The family Labridae is a large assemblage of marine fish composed of about 580 species in 82 genera distributed in tropical and temperate marine waters around the world. Several subgroups, currently classified as tribes, have been identified in this large family, yet only a few phylogenetic analyses have been performed on labrid clades. We confirm monophyly of the labrid tribe Labrini and propose a phylogeny of the 23 species of the genera Acantholabrus, Centrolabras, Ctenolabrus, Labrus… 
Phylogenetic relationships and evolutionary history of the reef W sh family Labridae
The family Labridae (including scarines and odacines) contains 82 genera and about 600 species of Wshes that inhabit coastal and continental shelf waters in tropical and temperate oceans throughout
Phylogenetic relationships and evolutionary history of the reef fish family Labridae.
A phylogenetic analysis of labrids was conducted to investigate relationships among the six classical tribes of wrasses, the affinities of the wrasses to the parrotfishes (scarines), and the broad phylogenetic structure among labrid genera, confirming the monophyly of a family Labridae that includes the parrots and butterfishes and strong support for many previously identified taxonomic subgroups.
Relationships of the temperate Australasian labrid fish tribe Odacini (Perciformes; Teleostei).
A phylogenetic analysis of odacines was conducted to investigate their relationships to other labrid fishes, the relationships of species within the tribe, and the evolution of herbivory within the group.
Dating the evolutionary origins of wrasse lineages (Labridae) and the rise of trophic novelty on coral reefs.
The current trophic diversity of the Labridae is a result of the accumulation of feeding modes dating back to the K/T boundary at 65 Ma, with all major feeding modes on present day reefs already in place 7.5 million years ago.
Phylogenetic and ecological inference of three Halichoeres (Perciformes: Labridae) species through geometric morphometrics
The results obtained from the geometric morphometry are consistent with works of functional morphology and their applications for the testing of phylogenetic hypotheses are equally satisfactory, however, caution is necessary because the similarities in morphometric data can reflect non-homologous and convergent features due to ecological roles, without representing kinships.
Evolution and biogeography of marine angelfishes (Pisces: Pomacanthidae).
Fossil calibrated estimates suggest that the Pomacanthidae has been impacted by both the Terminal Tethyan Event and the closure of the Isthmus of Panama, and ecological diversity and species-level diversification are restricted primarily to a single pygmy angelfish clade with an origin near the Oligocene-Miocene boundary.
The evolutionary history of Mediterranean Batoidea (Chondrichthyes: Neoselachii)
Divergence times show a parallel evolutionary history of Batoidea fauna and Mediterranean history, which began from the Triassic, and Raja species showed different ecological preferences related to depth and habitat, which indicated a genus speciation process driven by different habitat characteristics.
On the phylogenetic affinities of Centrolabrus trutta and Centrolabrus caeruleus (Perciformes: Labridae) to the genus Symphodus : molecular, meristic and behavioural evidences.
The data and the evidence available in the literature led us to propose the inclusion of C. trutta and C. caeruleus in the genus Symphodus, while S. melanocercus must be transferred to the genus Centrolabrus.
Northern refugia and recent expansion in the North Sea: the case of the wrasse Symphodus melops (Linnaeus, 1758)
Phylogeographic patterns based on both mitochondrial and nuclear genetic markers are analyzed on the corkwing wrasse, a rocky shore species inhabiting North Sea waters and temperate northeastern Atlantic Ocean from Norway to Morocco including the Azores, which shows a clear differentiation between the Atlantic and the Scandinavian populations.
Rapid radiation and cryptic speciation in mediterranean triplefin blennies (Pisces: Tripterygiidae) combining multiple genes.
The molecular data revealed two clearly supported clades within T. tripteronotus, whose divergence largely exceeded that found between other fish species, consequently these two groups should be considered two cryptic species diverging 2.75-3.32Mya along the Pliocene glaciations.
