Mitochondrial phylogenomics of anchovies (family Engraulidae) and recurrent origins of pronounced miniaturization in the order Clupeiformes.

Abstract

We investigated the phylogenetic relationships among the major lineages of anchovies (Engraulidae) based on the comparison of mitogenome sequences. Analyses support the Engraulidae's monophyly but its placement remains uncertain. Within the Engraulidae, our results are congruent with the current morphology-based hypothesis in dividing the Engraulidae into… (More)
