The endemic cyprinid species flock of Lake Lanao, Philippines is a classic example of explosive evolution. [] Key Method We compared results of landing and market surveys conducted in 2008 to information from historical surveys. Field sampling and fishermen interviews provided additional information on the status of the endemic and other fish species in Lake Lanao. Puntius lindog and Puntius tumba were the only two endemic species recorded in 2008, accounting for 0.01 % and 0.04 % respectively of the total…

Genetic diversity among the endemic barb Barbodes tumba (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) populations from Mindanao, Philippines

Despite the high intraand inter-population genetic variation found in the species, its populations need to be protected and managed so that it will not suffer the same fate as that of the other endemic cyprinids which are now reported to be extinct.

DNA barcoding of fishes from Lake Lanao, Philippines

The partial sequence of mitochondrial COI gene was found to be a good DNA barcode for fast and accurate species identification of fishes in Lake Lanao and for tagging species that warrant further taxonomic investigation.

First record of the invasive Arctodiaptomus dorsalis (Marsh, 1907) (Copepoda:Calanoida:Diaptomidae) in Lake Lanao (Mindanao Island, Philippines)

Arctodiaptomus dorsalis, originally described to be distributed within the Americas, has been documented to occupy a significant number of freshwater lakes in the Philippines. This paper reports the

Some Aspects of the Reproductive Biology of Two Freshwater Fish Species, Puntius tumba and Anabas testudineus, of Lake Lanao, Philippines

The breeding-to-maturation periods were predicted to be in September to April for P. tumba and June to October for A. testudineus, and no significant relationships were observed between the GSI to the body and gonad lengths and between fecundity with those of theBody and Gonad lengths which indicate constancy of body length despite periodic variations of fecundities.

Freshwater Fish Assemblages and Water Quality Parameters in Seven Lakes of San Pablo, Laguna, Philippines

An ichthyofaunal survey was conducted to characterize the diversity and abundance of freshwater fish assemblages in Seven Lakes of San Pablo, Laguna, Luzon Island, Philippines. This two-year study

Modern Ichthyofauna of Lake Kezenoi-Am (North Caucasus) and Conservation Measures for Endemic Kezenoi-Am Trout Salmo trutta ezenami

The development of the ecosystem of Lake Kezenoi-Am (Kezenoyam) for the last 100 years is described on the basis of published and original data. The ecosystem of the lake has undergone a catastrophic

Evolution of the Charrs, Genus Salvelinus (Salmonidae). 2. Sympatric Inner-lake Diversification (Ecological Peculiarities and Evolutionary Mechanisms Illustrated by Different Groups of Fish)

To date a considerable amount of data on sympatric diversification of the laсustrine fish has been accumulated and many important advances made. However, the evolutionary mechanisms of the process

State of the Population of Kezenoi-Am Trout (Salmo trutta ezenami Berg, 1948) and the Forecast of the Development of the Ecological Situation in Lake Kezenoi-Am

Abstract The development of the ecosystem of Lake Kezenoi-Am (Eisenam) over the past hundred years is described based on literature data and original materials. The ecosystem underwent a catastrophic

Interaction among morphological, trophic and genetic groups in the rapidly radiating Salvelinus fishes from Lake Kronotskoe

It is found that seven out of eight morphologically independent forms can be distinguished by a stable feeding niche through comparing the stomach content, isotopic status and parasite fauna abundance, and five eco-morphs were found to be genetically independent, while three other morphs fell into one cluster without any significant restriction of the gene flow among the members.

DNA barcoding of Glossogobius species (Teleostei: Gobiidae) from major lakes in the Philippines reveals the presence of cryptic species and species complexes

DNA barcoding lends support to previous studies which showed, based on morphological data, that G. giuris and G. celebius are species complexes, and within-species genetic distances suggest thatG.
