Research themes in the team


Our team is trying to reconstruct the phylogenetic relationships among species, and ameliorate the classifications of the group.  We compare different species through their morpho-anatomy, chromosome comparison, and DNA sequence analyses.

We work at three different levels:

  • large scale: acanthomorph fishes inter familial relationships (more than 311 families)
  • medium scale: relationships among flatfishes (Pleuronectiformes) or Serraniformes (groupers, perches, sticklebacks, icefishes...)
  • small scale: relationships within families and genera in antarctic teleosts like notothenioids, liparids (snailfishes), and zoarcids (eelpouts).
