INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF FRESHWATER PEARL MUSSELS (BIVALVIA: MARGARITIFERIDAE) BASED ON MOLECULAR DATA: IMPLICATIONS FOR THEIR TAXONOMY AND BIOGEOGRAPHY
The phylogenetic relationships among selected members of the family Margaritiferidae are investigated using sequence data from five molecular markers. Parsimony analyses of the data support theExpand

Phylogeny and biogeography of midwife toads (Alytes, Discoglossidae): a reappraisal
The allozyme data base of Arntzen & Garcia-Paris (1995) on midwife toads (Alytes, Discoglossidae) is reanalysed considering each locus as a discrete character. The phylogeny thus inferred differsExpand
