Cephalopholis merupakan salah satu genera terbesar dalam subfamili Epinephelinae yang memiliki banyak species. Secara fenotip, C. urodeta dewasa mirip dengan juvenil C. sonnerati karena memiliki ciri mencolok yaitu garis yang menyudut pada sirip ekor. Untuk memahami hubungan genetik pada spesies ikan ini, maka dilakukan analisis molekuler menggunakan ruas gen CO1. Sejumlah spesies ikan (famili Serranidae) dikumpulkan dari wilayah Sulawesi Selatan seperti Sinjai dan Kepulauan Selayar. Karakter…

The groupers (family Serranidae) show high variability both in body shapes and coloration leads to highly morphological-based misidentification, which was aimed in autenthication of the grouper species using MT-COI gene.

Hybridisation among groupers (genus Cephalopholis) at the eastern Indian Ocean suture zone: taxonomic and evolutionary implications

Hybridisation is a significant evolutionary process that until recently was considered rare in the marine environment. A suture zone in the eastern Indian Ocean is home to numerous hybridising sister

Grouper DNA barcoding studies in Indonesia: A short review

This study reviewed the DNA barcoding approach in grouper identification in Indonesia based on the available literature, and concluded that the approach used to identify grouper fish in Indonesia is inadequate.



A molecular phylogeny of the groupers of the subfamily Epinephelinae (Serranidae) with a revised classification of the Epinephelini

A revised classification of the tribe Epinephelini is proposed that reflects the hypothesized shared ancestry of the group and recognizes 11 genera: Alphestes, Cephalopholis, Dermatolepis, Epinephelus, Gonioplectrus, Hyporthodus, Mycteroperca, Plectropomus, Saloptia, Triso, and Variola.

Ten species in one: DNA barcoding reveals cryptic species in the neotropical skipper butterfly Astraptes fulgerator.

The results add to the evidence that cryptic species are prevalent in tropical regions, a critical issue in efforts to document global species richness, and illustrate the value of DNA barcoding, especially when coupled with traditional taxonomic tools, in disclosing hidden diversity.

Taxonomic Relationship Among Seven Species of Groupers (Genus Epinephelus; Family Serranidae) as Revealed by RAPD Fingerprinting

The present work is an attempt to study and ratify the status of Epinephelus spp.

DNA barcoding, phylogenetic study of Epinephelus spp. from Andaman coastal region, India

DNA barcoding may be useful in bringing out the evolutionary relatedness between different species and Mitochondrial COI data has an advantage over an individual dataset because of its higher resolving power.

DNA barcodes distinguish species of tropical Lepidoptera.

It is shown that cytochrome c oxidase I DNA barcodes effectively discriminate among species in three Lepidoptera families from Area de Conservación Guanacaste in northwestern Costa Rica, suggesting DNA barcoding will significantly aid species identification and discovery in tropical settings.

Barcoding animal life: cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 divergences among closely related species

It is indicated that sequence divergences at COI regularly enable the discrimination of closely allied species in all animal phyla except the Cnidaria and constraints on intraspecific mitochondrial DNA divergence arising through selective sweeps mediated via interactions with the nuclear genome.

DNA barcoding reveals overlooked marine fishes

DNA barcoding, the analysis of a standardized region of the cytochrome c oxidase 1 gene, was used to examine patterns of sequence divergence between populations of 35 fish species from opposite sides of the Indian Ocean, suggesting that current taxonomic systems substantially underestimate species diversity.

Origins of species richness in the Indo‐Malay‐Philippine biodiversity hotspot: evidence for the centre of overlap hypothesis

A pattern of isolation between the Pacific and the Indian Ocean faunas is evident across a wide range of taxa, consistent with the centre of overlap hypothesis and highlights the importance of this process in generating biodiversity within the IMP.

A simple method for estimating evolutionary rates of base substitutions through comparative studies of nucleotide sequences

Some examples were worked out using reported globin sequences to show that synonymous substitutions occur at much higher rates than amino acid-altering substitutions in evolution.

Indo-Pacific coral-reef fishes as indicators of conservation hotspots

The concept of “hotspots,” or threatened areas of extraordinary endemism and/or biodiversity, has been effectively used to target conservation priorities, although it has been applied mainly to
