The Tree of Life and a New Classification of Bony Fishes
A comprehensive molecular phylogeny for bony fishes that includes representatives of all major lineages and the order Perciformes, considered by many a polyphyletic taxonomic waste basket, is defined for the first time as a monophyletic group in the global phylogeny.
Molecular phylogenetics and biogeography of galaxiid fishes (Osteichthyes: Galaxiidae): dispersal, vicariance, and the position of Lepidogalaxias salamandroides.
The species-rich genus Galaxias is shown to be polyphyletic and the generic taxonomy of the Galaxiinae is reassessed in the light of phylogenetic relationships, and the loss of this migratory phase may be a major cause of speciation.

The results indicate that effective bull shark management strategies will require local, regional, and international attention and cooperation, and are congruent with restricted maternal gene flow between populations caused by female site fidelity to nursery areas.
Phylogeny of sharks of the family Triakidae (Carcharhiniformes) and its implications for the evolution of carcharhiniform placental viviparity.
Pike and salmon as sister taxa: detailed intraclade resolution and divergence time estimation of Esociformes + Salmoniformes based on whole mitochondrial genome sequences.
Phylogenetic position of the enigmatic Lepidogalaxias salamandroides with comment on the orders of lower euteleostean fishes.
Are flatfishes (Pleuronectiformes) monophyletic?
Phylogenetic Relationships of Esocoid Fishes (Teleostei) Based on Partial Cytochrome b and 16S Mitochondrial DNA Sequences
The phylogenetic analyses revealed previously undiscovered affinities between species of umbrids and esocids that imply the paraphyly of the Umbridae as currently defined.
Mitochondrial genomic investigation of flatfish monophyly.
The Phylogenetic Affinities of the Mysterious Anguilliform Genera Coloconger and Thalassenchelys as Supported by mTDNA Sequences
Results from parsimony and Bayesian phylogenetic analyses of mitochondrial ribosomal RNA sequences from a taxonomic sample designed to test alternative placements of colocongrids and Thalassenchelys among anguilliforms found no support for the three major angUilliform lineages that have been proposed based on morphology.
