An extant cichlid fish radiation emerged in an extinct Pleistocene lake
The haplochromine cichlid fish of the East African Great Lakes represent some of the fastest and most species-rich adaptive radiations known, but rivers in most of Africa accommodate only a fewExpand

Age and spread of the haplochromine cichlid fishes in Africa.
The Haplochromini are by far the most species-rich cichlid fish tribe that originated along with the so-called primary radiation of the Lake Tanganyika cichlid species flock, i.e. at the same timeExpand

Evolutionary history of the Lake Tanganyika cichlid tribe Lamprologini (Teleostei: Perciformes) derived from mitochondrial and nuclear DNA data
Lake Tanganyika comprises a cichlid species flock with substrate-breeding and mouthbrooding lineages. While sexual selection via mate choice on male mating color is thought to boost speciation ratesExpand

Reticulate phylogeny of gastropod-shell-breeding cichlids from Lake Tanganyika – the result of repeated introgressive hybridization
BackgroundThe tribe Lamprologini is the major substrate breeding lineage of Lake Tanganyika's cichlid species flock. Among several different life history strategies found in lamprologines, theExpand

Enhanced phylogeographic information about Austrian brown trout populations derived from complete mitochondrial control region sequences
Complete DNA sequences of the control region revealed a more fine-scale genetic structuring within and among Austrian brown trout Salmo trutta populations providing the opportunity for gene frequencyExpand

Abundance, distribution, and territory areas of rock-dwelling Lake Tanganyika cichlid fish species
Lake Tanganyika, the second-oldest and second-deepest lake in the world, harbors an impressive cichlid fish fauna counting about 250 endemic species that are characterized by a great level ofExpand

Phylogenetic relationships of the lamprologine cichlid genus Lepidiolamprologus (Teleostei: Perciformes) based on mitochondrial and nuclear sequences, suggesting introgressive hybridization.
Using sequences of the mitochondrial NADH dehydrogenase subunit 2 gene (ND2, 1047bp) and a segment of the non-coding mitochondrial control region, as well as nuclear sequences including two intronsExpand

Ancient Divergence in Bathypelagic Lake Tanganyika Deepwater Cichlids: Mitochondrial Phylogeny of the Tribe Bathybatini
The cichlid species flock of Lake Tanganyika represents a polyphyletic assemblage of eight ancestral lineages, which colonized the emerging lake independently. Our study is focused on one of theseExpand

Evolutionary Relationships of the Limnochromini, a Tribe of Benthic Deepwater Cichlid Fish Endemic to Lake Tanganyika, East Africa
Lake Tanganyika harbors an enormous diversity of cichlid fish that stem from eight distinct ancestral lineages, which colonized the lake after its formation 9 to 12 million years ago. Six of twelveExpand

Migration Rates and Genetic Structure of two Hungarian Ethnic Groups in Transylvania, Romania
Transylvania's ethnic mosaic is composed of Romanians, German Saxons and Hungarians. The ethnic groups of the Hungarian minority that settled in Romania show differences in dialects, customs andExpand
