Comparative historical biogeography of three groups of Nearctic freshwater fishes across central Mexico.
TLDR
The most recent common ancestor of each of the three freshwater fish groups diversified in central Mexico in the Late Miocene, but the lack of a strong congruence in their biogeographic patterns, and the differences in species richness among the three clades might be evidence for distinct patterns of diversification.
Ecological diversification associated with the benthic‐to‐pelagic transition by North American minnows
TLDR
Findings indicate that colonization of the pelagic zone by minnows involved myriad phenotypic and dietary changes associated with exploitation of terrestrial subsidies, exhibiting phenotype–dietary covariation, an expansion of ecological roles and a burst in diversification rates in response to the ecological opportunity afforded by the colonization of a novel habitat.
Interspecific hybridization causes long‐term phylogenetic discordance between nuclear and mitochondrial genomes in freshwater fishes
TLDR
The hypothesis that freshwater fish phylogenies should, on average, show more discordance because of their higher propensity for hybridization in the past is tested, and concordance between mitochondrial and nuclear gene trees is on average 50% higher in marine fishes.
Quaternary refugia and secondary contact in the southern boundary of the Brazilian subregion: comparative phylogeography of freshwater fish
TLDR
This work represents a first approach to understand how geologic and paleoclimatic changes have affected the distribution of genetic variation in the Southern Pampean Area.
Gulf Coast vicariance shapes phylogeographic history of a North American freshwater mussel species complex
TLDR
This work tested if speciation was due to vicariant events of fluctuating sea levels that separated lineages east‐west of the Mobile Basin (Central Gulf Coast speciation hypothesis), and if the timing of divergences occurred 8.5–3.5 MYA (Gulf Coast allopatric speciation model).
Comparative Phylogeography of Mississippi Embayment Fishes
TLDR
Investigation of the relative roles of pre-Pleistocene and Pleistocene events in shaping phylogeographic relationships of four stream dwelling fishes in the Mississippi Embayment found a high degree of isolation by drainage in Noturus species, but no single event explains any common divergence across all taxa.
Phylogeography of Rhinichthys cataractae (Teleostei: Cyprinidae): pre‐glacial colonization across the Continental Divide and Pleistocene diversification within the Rio Grande drainage
TLDR
Estimates of the timing of divergence within the R. cataractae species-group, combined with ancestral area-reconstruction methods, indicate a separation between the eastern and western lineages during the Pliocene to early-Pleistocene, with a direction of colonization from the west of the Continental Divide eastward.
Ecological clustering within a diverse minnow assemblage according to morphological, dietary and isotopic data
TLDR
Important shape variation among species was primarily associated with mouth orientation and caudal peduncle morphology, implicating the importance of trophic and activity patterns and exhibiting dynamic ecologies based largely on utilisation of the benthic–pelagic resource axis.

Gene lineages and eastern North American palaeodrainage basins: phylogeography and speciation in salamanders of the Eurycea bislineata species complex
TLDR
The molecular genetic results corroborate geological and faunistic evidence suggesting that palaeodrainage connections altered by glacial advances and headwater erosion occurring between the mid‐Miocene and Pleistocene epochs explain regional patterns of biodiversity in eastern North American streams.
TEMPORAL PATTERNS OF DIVERSIFICATION AND MICROENDEMISM IN EASTERN HIGHLAND ENDEMIC BARCHEEK DARTERS (PERCIDAE: ETHEOSTOMATINAE)
TLDR
Results are concordant with the hypothesis that geologically stable areas of eastern North America have facilitated both the generation and preservation of lineages across a substantial breadth of evolutionary time, and that allopatric speciation in darters has occurred at much smaller spatial scales than previously realized.
SPECIATION IN NORTH AMERICAN BLACK BASSES, MICROPTERUS (ACTINOPTERYGII: CENTRARCHIDAE)
TLDR
A Gulf Coast allopatric speciation model is proposed, and predicts periods of dynamic speciation driven by sea level fluctuations in the Late Miocene and Pliocene.
RAPID ALLOPATRIC SPECIATION IN LOGPERCH DARTERS (PERCIDAE: PERCINA)
TLDR
The empirical observation of high diversification rates in logperches demonstrates that allopatric speciation can occur rapidly, and demonstrates that the geographic mode of speciation for a clade cannot be inferred from the diversification rate.
VICARIANCE BIOGEOGRAPHY, PARSIMONY, AND EVOLUTION IN NORTH AMERICAN FRESHWATER FISHES
The North American freshwater fish fauna exhibits considerable species diversity and patterns of endemism. The fauna has enormous potential for use in investigations and tests of biogeographic and
Intraspecific phylogeography of Percina evides (Percidae: Etheostomatinae): an additional test of the Central Highlands pre‐Pleistocene vicariance hypothesis
TLDR
Pleistocene vicariance hypothesis is tested with a phylogeographic analysis of the percid species Percina evides, which is widely distributed in several disjunct areas of the Central Highlands, and recovery of very limited mitochondrial DNA polymorphism and lack of phyloGEographic structuring support a hypothesis of dispersal during or following the Pleistocene.
Phylogeography of the bigeye chub Hybopsis amblops (Teleostei: Cypriniformes): early Pleistocene diversification and post‐glacial range expansion
TLDR
Estimates of the timing of divergence indicated that prior to the onset of glaciation, vicariant events separated populations east and west of the Mississippi River, and populations expanded northward into previously glaciated regions and southward into the Cumberland River drainage.
Evidence of a cenozoic Betic-Kabilian connection based on freshwater fish phylogeography (Luciobarbus, Cyprinidae).
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships among 26 species of the subgenus Luciobarbus were examined through comparison of the complete sequence of the mitochondrial genes ATPase 6 and 8 and cytochrome b, indicating a closer relationship among species inhabiting Caucasian, Greek, and North African areas than between the latter and those of the Iberian region.
Hylid frog phylogeny and sampling strategies for speciose clades.
TLDR
The results show that hemiphractine hylids are not closely related to other hyLids and should be recognized as a distinct family, and that the speciose genus Hyla is polyphyletic, but that its species can be arranged into three monophyletic genera.
