Abstract A major challenge in evolutionary biology lies in explaining patterns of high species numbers found in biodiversity hot spots. Tropical coral reefs underlie most marine hot spots and reef-associated fish faunas represent some of the most diverse assemblages of vertebrates on the planet. Although the standing diversity of modern reef fish clades is usually attributed to their ecological association with corals, untangling temporal patterns of codiversification has traditionally proved… Expand
Do habitat shifts drive diversification in teleost fishes? An example from the pufferfishes (Tetraodontidae)
TLDR
Results suggest that ecological opportunity afforded by novel habitats may be limited for pufferfishes due to competition with other species, constraints relating to pufferfish life history and trophic ecology, and other factors. Expand
Non-reef environments impact the diversification of extant jacks, remoras and allies (Carangoidei, Percomorpha)
TLDR
Through the ecological radiation of carangoid fishes, it is demonstrated that non-reef environments may sustain and promote processes of diversification of different marine fish groups, at least those including a large proportion of piscivorous species. Expand
Diet and Diversification in the Evolution of Coral Reef Fishes
TLDR
It is suggested that ecological opportunity may play an important role in understanding the diversification of reef-fish lineages, because the evolution of species-rich clades was associated with a switch to low quality food in three of the four clades analyzed, which is consistent with a density-dependent model of diversification. Expand
The impact of shifts in marine biodiversity hotspots on patterns of range evolution: Evidence from the Holocentridae (squirrelfishes and soldierfishes)
TLDR
This work reconstructs the pattern of holocentrid range evolution using time‐calibrated phylogenies that include most living species and several fossil lineages, demonstrating the importance of including fossil species as terminal taxa in ancestral area reconstructions. Expand
Reefs as Cradles of Evolution and Sources of Biodiversity in the Phanerozoic
TLDR
Analysis of fossil evidence indicates that reefs were disproportionally important in the origination of new species, which might be a consequence of low-diversity habitats being more susceptible to invasions. Expand
The biogeography of tropical reef fishes: endemism and provinciality through time
TLDR
Examination of phylogenetic diversity and biogeographic data for coral reef fishes shows how assemblage structure and tropical provinciality has changed through time in the marine tropics. Expand
Phylogenetic perspectives on reef fish functional traits
TLDR
It is argued that the combination of a phylogenetic and a functional approach will improve the understanding of the mechanisms of species assembly in extraordinarily rich coral reef communities. Expand
Do Coral Reefs Promote Morphological Diversification? Exploration of Habitat Effects on Labrid Pharyngeal Jaw Evolution in the Era of Big Data.
TLDR
While coral reef association may provide the opportunity for specialization and morphological diversification, species must still be able to capitalize on the ecological opportunities to invade novel niche space, and that these novel invasions may prompt rapid rates of morphological evolution in the associated traits that allow them to capitalise on new resources. Expand
Evolutionary history of the butterflyfishes (f: Chaetodontidae) and the rise of coral feeding fishes
TLDR
It is revealed that a move onto coral reefs in the Miocene foreshadowed rapid cladogenesis within Chaetodon and the origins of corallivory, coinciding with a global reorganization of coral reefs and the expansion of fast‐growing corals. Expand
ELEVATED RATES OF MORPHOLOGICAL AND FUNCTIONAL DIVERSIFICATION IN REEF‐DWELLING HAEMULID FISHES
TLDR
It is demonstrated that rates of morphological evolution are faster in reef‐dwelling haemulids, suggesting that fine‐scale trophic niche partitioning and character displacement may be driving higher rates of Morphological evolution. Expand

Ancient origins of Indo-Pacific coral reef fish biodiversity: a case study of the leopard wrasses (Labridae: Macropharyngodon).
TLDR
Estimates of lineage ages based on fossil-calibrated reef fish divergences suggest that Macropharyngodon had an extensive evolutionary history starting in the early Miocene, and emphasise the importance of pre-Pleistocene events in generating Indo-Pacific coral reef fish biodiversity. Expand
EVOLUTIONARY HISTORY OF THE PARROTFISHES: BIOGEOGRAPHY, ECOMORPHOLOGY, AND COMPARATIVE DIVERSITY
TLDR
The phylogenetic results imply an East Tethyan origin of the Scaridae and the recurrent evolution of excavating and scraping feeding modes, and a two‐phase model of parrotfish evolution to explain patterns of comparative diversity. Expand

  • 2006
TLDR
Eocene fossils from southern England and northern France are examined and found evidence that precursors of up to nine of 20 currently recognized Acropora species groups existed 49–34 Myr, at palaeolatitudes far higher than current limits, to 51° N. Expand
Phylogeny of a rapidly evolving clade: the cichlid fishes of Lake Malawi, East Africa.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that adaptive divergence in trophic morphology played an important role during the early history of the lake, which suggests that other forces are responsible for the continued speciation of these fishes. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships and evolutionary history of the reef fish family Labridae.
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of labrids was conducted to investigate relationships among the six classical tribes of wrasses, the affinities of the wrasses to the parrotfishes (scarines), and the broad phylogenetic structure among labrid genera, confirming the monophyly of a family Labridae that includes the parrots and butterfishes and strong support for many previously identified taxonomic subgroups.

Evolutionary and Ecological Causes of the Latitudinal Diversity Gradient in Hylid Frogs: Treefrog Trees Unearth the Roots of High Tropical Diversity
TLDR
Overall, this study illustrates how two general principles (niche conservatism and the time‐for‐speciation effect) may help explain the latitudinal diversity gradient as well as many other diversity patterns across taxa and regions. Expand
Patterns of lineage diversification in the genus Naso (Acanthuridae).
TLDR
It is demonstrated that distinct foraging modes and specialized body shapes arose independently at different times in the evolutionary history of the reef fish genus Naso, indicating two sequences of events. Expand
Origins and escalation of herbivory in fishes: a functional perspective
TLDR
Analysis of functional morphospace suggests that the Cenozoic did indeed witness the appearance and proliferation of herbivory and grazing by marine fishes, and the arrival of these piscine herbivores had the potential to fundamentally alter the dynamics of benthic marine communities. Expand
Historical biogeography and molecular systematics of the Indo‐Pacific genus Dascyllus (Teleostei: Pomacentridae)
TLDR
A molecular clock permits us to posit a causative role for tectonic and oceanic changes regarding some Dascyllus speciation events and tested published hypotheses regarding determinants of the evolution of mating system and protogyny in the genus. Expand
The history and biogeography of fishes on coral reefs
TLDR
It is the combination of these two factors, origins and maintenance, that offers the clearest understanding of the nature of biogeographic patterns in reef organisms. Expand
