Abstract The Poor Fork of the Cumberland River has been interpreted as an area of secondary contact and hybridization between Etheostoma nigrum and the closely related E. susanae. I examined mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) diversity among E. nigrum populations in the adjacent Kentucky River drainage, E. susanae populations in the Cumberland River drainage, and the population of E. nigrum occurring in the putative hybrid zone of the Poor Fork. Fifteen restriction enzymes revealed the presence of four… 
A Mitochondrial DNA Analysis of the Species Status of the Endemic Waccamaw Darter, Etheostoma perlongum
TLDR
Coalescent simulations showed that incomplete lineage sorting between reproductively isolated populations is a plausible explanation for the failure of cyt b sequences to have achieved reciprocal monophyly, and strong haplotype frequency differentiation shows that free genetic exchange does not occur between the river and lake, and suggests reproductive isolation despite contact between these populations.
A New Species of Nothonotus Darter (Teleostei: Percidae) from the Caney Fork in Tennessee, USA
TLDR
A new species of Nothonotus is described from the Caney Fork River drainage, Tennessee, USA, and can be differentiated from other species in the N. maculatus species group endemic to the Cumberland River drainage with a combination of characters.
RIVER CAPTURE, RANGE EXPANSION, AND CLADOGENESIS: THE GENETIC SIGNATURE OF FRESHWATER VICARIANCE
TLDR
It is suggested that the genetic signature of capture is less likely to be retained when river capture merely translocates genetic lineages among established populations, as is inferred for the two galaxiid taxa studied here.
Across the Southern Alps by river capture? Freshwater fish phylogeography in South Island, New Zealand
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of galaxiid fish indicates that western populations, along with populations in the north‐east (N = 18), represent a previously unidentified monophyletic Evolutionarily Significant Unit, possibly a cryptic species.
Phylogenetic relationships among Boleosoma darter species (Percidae: Etheostoma).
GENES MEET GEOLOGY: FISH PHYLOGEOGRAPHIC PATTERN REFLECTS ANCIENT, RATHER THAN MODERN, DRAINAGE CONNECTIONS
TLDR
DNA analysis of the freshwater Galaxias vulgaris complex was used to test a geological hypothesis of drainage evolution in South Island, New Zealand, and indicated that the Nevis flow reversal may have occurred in the early‐mid Pleistocene, which is roughly consistent with geological data.
Geological subsidence, river capture, and cladogenesis of galaxiid fish lineages in central New Zealand
We used mtDNA and isozyme analysis of a freshwater fish, Galaxias divergens (Osmeriformes: Galaxiidae), to test a hypothesis of drainage evolution in South Island, New Zealand. Geological evidence
An empirical test of freshwater vicariance via river capture
TLDR
Mitochondrial DNA phylogeography and analysis of nuclear orthologues of mtDNA sequences indicate that ‘flathead’Galaxias of the Von River have greatest genetic affinities with those of Southland, rather than those of the Clutha system, into which the von River presently drains.
Morphological Variation and Systematics of the Notropis rubellus Complex in Kentucky and Tennessee
TLDR
Support for recognition of these taxa as evolutionary species includes zoogeographic evidence in addition to the array of morphological characters.

TLDR
The distribution and mtDNA relationships among subspecies of Erimystax dissimilis are not consistent with Pleistocene vicariance, but relationships among Appalachian haplotypes are consistent with the late Pleistsocene integration of the modern Ohio River system.
Mitochondrial DNA Variation in Great Lakes Walleye (Stizostedion vitreum) Populations
TLDR
The study revealed several rare mitochondrial genotypes which may prove useful in creating genetically marked brood stocks and suggest that Great Lakes walleye persisted in at least two refugia during the last glaciation.

Molecular Evolutionary Genetics
TLDR
Recent developments of statistical methods in molecular phylogenetics are reviewed and it is shown that the mathematical foundations of these methods are not well established, but computer simulations and empirical data indicate that currently used methods produce reasonably good phylogenetic trees when a sufficiently large number of nucleotides or amino acids are used.
