Abstract Here we present a mitogenomic perspective on the evolution of sharks and rays, being a first glance on the complete mitochondrial history of such an old and diversified group of vertebrates. The Elasmobranchii is a diverse subclass of Chondrichthyes, or cartilaginous fish, with about 1200 species of ocean- and freshwater-dwelling fishes spread all over the world’s seas, including some of the ocean’s largest fishes. The group dates back about 400 million years near the Devonian–Silurian… Expand
Molecular Taxonomy and Diversification of Atlantic Skates (Chondrichthyes, Rajiformes): Adding More Pieces to the Puzzle of Their Evolutionary History
TLDR
These data successfully resolved many taxonomic ambiguities, identified cryptic diversity within valid species and demonstrated a highly cohesive monophyletic clustering among the order, laying the background for further inference of evolutionary patterns suitable for addressing management and conservation issues. Expand
Nuclear phylogenomics, but not mitogenomics, resolves the most successful Late Miocene radiation of African mammals (Rodentia: Muridae: Arvicanthini).
TLDR
The results suggest that the African radiation started early after the colonization of Africa by a single arvicanthine ancestor from Asia during the Messinian stage, and was likely linked with a fragmentation of the pan-African Miocene forest. Expand
Complete Mitochondrial DNA Genome of Nine Species of Sharks and Rays and Their Phylogenetic Placement among Modern Elasmobranchs
TLDR
The present study expands the knowledge on the systematics, genetic differentiation, and conservation genetics of the species studied, and contributes to the understanding of the evolutionary history of Chondrichthyes. Expand
Evolutionary trends of the conserved neurocranium shape in angel sharks (Squatiniformes, Elasmobranchii)
TLDR
It is suggested that the morphological integration and biogeographic processes are the main drivers of their diversity, which might limit their capacity to display higher disparities since their origin. Expand
Skeletal Anatomy of the Bigeye Sand Tiger Shark, Odontaspis noronhai (Lamniformes: Odontaspididae), and Its Implications for Lamniform Phylogeny, Taxonomy, and Conservation Biology
TLDR
The phylogenetic study strongly suggests non-monophyly of Odontaspididae, that traditionally consisted of C Archarias taurus, O. ferox, and O. noronhai, and the family Carchariidae is formally resurrected for the genus C archarias to separate it from the family Odontasididae sensu stricto for Odontspis. Expand
Holocephalocotyle monstrosae n. gen. n. sp. (Monogenea, Monocotylidae) from the olfactory rosette of the rabbit fish, Chimaera monstrosa (Holocephali, Chimaeridae) in deep waters off Algeria
TLDR
A phylogenetic tree constructed from available monocotylid sequences showed that Holocephalocotyle monstrosae was included, and basal, in a robust group including species of Merizocotyles, Mycteronastes and Empruthotrema, confirming that the species is a member of the MerizOCotylinae. Expand
Comparative mitogenomics of the Decapoda reveals evolutionary heterogeneity in architecture and composition
TLDR
Predicted scenarios of rearrangements show some MGOs to be informative synapomorphies for some taxonomic groups providing strong independent support for phylogenetic relationships, and several clade-specific trends that are of evolutionary and ecological interest are indicated. Expand
Growth trajectories of prenatal embryos of the deep‐sea shark Chlamydoselachus anguineus (Chondrichthyes)
TLDR
The growth pattern of stages 32 and 33 indicate a shift in head shape, thus highlighting the moment in development when the jaws start to elongate anteriorly to finally achieve the adult condition of terminal mouth opening rather than retaining the early embryonic subterminal position as it is typical for sharks. Expand
Body forms in sharks (Chondrichthyes: Elasmobranchii) and their functional, ecological, and evolutionary implications.
TLDR
It is found that swimming modes in sharks are highly correlated with body forms where Group A sharks are predominantly anguilliform swimmers and Group B sharks are represented by carangiform and thunniform sw Swim patterns are found to be benthic whereas pelagic forms are relatively common among Group B Sharks.

Mitogenomics of electric rays: evolutionary considerations within Torpediniformes (Batoidea; Chondrichthyes)
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses support the hypothesis that electric rays are closely related to thornback rays (Platyrhinidae), forming a clade in a sister position to a group containing the remaining three batoid orders. Expand
Phylogeny of elasmobranchs based on LSU and SSU ribosomal RNA genes.
TLDR
Several different molecular studies now refute the Hypnosqualea hypothesis of elasmobranch interrelationships, and are consistent with the idea that "orbitostylic" sharks form a monophyletic group. Expand
Shark tales: a molecular species-level phylogeny of sharks (Selachimorpha, Chondrichthyes).
TLDR
The results offer the most detailed species-level phylogeny of sharks to date and a tool for comparative analyses and suggest that the genus Echinorhinus is not a squaliform, but rather related to the saw sharks, a hypothesis that might be supported by both groups sharing 'spiny' snouts. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships among the Major Lineages of Modern Elasmobranchs
TLDR
A phylogenetic tree based on DNA sequence comparisons for the C H A P T E R 1 is established to establish an even, balanced and representative coverage of the evolutionary trajectory of the vertebrate evolutionary tree. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics of gnathostomous (jawed) fishes: old bones, new cartilage
TLDR
The findings suggest that the cartilage characterizing extant chondrichthyans is a retention of an embryonic condition, thus representing a derived rather than a primitive phylogenetic and developmental stage, and put into question the phylogenetic validity of the taxonomic nomenclature attributed to various vertebrate, notably piscine, clades. Expand
Molecular phylogenetic evidence refuting the hypothesis of Batoidea (rays and skates) as derived sharks.
TLDR
The phylogenetic placement of batoids as a basal elasmobranch lineage means that much of the current thinking regarding the evolution of morphological and life history characteristics in elasmOBranchs needs to be re-evaluated. Expand
A recent shark radiation: molecular phylogeny, biogeography and speciation of wobbegong sharks (family: Orectolobidae).
TLDR
It is proposed that the onset of diversification of orectolobid sharks is of Miocene age and occurred within the Indo-Australian region, and surprisingly, there is evidence for a recent and rapid radiation of wobbegong sharks. Expand
Ribosomal RNA genes and deuterostome phylogeny revisited: more cyclostomes, elasmobranchs, reptiles, and a brittle star.
TLDR
The rRNA data still fail to resolve the relations among the major groups of deuterostomes and of gnathostomes (chondrichthyans, lungfishes, coelacanth, actinopterygians, amphibians, and amniotes), partly because tunicates and lungf fishes are rogue taxa that disrupt the tree. Expand
Molecular Phylogeny of the Sharks and Rays of Superorder Squalea Based on Mitochondrial Cytochrome b Gene
TLDR
The molecular phylogenetic tree established from the deduced cytochrome b amino acid sequences provides strong evidence for the dichotomous classifica tion of sharks and rays within Squalea. Expand
Evolutionary Relations of Hexanchiformes Deep-Sea Sharks Elucidated by Whole Mitochondrial Genome Sequences
TLDR
The phylogeny suggested that Hexanchiformes is in the superorder Squalomorphi, Chlamydoselachus anguineus (frilled shark) is the sister species to all other Hexanchiales, and the relations within Hex Anchiformes are well resolved. Expand
