Microsatellite loci for paternity analysis in the fathead minnow, Pimephales promelas (Teleostei: Cyprinidae)
Many recent studies have employed molecular markers to uncover important aspects of mating systems in teleost fishes. The fathead minnow ( Pimephales promelas ) is a nestbuilding North American… Expand
Impact of nest substrate limitations on patterns of illegitimacy in the fathead minnow, Pimephales promelas (Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae).
The fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) is a nest-building North American cyprinid that spawns multiply and exhibits exclusive male parental care. Here, we examined the effects of nest substrate… Expand
Low variation but strong population structure in mitochondrial control region of the plains topminnow, Fundulus sciadicus.
The plains topminnow Fundulus sciadicus is a freshwater killifish endemic to the Great Plains of North America. Rising concerns for future viability of this species have prompted recent changes in… Expand

Genetic effects of habitat fragmentation on blue sucker populations in the upper Missouri River (Cycleptus elongatus Lesueur, 1918)
The blue sucker, Cycleptus elongatus, is a large catostomid fish that occurs in main stem rivers throughout the Mississippi basin of North America. Although not federally listed as threatened or… Expand
Avoiding paralogy: diploid loci for allotetraploid blue sucker fish (Cycleptus elongatus, Catostomidae)
The blue sucker (Cycleptus elongatus) is a widespread North American catostomid fish that appears to be declining throughout much of its range. Here, we describe the isolation and characterization of… Expand
Low genetic diversity in nurseryfish, 'Kurtus gulliveri' (Perciformes: Kurtidae), and an appraisal of its breeding system using microsatellite loci
The Nurseryfish, Kurtus gulliveri, is a freshwater fish distributed in northern Australia and southern New Guinea that exhibits forehead brooding, a unique form of male parental care. Microsatellite… Expand
Microsatellite loci for the plains topminnow (Fundulus sciadicus, Fundulidae)
The plains topminnow (Fundulus sciadicus) is a killifish endemic to the Great Plains region. Recent field surveys indicate that populations may be declining in northerly portions of its range and… Expand
On the occurrence of mirror carp, an aquaculture breed of Cyprinus carpio Linnaeus, 1758, in the Songhua River, the largest tributary of the Amur River
Conservation genetics of the plains topminnow, fundulus sciadicus
The plains topminnow (Fundulus sciadicus) is a freshwater killifish endemic to the Great Plains of North America (Fig. 1). Rising concerns for future viability of this species have prompted recent… Expand
