Dinopercidae, a new family for the Percoid marine fish genera Dinoperca Boulenger and Centrarchops Fowler (Pisces: Perciformes)
- Environmental Science, Biology
Two features appear to be uniquely derived characters justifying a separate family for Dinoperca and Centrarchops: Frontal bones bearing a high median crest that articulates posteriorly with the supraoccipital crest and is cleft dorsally by a narrow median sulcus extending ventrally to the roof of the brain cavity.

Genetic structure and different color morphotypes suggest the occurrence and bathymetric segregation of two incipient species of Sebastes off Argentina
- Biology, Environmental ScienceNaturwissenschaften
The results suggest that speciation-by-depth in the absence of physical barriers could be a widespread mechanism of speciation in Sebastes from both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
