Atlantic reef fish biogeography and evolution
Aim To understand why and when areas of endemism (provinces) of the tropical Atlantic Ocean were formed, how they relate to each other, and what processes have contributed to faunal enrichment.

Species-specific patterns of hyperostosis in marine teleost fishes
The occurrence of swollen or hyperostotic bones in skeletal preparations, preserved museum material or whole fresh specimens of marine teleost fishes was identified in 92 species belonging to 22 families, suggesting that these fishes have a spatial juxtaposition of cellular and acellular bone tissues in adjacent and often serially homologous bone sites.

Relevance of cryptic fishes in biodiversity assessments: A case study at Buck Island Reef National Monument, St. Croix
The use of rotenone is controversial but important for obtaining reasonably complete inventories of reef fishes and Misconceptions about rotenones and the advan tages and limitations of alternative biodiversity assessment methods are discussed.

Supraneural and pterygiophore insertion patterns in carangid fishes, with description of a new Eocene carangid tribe, †Paratrachinotini, and a survey of anterior anal-fin pterygiophore insertion…
Evidence is presented that the first dorsal-fin pteryGIophore of the carangid Parastromateus niger variously comprises one simple pterygiophore or a fusion of two perygiophores, and there are suggestions that it is closely related to the Carangini.

Specimen collection: an essential tool.
Collecting biological specimens for scientific studies came under scrutiny when B. A. Minteer and colleagues suggested that this practice plays a significant role in species extinctions.
