Molecular phylogenetic affinities of some subtidal gobies (Teleostei: Gobiidae) from Qeshm Island

The phylogenetic relationships of four goby species using Rhodopsin and COI, as new markers were examined and results on molecular phylogenetic analysis were in agreement with those of other studies using different molecular markers and morphological examinations.

Diversification and colonization processes in Gobioidei predicted based on mitochondrial 12S rRNA with focusing on Oxudercidae

This work analyzed 58 Gobioidei species, including 45 East Asian oxudercids, based on 12S rRNA sequences to reconstruct the spatiotemporal diversification history of gobies, and yielded results compatible with the previous reports in a large framework.

Characterization of the complete mitochondrial genome of Rhinogobius leavelli (Perciformes: Gobiidae: Gobionellinae) and its phylogenetic analysis for Gobionellinae

The complete mitochondrial genome of R. leavelli was determined and it was placed in a well-supported monophyletic cluster with the other five Rhinogobius species in Gobionellinae and the phylogenetic position of RhinOGobius was closer to Tridentiger.

A time-calibrated molecular phylogeny is used, coupled with morphometric and comparative analyses, to examine evolutionary rates of both speciation and morphological diversification among gobiiform lineages and shows that Gobioidi is morphometrically distinct from its sister taxon Apogonoidei, but that families within Gobioidei overlap in morphospace.

Molecular phylogeny, analysis of character evolution, and submersible collections enable a new classification of a diverse group of gobies (Teleostei: Gobiidae: Nes subgroup), including nine new species and four new genera

A new classification is presented for the Nes subgroup of the Gobiosomatini in which all genera are monophyletic and in most cases diagnosed by combinations of morphological characters, and four new genera and nine new species are described here.

Molecular Phylogeny of Gobies (Teleostei, Gobiidae) from Iranian Water Bodies with a New Record

This research presents molecular reconstructions of seven goby species from the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Makran, using the nuclear Rag1 and Rhodopsin genes to present more precise phylogenetic relationships among the Gobiidae.

Molecular Phylogeny and Biogeography of the Amphidromous Fish Genus Dormitator Gill 1861 (Teleostei: Eleotridae)

A time-scaled molecular phylogeny of Dormitator was constructed using mitochondrial (Cytochrome b) and nuclear (Rhodopsin and β-actin) DNA sequence data to infer and date the cladogenetic events that drove the diversification of the genus and to relate them to the biogeographical history of Central America.



Phylogeny of Gobiidae and identification of gobiid lineages

This study builds on previous work in which gobiids were placed among their gobioid relatives by adding additional taxa as well as additional markers, providing a much more comprehensive portrait of gobiid intrarelationships and including all major lineages of gobies.

A standardized reanalysis of molecular phylogenetic hypotheses of Gobioidei

Data is reanalysed from four molecular phylogenetic studies of Gobioidei under standardization criteria in order to assess the robustness of their results, as well as to identify which parts of the gobioid tree are least resolved.

Gobies are deeply divided: phylogenetic evidence from nuclear DNA (Teleostei: Gobioidei: Gobiidae)

This study is the first to explore this deep divide in gobies and their relationships at the family level using phylogenetic data from nuclear genes (RAG1, rhodopsin) and confirms the split within the Gobiidae.

Phylogeny of Gobioidei and Placement within Acanthomorpha, with a New Classification and Investigation of Diversification and Character Evolution

This study integrates and expands previous molecular phylogenetic hypotheses to infer a comprehensive gobioid phylogeny, including a variety of outgroup taxa included to confirm sister taxon identity and position of the group among other acanthomorphs.

Phylogenetic relationships of coral-associated gobies (Teleostei, Gobiidae) from the Red Sea based on mitochondrial DNA data

Estimated divergence times suggest that coral-associated gobies have diversified in parallel to their preferred host corals, and that the uniformly black colored species of Gobiodon are not monophyletic but have evolved independently within two distinct species groups.

Phylogenetic relationships of Indo-Pacific coral gobies of the genus Gobiodon (Teleostei: Gobiidae), based on morphological and molecular data

Inclusion of a set of morphological characters in a total evidence analysis provided additional support at some nodes resolved by the molecules-only analysis and also allowed a number of new resolutions in the total evidence tree.

Molecular phylogeny of gobioid fishes (Perciformes: Gobioidei) based on mitochondrial 12S rRNA sequences.

The molecular phylogeny of the gobioid fishes, comprising 33 genera and 43 valid species, was examined by use of complete mitochondrial 12S rRNA and tRNA(VAL)genes and revealed comparable results and are generally congruent with those of morphological studies.

Messinian salinity crisis and the origin of freshwater lifestyle in western Mediterranean gobies.

Estimation of the ages of the two major lineages of this group of fish with a molecular clock suggests that they are much older than previously thought, and there should be no correlation between their diversification and the Miocene-Pliocene geological events, including the so-called Messinian salinity crisis.
