BackgroundFish classifications, as those of most other taxonomic groups, are being transformed drastically as new molecular phylogenies provide support for natural groups that were unanticipated by previous studies. A brief review of the main criteria used by ichthyologists to define their classifications during the last 50 years, however, reveals slow progress towards using an explicit phylogenetic framework. Instead, the trend has been to rely, in varying degrees, on deep-rooted anatomical… 

The Phylogeny of Carangiform Fishes: Morphological and Genomic Investigations of a New Fish Clade

Combined analyses of new and previously identified discrete morphological characters and new andPreviously published genome-scale data are performed to characterize the evolutionary history and anatomical variation within this clade of fishes.

Comprehensive phylogeny of ray-finned fishes (Actinopterygii) based on transcriptomic and genomic data

It is suggested that most lineages of living fishes were already established in the Mesozoic Period, more than 65 million years ago, and genome-scale data support the structure of the fish phylogeny.

Genome-wide phylogenetic study of Percomorpha providing robust support for previous molecular classification

The results showed that Gobiaria, whose position is different from that in previous studies, was the earliest branching lineage, and the phylogenetic groups in this study were consistent with previous results using mitochondrial DNA and nuclear genes.

Phylogenomics and body shape morphometrics reveal recent diversification in the goatfishes (Syngnatharia: Mullidae)

It is suggested that habitat diversity in the early Pliocene oceans and the generalist ecology of goatfishes are key factors in the unusual evolutionary tempo of the family Mullidae.

Phylogenetic analyses of ray-finned fishes (Actinopterygii) using collagen type I protein sequences

It is demonstrated that phylogenetic analyses using collagen type I amino acid sequences generate tangible signals for actinopterygians that are highly congruent with recent genomic-level studies, however, there is limited congruence within percomorphs.

Reconciliation of taxonomy with laboratory fish research communities

A feasible solution from the standpoint of avoiding taxonomic name changes if possible is proposed, especially with respect to the zebrafish Danio rerio (Hamilton 1822), whose family name could change.

Phylogenetic systematics of the driftwood catfishes (Siluriformes: Auchenipteridae): a combined morphological and molecular analysis

A comprehensive phylogeny of species relationships of the Auchenipteridae is reconstructed here with a large-scale taxon sampling based on combined morphological and molecular datasets, and a new classification scheme is presented, based on the monophyly of major groups in both subfamilies.

This study evaluates the phylogeny of ray‐finned fishes (Actinopterygii) combining most available information (44 markers from nuclear and mitochondrial DNA and 274 morphological characters) to obtain synapomorphies and diagnoses for most clades.

An Inconvenient Monophyly: An Update on the Taxonomy of the Groupers (Epinephelidae)

This paper builds upon the most comprehensive phylogeny for groupers and their allies and uses it as a framework for a phylogenetic classification of the group and corrects previous errors or omissions in earlier works.

The Tree of Life and a New Classification of Bony Fishes

A comprehensive molecular phylogeny for bony fishes that includes representatives of all major lineages and the order Perciformes, considered by many a polyphyletic taxonomic waste basket, is defined for the first time as a monophyletic group in the global phylogeny.

A practical approach to phylogenomics: the phylogeny of ray-finned fish (Actinopterygii) as a case study

A practical approach that systematically compares whole genome sequences to identify single-copy nuclear gene markers for inferring phylogeny is presented and is an improvement over traditional approaches because it uses genomic information and automates the process to identify large numbers of candidate makers.

Phylogeny and temporal diversification of darters (Percidae: Etheostomatinae).

The results of the analyses indicate that DNA sequences sampled from single-copy nuclear genes can provide appreciable phylogenetic resolution for closely related animal species.

AMNIOTE PHYLOGENY AND THE IMPORTANCE OF FOSSILS

The importance of the critical fossils seems to reside in their relative primitive‐ness, and the simplest explanation for their more conservative nature is that they have had less time to evolve.

The Contribution of Paleontology to Teleostean Phylogeny

The main body of the paper is a historical review of paleontological methods, as practiced by workers on fossil teleosts, with the aim of identifying failures and successes, and of suggesting what contributions to phylogeny can and cannot be expected from paleontologists and their material.

First multi-locus timetree of seabreams and porgies (Percomorpha: Sparidae)

This study corroborates the non-monophyly of the traditional sparids without the inclusion of the family Centracanthidae, as well as that of many sparid genera, and finds robust support for a scenario of multiple radiations.

Resolving Cypriniformes relationships using an anchored enrichment approach

Most major clades obtained in prior molecular studies were validated as monophyletic, and these relationships can be used as a framework for addressing a variety of evolutionary questions for which Cypriniformes is ideally suited.
