Phylogeography of the northern hogsucker, Hypentelium nigricans (Teleostei: Cypriniformes): genetic evidence for the existence of the ancient Teays River
Aim  To assess the roles of dispersal and vicariance in shaping the present distribution and diversity within Hypentelium nigricans, the northern hogsucker (Teleostei: Cypriniformes). LocationExpand
Species limits and phylogeography of North American cricket frogs (Acris: Hylidae).
TLDR
Under a lineage-based species concept, Acris blanchardi is recognized as a distinct species of cricket frog and distinct phylogeographic groups within A. crepitans and A. gryllus are recovered that are congruent with other codistributed taxa. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships of Pleuronectiformes Based on Molecular Evidence
TLDR
The results support the conclusion that eye position is not a useful source of information for the classification of flatfishes and provides a new framework for future studies. Expand
Recovering cryptic diversity and ancient drainage patterns in eastern North America: historical biogeography of the Notropis rubellus species group (Teleostei: Cypriniformes).
TLDR
The observation of increased diversity in N. rubellus suggests there may be greater diversity within other taxa with a similar distribution, and relationships among these groups provided significant inferences on ichthyofaunal distributions in southeastern North America. Expand
Phylogeography of the bigeye chub Hybopsis amblops (Teleostei: Cypriniformes): early Pleistocene diversification and post‐glacial range expansion
TLDR
Estimates of the timing of divergence indicated that prior to the onset of glaciation, vicariant events separated populations east and west of the Mississippi River, and populations expanded northward into previously glaciated regions and southward into the Cumberland River drainage. Expand
A panmictic fiddler crab from the coast of Brazil? Impact of divergent ocean currents and larval dispersal potential on genetic and morphological variation in Uca maracoani
TLDR
This study evaluates the synergistic impact of divergent ocean currents and a high larval dispersal potential on the phylogeography of the fiddler crab, Ucamaracoani, distributed along the coast of Brazil. Expand
The phylogenetic relationships of the suborder Acanthuroidei (Teleostei: Perciformes) based on molecular and morphological evidence.
TLDR
A parametric bootstrap suggests the possibility that the paraphyly of Acanthuridae indicated by the molecular analyses is the result of long-branch attraction, and the disagreement between molecular and morphological data on the relationships of the basal acanthuroids and its putative sister taxon is unresolved. Expand
Genetic Comparison of Three Barbus (Cyprinidae) Morphotypes from the Genale River, Ethiopia
TLDR
An analysis of molecular variance revealed that the lipped and normal morphotypes are not genetically distinct and that the group of large-mouthed haplotypes is significantly differentiated from a combined group of normal and lipped haplotypes. Expand
Post-glacial expansion into the Paleozoic Plateau: evidence of an Ozarkian refugium for the Ozark minnow Notropis nubilus (Teleostei: Cypriniformes).
TLDR
Genetic variation was examined within the Ozark minnow Notropis nubilus using complete mtDNA cytochrome b gene sequences from 160 individuals representing 30 localities to test hypotheses on the origin of the distribution, and there is evidence of a genetic signature of northern expansion into the Paleozoic Plateau from a Southern Ozarkian refugium.
