Molecular phylogeny of eastern Pacific sea cucumbers (Echinodermata: Holothuroidea) based on mitochondrial DNA sequence.
A molecular phylogenetic analysis of some Holothuroidea was undertaken in order to clarify the systematics and taxonomy of this class in the northeast Pacific. DNA sequence for portions of twoExpand

Complete mitochondrial genome DNA sequence for two ophiuroids and a holothuroid: the utility of protein gene sequence and gene maps in the analyses of deep deuterostome phylogeny.
The complete mitochondrial genome sequences have been determined for the holothuroid Cucumaria miniata and two ophiuroid species Ophiopholis aculeata and Ophiura lütkeni. In addition, the nucleotideExpand

Estimating population structure under nonequilibrium conditions in a conservation context: continent‐wide population genetics of the giant Amazon river turtle, Podocnemis expansa (Chelonia;
Giant Amazon river turtles, Podocnemis expansa, are indigenous to the Amazon, Orinoco, and Essequibo River basins, and are distributed across nearly the entire width of the South American continent.Expand

The phylogeny of echinoderm classes based on mitochondrial gene arrangements
SummaryPrevious analyses have demonstrated that, among the echinoderms, the sea star (class: Asteroidea) mitochondrial genome contains a large inversion in comparison to the mitochondrial DNA of seaExpand

Re-examination of the historical range of the greater prairie chicken using provenance data and DNA analysis of museum collections
The extent to which a species has declined within its historical range is commonly used as an important criterion in categorizing the conservation status of wild populations. The greater prairieExpand

Impact of rifting and hydrography on the genetic structure of Clarias gariepinus in Eastern Africa
In a study of the genetic structure of Clarias gariepinus at the ND5 and ND6 loci of mitochondrial DNA using RFLP-PCR in 16 populations (267 fish), a total of 18 haplotypes was detected. The mostExpand

Roman trade relationships at Sagalassos (Turkey) elucidated by ancient DNA of fish remains
The excavations of Roman and Early Byzantine contexts at the town of Sagalassos (Turkey) yielded fish remains belonging to species that do not occur near the site. The modern geographicalExpand
