Balancing hydropower and biodiversity in the Amazon, Congo, and Mekong
To achieve true sustainability, assessments of new projects must go beyond local impacts by accounting for synergies with existing dams, as well as land cover changes and likely climatic shifts, and call for more sophisticated and holistic hydropower planning.
Genome-wide interrogation advances resolution of recalcitrant groups in the tree of life
GGI is shown to be efficacy in resolving the controversial relationships within the largest freshwater fish radiation (Otophysi) based on newly generated DNA sequences for 1,051 loci from 225 species and supports the notion that ctenophores are the earliest-branching animal lineage, and adds insight into relationships within clades of yeasts, birds and mammals.
Taxonomic assessment of Leptodoras (Siluriformes: Doradidae) with descriptions of three new species
O genero Leptodoras Boulenger e um agrupamento monofiletico com pelo menos dez especies, distribuidas em rios grandes e predominantemente de terras baixas na metade norte da regiao cis-Andina da America do Sul, revelou tres espescies novas, descritas aqui.
Reproductive-behavioral Phylogenetics of Nocomis Species-groups
Three behavioral synapomorphies, the three-stage process of nest construction, pit fanning of spawning troughs and pits with the anal fin of nesting males, and circle swims support the monophyly of Nocomis.
Spawning in Ancistrus (Siluriformes: Loricariidae) with comments on the evolution of snout tentacles as a novel reproductive strategy: larval mimicry
It is hypothesize that female Ancistrus preferentially spawn with males guarding larvae, and that the male's snout tentacles stimulate this bias by mimicking the presence of larvae in an otherwise empty nest.

Catfish Genus Corymbophanes (Loricariidae: Hypostominae) with Description of One New Species: Corymbophanes kaiei
