Studies of the phylogenetic history of fishes on reefs and the impact of reefs on fish diversification have, to date, been limited to relatively small clades. We take advantage of a recent multi-locus, time-calibrated phylogeny of acanthomorph fishes and a broad-scale morphological dataset of body shape in reef acanthomorphs to explore the history and diversification of fish on reefs at the family level. We find that no reef family exhibits exceptional species diversity for their stem age and… 
Phylogenetic perspectives on reef fish functional traits
TLDR
It is argued that the combination of a phylogenetic and a functional approach will improve the understanding of the mechanisms of species assembly in extraordinarily rich coral reef communities.
Phylogenetic perspectives on reef fish functional traits: Evolution of functional traits
Functional traits have been fundamental to the evolution and diversification of entire fish lineages on coral reefs. Yet their relationship with the processes promoting speciation, extinction and the
Non-reef environments impact the diversification of extant jacks, remoras and allies (Carangoidei, Percomorpha)
TLDR
Through the ecological radiation of carangoid fishes, it is demonstrated that non-reef environments may sustain and promote processes of diversification of different marine fish groups, at least those including a large proportion of piscivorous species.
Influence of historical changes in tropical reef habitat on the diversification of coral reef fishes
TLDR
The fragmentation of tropical reef habitats over the Cenozoic was found to be a driver of Tropical reef fish diversification for 2 clades, but the approach did not allow the identification of striking associations between diversification dynamics and paleo-habitat fragmentation in contrast with theoretical model’s predictions.
The biogeography of tropical reef fishes: endemism and provinciality through time
TLDR
Examination of phylogenetic diversity and biogeographic data for coral reef fishes shows how assemblage structure and tropical provinciality has changed through time in the marine tropics.
Explaining the ocean's richest biodiversity hotspot and global patterns of fish diversity
TLDR
This work used phylogenetic approaches to address the causes of richness patterns among global marine regions, comparing the relative importance of colonization time, number of colonization events, and diversification rates (speciation minus extinction).
Punctual ecological changes rather than global factors drive species diversification and the evolution of wing phenotypes in Morpho butterflies
TLDR
The diversification of Morpho is found to be a diversification pattern driven by punctual ecological changes instead of a global driver or biogeographic history, and this study generates a time-calibrated phylogeny for all known species and inferred historical biogeography.
Ancestral biogeography and ecology of marine angelfishes (F: Pomacanthidae).
Punctuational ecological changes rather than global factors drive species diversification and the evolution of wing phenotypes in Morpho butterflies
TLDR
The diversification of Morpho is found to be a diversification pattern driven by punctuational ecological changes instead of a global driver or biogeographic history, possibly associated with lineages occupying different microhabitat conditions.
The influence of size on body shape diversification across Indo‐Pacific shore fishes *
TLDR
The results suggest that the influence of size on fish shape has largely been overwhelmed by lineage‐specific patterns of diversification that have produced the modern landscape of highly diverse forms that the authors currently observe in nature.

DO REEFS DRIVE DIVERSIFICATION IN MARINE TELEOSTS? EVIDENCE FROM THE PUFFERFISH AND THEIR ALLIES (ORDER TETRAODONTIFORMES)
TLDR
It is suggested that both intrinsic factors of reef habitat and extrinsic factors relating to the provincialization and regionalization of the marine biota during the Miocene played a role in shaping these patterns of diversity.
ELEVATED RATES OF MORPHOLOGICAL AND FUNCTIONAL DIVERSIFICATION IN REEF‐DWELLING HAEMULID FISHES
TLDR
It is demonstrated that rates of morphological evolution are faster in reef‐dwelling haemulids, suggesting that fine‐scale trophic niche partitioning and character displacement may be driving higher rates of Morphological evolution.
Reefs as Cradles of Evolution and Sources of Biodiversity in the Phanerozoic
TLDR
Analysis of fossil evidence indicates that reefs were disproportionally important in the origination of new species, which might be a consequence of low-diversity habitats being more susceptible to invasions.
The history and biogeography of fishes on coral reefs
The Tree of Life and a New Classification of Bony Fishes
TLDR
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.
Coral reefs as drivers of cladogenesis: expanding coral reefs, cryptic extinction events, and the development of biodiversity hotspots
TLDR
Patterns of diversification suggest that coral reefs acted as a refuge from high extinction, as reef taxa are able to sustain diversification at high extinction rates.
A Morphospace for Reef Fishes: Elongation Is the Dominant Axis of Body Shape Evolution
TLDR
It is found that evolutionary changes in body shape along an axis of elongation dominates diversification in reef fishes, suggesting a role for a range of developmental processes and functional consequences.
Two waves of colonization straddling the K–Pg boundary formed the modern reef fish fauna
TLDR
It is found that reef lineages successively colonized reef habitats throughout the Late Cretaceous and early Palaeogene, and that the broad framework of the modern reef fish fauna was in place within 10 Myr of the end-Cretaceous extinction.
Origins and escalation of herbivory in fishes: a functional perspective

TLDR
Analysis of functional morphospace suggests that the Cenozoic did indeed witness the appearance and proliferation of herbivory and grazing by marine fishes, and the arrival of these piscine herbivores had the potential to fundamentally alter the dynamics of benthic marine communities.
Coral reefs promote the evolution of morphological diversity and ecological novelty in labrid fishes.
TLDR
The results suggest that coral reef habitats promote the evolution of both trophic novelty and morphological diversity within fishes, and the preservation of coral reefs is necessary to safeguard current biological diversity but also to conserve the underlying mechanisms that can produce functional diversity in future.
