AFRICAN CICHLID FISHES: Model Systems for Evolutionary Biology
TLDR
This view provides the critical information needed to formulate and test hypotheses that may permit discrimination among the diverse theories and models that have been advanced to explain the evolution of these fishes.
Hybrid origin of a cichlid population in Lake Malawi: implications for genetic variation and species diversity
TLDR
Genetic evidence of a natural hybrid cichlid population with a unique colour phenotype and elevated levels of genetic variation is provided and it is proposed that the role of hybridization in generating both genetic variability and species diversity of Lake Malawicichlids warrants further consideration.
Phylogeography of Lake Malawi cichlids of the genus Pseudotropheus: significance of allopatric colour variation
TLDR
Evidence that populations with red dorsal fins (RT) are not monophyletic is presented, implying that divergence in coloration may accompany speciation, and that allopatric populations with similar coloration cannot be assumed to be conspecific.
Allele frequencies for three STR loci RT24, RT09, and BM1225 in northern New England white-tailed deer.
TLDR
Muscle samples obtained from harvested animals in four distinct locations in each state were obtained during the 1998 deer hunting season, and Vermont samples were collected during the 1999 hunt.
significance of allopatric colour variation Pseudotropheusof Lake Malawi cichlids of the genus
TLDR
A phylogeographical examination of several allopatric populations of the Lake Malawi cichlid is undertaken, finding that the diversity of male coloration in these populations is remarkable.
Evolution of Lake Malawi Cichlid Fishes (Perciformes: Teleostei)
TLDR
This work reviews theoretical studies and empirical research on the cichlid faunas of Africa to provide a synthetic overview of current knowledge of the evolutionary processes at work in the Cichlidae.
