REVISION OF THE AMERICAN CALLIANASSIDAE (CRUSTACEA: DECAPODA: THALASSINIDEA)
TLDR
This study began as an attempt to con- heterogeneous assemblage of taxa that did not reflect major differences in morphology American callianassids by examining po- and biology in its members by examining their members.
A Classification of Living and Fossil Genera of Decapod Crustaceans
TLDR
This compilation is the first comprehensive estimate of taxonomic diversity within the entire Decapoda, listing all known families and genera organized by higher taxonomic groups and including estimates of the number of species in every genus.
A comprehensive and integrative reconstruction of evolutionary history for Anomura (Crustacea: Decapoda)
TLDR
This work reconstructs the evolutionary history—phylogeny, divergence times, character evolution and diversification— of this speciose clade of Anomura, and suggests that the acquisition of a crab-like form did not act as a key innovation.
Ecological and economic implications of a tropical jellyfish invader in the Gulf of Mexico
A large population of a previously unreported jellyfish occurred across the northern Gulf of Mexico (USA) from May through September of 2000. The jellyfish, identified as Phyllorhiza punctata by von
The Decapod Tree of Life: Compiling the Data and Moving toward a Consensus of Decapod Evolution
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny for the order Decapoda is presented, combining nuclear and mitochondrial sequences, to investigate relationships among nine pleocyemate infraorders, one dendrobranchiate superfamily, 56 families, 113 genera, and 128 species, and discusses current and new hypotheses of decapod relationships.
Phylogeny of the Infraorder Caridea Based on Mitochondrial and Nuclear Genes (Crustacea: Decapoda)
TLDR
The first comprehensive molecular phylogeny of the infraorder Caridea is presented, combining nuclear and mitochondrial gene sequences, to evaluate the relationships among 14 superfamilies and 30 families and suggests polyphyletic and paraphyletic relationships among genera within the families Atyidae, Pasiphaeidae, Oplophoridae, Hippolytidae, Gnathophyllidae, and Palaemonidae.
GLYPTOGRAPSIDAE, A NEW BRACHYURAN FAMILY FROM CENTRAL AMERICA: LARVAL AND ADULT MORPHOLOGY, AND A MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF THE GRAPSOIDEA
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny of the Grapsoidea, based on 16S mtDNA and including type genera of the five recognized families, confirms that the species of Glyptograpsus and Platychirograpsu together form a well-defined monophyletic unit that is distinct from all other taxa within the Grapevine.
Molecular phylogenetics and taxonomic reanalysis of the family Mithracidae MacLeay (Decapoda : Brachyura : Majoidea)
TLDR
A combined molecular dataset of two nuclear and three mitochondrial genes was used to build a preliminary molecular phylogeny of Majoidea in order to examine the membership of Mithracidae and four genera are designated under new or resurrected names on the basis of molecular and morphological characters.
The emergence of lobsters: phylogenetic relationships, morphological evolution and divergence time comparisons of an ancient group (decapoda: achelata, astacidea, glypheidea, polychelida).
TLDR
This study estimated phylogenetic relationships among the major groups of all lobster families and 94% of the genera using six genes (mitochondrial and nuclear) and 195 morphological characters across 173 species of lobsters for the most comprehensive sampling to date.
Ecological and economic implications of a tropical jellyfish invader in the Gulf of Mexico
TLDR
A large population of a previously unreported jellyfish occurred across the northern Gulf of Mexico (USA) from May through September of 2000 and perhaps contributed to millions of dollars in economic losses.
