AN EMPIRICAL SYNTHETIC PATTERN STUDY OF GARS (LEPISOSTEIFORMES) AND CLOSELY RELATED SPECIES, BASED MOSTLY ON SKELETAL ANATOMY. THE RESURRECTION OF HOLOSTEI
TLDR
The comparative osteology, phylogenetic relationships, and historical biogeography of all known fossil and living gars (Ginglymodi: Lepisosteiformes) are investigated in detail and Holostei appears to be a monophyletic group based on morphological data. Expand
A comprehensive phylogenetic study of amiid fishes (Amiidae) based on comparative skeletal anatomy : an empirical search for interconnected patterns of natural history
TLDR
This work presents the first well-supported comprehensive phylogeny for fossil and living amiid fishes, which synthesizes clearly documented phylogenetic data on amiids and other halecomorph fishes with other historical phenomena such as ontogeny, historical biogeography, stratigraphic paleontology, and paleoecology.

FRESHWATER STINGRAYS OF THE GREEN RIVER FORMATION OF WYOMING (EARLY EOCENE), WITH THE DESCRIPTION OF A NEW GENUS AND SPECIES AND AN ANALYSIS OF ITS PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS (CHONDRICHTHYES:
Abstract Freshwater stingrays from the Fossil Butte Member of the late early Eocene Green River Formation of Wyoming are reviewed, and a new genus and species of fossil stingray is described.Expand
An overview of Acipenseriformes
TLDR
Five features fundamental to the biology of acipenseriforms that benefit from the availability of the new phylogenetic hypothesis are discussed, and a cladogram summarizing osteological characters for those four groups is provided. Expand
Osteology and Phylogenetic Relationships of Fossil and Recent Paddlefishes (Polyodontidae) with Comments on the Interrelationships of Acipenseriformes
ABSTRACT The comparative osteology and phylogenetic relationships of fossil and living paddlefishes (Polyodontidae) are investigated in detail for the first time. This peculiar, poorly known group isExpand
Redescription of Hypsidoris farsonensis (Teleostei: Siluriformes), with a reassessment of its phylogenetic relationships
TLDR
A redescribed Hypsidoris farsonensis from the Eocene Green River Formation of Wyoming is interpreted not to belong in Ictaluridae as originally proposed, and to be the sister group to all known catfish families other than Diplomystidae. Expand
An overview of Acipenseriformes
Acipenseriformes occupy a special place in the history of ideas concerning fish evolution, but in many respects, phylogenetic studies of the group remain in their infancy. Even such basic questionsExpand
Skeletal Anatomy of the Shortnose Sturgeon, Acipenser brevirostrum Lesueur, 1818, and the Systematics of Sturgeons (Acipenseriformes, Acipenseridae)
TLDR
The skeletal anatomy of the shortnose sturgeon, Acipenser brevirostrum, is described and illustrated and the phylogenetic relationships of fossil and living acipenserids are studied, recovering †Chondrosteus as most basal amongAcipenseriformes rather than †Peipiaosteus. Expand
Chimaeroid fish remains from Seymour Island, Antarctic Peninsula
Ischyodus dolloiLeriche 1902, the youngest record of the species, and Chimaera seymourensis Sp. nov. are described from the La Meseta Formation, Late Eocene of Seymour Island, Antarctic Peninsula.Expand
