Dealing with allometry in linear and geometric morphometrics: a taxonomic case study in the Leporinus cylindriformis group (Characiformes: Anostomidae) with description of a new species from Suriname
This work investigates species delimitation of the slender-bodied fishes in the Leporinus cylindriformis group using SMATR and MorphoJ and demonstrates the utility of the allometric corrections that they provide, and offers easy and effective approaches to such allometrically informed taxonomy.
Taxonomy and evolutionary morphology of African catfishes (Clariidae), roads to anguilliformity
Platyallabes tihoni shows a series of unique features: an anterior fontanel situated entirely between the frontals, two tooth plates on the prevomer, a reduced height of the suspensorium, a horizontal position of the sphenotic and pterotic and a toothed entopterygoid.
Virtual anthropology: the digital evolution in anthropological sciences.
Virtual Anthropology (VA) is a means of making physical anthropology's landmarks visible and measurable, and allows access to 'hidden' landmarks; in addition, the large number of semilandmarks accessible on the form enhances the power of Geometric Morphometrics analysis.
Landmarks, Localization, and the Use of Morphometrics in Phylogenetic Analysis
It is shown that assessments of patterns of morphological variation have been used traditionally to infer phylogenetic relations and it would seem be natural to assume that morphometric analyses would play a large role in phylogenetic studies.
Phylogenetic signals in morphometric data
It is concluded that the potential of morphometric data analysis methods (especially relative warp-based methods) to contribute to phylogenetic-systematic investigations should be explored further.
Morphological plasticity of invasive silver carp in divergent Midwestern rivers
Examination of silver carp collected from two hydrogeomorphically divergent rivers, the Illinois River and middle Wabash River, as examples of rivers that support SC populations at different invasion stages revealed a significant divergence in body morphology.
Congochromis, a New Cichlid Genus (Teleostei: Cichlidae) from Central Africa, with the Description of a New Species from the Upper Congo River, Democratic Republic of Congo
Abstract Congochromis, a new cichlid genus, is described on the basis of a suite of anatomical features of the cephalic laterosensory system, infraorbital series, oral dentition, and squamation. As
Rehabilitation of the Malagasy Endemic Kuhlia Sauvagii Regan, 1913 (Teleostei: Perciformes), with the Designation of a Neotype for Centropomus rupestris lacépéde, 1802
The endemic Malagasy kuhlid Kuhlia sauvagii Regan, 1913, is resurrected from synonymy with the Indo-Pacific Kuhlia rupestris (Lacépéde, 1802), and both species are redescribed.
