Derivation of the freshwater fish fauna of Central America revisited: Myers's hypothesis in the twenty‐first century
Results of this study are consistent with Myer's hypothesis that poeciliids and cichlids dispersed to Northern or Nuclear Middle America early in the Cenozoic, long before the Plio‐Pleistocene rise of the Isthmus of Panama. Expand
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
Profundulus kreiseri, a new species of Profundulidae (Teleostei, Cyprinodontiformes) from northwestern Honduras
Profundulus kreiseri and Profundulus portillorum are the only two species ofprofundulus that are endemic to the region south of the Motagua River drainage in southern Guatemala and northwestern Honduras. Expand
Effects of Hurricane Katrina on the fish fauna of the Pascagoula River Drainage
Large tropical storms can have dramatic effects on coastal, estuarine and terrestrial ecosystems. However, it is not as well understood how these types of disturbances might impact freshwaterExpand
A new species of Profundulus (Cyprinodontiformes: Profundulidae) from the Honduran central highlands.
A new species ofProfundulus, Profundulus portillorum, from the Honduran central highlands is described, which has a more slender body, smaller eye, fewer anal rays, caudal rays and lateral-line scales than other species. Expand
First record of the invasive Asian fish tapeworm Bothriocephalus acheilognathi in Honduras, Central America
The first report of the invasive Asian fish tapeworm, Bothriocephalus acheilognathi Yamaguti, 1934, in Honduras is provided, and nearly complete sequence data from the ITS-1 5.8S and ITS-2 regions corroborate the determination based on morphological characteristics. Expand
Checklist of the inland fishes of El Salvador.
An updated checklist of the inland fishes of El Salvador is provided, based on the combination of an intensive literature review, electronic database searches, re-identification of museum specimens, and fieldwork, which provides distributional data at the Salvadoran hydrographical and political (by department) levels. Expand
Annotated Checklist of the Freshwater Fishes of Continental and Insular Honduras
The results show that there are at least 172 species of fishes inhabiting Honduran mainland and insular freshwater systems, 166 native and six exotic, which includes 36 new records for Honduras, and 12 range expansions. Expand
Genetic Evidence for Multiple Sources of the Non-Native Fish Cichlasoma urophthalmus (Günther; Mayan Cichlids) in Southern Florida
It is suggested that hybridization occurred in ornamental fish farms in Florida and may contribute their establishment in the novel habitat, and hybridization prior to release may contribute to other successful invasions. Expand
Variability in movement dynamics of topminnow (Fundulus notatus and F. olivaceus) populations
The data did not support the hypothesis that populations consist of distinct mobile and resident components, and individual fish went through periods of little or no movement followed by extensive movement (consistent with the home range shift model of fish movement). Expand
