Refugia within Refugia: Patterns of Phylogeographic Concordance in the Iberian Peninsula
The Iberian Peninsula was one of the most important Pleistocene glacial refugia in Europe. A number of recent studies have documented the phylogeography of Iberian taxa and their relationship to moreExpand

Age of cichlids: new dates for ancient lake fish radiations.
Timing divergence events allow us to infer the conditions under which biodiversity has evolved and gain important insights into the mechanisms driving evolution. Cichlid fishes are a model system forExpand

SPECIATION IN ANCIENT CRYPTIC SPECIES COMPLEXES: EVIDENCE FROM THE MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF BRACHIONUS PLICATILIS (ROTIFERA)
Continental lake-dwelling zooplanktonic organisms have long been considered cosmopolitan species with little geographic variation in spite of the isolation of their habitats. Evidence ofExpand

Phylogeography and regional endemism of a passively dispersing zooplankter: mitochondrial DNA variation in rotifer resting egg banks
We investigated the phylogeography of the salt water rotifer Brachionus plicatilis, a cyclical parthenogen with passive dispersal mechanisms, using resting eggs recovered from saline lake sediments.Expand

Mitochondrial DNA variable number tandem repeats (VNTRs): utility and problems in molecular ecology
Analysis of mitochondrial (mt)DNA size polymorphism in the form of variable number tandem repeats (mtVNTRs) has become an increasingly popular methodology for addressing questions in molecularExpand

An extant cichlid fish radiation emerged in an extinct Pleistocene lake
The haplochromine cichlid fish of the East African Great Lakes represent some of the fastest and most species-rich adaptive radiations known, but rivers in most of Africa accommodate only a fewExpand

The interplay between colonization history and gene flow in passively dispersing zooplankton: microsatellite analysis of rotifer resting egg banks
Zooplanktonic organisms that disperse passively as diapausing eggs often exhibit surprisingly strong population subdivision given their high colonization ability. Here we attempt to disentangle theExpand

Repeated colonization and hybridization in Lake Malawi cichlids
Summary Through adaptive radiation, ancestral species rapidly diversify into multiple species with different ecological adaptations. The haplochromine cichlid fishes of the East African Great LakesExpand

Global isolation by distance despite strong regional phylogeography in a small metazoan
BackgroundSmall vagile eukaryotic organisms, which comprise a large proportion of the Earth's biodiversity, have traditionally been thought to lack the extent of population structuring and geographicExpand
