Phylogeny and polyploidy: resolving the classification of cyprinine fishes (Teleostei: Cypriniformes).
The hexaploid African Labeobarbus & allies and Western Asian Capoeta are likely derived from two independent hybridization events between their respective maternal tetraploid ancestors and Cyprinion.
A global experiment suggests climate warming will not accelerate litter decomposition in streams but might reduce carbon sequestration.
It is found that climate warming will likely hasten microbial litter decomposition and produce an equivalent decline in detritivore-mediated decomposition rates, which implies consequences for global biogeochemistry and a possible positive climate feedback.
Molecular phylogeny of the cyprinid tribe Labeonini (Teleostei: Cypriniformes).
The cyprinid tribe Labeonini is a large group of freshwater fishes containing around 40 genera and 400 species and is proposed to subdivide into four subtribes: Labeoina, Garraina, Osteochilina, and Semilabeoina.
Assemblage structure of stream fishes in the Western Ghats (India)
Assessment of the fish assemblage structure in 10 streams of the Western Ghat mountains of Peninsular India indicated that a high habitat diversity was associated with a high species diversity, and that habitat volume was a major determining factor for species diversity and abundance.
Population genomics of wild and laboratory zebrafish (Danio rerio)
The first large‐scale geographic analysis of genetic variation within and among wild zebrafish (Danio rerio) populations occurring in Nepal, India, and Bangladesh is conducted, and wild populations are genetically compared to several commonly used lab strains.
Natural history of zebrafish (Danio rerio) in India.
The Zebrafish, Danio rerio, is a well-known vertebrate model species widely used in research associated with biomedical areas and comparative and evolutionary biology, but little is known about the natural history, habitats, and native distribution.
Interbasin Water Transfer, Riverine Connectivity, and Spatial Controls on Fish Biodiversity
By identifying the fundamental relationship between the geometry of riverine networks and freshwater fish biodiversity, the results will aid in assessing impacts of IBWT projects and balancing ecosystem and societal demands for freshwater, even in cases where biodiversity data are limited.

A global-scale study of litter breakdown in streams to compare the roles of biotic, climatic and other environmental factors on breakdown rates revealed that breakdown of alder was driven by climate, with some influence of pH, whereas variation in breakdown of litter mixtures was explained mainly by litter quality and PD.
Phylogenetic Relationships of Species of Hypselobarbus (Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae): An Enigmatic Clade Endemic to Aquatic Systems of India
Genetic diversity in the genus is high; for the twospecies wherein more than one sample, and the two of each are suspected to represent undescribed taxa, these populationhibited greater genetic divergence than that observed between any two of the other currently recognized species, corroborating the hypothesis based on morphological evidence.
