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 classical…
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.
Spatial and temporal variation in settlement and recruitment of the intertidal barnacle Semibalanus balanoides (L.) (Crustacea: Cirripedia) over a European scale
A PHYLOGENY AND A NEW CLASSIFICATION OF THE COROPHIIDEA LEACH, 1814 (AMPHIPODA)
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.

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.
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.
A Phylogeny and Classification of the Amphipoda with the establishment of the new order Ingolfiellida (Crustacea: Peracarida).
A cladistic tree, based on morphology, is presented illustrating the relationships of the Amphipoda at parvorder level.

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.
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.
