The Tree of Life and a New Classification of Bony Fishes
The tree of life of fishes is in a state of flux because we still lack a comprehensive phylogeny that includes all major groups. The situation is most critical for a large clade of spiny-finnedExpand

Multi-locus phylogenetic analysis reveals the pattern and tempo of bony fish evolution
Over half of all vertebrates are “fishes”, which exhibit enormous diversity in morphology, physiology, behavior, reproductive biology, and ecology. Investigation of fundamental areas of vertebrateExpand

Genome-wide interrogation advances resolution of recalcitrant groups in the tree of life
Much progress has been achieved in disentangling evolutionary relationships among species in the tree of life, but some taxonomic groups remain difficult to resolve despite increasing availability ofExpand

Genomics overrules mitochondrial DNA, siding with morphology on a controversial case of species delimitation
Species delimitation is a major quest in biology and is essential for adequate management of the organismal diversity. A challenging example comprises the fish species of red snappers in the WesternExpand

Taxonomic revision of the New World genus Ariopsis Gill (Siluriformes: Ariidae), with description of two new species
The taxonomy of sea catfishes (Ariidae) has had a complex history. A recent checklist of catfish species recognized Ariidae as having by far the highest number of species with uncertain status amongExpand

On trends and patterns in macroevolution: Williston’s law and the branchiostegal series of extant and extinct osteichthyans
BackgroundThe branchiostegal series consists of an alignment of bony elements in the posterior portion of the skull of osteichthyan vertebrates. We trace the evolution of the number of elements in aExpand

Mitochondrial genomes of the South American electric knifefishes Eigenmannia humboldtii (Steindachner 1878), Eigenmannia limbata (Schreiner and Miranda Ribeiro 1903), Sternopygus aequilabiatus
Abstract We report four mitochondrial genomes of South American electric knifefishes, derived from target capture and Illumina sequencing (HiSeq 2500 PE100). Two trans-Andean species EigenmanniaExpand

Mitochondrial genomes of the headstanders Megaleporinus muyscorum (Steindachner 1900) and Megaleporinus obtusidens (Valenciennes 1837), (Characiformes, Anostomidae)
Abstract We report two mitochondrial genomes of headstanders, derived from target capture and Illumina sequencing (HiSeq 2500 PE100). One trans-Andean species Megaleporinus muyscorum (mitochondrialExpand
