Geological dates and molecular rates: fish DNA sheds light on time dependency.
Knowledge of DNA evolution is central to our understanding of biological history, but how fast does DNA change? Previously, pedigree and ancient DNA studies--focusing on evolution in the shortExpand

Marine dispersal as a pre‐requisite for Gondwanan vicariance among elements of the galaxiid fish fauna
ABSTRACTAim The aim of this study was to determine the contributions of Gondwananvicariance and marine dispersal to the contemporary distribution of galaxiidfishes. This group has been central inExpand

Complete Mitochondrial DNA Sequences of the Decapod Crustaceans Pseudocarcinus gigas (Menippidae) and Macrobrachium rosenbergii (Palaemonidae)
The complete mitochondrial DNA sequence was determined for the Australian giant crab Pseudocarcinns gigas (Crustacea: Decapoda: Menippidae) and the giant freshwater shrimp Macrobrachium rosenbergiiExpand

Molecular phylogeny and zoogeography of the freshwater crayfish genus Cherax Erichson (Decapoda: Parastacidae) in Australia
The evolutionary history and biogeography of freshwater-dependent taxa in Australia is of intrinsic interest given the present-day aridity of this continent. Cherax is the most widespread and one ofExpand

Geological dates and molecular rates: rapid divergence of rivers and their biotas.
We highlight a novel molecular clock calibration system based on geologically dated river reversal and river capture events. Changes in drainage pattern may effect vicariant isolation of freshwaterExpand

Complete mitochondrial DNA sequence of the Australian freshwater crayfish, Cherax destructor (Crustacea: Decapoda: Parastacidae): a novel gene order revealed.
The complete mitochondrial DNA sequence was determined for the Australian freshwater crayfish Cherax destructor (Crustacea: Decapoda: Parastacidae). The 15,895-bp genome is circular with the sameExpand

Gene trees versus species trees: reassessing life-history evolution in a freshwater fish radiation.
Mechanisms of speciation are best understood in the context of phylogenetic relationships and as such have often been inferred from single gene trees, typically those derived from mitochondrial DNAExpand

Late Quaternary river drainage and fish evolution, Southland, New Zealand
Late Quaternary to Holocene landscape evolution in southern New Zealand was dominated by glacial outwash processes. Evolution of the drainage network on a regional scale was punctuated by numerousExpand

The systematics of freshwater crayfish of the genus Cherax Erichson (Decapoda : Parastacidae) in eastern Australia re-examined using nucleotide sequences from 12S rRNA and 16S rRNA genes
Nucleotide sequence data were used to re-examine systematic relationships and species boundaries within the genus Cherax from eastern Australia. Partial sequences were amplified from the 12S (~365Expand
