The perciform group Labroidei includes approximately 2600 species and comprises some of the most diverse and successful lineages of teleost fishes. [] Key Method Phylogenetic analyses were based on a sample of 188 acanthomorph (spiny-rayed fish) species, primarily percomorphs (perch-like fishes), and DNA sequence data collected from 10 nuclear loci that have been previously used to resolve higher level ray-finned fish relationships. Phylogenies inferred from this dataset using maximum likelihood, Bayesian…

Ecomorphology and evolution of the pharyngeal apparatus of benthic damselfishes (Pomacentridae, subfamily Stegastinae)

The morphology of the pharyngeal jaw apparatus is analyzed in an ecological and phylogenetic context to understand the role of these structures in promoting functional capacity and/or diversification.

Relationship between diet and pharyngeal jaw morphology of Crenicichla species (Cichliformes: Cichlidae) in streams from Uruguay and Jacuí basins, Southern Brazil

The results indicated that the diet and the patterns of pharyngeal jaws were different among the species of Crenicichla, mainly the posterior process of the LPJ, the region of muscle insertion of LPJs with the neurocranium and the curvature of LPJ.

The hypothesis that pharyngeal jaw shape and tooth morphology are adaptive in an ecologically diverse radiation of Neotropical cichlid fishes that spans North, Central and South America is tested.

Pantanodontidae (Teleostei, Cyprinodontiformes), the sister group to all other cyprinodontoid killifishes as inferred by molecular data

A well-supported phylogeny is obtained, in which the monophyly of Poeciliidae, as supported by morphological data is refuted, and Pantanodon stuhlmanni, the type species of the genus, is recovered as the most basal cyprinodontoid lineage.

Morphology and evolution of bioluminescent organs in the glowbellies (Percomorpha: Acropomatidae) with comments on the taxonomy and phylogeny of Acropomatiformes

The anatomy of the bioluminescent organs in Haneda's glowbelly and the Glowbelly is described and the familial taxonomy of the Acropomatidae was modified such that the previously described Malakichthyidae and Synagropidae were recognized.

Tracing evolutionary decoupling of oral and pharyngeal jaws in cichlid fishes

It is shown that the two jaws were evolutionary decoupled at a late stage of the radiation, suggesting that decoupling contributed to micro‐niche partitioning and the associated rapidly increasing trophic diversity during this phase.

A Functional Approach to the Phylogeny of the Pharyngognath Teleosts

This case study has demonstrated that reciprocal illumination of functional morphological and phylogenetic findings can lead to the construction of new hypotheses on the basis of specialized character complexes which were unrecognized by the use of a purely descriptive morphological approach.

Independent evolution of the specialized pharyngeal jaw apparatus in cichlid and labrid fishes

This result supports the idea that the evolution of the specialized PJA provided these lineages with the morphological potential for their spectacular trophic radiations, and provides a new framework for the study of functional morphology and genetic basis of their PJA.

Pharyngeal biting mechanics in centrarchid and cichlid fishes : insights into a key evolutionary innovation

It is suggested that the key structural innovation in the development of the functionally versatile cichlid (labroid) pharyngeal jaw apparatus was the decoupling of epibranchials 4 from the upper pharynGEal jaws.

Evolutionary Strategies and Morphological Innovations: Cichlid Pharyngeal Jaws

The conversion of the preexisting elements into a new and significantly improved cichlid adaptive complex of high selective value may have evolved by rapid steps under influence of strong selection pressure acting on the minor reconstruction of the -genotype which is involved in evolutionary changes of the pertinent ontogenetic mechanisms.

Percomorph phylogeny: a survey of acanthomorphs and a new proposal

The interrelationships of acanthomorph fishes are reviewed and recommend extending the Percomorpha to include the Atherinomorpha (and other smegmamorphs), and argue that this larger group is monophyletic, although this survey does not cover Tetraodontiformes.
