The biogeography of tropical reef fishes: endemism and provinciality through time

March 13, 2017

A new Biological Reviews paper co-authored by former YIBS Donnelley Fellow Dr. Peter Cowman uses both phylogenetic and biogeographic data for coral reef fishes to examine the origins of coral reef fish biodiversity across the tropics. The study uses this framework to highlight the assemblage structure and tropical provinciality of reef fishes.
