Molecular phylogenetics of pricklebacks and other percoid fishes from the Sea of Japan
The analysis of the Co-1 gene revealed a monophyletic origin for the representatives of the Stichaeidae, which was the principal percoid family investigated and supported the concept that speciation in the order Perciformes in most cases follows a geographic mode through accumulation of numerous small genetic changes over a long time.
Mitochondrial diversity in Gonionemus (Trachylina:Hydrozoa) and its implications for understanding the origins of clinging jellyfish in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean
Diversity in mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I sequences obtained from multiple Atlantic and Pacific locations are assessed, and a relatively deep divergence is found that may indicate cryptic speciation between Gonionemus from the Northeast Pacific and Northwest Pacific/Northwest Atlantic.
A comparative analysis of the Far Eastern grayling species Thymallus tugarinae and Thymallus grubii flavomaculatus based on the data from mitochondrial DNA cytochrome b gene sequencing
A phylogenetic analysis of four Thymallus species, whose relationships have been poorly studied, was performed on new data obtained from two species of graylings that inhabit the Russian Far East, and indicated that Far Eastern graylings T. tugarinae and T. g.
One new genus and two new free-living deep-sea nematode species with discussion of phylogeny of the family Leptosomatidae Filipjev, 1916
BI and ML phylogenetic analysis based on 18S and 28S rDNA suggest that Leptosomatidae requires transfer from superfamily Ironoidea (suborder Ironina) to superfamily Enoploidea(suborder Enoplina) and Phylogenetic relationships remained unresolved despite of the various sequences analysed in different loci.
Taxonomy of some Boreoheptagyiini Brundin (Diptera: Chironomidae: Diamesinae) from the mountains of Central Asia and the Middle East, with description and DNA barcoding of new taxa.
Chironomids of the tribe Boreoheptagyiini from the mountains of Iran, China and East Kazakhstan are revised using both morphological characters and partial DNA sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene, showing well-supported genetic divergence between all studied taxa.
Shedding light on a cryptic cavernicole: A second species of Zenkevitchia Birstein (Crustacea, Amphipoda, Typhlogammaridae) discovered via molecular techniques
The results showed molecular divergence within the genus Zenkevitchia Birstein, with two distinct groups located in the karstic regions Gudauta-Sukhumi and Gulripshi, respectively, indicating the existence of a new species and the value of inclusion of molecular data in taxonomic studies.
First next-generation sequencing data for Haploporidae (Digenea: Haploporata): characterization of complete mitochondrial genome and ribosomal operon for Parasaccocoelium mugili Zhukov, 1971.
The first data on a whole mitochondrial genome of Haploporidae, Parasaccocoelium mugili, showed that P. mugili was closely related to Paragonimus species from the suborder Xiphidiata and the relationship between mitochondrial protein-coding gene rearrangements and synonymous nucleotide substitutions in mitochondrial genomes has been suggested.
New or little-known species of Chaetocladius s. str. Kieffer, 1911 (Diptera: Chironomidae: Orthocladiinae) from the Amur River basin (Russian Far East).
Chironomids of the subgenus Chaetocladius s. str. from the Amur River basin are revised using both morphological characters and molecular data. Three new species, C. egorych sp. nov., C. lopatinskiy
New data on taxonomy and systematics of the genus Diamesa Meigen (Diptera: Chironomidae: Diamesinae) from Tien Shan and Pamir Mountains, with description of two new species
An illustrated morphological description of two new species of the genus Diamesa Meigen, 1835 are provided from Tien Shan and Pamir mountains: D. akhrorovi sp. nov., as male adult; D. alibaevae sp.
Genetic Evidence for a Mixed Composition of the Genus Myoxocephalus (Cottoidei: Cottidae) Necessitates Generic Realignment
The results of the present study resolve the relationships within a complex group of sculpin fishes and show a promising approach to phylogenetic systematics for a better understanding of the taxonomy and evolution of fishes and for supplying relevant information to address various fish biodiversity conservation and management issues.
