- Evolution of trophic types in emperor fishes ( Lethrinus, Lethrinidae, Percoidei) based on cytochrome B gene sequence variationAlicia M Lo Galbo
Department of Biological Sciences, Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA 23529, USA
J Mol Evol 54:754-62. 2002..We hypothesize that this generalist trophic type was the evolutionary precursor to both of the other primary trophic types...
- Swim bladder and posterior lateral line nerve of the nurseryfish, Kurtus gulliveri (Perciformes: Kurtidae)Kent E Carpenter
Department of Biological Sciences, Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Virginia 23529 0266, USA
J Morphol 260:193-200. 2004..This nerve is not, however, associated with a lateral line canal and a lateral line canal is absent on most of the body. We hypothesize that the posterior lateral line nerve transmits mechanosensory information from the swim bladder...
- One-third of reef-building corals face elevated extinction risk from climate change and local impactsKent E Carpenter
IUCN International Union for Conservation of Nature Species Programme Species Survival Commission SSC, Biological Sciences, Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA 23529, USA
Science 321:560-3. 2008..Our results emphasize the widespread plight of coral reefs and the urgent need to enact conservation measures...
- The loss of species: mangrove extinction risk and geographic areas of global concernBeth A Polidoro
IUCN Species Programme SSC Conservation International Global Marine Species Assessment, Biological Sciences, Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Virginia, United States of America
PLoS ONE 5:e10095. 2010..Several species at high risk of extinction may disappear well before the next decade if existing protective measures are not enforced...

- Molecular systematics of the Jacks (Perciformes: Carangidae) based on mitochondrial cytochrome b sequences using parsimony, likelihood, and Bayesian approachesDavid L Reed
Department of Biological Sciences and Museum of Natural Science, 119 Foster Hall, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge 70803, USA
Mol Phylogenet Evol 23:513-24. 2002..The Bayesian analysis was computationally much faster and yet produced phylogenetic hypotheses that were very similar to those of the maximum-likelihood analysis...
- A phylogeny of the fish family Sparidae (porgies) inferred from mitochondrial sequence dataThomas M Orrell
NOAA NMFS Systematics Laboratory, Smithsonian Institution, NHB MRC 153, P O Box 37012, Washington, DC 20013 7012, USA
Mol Phylogenet Evol 32:425-34. 2004..This suggests that dentition and feeding modes, upon which these subfamilies are based, were independently derived multiple times within sparid fishes. There was no evidence from the 16S or combined analyses for a monophyletic Sparoidea...
