Ecological Studies in Tropical Fish Communities
The Impact of Conservation on the Status of the World’s Vertebrates
Though the threat of extinction is increasing, overall declines would have been worse in the absence of conservation, and current conservation efforts remain insufficient to offset the main drivers of biodiversity loss in these groups.
Systematics and morphology of the bonitos (Sarda) and their relatives (Scombridae, Sardini)
TheBonitos constitute the scombrid tribe Sardini, consisting of eight species placed in five genera, and are more closely related to the bonitos than to any other scombrids.
A multi-gene dataset reveals a tropical New World origin and Early Miocene diversification of croakers (Perciformes: Sciaenidae).
Divergent natural selection with gene flow along major environmental gradients in Amazonia: insights from genome scans, population genetics and phylogeography of the characin fish Triportheus albus
The results from this study challenge assumptions about the origin and distribution of adaptive and neutral genetic diversity in tropical ecosystems and have important implications for measures of biodiversity and evolutionary potential in one of the world’s most diverse and iconic ecosystems.
Population history of the Amazonian one-lined pencilfish based on intron DNA data
The results match the predictions of the palaeogeography hypothesis of speciation and outline the usefulness of an intron DNA marker to reconstruct population history of a central Amazonian fish.
European Red List of Marine Fishes
The European Red List publication summarises results for all described native European marine fishes.
Marine incursions, cryptic species and ecological diversification in Amazonia: the biogeographic history of the croaker genus Plagioscion (Sciaenidae)
It is proposed that marine incursions into western Venezuela between the late Oligocene and early Miocene were responsible for the adaptation to freshwaters in Plagioscion species and highlight the importance of divergent natural selection through time in the generation and maintenance of sciaenid diversity in Amazonia.
Project Piaba -- towards a sustainable ornamental fishery in the Amazon
Fishes and aquaticenvironments are often overlooked in conservation and sustainabledevelopment projects in Amazonia, yet the diversity of fishes(> 3 000 species) and the socio-economic value of…

A new framework for ecological speciation is proposed that integrates information from phylogenetics, phylogeography, population genomics, and simulations in evolutionary landscape genetics (ELG) to assist in distinguishing the relative contribution of natural selection from biogeographic history in the origin of biodiversity, even in complex ecosystems such as Amazonia.
