Polyploidy, the multiplication of entire setsof chromosomes beyond the normal set of two,has occurred extensively, independently, and isoften repeated in many groups of fish, from thesharks to the higher teleosts. While there areseveral ways that a polyploid fish can develop,environmental change and hybrid stabilizationmay play a large role in the initiation of anew polyploid species. Despite its prevalence,the importance of polyploidy in the evolutionof the fishes is unclear. Polyploidy is… 
The Reproductive Ecology of Diploid and Tetraploid Galax urceolata
TLDR
Few differences are found in the reproductive ecology of diploid and tetraploid Galax, which when combined with obligate outcrossing increases the potential for gene flow between cytotypes and reduces the likelihood of differentiation.
Comparative analysis reveals that polyploidy does not decelerate diversification in fish
TLDR
The results suggest that polyploidy is generally not associated with decreased diversification in fish – a pattern that stands in contrast to that previously observed in plants.
Natural Pathways towards Polyploidy in Animals: The Squalius alburnoides Fish Complex as a Model System to Study Genome Size and Genome Reorganization in Polyploids
TLDR
It was first demonstrated that a regulatory mechanism involving dosage compensation by gene-copy silencing exists in allotriploid females and that allelic expression patterns differed either between genomically equivalent individuals or within the same individual (between tissues and genes).
Different trajectories of polyploidization shape the genomic landscape of the Brettanomyces bruxellensis yeast species
TLDR
This study sequenced a large number of isolates from the Brettanomyces bruxellensis yeast species, finding that each subpopulation had a unique polyploidization history with distinct trajectories, and highlights the multiplicity of the trajectories leading topolyploid genomes within a same species.
Meiotic differentiation in two allopatric population groups of the tetraploid frog Odontophrynus americanus from Argentina
TLDR
The presence of extra chromosomes detected in southeastern populations and the mitotic and meiotic irregularities reported from other populations account for a high cytological variability between populations of the tetraploid frog Odontophrynus americanus, which can be ascribed to polyploidy.
Substantially adaptive potential in polyploid cyprinid fishes: evidence from biogeographic, phylogenetic and genomic studies
TLDR
The results suggest that polyploidy in Cyprinidae is far more than an evolutionary dead end, but rather shows substantially adaptive potential, and Polyploid cyprinids constitute an ideal model system for unveiling largely unexplored consequences of WGD in vertebrates.
Polyploidy in Fish and the Teleost Genome Duplication
TLDR
It is argued that, although evidence remains sparse, the TGD may have had a profound influence on the evolutionary success and the biodiversity of teleosts and the evolution of the authors' own paleopolyploid genome.
Climatic variation and the distribution of an amphibian polyploid complex.
TLDR
The data suggest that large-scale climatic conditions have played a role in the establishment of the polyploid H. versicolor in at least some portions of its range, and support the hypothesis that increased tolerance to severe environmental conditions is a plausible mechanism of polyploids establishment.

Role of polyploidy in the evolution of fishes.
TLDR
The arguments against the importance of Polyploidy are: (a) that the large amount of gene duplication in polyploids dilutes the effects of new mutations so significant adaptive changes are unlikely, (b) that Polyploids in animals is restricted mainly to asexual forms which are evolutionary dead ends, and (c) the number of polyploid animals relative to diploids is small.

TLDR
Some of the genetic and genomic attributes of polyploids may have both biochemical and ecological benefits that contribute to the success ofpolyploid plants in nature.
Polyploid incidence and evolution.
TLDR
New estimates for the incidence of polyploidy in ferns and flowering plants are presented based on a simple model describing transitions between odd and even base chromosome numbers, and it is indicated that ploidy changes may represent from 2 to 4% of speciation events in flowering plants and 7% in f Ferns.
Tetraploidy and the Evolution of Salmonid Fishes
TLDR
It is proposed that genome doubling has taken place at least once in the evolution of vertebrates and isozyme studies that are consistent with this idea are described.
Genetic Variability in Species with Extensive Gene Duplication: The Tetraploid Catostomid Fishes
TLDR
The present analysis of genetic variability at a number of enzyme loci in many species of many genera within a tetraploid family helps provide a broad evolutionary picture of strategies of Genetic variability found in different taxa, and suggests anumber of components which are probably contributing to both genetic variability and to the loss of duplicate gene expression.
Natural occurrence of monoploids and polyploids in the Indian catfish, Heteropneustes fossilis
TLDR
Owing to the absence of well-defined sex chromosomes in fishes, polyploidy has spontaneously originated, perhaps repeatedly, and has been sustained in populations of diverse orders, and the workload for replication has perhaps minimized the abundance of tetraploid fish species.
Tetraploidy and the Evolution of the Catostomid Fishes
TLDR
This chapter will explore the many facets of tetraploidy as they effect the evolution in the catostomids, and view the catstomids as a model for genome evolution in other taxa, including the early vertebrates.
Chondrichthyan cytogenetics: A comparison with teleosteans
TLDR
Thermal denaturation of the genomes of six selachians revealed derived curves that are characteristic of heterogeneity in nucleotide distribution, which has not been evidenced in most of the teleosteans investigated thus far.
The Physiology and Behavior of Triploid Fishes
TLDR
Artificially produced triploids generally differ from conspecific diploids in three fundamental ways: they are more heterozygous, they have larger but fewer cells in most tissues and organs, and their gonadal development is disrupted to some extent.
Polyploid Hosts: Strange Attractors for Parasites?
TLDR
It is shown here that polyploid host species may harbour higher parasite species richness than their diploid relatives, and in this context, studies of polyploids and their associated parasites may considerably help evolutionary ecologists and parasitologists to better understand hostparasite interactions.
