Early-branching euteleost relationships: areas of congruence between concatenation and coalescent model inferences

The results identify concordant areas with strong support for relationships within and between early-branching euteleost lineages but they also reveal limitations in the ability of larger datasets to conclusively resolve other aspects of that phylogeny.

A well-constrained estimate for the timing of the salmonid whole genome duplication reveals major decoupling from species diversification

An extensive set of gene paralogues retained from the salmonid WGD are characterized, showing that climate-linked ecophysiological factors, rather than WGD, were the primary drivers of salmonid diversification.

Addressing incomplete lineage sorting and paralogy in the inference of uncertain salmonid phylogenetic relationships

This work examines a sequence capture dataset from salmonids and uses alternative strategies to accommodate the effects of gene tree conflict based on aspects of salmonid genome history and the multispecies coalescent.

Molecular Phylogeny and Adaptive Mitochondrial DNA Evolution of Salmonids (Pisces: Salmonidae)

The RELAX program revealed that the ATP8 and CYTB genes supported intensified selection of the anadromous lineages and the phylogeny of Salmonidae was demonstrated and the mitochondrial DNA evolution pattern between anadromeous and freshwater salmonids was explored.

Phylogeny of Salmonoid Fishes (Salmonoidei) Based on mtDNA COI Gene Sequences (Barcoding)

It is concluded that the charr (Salvelinus) is one of the modern genera of salmonoids closest to their ancestor, and the hypothesis of the phylogenetic proximity of the genera Brachymystax, Hucho, and Salmo has been confirmed.

Revisiting the mitogenomic phylogeny of Salmoninae: new insights thanks to recent sequencing advances

The phylogeny of 46 Salmonidae species was inferred from their mitogenomic sequences and a Bayesian molecular-dated phylogenetic tree with very high statistical support showing Coregoninae and Salmoninae as sister subfamilies, as well as several new phylogenetic relationships among species and genus of the family.

The Genome and Linkage Map of the Northern Pike (Esox lucius): Conserved Synteny Revealed between the Salmonid Sister Group and the Neoteleostei

The first genome assembly, reference transcriptome and linkage map for northern pike is presented and the suitability of this species to provide a representative pre-duplication genome for future studies of salmonid and teleost evolution is evaluated.

Phylogeny and dating of divergences within the genus Thymallus (Salmonidae: Thymallinae) using complete mitochondrial genomes

This study provides far better resolution of the phylogenetic relationships and divergence dates of graylings than previous studies and validated that the Yalu grayling should be a synonym of the Amur grayling (T. grubii) at the whole mitogenome level.



Phylogeny of salmonids (Salmoniformes: Salmonidae) and its molecular dating: Analysis of nuclear RAG1 gene

The phylogenetic relationships among 26 species of salmonid fishes were studied using the RAG1 gene as phylogenetic marker, and it seems likely that divergence of the Prosopium and Coregonus ancestral lineages occurred during the same time interval.

Framing the Salmonidae Family Phylogenetic Portrait: A More Complete Picture from Increased Taxon Sampling

It is found that some groups in Salmonidae are older than previously thought and that the mitochondrial rate of molecular divergence varies markedly among genes and clades, and some species require taxonomic revision, including two monotypic genera, Stenodus and Salvethymus.

Phylogenetic Relationships of Extant Esocid Species (Teleostei: Salmoniformes) Based on Morphological and Molecular Characters

This study is the first study to integrate both morphological and molecular data into a phylogenetic analysis of Esox to provide a better understanding of esocid evolution and lay the foundation for the interpretation of fossil material assigned to E sox.

Phylogenetic Relationships of Esocoid Fishes (Teleostei) Based on Partial Cytochrome b and 16S Mitochondrial DNA Sequences

The phylogenetic analyses revealed previously undiscovered affinities between species of umbrids and esocids that imply the paraphyly of the Umbridae as currently defined.

Remarkable morphological stasis in an extant vertebrate despite tens of millions of years of divergence

Morphological stasis in these two allopatric lineages of Pantodon offers a living vertebrate model for investigating phenotypic stability over millions of generations in the face of profound fluctuations in environmental conditions.

Did genome duplication drive the origin of teleosts? A comparative study of diversification in ray-finned fishes

The results suggest that the causes of diversification in large clades are likely to be complex and not easily ascribed to a single event, even a dramatic one such as a whole genome duplication.

Ray-finned fishes make up half of all living vertebrate species. Nearly all ray-finned fishes are teleosts, which include most commercially important fish species, several model organisms for

Calibrating and constraining molecular clocks

In explaining the role of fossils in establishing timescales, the historical sequ ence in which key observations were made is reviewed, and a list of 63 key dates is presented, with thorough evidence and error expressions, for a wide range of organisms.

Relaxed Phylogenetics and Dating with Confidence

This work describes how it can be used to estimate phylogenies and divergence times in the face of uncertainty in evolutionary rates and calibration times and provides a means for measuring the clocklikeness of datasets and comparing this measure between different genes and phylogenies.
