Two hybrids between the monkey goby Neogobius fluviatilis and the round goby Neogobius melanostomus from the Rhine River were identified by genotyping and morphological comparison. These are the first records of goby-hybrids outside the parent species' native ranges worldwide.

The racer goby, Babka gymnotrachelus (Kessler, 1857) invades the Evros river: evidence of recent establishment in Greece
TLDR
Boat-based electrofishing sampling, following the EU Water Framework Directive monitoring program, provides first evidence of what is presumed to be a recently established population of the racer goby Babka gymnotrachelus in the transboundary Evros river basin.
First Record of the Pontian Monkey Goby Neogobius fluviatilis (Pallas, 1814) in the Someş River, Transylvania – Romania
In our research paper we recorded for the first time the presence of the Monkey goby ( Neogobius fluviatilis ) in SomeAŸ river, located in the North-Western Transylvania region. The first specimen
Invasion strategies in round goby (Neogobius melanostomus): Is bigger really better?
TLDR
The results of this study provide support for the previously postulated ´bigger is better´ and ´individual trait utility´ hypotheses explaining invasion success in round goby.
The ecological niche of invasive gobies at the Lower Rhine in intra- and interspecific competitive and predatory nteractions
TLDR
Mechanisms of niche partitioning were suggested to allow for the co-existence of the three Gobiidae and to enforce the impact on native species, as already decreasing densities of bighead goby and high levels of dietary competition indicate.

Recombinant Mitochondrial Genomes Reveal Recent Interspecific Hybridization between Invasive Salangid Fishes
TLDR
The high similarity or full identity of the recombinant fragments between the donor and the recipient sequences indicate a recent interspecific hybridization between P. chinensis and two Neosalanx species, and represents diagnostic genetic markers for the identification and distinguishing of hybrids, which can be used to control the invasive dynamics of hybrid salangid fishes.
Habitat selection patterns of a species at the edge – case study of the native racer goby population in Central Europe
TLDR
Habit data and densities of racer goby were used to disentangle the habitat selection patterns of the species at a river reach at the edge of its native range, and the ontogenetic variation in its distributions was examined.

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.
An invasive lineage of sculpins, Cottus sp. (Pisces, Teleostei) in the Rhine with new habitat adaptations has originated from hybridization between old phylogeographic groups
TLDR
It is concluded that hybridization between long separated groups has lead to the fast emergence of a new, adaptationally distinct sculpin lineage that possesses a unique ecological potential that does not occur in either of the source populations from the Rhine or the Scheldt, which allows the colonization of new habitats that have been free of sculpins.
Twenty years of invasion: a review of round goby Neogobius melanostomus biology, spread and ecological implications.
TLDR
This review provides a central reference as researchers continue studying N. melanostomus, which inhabit a wide range of temperate freshwater and brackish-water ecosystems and will probably continue to spread via ballast water, accidental bait release and natural dispersal worldwide.

Adaptive Sympatric Speciation of Polychromatic “Roundfin” Sailfin Silverside Fish in Lake Matano (Sulawesi)
TLDR
The data are consistent with a sympatric mode of divergence among three morphospecies under conditions effectively ruling out allopatric scenarios, and substantial, but incomplete, reproductive isolation suggests an early stage of speciation.
What can DNA tell us about biological invasions?
TLDR
It is concluded that genetic analysis of biological invasions is justified only under exceptional circumstances and recommended that biologists ask whether the questions to be addressed will materially affect management practice or policy.

TLDR
Neighbor-Net is presented, a distance based method for constructing phylogenetic networks that is based on the Neighbor-Joining (NJ) algorithm of Saitou and Nei and can quickly produce detailed and informative networks for several hundred taxa.

TLDR
tinyFLP/tinyCAT is a compact, open‐source software for automatic scoring of AFLP data that reads from PeakScanner© generated tables, optimizes the conversion of peak data into a binary allelic matrix and removes operator‐mediated ambiguities from the scoring process.
