The familial phylogeny of the Tetraodontiformes (Acanthopterygii: Pisces) : as evidenced by their comparative myology
This analysis suggests that theTriacanthodidae and Triacanthidae are sister groups, and separated off first from the ancestral stock, as well as suggesting systematic changes in the hierarchical classification of tetraodontiforms. Expand
Phylogeny of the Genera and Families of Zeiform Fishes, with Comments on their Relationships with Tetraodontiforms and Caproids
This cladistic study, using 103 putatively informative characters of representatives of all of the genera of zeiforms, a primitive tetraodontiform, bothGenera of caproids, and numerous outgroups, strongly supports the monophyly of ze uniforms. Expand
A new genus and two new species of gobiid fishes (Perciformes) from the Chagos Archipelago, Central Indian Ocean
SynopsisA recent (1979) expedition to the Chagos Archipelago resulted in the collection of about 40 new taxa of fishes. A new genus,Trimmatom, and two new species,T. nanus andT. offucius, areExpand
Review of the Toadfish Genera (Teleostei: Batrachoididae)
A phylogenetic analysis using Paup with 50 informative characters and Draconetta, Ogilbia, Raniceps, and Synchiropus as outgroups resulted in the recognition of two major clades, New World and Old World. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of Indo-Pacific coral gobies of the genus Gobiodon (Teleostei: Gobiidae), based on morphological and molecular data
Inclusion of a set of morphological characters in a total evidence analysis provided additional support at some nodes resolved by the molecules-only analysis and also allowed a number of new resolutions in the total evidence tree. Expand
