The Lake Tanganyika cichlid species assemblage: recent advances in molecular phylogenetics
Lake Tanganyika is not the most species-rich of the Great East African Lakes, but comprises the greatest diversity of cichlid fishes in terms of morphology, ecology, and breeding styles. The lakeExpand

Assessing parent numbers from offspring genotypes: the importance of marker polymorphism.
Methods to infer parent numbers from offspring genotypes either determine the minimum number of parents required to explain alleles and multilocus genotypes detected in the offspring or use models toExpand

Rapid radiation, ancient incomplete lineage sorting and ancient hybridization in the endemic Lake Tanganyika cichlid tribe Tropheini.
The evolutionary history of the endemic Lake Tanganyika cichlid tribe Tropheini, the sister group of the species flocks of Lake Malawi and the Lake Victoria region, was reconstructed from 2009 bp DNAExpand

Age and spread of the haplochromine cichlid fishes in Africa.
The Haplochromini are by far the most species-rich cichlid fish tribe that originated along with the so-called primary radiation of the Lake Tanganyika cichlid species flock, i.e. at the same timeExpand

Speciation by host switch in brood parasitic indigobirds
A growing body of empirical and theoretical work supports the plausibility of sympatric speciation, but there remain few examples in which all the essential components of the process are wellExpand

Reticulate phylogeny of gastropod-shell-breeding cichlids from Lake Tanganyika – the result of repeated introgressive hybridization
BackgroundThe tribe Lamprologini is the major substrate breeding lineage of Lake Tanganyika's cichlid species flock. Among several different life history strategies found in lamprologines, theExpand

Testing DNA Barcode Performance in 1000 Species of European Lepidoptera: Large Geographic Distances Have Small Genetic Impacts
This study examines the performance of DNA barcodes (mt cytochrome c oxidase 1 gene) in the identification of 1004 species of Lepidoptera shared by two localities (Finland, Austria) that are 1600 kmExpand

Evolutionary history of Lake Tanganyika's scale-eating cichlid fishes.
Although Lake Tanganyika is not the most species-rich of the Great East African Lakes it comprises by far the greatest diversity of cichlid fishes in terms of morphology, ecology, and breedingExpand

Genetic evidence of intra-cultivar variability within Iberian olive cultivars
A collection of 130 olive samples, originating from diverse areas in Europe and corresponding to 67 different cultivars denominations, was genotyped at 14 microsatellite loci. In total, 135 allelesExpand
