PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF EMPERORS (LETHRINIDAE) AND SNAPPERS (LUTJANIDAE) IN VIETNAM BASED ON MITOCHONDRIAL DNA SEQUENCES

Fishes of the families Lethrinidae (emperors) and Lutjanidae (snappers) are commercially important in South China Sea. However, in terms of morphology, they can be confused because of a basic “fish-like” shape with large mouths and notched tails. In Vietnam, however, classification system of fish species based primarily on morphological characteristics. Therefore, the number ...
