  • Molecular biology and evolution
  • 1 July 1997
Advocates of conditional combination have argued that testing for incongruence between data partitions is an important step in data exploration. Unless the partitions have had distinct histories, asExpand

Arthropod relationships revealed by phylogenomic analysis of nuclear protein-coding sequences
The remarkable antiquity, diversity and ecological significance of arthropods have inspired numerous attempts to resolve their deep phylogenetic history, but the results of two decades of intensiveExpand

PHYLOGEOGRAPHY AND HISTORICAL ECOLOGY OF THE NORTH ATLANTIC INTERTIDAL
Abstract Recent glaciation covered the full extent of rocky intertidal habitat along the coasts of New England and the Canadian Maritimes. To test whether this glaciation in fact caused wholesaleExpand

Evolution of king crabs from hermit crab ancestors
KING crabs (Family Lithodidae) are among the world's largest arthropods, having a crab-like morphology and a strongly calcified exoskeleton1–6. The hermit crabs, by contrast, have depended onExpand

Class-level relationships in the phylum Cnidaria: molecular and morphological evidence.
The evolutionary history of cnidarian life cycles has been debated since the 1880s, with different hypotheses favored even by current textbooks. Contributing to the disagreement is the fact that theExpand

DIVERSITY IN THE WEAPONS OF SEXUAL SELECTION: HORN EVOLUTION IN THE BEETLE GENUS ONTHOPHAGUS (COLEOPTERA: SCARABAEIDAE)
Abstract Both ornaments and weapons of sexual selection frequently exhibit prolific interspecific diversity of form. Yet, most studies of this diversity have focused on ornaments involved with femaleExpand

Resolving arthropod phylogeny: exploring phylogenetic signal within 41 kb of protein-coding nuclear gene sequence.
This study attempts to resolve relationships among and within the four basal arthropod lineages (Pancrustacea, Myriapoda, Euchelicerata, Pycnogonida) and to assess the widespread expectation thatExpand

INVITED REVIEW: Local adaptation and species segregation in two mussel (Mytilus edulis × Mytilus trossulus) hybrid zones
Few marine hybrid zones have been studied extensively, the major exception being the hybrid zone between the mussels Mytilus edulis and Mytilus galloprovincialis in southwestern Europe. Here, weExpand
