The major objective of this study is to determine the body shape variation among and between the two populations (Lake Lanao and Lake Buluan) of Glosssogobius giuris (Hamilton and Buchanan), using landmark-based geometric morphometrics. A total of 33 specimens from Lake Lanao (17 males, 16 females) and 31 from Lake Buluan (16 females, 15 males) were examined. Nineteen landmark points were digitized on the specimens from which relative warp scores were derived. Discriminant function analysis…

DESCRIBING BODY SHAPE OF GOBY, Glossogobius giuris (HAMILTON, 1822), FROM LAKE MAINIT, SURIGAO DEL NORTE USING LANDMARK-BASED GEOMETRIC MORPHOMETRICS
TLDR
It is aimed in this study to determine morphological variations in body shapes between sexes of G. giuris which could be important biological information useful in biodiversity studies and implementations of proper fishery management practices.
A study on sexual dimorphism of body shape in Caucasian dwarf goby , Knipowitschia caucasica ( Berg , 1916 ) using geometric morphometrics
Sexual dimorphism is a phenomenon in some fish species and its understanding is crucial for their taxonomic studies, biology and evolution. Regarding differences in body coloration patterns between
Body shape variation of Garra rufa (Heckel) (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) using geometric and morphometric techniques
TLDR
The Garra rufa (Heckel) populations captured in the Jarrahi River had significant differences in body shape with populations from Aghajari and Behbahan tributaries being most similar and the Rostam Abad population was different from the two other populations.
Geometric morphometric analysis of three spot gourami, Trichopodus trichopterus in Masao River, Butuan City, Mindanao, Philippines
Fluctuating asymmetry (FA) determines the health status of the bodies of water by way of measuring the variations in body shapes of the fish. Species in this environment are said to normally buffer
Morphology of Goby Species, Glossogobius celebius (Valenciennes 1837) and Glossogobius giuris (Hamilton 1822) in Lake Lanao Mindanao, Philippines
TLDR
The results showed that the entire morphometric characters measured in both sexes within the two species were not significantly different, male and female were not sexually dimorphic with apparent distinctions on their morphological attributes, particularly on their differences in sizes and lengths.
Body shape comparison of Cyprinion macrostomum (Heckel, 1843) and Cyprinion watsoni (Day, 1872) using geometric moprphometrics method
TLDR
Based on the geometric morphometrics differences, the two species of Cyprinion macrostomum and cyprinion watsoni can be well recognized and differentiated.
Body Shape Comparison of Kura Bleak ( Alburnus f ilipp i i ) in Aras and Ahar-Chai Rivers Using Geometric Morphometric Approach
The body shape of two populations of Kura bleak (Alburnus filippii Kessler, 1877) from Aras and Ahar-Chai rivers was compared by geometric morphometric method. A total of 63 specimens of Kura bleak
Describing Scale Shape Morphology of Glossogobius Giuris using Landmark-based Geometric Morphometrics
TLDR
Results of the study have shown that there is no sexual dimorphism in the fish based on scale shapes, however, variations of the scales do exist within sexes based on the results of the relative warp analysis.
Landmark-based geometric analysis of body shape variation and meristic plasticity among populations of Alburnoides idignensis from Tigris River Drainage, Persian Gulf Basin, Iran
To compare body shape variations and meristic plasticity among four populations of Alburnoides idignensis fish from Aab-barik, Aab-Sardeh, Darband and Sarab-e Kayvareh rivers in Tigris River
Geometric morphometric comparison of trout barb, Capoeta trutta (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) in the Tigris River basin
TLDR
The result showed that geometric morphometric methods could separate trout barb populations of the Tigris River Basin from each other to a great extent.

Habitat‐dependent reduction of sexual dimorphism in geometric body shape of Haida Gwaii threespine stickleback
TLDR
Sexual dimorphism in body shape in adult threespine stickleback from 39 lakes, eight streams, and five marine localities on the Haida Gwaii archipelago off the mid-coast of British Columbia as well as three lakes from southern British Columbia with benthic–limnetic species pairs is investigated.
Body shape variation within and among three species of darters (Perciformes: Percidae)
TLDR
Comparisons drawn from comparisons among moderately differentiated darter species in future studies of body size and shape are likely robust to intraspecific variation within species, and will permit more rigorous investigations into the ecomorphology of these benthic stream fishes.
Ontogeny and Allometry of Body Shape in the Blacktail Shiner, Cyprinella venusta
TLDR
Findings suggest that change in reproductive status may occur in concert with body shape change, and the ontogeny of body shape differs between males and females.
Use of Geometric Morphometrics to Differentiate Gila (Cyprinidae) within the Upper Colorado River Basin
Abstract Video images of 215 adult Gila robusta and 148 endangered Gila cypha were collected from May 1991–October 1992 at eight Colorado River basin localities (seven upper basins and one lower
Sexual Dimorphism in Plains Minnow, Hybognathus placitus
TLDR
Overall, males have relatively longer first dorsal fin rays, larger heads, and caudal peduncles, whereas females are deeper bodied and have comparatively longer trunks, from the pelvic fin insertion to the anal vent.
Genetic and morphological variation between two forms of lacustrine brook charr
Genetic data suggest that the littoral and pelagic forms of brook charr Salvelinus fontinalis in Lake Bondi are two populations with partial reproductive isolation and non-random mating. Genetic
Relationship between individual variation in morphological characters and swimming costs in brook charr (Salvelinus fontinalis) and yellow perch (Perca flavescens).
TLDR
In wild yellow perch, absolute and net swimming costs were higher in individuals having a stout body shape and a low aspect caudal fin, and standard metabolic rate was not related to body shape, in contrast to brook charr.
The role of predation in variation in body shape in guppies Poecilia reticulata: a comparison of field and common garden phenotypes.
TLDR
Complicated patterns of plasticity in body shape among populations and the sexes were found, and populations differed in the depth of the caudal peduncle, which is the muscular region just anterior to the tail fin rays and from which most swimming power is generated.
Relationship between shape and trophic ecology of selected species of Sparids of the Caprolace coastal lagoon (Central Tyrrhenian sea)
TLDR
For the first time the relationship between shape and trophic ecology in sparids was studied in a quantitative way giving an ecomorphological meaning to the shape differences.
Countergradient variation in body shape between two populations of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua)
TLDR
It is suggested that much of the genetic diversity in body shape of fishes may be cryptic, with stabilizing selection for the same optimal phenotype resulting in genetic divergence between populations subject to contrasting environmental influences.
