Comment on “High-resolution global maps of 21st-century forest cover change”
Hansen et al. (Reports, 15 November 2013, p. 850) published a high-resolution global forest map with detailed information on local forest loss and gain. We show that their product does notExpand

Phylogeny of the Neotropical cichlid fish tribe Cichlasomatini (Teleostei: Cichlidae) based on morphological and molecular data, with the description of a new genus
Phylogenetic relationships among cichlasomatine cichlids were studied using an extensive taxon sampling and both morphological and molecular data sets. A new genus, Andinoacara n. gen. with sixExpand

The strange case of East African annual fishes: aridification correlates with diversification for a savannah aquatic group?
BackgroundAnnual Nothobranchius fishes are distributed in East and Southern Africa and inhabit ephemeral pools filled during the monsoon season. Nothobranchius show extreme life-history adaptations:Expand

Molecular phylogeny and biogeography of the Neotropical cichlid fish tribe Cichlasomatini (Teleostei: Cichlidae: Cichlasomatinae).
We have conducted the first comprehensive molecular phylogeny of the tribe Cichlasomatini including all valid genera as well as important species of questionable generic status. To recover theExpand

Ancestral duplications and highly dynamic opsin gene evolution in percomorph fishes
Significance Gene and whole-genome duplications are important evolutionary forces promoting organismal diversification. Teleost fishes, for example, possess many gene duplicates responsible forExpand

Bayesian Phylogenetic Estimation of Clade Ages Supports Trans‐Atlantic Dispersal of Cichlid Fishes
Abstract Divergence‐time estimation based on molecular phylogenies and the fossil record has provided insights into fundamental questions of evolutionary biology. In Bayesian node dating, phylogeniesExpand

Distinguishing between Incomplete Lineage Sorting and Genomic Introgressions: Complete Fixation of Allospecific Mitochondrial DNA in a Sexually Reproducing Fish (Cobitis; Teleostei), despite Clonal
Distinguishing between hybrid introgression and incomplete lineage sorting causing incongruence among gene trees in that they exhibit topological differences requires application of statisticalExpand

Development of coloration patterns in Neotropical cichlids (Perciformes: Cichlidae: Cichlasomatinae)
Interest in ratites has necessitated a review of available information on the unique endangered kiwi (Apteryx spp.). Five different species of kiwis, endemic to the three islands of New Zealand, areExpand

Evolution of visual sensory system in cichlid fishes from crater lake Barombi Mbo in Cameroon.
In deep-water animals, visual sensory system is often challenged by the dim-light environment. Here, we focus on the molecular mechanisms involved in rapid deep-water adaptations. We examine visualExpand

Vision using multiple distinct rod opsins in deep-sea fishes
Fish catch color with rods Vertebrates are typically thought to have a consistent system for processing light, in which multiple cone opsins permit color vision during the day, but a single rod opsinExpand
