Distribution and biogeography of the recent Haliotidae (Gastropoda: Vetigastropoda) world-wide
- D. Geiger
- Environmental Science
The area cladogram, which treats the distribution of the individual species as characters and the areas as taxa, is in general agreement with an unrooted phylogenetic tree of the taxa for which the geographic occurrence is superimposed.
Evolution in temperate and tropical seas: disparate patterns in southern hemisphere abalone (Mollusca: Vetigastropoda: Haliotidae).
Monograph of the Little Slit Shells
These two volumes are the culmination of 12 years of research and collecting to critically assess and document the world-wide biodiversity of the little slit shells or scissurellids. Some 9,800 lots…
A TOTAL EVIDENCE CLADISTIC ANALYSIS OF THE HALIOTIDAE (GASTROPODA: VETIGASTROPODA)
- D. Geiger
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY AND THE GEOGRAPHIC ORIGIN OF HALIOTIDAE TRACED BY HAEMOCYANIN SEQUENCES
Two genetically different monophyletic groups with high bootstrap support are distinguished: the abalones from Europe, South Africa, Australia, Taiwan and Japan group together and are separated from (ii) five California and two Japanese ab alones.
Molecular phylogeny of Vetigastropoda reveals non-monophyletic Scissurellidae , Trochoidea , and Fissurelloidea
A molecular phylogeny using cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1, Histone H3, and 18S rRNA, comprising 3038 aligned characters, was developed for 38 ingroup vetigastropods and two neritimorph outgroups, supporting the monophyly of Fissurellidae, Haliotidae, Lepetodrilidae, Pleurotomariidae, and Peltospiridae.
REVIEW OF FOSSIL ABALONE (GASTROPODA: VETIGASTROPODA: HALIOTIDAE) WITH COMPARISON TO RECENT SPECIES
Fossil and Recent abalone both apparently lived in the shallow, rocky sublittoral in tropical and temperate climates, and no on-shore/off-shore pattern is detected.
New genera and species having the Fissurisepta shell form, with a generic-level phylogenetic analysis (Gastropoda: Fissurellidae)
The Fissurisepta group is characterized by six genera having an interior septum and an apical or subapical foramen, and these characters are defined characters of shell sculpture, shell profile, radula, generula, previously described by Altrix pacifica.
Techniques for collecting, handling, preparing, storing and examining small molluscan specimens
Recent genera and species of the family Haliotidae Rafinesque, 1815 (Gastropoda : Vetigastropoda)
- D. Geiger
This dissertation evaluates the evolutionary history of the marine gastropod family Haliotidae, part of the clade Vetigastropoda, with an evolutionary history reaching at least to the Upper Cretaceous, with some fossil representatives known from many regions of the world.
