Molecular identification, phylogeny and geographic distribution of Brazilian mangrove oysters (Crassostrea)
Oysters (Ostreidae) manifest a high degree of phenotypic plasticity, whereby morphology is of limited value for species identification and taxonomy. By using molecular data, the aim was toExpand

Molecular Phylogeny of Mangrove Oysters (Crassostrea) from Brazil
As a result of phenotypic plasticity, the cupped oysters (Crassostrea ) are difficult to identify by means of their morphology. However, molecular DNA markers are a useful means of discriminatingExpand

Taxonomic implications of molecular studies on Northern Brazilian Teredinidae (Mollusca: Bivalvia) specimens
The current taxonomy of the Teredinidae (shipworms) is wholly based on morphology and up to now no molecular studies of the phylogeny of this group have been published. In the present study theExpand
