Estimating Improved Partitioning Schemes for Ultraconserved Elements
Abstract Ultraconserved (UCEs) are popular markers for phylogenomic studies. They are relatively simple to collect from distantly-related organisms, and contain sufficient information to inferExpand
Model-based total evidence phylogeny of Neotropical electric knifefishes (Teleostei, Gymnotiformes).
This study provides the most comprehensive Model-Based Total Evidence (MBTE) phylogenetic analyses of the clade Gymnotiformes to date, reappraising relationships using a dataset comprised of sixExpand
Molecular phylogeny of Aphyocharacinae (Characiformes, Characidae) with morphological diagnoses for the subfamily and recognized genera.
The subfamily Aphyocharacinae was recently redefined to comprise eight genera: Aphyocharax, Prionobrama, Paragoniates, Phenagoniates, Leptagoniates, Xenagoniates, Rachoviscus and Inpaichthys. ThisExpand
Coordinated Dispersal and Pre-Isthmian Assembly of the Central American Ichthyofauna
&NA; We document patterns of coordinated dispersal over evolutionary time frames in heroine cichlids and poeciliine live‐bearers, the two most species‐rich clades of freshwater fishes in theExpand
Association of student position in classroom and school performance
a UNESP – Sao Paulo State University, Institute of Biosciences. Distrito de Rubiao Jr., s/n, CxP 510, CEP 18618-970, Botucatu, Sao Paulo, Brazil. MSc. Student, Department of Morphology, Sao PauloExpand
Shift from slow- to fast-water habitats accelerates lineage and phenotype evolution in a clade of Neotropical suckermouth catfishes (Loricariidae: Hypoptopomatinae)
Identifying habitat characteristics that accelerate organismal evolution is essential to understanding both the origins of life on Earth and the ecosystem properties that are most critical toExpand
Biogeographical signature of river capture events in Amazonian lowlands
Aim To investigate the effects of river capture on the biogeographical history of South American freshwater fishes. Location Western Amazon and La Plata basins, and adjacent riverExpand
Transcontinental dispersal, ecological opportunity and origins of an adaptive radiation in the Neotropical catfish genus Hypostomus (Siluriformes: Loricariidae)
Ecological opportunity is often proposed as a driver of accelerated diversification, but evidence has been largely derived from either contemporary island radiations or the fossil record. Here, weExpand
Quality of propolis commercialized in the informal market
The purpose of this research was to evaluate the quality of propolis produced and commercialized informally in Sao Paulo State through physicochemical analyses of ethanolic extracts of propolisExpand
Diversification of Neotropical Freshwater Fishes
Neotropical freshwater fishes (NFFs) constitute the most diverse continental vertebrate fauna on Earth, with more than 6,200 named species compressed into an aquatic footprint <0.5% of the total re...
