Analytical Biogeography: An Integrated Approach to the Study of Animal and Plant Distributions
Biogeography may be defined simply as the study of the geographical distribution of organisms, but this simple defmition hides the great complexity of the subject. Biogeography transcends classicalExpand
A phylogeny and classification of the Senticaudata subord. nov. Crustacea: Amphipoda).
The Amphipoda includes a large clade defined by the presence of a previously unrecognised synapomorphy, apical robust setae on the rami of uropods 1-2, which is introduced for the first time in am-phipod classification, the level parvorder between infraorder and superfamily. Expand
Spatial and temporal variation in settlement and recruitment of the intertidal barnacle Semibalanus balanoides (L.) (Crustacea: Cirripedia) over a European scale
Estimates of total settlement throughout the settlement period and of recruitment at the end of this period both showed substantial variation among locations which was dependent on the year of study, and locations showed distinct differences in the level of post-settlement survival. Expand
A phylogenetic analysis of 104 genera and 156 species of corophiidean amphipods presents a new phylogeny and higher-level classification for the suborder Corophiides, which divides the coroph iideans into two infraorders, theCorophiida and the Caprellida, based on a hypothesis of the evolution of different feeding strategies.

Shallow-water, coral reef and mangrove Amphipoda (Gammaridea) of Fiji
Fiji is characterised by a higher percentage of domicolo~ls forms than any other well studied island group and Forty percent of Fijian taxa are new to science but this figure will undoubtedly be lowered when more Indo-Pacific island groups are explored. Expand
A Phylogeny and a New Classification of the Corophiidea (Amphipoda)
A phylogeny divides the corophiideans into two infraorders, the Corophiida and the Caprellida, based on a hypothesis of the evolution of different feeding strategies, and a new phylogeny and higher-level classification is presented for the suborder Corphiidea Leach, 1814. Expand
Using historical data to detect temporal changes in the abundances of intertidal species on Irish shores
Comparison of the ACFOR data over a 45-year period, between the historical survey and re-survey, showed statistically significant changes in the abundances of 12 of the 27 species examined, three of which fell within the margin of operator error. Expand
Benthic Amphipoda (Crustacea: Peracarida) of the Great Barrier Reef Australia
The fossil record of the Bamarooka tropicalis and its relationship to the rest of the world is sparse, but the fossil records of its relatives, the Ampeliscidae, are rich in detail. Expand
Recruitment, immigration and population structure of two coexisting limpet species in mid-shore tidepools, on the West Coast of Ireland
It is suggested that while P. ulyssiponensis remains in the pools, P. vulgata uses this microhabitat solely as a nursery ground, migrating from the pools as the animals increase in size, to give the observed pattern in population structure. Expand
Amphipoda from the South Pacific: Tonga
Thirty-two species of gammaridean Amphipoda are recorded from Tongatapu, Tonga. Five species are new to the Vanuatu-Tonga island arc, and these are figured, along with four other species. Seventy-twoExpand
