  author={Jin-quan Yang and Shunping He and J{\"o}rg Freyhof and Kai Witte and Huanzhang Liu},
The Gobioninae are a group of morphologically and ecologically diverse Eurasian freshwater cyprinid fishes. The intergeneric relationships of this group are unresolved and the possible monophyly of this subfamily remains to be established. We used complete mitochondrial cytochrome b gene sequences from most genera within the gobionine group, in addition to a selection of cyprinid outgroups, to investigate the possible monophyly of this group and resolve the interrelationships within the group… 
Phylogeny of the gudgeons (Teleostei: Cyprinidae: Gobioninae).
The origin and divergence of Gobioninae fishes (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) based on complete mitochondrial genome sequences
Evidence is provided that supports the origin and differentiation of this fauna as being associated with some special paleo-environmental events occurring from the early Paleocene to the Pliocene.
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.
Two complete mitochondrial genomes of Paraleucogobio fishes (Cypriniformes: Gobionidae)
The findings indicate that Paraleucogobio is a junior synonym of Gnathopogon, and the two mitochondrial genomes showed similar gene arrangements, codon use, gene overlaps or gene intervals with the length of 16,596 BP and 16,598 bp.
Estimated evolutionary tempo of East Asian gobionid fishes (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) from mitochondrial DNA sequence data
A rather complete molecular phylogeny of the East Asian gobionid fishes was constructed based on mtDNA cytochrome b gene sequences, and Peaks of speciation were identified and found approximately to be coincident with East Asian geological events, such as uplifts of the Tibetan plateau and formation of the monsoon system.
The origins of limnetic forms and cryptic divergence in Gnathopogon fishes (Cyprinidae) in Japan
The origin of the limnetic forms and the population divergence of the Japanese Gnathopogon species, using molecular phylogenetic and phylogeographic analyses, revealed three major lineages in G. elongatus, which was inferred to originate in the present Lake Biwa in the late Pleistocene.
Morphological characteristics and variation of gudgeon, Gobio gobio (Actinopterygii: Cyprinidae), from the Odra River drainage, Poland
The gudgeon, G. gobio, is a small fish of low economic importance, and therefore has hitherto received little attention, and for a long time gudgeons were thought to belong to a frequently found, polymorphic species Gobio gobio.


Molecular systematics of Xenocyprinae (teleostei: cyprinidae): taxonomy, biogeography, and coevolution of a special group restricted in East Asia.
The phylogenetic analysis suggested that Distoechodon hupeinensis might be transferred to the genus Xenocypris, the taxonomic status of the genus Plagiognathops might be preserved, and species of Xenocy Prinae and Plagiagnathops form a monophyletic group that is sister toThe genus DistoeChodon and Pseudobrama.
Molecular phylogeny of Cyprinidae inferred from cytochrome b DNA sequences.
Phylogenetic relationships between European cyprinids were investigated by comparing cytochrome b gene sequences from 29 species, among which 20 were newly sequenced, in the first molecularly based study of cyPRinid diversity.
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.
Phylogeny of the East Asian cyprinids inferred from sequences of the mitochondrial DNA control region
The mitochondrial DNA control region, 896-956 base pairs, of 17 representative species of East Asian cyprinids was sequenced and compared with those of 21 other cyprInids to study their phylogenetic relationships, indicating that there are two principal lineages in Cyprinidae:Cyprinine and Leuciscine.
The Taxonomic Study of Gudgeons of the Subfamily Gobioninae(Cyprinidae) in Korea
The taxonomy of gudgeons of the subfamily Gobioninae in Korea is reviewed and keys to supraspecific taxa (subfamilies and genera) are provided, as well as the synonyms and distribution of the species or subspecies.
Mitochondrial phylogeny of the European cyprinids: implications for their systematics, reticulate evolution, and colonization time.
The estimation confirms the hypothesis of Almaça and Banarescu that European cyprinid subfamilies started to diversify 35 mya and confirms the hypotheses of Bianco on the diversification of European leuciscines in the Mediterranean area during the late Messinian.
Phylogeny and biogeography of the family Cyprinidae in the Middle East inferred from cytochrome b DNA- evolutionary significance of this region.
The phylogenetic relationships of cyprinid species from the Middle East and neighboring biogeographical areas were investigated using cytochrome b sequence variation in order to test hypotheses that
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.
Comparative skeletal studies of 92 species belonging to 76 genera of Cyprinidae were made and 25 characters associated with their differentiation were used for comparison with the homologous
Multiple origins of polyploidy in the phylogeny of southern African barbs (Cyprinidae) as inferred from mtDNA markers
Evidence of multiple, independent origins of polyploidy occurring in the African Cyprinine cyprinids provides a significant contribution to the knowledge on the systematic diversity of these fishes, and warrants a thorough taxonomic reorganization of the genus Barbus.
