Continental-wide distribution of crayfish species in Europe: update and maps
Recently published astacological studies substantially improved available data on distribution of crayfish in various European regions. At the same time, spread of invasive species has been recorded,Expand

The scale of divergence: a phylogenetic appraisal of intercontinental allopatric speciation in a passively dispersed freshwater zooplankton genus.
Molecular studies have enlightened our understanding of freshwater zooplankton biogeography, yet questions remain regarding the scale and commonality of geographic speciation. Here, we present aExpand

Global diversity of cladocerans (Cladocera; Crustacea) in freshwater
Cladocera is a primarily-freshwater monophyletic group, an important component of the microcrustacean zooplankton. They inhabit most types of continental fresh and saline water habitats, occurringExpand

Invasive crayfish and crayfish plague on the move: first detection of the plague agent Aphanomyces astaci in the Romanian Danube.
Native European crayfish, such as Astacus leptodactylus, are threatened, among other factors, by the crayfish plague agent Aphanomyces astaci, dispersed by invasive North American crayfish. Two ofExpand

A taxonomic reappraisal of the European Daphnia longispina complex (Crustacea, Cladocera, Anomopoda)
The Daphnia longispina complex contains some of the most common water flea species in the northern hemisphere, and has been a model organism for many ecological and evolutionary studies.Expand

PCR detection of the crayfish plague pathogen in narrow-clawed crayfish inhabiting Lake Eğirdir in Turkey.
Many populations of the narrow-clawed crayfish Astacus leptodactylus in Turkey, including those inhabiting Lake Eğirdir, declined drastically in the mid-1980s due to introduction of crayfish plagueExpand

The genetic legacy of polyploid Bolivian Daphnia: the tropical Andes as a source for the North and South American D. pulicaria complex.
We investigated genetic variation in asexual polyploid members of the water flea Daphnia pulex complex from a set of 12 Bolivian high-altitude lakes. We used nuclear microsatellite markers to studyExpand

The crayfish plague pathogen can infect freshwater-inhabiting crabs
SUMMARY 1. The oomycete Aphanomyces astaci is generally considered a parasite specific to freshwater crayfish, and it has become known as the crayfish plague pathogen. Old experimental work thatExpand

Contribution of cyclic parthenogenesis and colonization history to population structure in Daphnia.
Cyclic parthenogenesis, the alternation of parthenogenetic and sexual reproduction, can lead to a wide scope of population structures, ranging from almost monoclonal to genetically highly diverseExpand
