Molecular phylogeny of the humbug damselfishes inferred from mtDNA sequences
The damselfish genus Dascyllus comprises nine species of both large- and small-bodied fishes distributed over the entire Indo-West Pacific. Most members of the genus have polygynous mating systemsExpand

Species boundaries, populations and colour morphs in the coral reef three–spot damselfish (Dascyllus trimaculatus) species complex
Coloration patterns of tropical reef fishes is commonly used for taxonomic purposes, yet few studies have focused on the relationship between species boundaries and coloration types. The three‐spotExpand

Phylogeographic patterns and cryptic speciation across oceanographic barriers in South African intertidal fishes
Biogeographic boundaries are the meeting zone of broadly distributed faunas, or the actual cause of a faunal break. In the latter case, closely related sister species should be found across such aExpand

Genetic evidence for two distinct clades in a French Polynesian population of the coral reef three-spot damselfish Dascyllus trimaculatus
Previous studies have shown that the three-spot damselfish species complex [Dascyllus albisella Gill, D. auripinnis Randall and Randall, D. strasburgi Klausewitz, D. trimaculatus (Ruppell)] is anExpand

Fishes of Clipperton Atoll, Eastern Pacific: Checklist, Endemism, and Analysis of Completeness of the Inventory
Abstract: An updated checklist of cartilaginous and bony fishes from reefs and nearby areas around Clipperton Atoll (eastern Pacific) is presented. The register was compiled from field surveysExpand

Atoll-scale patterns in coral reef community structure: Human signatures on Ulithi Atoll, Micronesia
The dynamic relationship between reefs and the people who utilize them at a subsistence level is poorly understood. This paper characterizes atoll-scale patterns in shallow coral reef habitat andExpand

Corallimorph and Montipora Reefs in Ulithi Atoll, Micronesia: documenting unusual reefs
Here we report the presence of two unusual reef types at Ulithi Atoll, Yap State, Federated States of Micronesia: 1. a corallimorph-dominated reef off the island of Mogmog is found within anExpand

The ecology of Altrichthys azurelineatus and A. curatus, two damselfishes that lack a pelagic larval phase
Out of more than 380 species of damselfish, only three lack a pelagic larval phase, Acanthochromis polyacanthus, that ranges from the Philippines to the Great Barrier Reef, and two species in theExpand

Clipperton Atoll as a model to study small marine populations: Endemism and the genomic consequences of small population size
Estimating population sizes and genetic diversity are key factors to understand and predict population dynamics. Marine species have been a difficult challenge in that respect, due to the difficultyExpand
