The North American freshwater fish fauna exhibits considerable species diversity and patterns of endemism. The fauna has enormous potential for use in investigations and tests of biogeographic and…

It appears that the current North American freshwater fish taxonomy at the species level significantly conceals diversity in some groups, although artificially creating diversity in others, according to a survey of named species.
Diversity, distribution, and conservation status of the native freshwater fishes of the Southern United States
The Southeastern Fishes Council Technical Advisory Committee reviewed the diversity, distribution, and status of all native freshwater and diadromous fishes across 51 major drainage units of the southern United States to determine the status of extinct, endangered, threatened, or vulnerable fishes.
Phylogeny and polyploidy: resolving the classification of cyprinine fishes (Teleostei: Cypriniformes).
Systematics of the subfamily Danioninae (Teleostei: Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae).
Mitogenomic Evolution and Interrelationships of the Cypriniformes (Actinopterygii: Ostariophysi): The First Evidence Toward Resolution of Higher-Level Relationships of the World’s Largest Freshwater…
The present study represents the first attempt toward resolution of the higher-level relationships of the world’s largest freshwater-fish clade based on whole mitochondrial genome sequences from 53 cypriniforms plus 6 outgroups, and it is advocated that RY-coding, which takes only transversions into account, effectively removes this likely “noise” from the data set and avoids the apparent lack of signal by retaining all available positions in the dataSet.
Comparison of evolutionary rates in the mitochondrial DNA cytochrome b gene and control region and their implications for phylogeny of the Cobitoidea (Teleostei: Cypriniformes).
BIOGEOGRAPHY OF OUACHITA HIGHLAND FISHES
- R. Mayden

- 31 May 1985
The Ouachita Mountain Province in southwestern Oklahoma and southeastern Arkansas is an uplifted and strongly faulted region drained largely by the Kiamichi, Little, Ouachita and Saline rivers.…
Evidence from mitochondrial genomics supports the lower Mesozoic of South Asia as the time and place of basal divergence of cypriniform fishes (Actinopterygii: Ostariophysi)
The most likely candidate for the initial geographical range of Order Cypriniformes to be the south-eastern area of Mesozoic Laurasia (present-day southern Asia, excluding the Indian subcontinent) is considered.
Intraspecific phylogeography of Percina evides (Percidae: Etheostomatinae): an additional test of the Central Highlands pre‐Pleistocene vicariance hypothesis
Pleistocene vicariance hypothesis is tested with a phylogeographic analysis of the percid species Percina evides, which is widely distributed in several disjunct areas of the Central Highlands, and recovery of very limited mitochondrial DNA polymorphism and lack of phyloGEographic structuring support a hypothesis of dispersal during or following the Pleistocene.
