Grunts (family Haemulidae) in the genus Anisotremus comprise 10 described species which occur predominantly on coral reefs and subtropical rocky reefs in the Neotropics of the Tropical Eastern Pacific the Caribbean and adjacent waters. In this study, the phylogenetic relationships for all described species were examined based on one mitochondrial gene(More)
Molecular technology can identify species noninvasively from faeces found in the field. We describe a fast and reliable genetic method that differentiates faeces of five potentially sympatric North American canids without using multiple primer sets or restriction enzyme digestion. Our primer set amplifies a short fragment (237–288 bp) of the mitochondrial(More)
According to Bateman's principle, female fecundity is limited relative to males, setting the expectation that males should be promiscuous, while females should be choosy and select fewer mates. However, several surfperches (Embiotocidae) exhibit multiple paternity within broods indicating that females mate with multiple males throughout the mating season.(More)
The angelfish genus Holacanthus includes seven species in the tropical Eastern Pacific and Atlantic. In this study we performed an analysis on all species, the closely related regal angelfish, and the Cortez angelfish, using four mitochondrial and one nuclear marker. Our results support a monophyletic Holacanthus. The Indo-Pacific regal angelfish,(More)
