Molecular Evidence on the Evolutionary and Biogeographical Patterns of European Cyprinids
Abstract. The phylogenetic relationships of 106 European cyprinid taxa were determined based on the complete nucleotide sequence (1140 bp) of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene. The molecularExpand

Phylogenetic relationships and biogeographical patterns in Circum-Mediterranean subfamily Leuciscinae (Teleostei, Cyprinidae) inferred from both mitochondrial and nuclear data
BackgroundLeuciscinae is a subfamily belonging to the Cyprinidae fish family that is widely distributed in Circum-Mediterranean region. Many efforts have been carried out to deciphering theExpand

Evidence of a cenozoic Betic-Kabilian connection based on freshwater fish phylogeography (Luciobarbus, Cyprinidae).
The phylogenetic relationships among 26 species of the subgenus Luciobarbus were examined through comparison of the complete sequence of the mitochondrial genes ATPase 6 and 8 and cytochrome b. TheExpand

Evolutionary history of the genus Rhamdia (Teleostei: Pimelodidae) in Central America.
We constructed phylogenetic hypotheses for Mesoamerican Rhamdia, the only genus of primary freshwater fish represented by sympatric species across Central America. Phylogenetic relationships wereExpand

Evolutionary history of the fish genus Astyanax Baird & Girard (1854) (Actinopterygii, Characidae) in Mesoamerica reveals multiple morphological homoplasies
BackgroundMesoamerica is one of the world's most complex biogeographical regions, mostly due to its complex geological history. This complexity has led to interesting biogeographical processes thatExpand

The molecular systematics and biogeography of the European cobitids based on mitochondrial DNA sequences.
Phylogenetic inference regarding the biogeography and evolution of the family Cobitidae depends in large part on the correct interpretation of transitions between the morphological states ofExpand

Re-examination and phylogeny of the genus Chondrostoma based on mitochondrial and nuclear data and the definition of 5 new genera.
Previous molecular phylogenetic studies of the genus Chondrostoma (Cyprinidae: Leuciscinae) were unable to resolve the relationship among its major species groups. In this paper we present aExpand

Phylogenetic relationships of Iberian cyprinids: systematic and biogeographical implications
The phylogenetic relationships among all Iberian endemic cyprinids were inferred using the complete nucleotide sequence of the cytochrome b gene. The inferred molecular phylogeny includedExpand

Phylogenetic relationships of the algae scraping cyprinid genus Capoeta (Teleostei: Cyprinidae).
We reconstructed the matrilineal phylogeny of Asian algae-eating fishes of the genus Capoeta based on complete mitochondrial gene for cytochrome b sequences obtained from 20 species sampled from theExpand

Phylogenetic relationships within the fish family Goodeidae based on cytochrome b sequence data.
A phylogeny of the species in the family Goodeidae was constructed based on the complete mitochondrial cytochrome b gene (1140 bp). Molecular phylogeny was used to revise current systematic of thisExpand
