SequenceMatrix: concatenation software for the fast assembly of multi‐gene datasets with character set and codon information
We present SequenceMatrix, software that is designed to facilitate the assembly and analysis of multi‐gene datasets. Genes are concatenated by dragging and dropping FASTA, NEXUS, or TNT files with…
Cryptic species as a window on diversity and conservation.
Biogeography of the Indo-Australian Archipelago
The conservation significance of the IAA is discussed and the need for cross-taxon comparative studies using newly developed analytical approaches well suited to the challenges of historical inference in this region is highlighted.
The ecology and evolution of ant association in the Lycaenidae (Lepidoptera).
Both demographic and phylogenetic evidence indicate that ant association has shaped the evolution of obligately associated groups, and further research on phylogeny and natural history, particularly of the Neotropical fauna, will be necessary to understand the role ants have played in the Evolution of the Lycaenidae.

The hypothesis that bacteria have facilitated convergent evolution of herbivory across the ants is supported, further implicating symbiosis as a major force in ant evolution.
A Comprehensive and Dated Phylogenomic Analysis of Butterflies
Local people value environmental services provided by forested parks
Garnering support from local people is critical for maintaining ecologically viable and functional protected areas. However, empirical data illustrating local people’s awareness of the importance of…
Phylogeography and genetic diversity of a widespread Old World butterfly, Lampides boeticus (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae)
The combined analyses suggest a scenario in which the most recent common ancestor of Lampides boeticus and its sister taxon lived in the African region approximately 7 Mya; extant lineages of L.boeticus began spreading throughout the Old World at least 1.5 Mya.
