Observations on the tolerance of high temperatures and low dissolved oxygen in natural water by Crenichthys
In this study we continued investigation of pelvic reduction in empetricthyine fishes (Goodeidae) by sequencing an approximately 800 bp region from Crenichthys
baileyi and an approximately 300 bp region from Empetricthyes latos using standard molecular techniques.
These primers were used in various combinations to PCR-amplify products from empetrichthyines Crenichthys
baileyi and Empetrichthys latos, and pelvic fin-possessing goodeines Chapalichthys pardalis and Goodea atripinnis (controls).
