North Pacific
The material agrees well with the descriptions of Iwamoto and Stein (1974) and these are the first records of C. yaquinae (new Japanese name: Shinkaiyoroi-dara) from the western North Pacific around the Japan trench, which is the deepest record for a macrourid. Expand
