Genetic diversity and population structure of Terapon jarbua (Forskål, 1775) (Teleostei, Terapontidae) in Malaysian waters

The mixture of haplotypes revealed an extraordinary migration ability of T. jarbua (>1200 km) via ancient river connectivity, and the negative overall value of the neutrality test and a non-significant mismatch distribution are consistent with demographic expansion in the past.



Meristic and morphometric variation in the silver perch, Leiopotherapon plumbeus (Kner, 1864), from three lakes in the Philippines

This work was supported by the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC), Aquaculture Department, Binangonan Freshwater Station, and the University of the Philippines, Diliman, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Development.

Molecular phylogeny of Sinocyclocheilus (Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae) inferred from mitochondrial DNA sequences.

The molecular systematics of Leiopotherapon unicolor (Günther, 1859): testing for cryptic speciation in Australia's most widespread freshwater fish

Surprisingly, little genetic diversity was observed within L. unicolor and provided no evidence for the existence of cryptic species within this lineage, but a small sample set of L. aheneus used as the outgroup showed two highly divergent haplotypes strongly suggestive of cryptic speciation.

Molecular Systematics of the Thornfishes Genera Terapon and Pelates (Perciformes: Teraponidae) with Reference to the New Genus Pseudoterapon

Three externally similar thornfishes, Terapon jarbua, T. theraps, and Pelates quadrilineatus, can be distinguished by several fixed isozyme loci by using allozyme electrophoresis and partial 12S rRNA sequences of mitochondrial DNA.

Low isozyme variation in native and transplanted populations of the endemic Philippine silver perch, Leiopotherapon plumbeus (Kner, 1864) from three lakes in the Philippines

The average heterozygosities, genetic distances and FST values of specimens from the four sites were very low, suggesting that the native and transplanted populations had very low genetic variation and that they were genetically homogeneous despite the presence of morphological variation.

Species and endemicity status of the therapontid "Pigek", Mesopristes cancellatus (Cuvier, 1829) in the Philippines

Morphological comparison using principal component analysis and three genetic markers revealed that “Bulidao” and “Pigek” are indeed M. cancellatus species and are one and the same, and results suggest that M. canceatus is widely distributed throughout the Philippines contrary to what was previously thought.
