  journal={Ichthyological Research},
The rare, monotypic deep-sea fish family Stylephoridae has long been considered a member of the order Lampridiformes (opahs, velifers, ribbonfishes), and no systematic ichthyologist has questioned its placement within the order for over 80 years. Recently three individuals of Stylephorus chordatus were collected from different oceans, and we sequenced the whole mitochondrial genome and a partial nuclear recombination activating gene 1 (RAG1) gene sequences for each specimen. We aligned these… 

Origin and phylogenetic interrelationships of teleosts : honoring Gloria Arratia : proceedings of the international symposium at the ASIH Annual Meeting in St. Louis, Missouri, 2007

A set of all 13 mitochondrial protein coding genes from 230 mitochondrial genomes is used in a large-scale phylogenetic analysis of teleost relationships and the resulting best phylogenetic hypothesis is discussed in the context of other recent molecular phylogenetic studies of Teleost and with respect to conventionally understood teleost interrelationships.

New insights on early evolution of spiny-rayed fishes (Teleostei: Acanthomorpha)

This study provides new insights into the early evolution of the acanthomorphs and the euteleost allies based on the phylogenetic analysis of a newly developed dataset combining nine nuclear and mitochondrial gene markers, and largely agrees with other recent studies based on nuclear loci in inferring an Early Cretaceous origin for the ac anthomorphs followed by a Late Cret Jurassic/Early Paleogene radiation of major lineages.

Phylogenetic Relationships among Fishes in the Order Zeiformes Based on Molecular and Morphological Data

The results are suggestive of a rapid diversification among the major lineages of Zeiformes during the Late Cretaceous and revised outgroups affected the phylogenetic conclusions, especially those based on morphology.

Evolutionary history of anglerfishes (Teleostei: Lophiiformes): a mitogenomic perspective

The acquisition of novel features, such as male dwarfism, bioluminescent lures, and unique reproductive modes allowed the deep-sea ceratioids to diversify rapidly in a largely unexploited, food-poor bathypelagic zone relative to the other lophiiforms occurring in shallow coastal areas.

The Phylogenetic Intrarelationships of Spiny-Rayed Fishes (Acanthomorpha, Teleostei, Actinopterygii): Fossil Taxa Increase the Congruence of Morphology with Molecular Data

These results provide morphological synapomorphies and independent corroboration of clades previously only recovered from molecular data, thereby suggesting the emergence of a congruent picture of acanthomorph deep intrarelationships.

A comparison of complete mitochondrial genomes of silver carp Hypophthalmichthys molitrix and bighead carp Hypophthalmichthys nobilis: implications for their taxonomic relationship and phylogeny.

Analyses of the sequence comparison and phylogeny using concatenated protein sequences support the view that the two species belong to the genus Hypophthalmichthys, and further studies are needed in order to confirm this conclusion.

Phylogenetic relationships within the primitive acanthomorph fish genus Polymixia, with changes to species composition and geographic distributions

A molecular phylogenetic study of Polymixia helps explain the evolution of some morphological characters previously used to distinguish groups of species, particularly dorsal-fin soft-ray count, shape of rows of scale ctenii, and number of pyloric caeca.

The Tree of Life and a New Classification of Bony Fishes

A comprehensive molecular phylogeny for bony fishes that includes representatives of all major lineages and the order Perciformes, considered by many a polyphyletic taxonomic waste basket, is defined for the first time as a monophyletic group in the global phylogeny.

Confronting Sources of Systematic Error to Resolve Historically Contentious Relationships: A Case Study Using Gadiform Fishes (Teleostei, Paracanthopterygii, Gadiformes)

This phylogeny is used to establish a new higher-level classification of Gadiformes as a way of clarifying the evolutionary diversification of the order and reiterate the importance of examining phylogenomic analyses for evidence of systematic error that can emerge as a result of unsuitable modeling of biological factors and/or methodological issues.



The phylogenetic position of toadfishes (order Batrachoidiformes) in the higher ray-finned fish as inferred from partitioned Bayesian analysis of 102 whole mitochondrial genome sequences

The resultant phylogenies strongly suggest that the toadfishes are not members of relatively primitive higher actinopterygians (ParacanthopteryGii), but belong to a crown group of actinoperative groups (Percomorpha), as was demonstrated for ophidiiform eels and anglerfishes in the previous study.

Organization of the Mitochondrial Genome of a Deep-Sea Fish, Gonostoma gracile (Teleostei: Stomiiformes): First Example of Transfer RNA Gene Rearrangements in Bony Fishes

The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial genome for a deep-sea fish, Gonostoma gracile, was determined and two steps of tandem duplication of gene regions, each followed by deletions of genes, can be invoked as mechanisms generating tRNA gene rearrangements in a bony fish mitochondrial genome.

Major patterns of higher teleostean phylogenies: a new perspective based on 100 complete mitochondrial DNA sequences.

Use of mitogenomic information in teleostean molecular phylogenetics: a tree-based exploration under the maximum-parsimony optimality criterion.

It is concluded that judicious choice of mitochondrial genes and appropriate data weighting, in conjunction with purposeful taxonomic sampling, are prerequisites for resolving higher-level relationships in teleosts under the maximum-parsimony optimality criterion.

The phylogenetic relationships of lampridiform fishes (Teleostei: acanthomorpha), based on a total-evidence analysis of morphological and molecular data.

A phylogenetic hypothesis isomorphic with the total-evidence phylogeny is presented that is congruent with the most recent morphological analysis of the Lampridiformes and rejects a diphyletic origin of elongate body form within the clade.

Mitogenomic Evolution and Interrelationships of the Cypriniformes (Actinopterygii: Ostariophysi): The First Evidence Toward Resolution of Higher-Level Relationships of the World’s Largest Freshwater Fish Clade Based on 59 Whole Mitogenome Sequences

The present study represents the first attempt toward resolution of the higher-level relationships of the world’s largest freshwater-fish clade based on whole mitochondrial genome sequences from 53 cypriniforms plus 6 outgroups, and it is advocated that RY-coding, which takes only transversions into account, effectively removes this likely “noise” from the data set and avoids the apparent lack of signal by retaining all available positions in the dataSet.

A molecular analysis of the interrelationships of tetraodontiform fishes (Acanthomorpha: Tetraodontiformes).

The root of the mammalian tree inferred from whole mitochondrial genomes.

DNA barcoding Australia's fish species

It is concluded that cox1 sequencing, or ‘barcoding’, can be used to identify fish species.
