Abstract Turkey has a rich freshwater biodiversity in terms of Cyprinid genus in respect to its geographical location. To elucidate the phylogeny of the Alburnoides genus, one of these genera, genetic data for the cytochrome b gene (1141 bp) was generated for 445 samples collected at 42 sampling sites across their geographical distribution. A total of 54 mitochondrial haplotypes identified were distrubuted among distinct twelve species that did not share haplotypes with each other. Pairwise… Expand

Molecular dating for phylogenies containing a mix of populations and species by using Bayesian and RelTime approaches
Bayesian approach with coalescent tree priors generally produced excellent molecular dates and highest posterior densities with high coverage probabilities, and RelTime's performance was similar to that of the Bayesian approach, suggesting that it is also suitable to analyse data sets containing both populations and species variation when its computational efficiency is needed.

Molecular phylogeny of the genus Capoeta (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) in Anatolia, Turkey
It is suggested that four undescribed Capoeta species may exist in Anatolia freshwater and were shaped under paleogeographic conditions such as Pleistocene climate changes in Quarternary period as well as tectonic uplift and faulting, which probably has not changed up to now. Expand
Mitochondrial phylogeny and biogeography of the genus Gobio (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) in Turkey
The estimated divergence times between the three Gobio groups coincide with the late Miocene period in which the tectonic uplift of Anatolia and global climate fluctuations occurred and the relatively low genetic distance between Gobio species in the Turkish Lake District indicate that they are not good species.

Mitochondrial Genetic Differentiation of Spirlin (Actinopterigii: Cyprinidae) in the South Caspian Sea basin of Iran
Molecular evidence supports the hypothesis that A. bipunctatus does not exist in the south Caspian Sea basin of Iran, and that the western and eastern populations are distinct taxa. Expand
A multilocus assessment of nuclear and mitochondrial sequence data elucidates phylogenetic relationships among European spirlins (Alburnoides, Cyprinidae).
Molecular analyses revealed 17 Eurasian lineages divided into two main clades, termed the Ponto-Caspian and European in accordance with the lineage distribution, and the underestimation of species richness in the genus Alburnoides is confirmed. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of the algae scraping cyprinid genus Capoeta (Teleostei: Cyprinidae).
The results of this study show that Capoeta forms a strongly supported monophyletic subclade nested within the Luciobarbus clade, suggesting that specialized scraping morphology appeared once in the evolutionary history of the genus. Expand
Molecular phylogeny and historical biogeography of the Aphanius (Pisces, Cyprinodontiformes) species complex of central Anatolia, Turkey.
The hypothesis of geographic speciation driven by early Pliocene orogenic events in spite of morphological similarity among a subset of Aphanius fish comprising central Anatolia, Turkey is rejected. Expand
DNA barcoding of the fishes of the genus Alburnoides (Actinopterygii, Cyprinidae) from Caucasus
Despite the limited ability of COI to infer phylogenetic relationships, study provided evidence that Ponto-Caspian lineage of Alburnoides includes significantly larger number of species from Caspian Sea basin and inland basins of Central Asia. Expand
Molecular Evidence on the Evolutionary and Biogeographical Patterns of European Cyprinids
The existence of a Mediterranean realm independent of the central European route seems plausible based on the molecular evidence, and the new biogeographical scenario proposed here might apply to other primary freshwater European animals with low dispersal abilities, including fish, amphibians, and invertebrates.

Plate tectonics and biogeographical patterns of the Pseudophoxinus (Pisces: Cypriniformes) species complex of central Anatolia, Turkey.
The phylogenetic relationships of Pseudophoxinus (Cyprinidae: Leuciscinae) species from central Anatolia, Turkey are investigated to test the hypothesis of geographic speciation driven by early Pliocene orogenic events, and results are in agreement with a previous study of the Anatolian fish genus Aphanius.

Phylogenetic relationships of Greek cyprinidae: molecular evidence for at least two origins of the Greek cyprinid fauna.
Most of the Greek cyprinids were directly related to the Danubian ichthyofauna, however, at least four cases of a close phylogenetic relationship between Greek and Iberian endemic species were found. Expand
