Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A phylogenetic analysis of DNA sequences sampled from multiple nuclear genes that include representative taxa from Albula, Pterothrissus, Notacanthiformes and Anguilliformes is provided, and integration of fossil lineages into a Bayesian time calibrated framework provides divergence time estimates for the clade that are consistent with previously published age estimates.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The phylogenetic relationships of † Paraelops cearensis, an elopomorph fish from the Lower Cretaceous of Brazil, are reviewed based on new complete and informative specimens and Elopomorpha appears as a clade supported by a single synapomorphy.

TL;DR: Fish remains are abundant in many strata of the Lower Cretaceous (Berriasian-early Aptian) Wealden Supergroup of southern England (Fig. 1A) as mentioned in this paper.
Abstract: Fish remains are abundant in many strata of the Lower Cretaceous (Berriasian–early Aptian) Wealden Supergroup of southern England (Fig. 1A). They are particularly abundant in the ‘bone beds’ of the...

TL;DR: There is a relationship between the distributional patterns of biota and events such as the break-up of Gondwana, the formation of Atlantic Ocean and eustatic movements that affected South America and Africa.
Abstract: The Aptian-Albian paleoichthyofauna in Brazil and Africa is quite diverse, yet their geographic patterns still require accounts. This work consists of a panbiogeographical analysis of paleoichthyofauna from Aptian-Albian through track analysis. Geographic coordinates were obtained and converted into paleocoordinates. Individual Tracks (ITs) and Generalized Tracks (GTs) were built with the aid of ArcView GIS v3.2 program using Trazos2004 extension. As a result, four GTs and tree Biogeographic Nodes (A, B and C) had been identified. GTs 1 and 2 shows two different faunas. GT3 indicates similarity between Brazil and Africa paleoichthyofauna suggesting the break-up of Gondwana as the event that separated it. GT4 represents a probable local seaway produced by transgressions. In the Node A a unique fauna was found indicating the presence of a third biota with its own characteristics. Node B is associated with the break-up of the supercontinent Gondwana. Node C was related to fauna exchange promoted by marine ingression and epicontinental seas that occurred during Aptian-Albian. We concluded that there is a relationship between the distributional patterns of biota and events such as the break-up of Gondwana, the formation of Atlantic Ocean and eustatic movements that affected South America and Africa.
