Family level molecular phylogenetic analyses of cichlid fishes have generally suffered from a limited number of characters and/or poor taxonomic sampling across one or more major geographic assemblage, and therefore have not provided a robust test of early intrafamilial diversification. [...] Key Result Representatives of major cichlid lineages across all geographic assemblages are included, as well as nearly twice the number of characters as any prior family-level study.Expand
Molecular phylogeny and biogeography of the Neotropical cichlid fish tribe Cichlasomatini (Teleostei: Cichlidae: Cichlasomatinae).
TLDR
The first comprehensive molecular phylogeny of the tribe Cichlasomatini including all valid genera as well as important species of questionable generic status suggests that all genera except Aequidens are monophyletic, but there are important disagreements between the traditional morphological relationships and the phylogeny based on molecular data. Expand
Phylogeny and age of chromidotilapiine cichlids (Teleostei: Cichlidae)
TLDR
The presumption that paleogeographic patterns rather than ecological factors shaped the ancient divergence within chromidotilapiines, which predates the origin of the mega-diverse austrotilapiine lineage, comprising the majority of African cichlid species, is allowed. Expand
Phylogeny, taxonomy, and evolution of Neotropical cichlids (Teleostei: Cichlidae: Cichlinae)
TLDR
The simultaneous analysis of 6309 characters for 90 terminals resulted in the first well‐supported and resolved generic‐level phylogeny for Neotropical cichlids, supporting a Gondwanan origin for Cichlidae. Expand
Multilocus phylogeny and rapid radiations in Neotropical cichlid fishes (Perciformes: Cichlidae: Cichlinae).
TLDR
The largest molecular phylogeny of Neotropical cichlid fishes produced to date is reported, combining data from three mitochondrial and two nuclear markers for 57 named genera and 154 species from South and Central America. Expand
Exon-based phylogenomics strengthens the phylogeny of Neotropical cichlids and identifies remaining conflicting clades (Cichliformes: Cichlidae: Cichlinae).
TLDR
A targeted-exon next-generation sequencing approach for investigating the evolutionary relationships of cichlid fishes (Cichlidae), with focus on the Neotropical subfamily Cichlinae using a set of 923 primarily single-copy exons designed through mining of the Nile tilapia genome. Expand

Mitogenomic evaluation of the historical biogeography of cichlids toward reliable dating of teleostean divergences
TLDR
It is proposed to add the biogeographic assumption of cichlid divergences by continental fragmentation as effective time constraints in dating teleostean divergence times to achieve a considerable reduction in credibility intervals in the estimated divergence times. Expand
Biogeography of the Mesoamerican Cichlidae (Teleostei: Heroini): colonization through the GAARlandia land bridge and early diversification
TLDR
A molecular phylogenetic and biogeographical analysis of the Mesoamerican cichlid fishes (Cichlidae: Cichlasomatinae: Heroini) shows a robust multigene phylogeny resolved from the deepest nodes to the species level, and does not support a direct colonization of Middle America from South America, or a Cretaceous–Palaeocene colonization through the proto-Antilles, as suggested by previous studies. Expand
Phylogeny of the Cichlid Subfamily Etroplinae and Taxonomic Revision of the Malagasy Cichlid Genus Paretroplus (Teleostei: Cichlidae)
TLDR
The sister-group relationship between Etroplus and Paretroplus represents a well-corroborated transoceanic link within Cichlidae, a pattern congruent with the Mesozoic fragmentation of Gondwana. Expand
Phylogeny of the sea spiders (Arthropoda, Pycnogonida) based on direct optimization of six loci and morphology
TLDR
This phylogeny represents a solid framework to work towards the understanding of pycnogonid systematics, providing a data set and a testable hypothesis that indicate those clades that need severe testing, especially some of the deep nodes of the pycnogsonid tree and the relationships of ammotheid and callipallenid forms.

TLDR
The hypothesis of relationships for Cichlidae based on nucleotide characters from 16S alone, arguably the most comprehensive and broadly sampled data set across all major geographic assemblages to date, is congruent with prevailing hypotheses regarding the sequence of Gondwanan fragmentation and a vicariance scenario to explain the current distribution of cichlid fishes. Expand
Multilocus phylogeny of cichlid fishes (Pisces: Perciformes): evolutionary comparison of microsatellite and single-copy nuclear loci.
TLDR
An evolutionary hypothesis of the major lineages of cichlid fishes based on DNA sequence data from two nuclear loci is presented and it is demonstrated that the two new DNA markers could be widely applied in perciform systematics. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA Phylogeny of the Family Cichlidae: Monophyly and Fast Molecular Evolution of the Neotropical Assemblage
TLDR
The cichlid phylogeny suggests drift-vicariance events, consistent with the fragmentation of Gondwana, to explain current biogeographic distributions and relative rate tests suggest that Neotropical cICHlids have experienced accelerated rates of molecular evolution. Expand
Reconciling fossils and molecules: Cenozoic divergence of cichlid fishes and the biogeography of Madagascar
TLDR
A Cenozoic dispersal from continental landmasses may explain the origin of most extant Malagasy vertebrate groups better than a Jurassic/Cretaceous vicariance. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of the Malagasy and Australasian rainbowfishes (Teleostei: Melanotaenioidei): Gondwanan vicariance and evolution in freshwater.
TLDR
Results of the phylogenetic analysis indicate that Atheriniformes is polyphyletic and further corroborate recent morphological hypotheses, which have recovered Bedotiidae in a derived position within Atherinoidei. Expand
Total evidence: molecules, morphology, and the phylogenetics of cichlid fishes.
TLDR
The authors' analyses confirm the placement of Malagasy/Indian cichlids as the most basal lineages, with a sister-group relationship to the monophyletic African and Neotropical clades, and total evidence suggests that the controversial African genus Heterochromis is at the base of the African radiation. Expand
A molecular phylogeny for aplocheiloid fishes (Atherinomorpha, Cyprinodontiformes): the role of vicariance and the origins of annualism.
TLDR
This work presents a novel hypothesis of aplocheiloid relationships based on 1,009 bp of sequence data from three mitochondrial genes, and confirms the monophyly of the Neotropical family Rivulidae, while demonstrating a paraphyletic Old World assemblage. Expand
A molecular phylogeny of four endangered Madagascar tortoises based on MtDNA sequences.
TLDR
The phylogeny of four endemic tortoises in Madagascar is addressed using DNA sequences for the 12S and 16S rDNA and cyt b genes in mitochondrial DNA and concludes that the two Pyxis species are sister taxa and are imbedded in the genus Geochelone, rendering this latter genus paraphyletic. Expand
Evolutionary conservation of microsatellite flanking regions and their use in resolving the phylogeny of cichlid fishes (Pisces: Perciformes)
TLDR
The design of phylogenetically highly versatile MFR-primers will be of use not only for phylogeny reconstruction among families of perciform fishes, but also for population-level work in the thousands of species belonging to this highly species-rich suborder of fishes. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships among Damselfishes (Teleostei: Pomacentridae) as Determined by Mitochondrial DNA Data
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of the family Pomacentridae were explored using mitochondrial DNA sequence data from the mitochondrial transfer RNA Phe, 12S mitochondrial ribosomal RNA, and 1510 base pairs for 23 species in 14 genera of pomacentrids and suggest that it is a polyphyletic assemblage.
