Mitochondrial phylogeny, diversity, and ichthyogeography of gobies (Teleostei: Gobiidae) from the oldest and deepest Caspian sub-basin and tracing source and spread pattern of an introduced Rhinogobius species at the tricontinental crossroad
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Proterorhinus nasalis is the tubenose goby taxon in the saline waters of the southern Caspian Sea, and similarities in genetic background, and invasion history of Rhinogobius sp.
The Review of Ecological and Genetic Research of Ponto-Caspian Gobies (Pisces, Gobiidae) in Europe
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of monkey goby and round goby indicates separation between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea haplotypes, and the greatest genetic diversity is found among populations of the Blacksea and the lowest among European invaders.
The parasite community of gobiid fishes (Actinopterygii: Gobiidae) from the Lower Volga River region
TLDR
Parasitism of the Caspian bighead goby, which is the only predatory fish among the studied gobies, differed from the others according to the results of discriminant analysis, and the parasitic fauna of the tubenose goby more closely resembled those ofCaspian Sea gobiids, rather than the Black Sea monkey goby.
Evolution and phylogeography of the tubenose goby genus Proterorhinus (Gobiidae: Teleostei): evidence for new cryptic species
TLDR
Analysis of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences and morphological characters from exotic Great Lakes as well as introduced and native Eurasian populations of Proterorhinus marmoratus (Pallas) sensu lato shows marked genetic and Morphological divergence that indicates species-level separation between fresh water and marine/brackish lineages.
Gobies are deeply divided: phylogenetic evidence from nuclear DNA (Teleostei: Gobioidei: Gobiidae)
TLDR
This study is the first to explore this deep divide in gobies and their relationships at the family level using phylogenetic data from nuclear genes (RAG1, rhodopsin) and confirms the split within the Gobiidae.
Phylogenetic placement of the European sand gobies in Gobionellidae and characterization of gobionellid lineages (Gobiiformes: Gobioidei).

TLDR
Placement of Pomatoschistus and relatives in Gobionellidae rather than Gobiidae is significant in that it indicates that sand gobies are not closely related to other European gobies, and has implications for any comparative evolutionary or biogeographic studies.
Cryptic species of Ponto-Caspian bighead goby of the genus Ponticola (Gobiidae)
TLDR
The validity of the species Ponticola iljini is re-established; its distribution is limited to the coast of the Mangyshlak Peninsula and the possible causes of the identified intraspecific variation in the shape of the otoliths and temporal bounderies of the beginning of divergence of the considered three cryptic species are discussed.
Phylogeography and origin of freshwater populations of tubenose gobies of genus Proterorhinus (Gobiidae: Pisces) in Ponto-Caspian Basin
TLDR
It was established that the basin of the ancient Caspian Sea was the major donor area for the formation of the freshwater and brackish-water populations and it is suggested that the modern colonization of the Volga River by tubenose goby occurred from the Caspan Sea.
Zebrus pallaoroi sp. nov.: a new species of goby (Actinopterygii: Gobiidae) from the Mediterranean Sea with a dna-based phylogenetic analysis of the Gobius-lineage
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses reveal two genetically highly distinct clades among specimens identified as Zebrus zebrus and Z. pallaoroi, a new species of cryptobenthic fish from very shallow waters in the Mediterranean Sea.

Phylogenetic relationships of Ponto‐Caspian gobies and their relationship to the Atlantic—Mediterranean Gobiinae
TLDR
The paleohistorical data suggest that those lineages, which may both descend from pre-Oligocene Indo-Pacific ancestors, separated at least 12 million years ago, during the early Miocene, after the formation of the Paratethys Sea, and then evolved independently.
Invasion Genetics of Ponto-Caspian Gobies in the Great Lakes: A ‘Cryptic’ Species, Absence of Founder Effects, and Comparative Risk Analysis
TLDR
Results show that a diverse number of haplotypes characterize round and tubenose goby populations from both North America and Eurasian sites, fitting a risk analysis prediction of high genetic variability in their successful introductions.
Evolution and phylogeography of the tubenose goby genus Proterorhinus (Gobiidae: Teleostei): evidence for new cryptic species
TLDR
Analysis of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences and morphological characters from exotic Great Lakes as well as introduced and native Eurasian populations of Proterorhinus marmoratus (Pallas) sensu lato shows marked genetic and Morphological divergence that indicates species-level separation between fresh water and marine/brackish lineages.
The affinities of European sand gobies (Teleostei: Gobiidae)
The European ‘sand-goby’ genera, comprising the Atlantic-Mediterranean Pomatoschistus and Gobiusculus, Ponto-Caspian Knipowitschia and West Balkanian Economidichthys, are diagnosed, with special
Dispersal of the Ponto-Caspian amphipod Echinogammarus ischnus: invasion waves from the Pleistocene to the present
TLDR
The present study explores the phylogeographic patterns of this amphipod across its current distribution, based on an examination of nucleotide diversity in the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene.
Phylogeography of Ponto‐Caspian crustaceans: a benthic–planktonic comparison
TLDR
The past history of the Ponto‐Caspian fauna is examined through comparative phylogeographical studies on both benthic and planktonic taxa, based on an examination of nucleotide diversity in the mitochondrial, cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (COI) gene.
The endurance of endemism: the Mediterranean freshwater gobies and their prospects for survival
TLDR
Gobies (Teleostei: Gobiidae), spawning in fresh waters of the Mediterranean catchment area, are listed, and their diagnostic features and relationships summarized, and the biological capability for species recovery is assessed.
Description of two new species of tadpole-gobies (Teleostei: Gobiidae: Benthophilus)
TLDR
Two new species of tadpole-gobies are described, belonging to an assemblage of Benthophilus species with clearly differentiated dermal ossifications, which inhabits estuarine regions, deltas, lower reaches of rivers, and dam lakes in the Sea of Azov basin and is introduced in the Volga.
