Three fishes in one: Cryptic species in an Amazonian floodplain forest specialist

Piggott, Maxine; Chao, Ning L.; Beheregaray, Luciano B.


Accurately describing biodiversity in tropical regions such as Amazonia is difficult because of insufficient morphological inventories and the lack of studies on the distribution of genetic diversity. Aquatic organisms from Amazonian flooded forests are generally expected to move laterally along the forests during the annual inundation cycle, a behaviour that should promote admixture of populations and reduce within-drainage speciation. We used an unprecedented fine-scale sampling effort and...[Show more]
