Astyanax fasciatus has become a model organism for the study of regressive and adaptive evolution in cave animals. To fully understand these processes, it is important to have background information on the systematics and phylogeography of surface and cave populations of this species. Here we investigate the phylogeography of A. fasciatus in North and Central America and also the historical biogeography of this region. Phylogenetic analysis of part of the mtDNA cytochrome b gene from 26 surface… CONTINUE READING
