Mitochondrial DNA from Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (Hemiptera: Adelgidae) Suggests Cryptic Speciation and Pinpoints the Source of the Introduction to Eastern North America
Phylogenetic analyses suggest that the source of A. tsugae in eastern North America was likely a population of adelgids in southern Japan, and there is no conclusive evidence for a recent introduction of the pest into western North America, where multiple haplotypes are found.
Phylogeography and molecular rates of subterranean aquatic Stenasellid Isopods with a peri‐Tyrrhenian distribution
The molecular data suggest that a combination of vicariance and dispersal events explain most effectively the present distribution pattern of these organisms.
Outdoor host seeking behaviour of Anopheles gambiae mosquitoes following initiation of malaria vector control on Bioko Island, Equatorial Guinea
It is proposed that the long term indoor application of insecticides may have resulted in an adaptive shift toward outdoor host seeking in An.

This study focuses on phylogenetic relationships in two distinct species assemblages of cave‐dwelling beetles with similar disjunct distributions in the Pyrenees and Sardinia, which are believed to reflect different degrees of adaptation to cave life.

The overall picture shows that the emergence and spread of kdr alleles in An.
Mitochondrial DNA rates and biogeography in European newts (genus Euproctus).
The data suggest that the cladogenic events leading to species formation in Euproctus and Triturus occurred very closely in time, indicating that the two genera may not be monophyletic.
An analysis of species boundaries and biogeographic patterns in a cryptic species complex: the rotifer--Brachionus plicatilis.

The last common ancestor of Triturus existed around 64 million years ago while the root of the Salamandridae dates back to 95 mya, which was estimated using a fossil-based molecular dating approach and an explicit framework to select calibration points that least underestimated their corresponding nodes.

Results confirmed African ancestry of the species, and supported a single subspeciation event leading to the pantropical domestic form, and genetic data strongly supported the hypothesis that human trade routes first moved domestic Ae.

The results of this study demonstrate greater phylogeographic structure than has been found across Amazon basin S. macrophylla, suggesting a relatively complex Mesoamerican biogeographic history and lead to the prediction that other Central American trees will show similar patterns of regional differentiation.
