The long way to diversity--phylogeny and evolution of the Heterobranchia (Mollusca: Gastropoda).
Heterobranchia are one of the most species rich groups within Gastropoda, with poorly resolved phylogenetic relationships especially in basal taxa. In order to resolve phylogenetic relationshipsExpand

From sea to land and beyond – New insights into the evolution of euthyneuran Gastropoda (Mollusca)
BackgroundThe Euthyneura are considered to be the most successful and diverse group of Gastropoda. Phylogenetically, they are riven with controversy. Previous morphology-based phylogenetic studiesExpand

Systematic position of the pelagic Thecosomata and Gymnosomata within Opisthobranchia (Mollusca, Gastropoda) – revival of the Pteropoda
The complete 18S (SSU) rRNA as well partial 28S (LSU) rRNA and partial mitochondrial COI sequences have been used to reconstruct the phylogenetic relationships within Opisthobranchia with specialExpand

New insights into the phylogeny of the Pyramidellidae (Gastropoda)
The phylogeny of the marine ectoparasitic gastropod family Pyramidellidae and its systematic placement have been a matter of debate for over a century. We employed nuclear (18S rDNA þ 28S rDNA) andExpand

Utility of H3-genesequences for phylogenetic reconstruction - a case study of heterobranch Gastropoda
In the present study we assessed the utility of H3-Genesequences for phylogenetic reconstruction of the He- terobranchia (Mollusca, Gastropoda). Therefore histone H3 data were collected for 49Expand
