Phylogeography and historical demography of the anadromous fish Leucopsarion petersii in relation to geological history and oceanography around the Japanese Archipelago
Phylogeographical patterns of marine and diadromous organisms are often influenced by dynamic ocean histories. For example, the marine realm around the Japanese Archipelago is an interesting area forExpand

Potential latitudinal variation in egg size and number of a geographically widespread reef fish, revealed by common-environment experiments
Variation in maternal reproductive traits was examined in field and reared populations of a geographically widespread reef fish, Pomacentrus coelestis (Pomacentridae), drawn from three differentExpand

Early life history traits of the gold-eye rockfish, Sebastes thompsoni, in relation to successful utilization of drifting seaweed
Abstract The gold-eye rockfish Sebastes thompsoni lives in association with drifting seaweed during the early developmental period. Early life history traits of the gold-eye rockfish were studied byExpand

A RAD-based linkage map and comparative genomics in the gudgeons (genus Gnathopogon, Cyprinidae)
BackgroundThe construction of linkage maps is a first step in exploring the genetic basis for adaptive phenotypic divergence in closely related species by quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis.Expand

Genetic comparison of two color-morphs of Apogon properuptus from southern Japan
The anterior half of the mitochondrial 16S rRNA gene (ca. 650 bp) was compared for two color-morphs (dotted and lined types) of the orange-lined cardinalfish, previously identified as ApogonExpand

Sexual conflict over mating system: the case of a pair-territorial filefish without parental care
Abstract We studied the optimal mating system from the male's and female's point of view in the longnose filefish, Oxymonacanthus longirostris , which is predominantly monogamous but can also beExpand

The Role of Female Behavior in Maintaining Monogamy of a Coral‐Reef Filefish
The corallivorous filefish Oxymonacanthus longirostris is a predominantly monogamous species without parental care. Polygyny reduces female fitness because monogamous females benefit from maleExpand

Population genetic structure of the neon damselfish (Pomacentrus coelestis) in the northwestern Pacific Ocean
The population genetic structure of the neon damselfish (Pomacentrus coelestis) in the northwestern Pacific Ocean was revealed by the hypervariable control region of the mitochondrial gene (343 bp).Expand
