A comprehensive DNA barcode database for Central European beetles with a focus on Germany: adding more than 3500 identified species to BOLD
Beetles are the most diverse group of animals and are crucial for ecosystem functioning. In many countries, they are well established for environmental impact assessment, but even in the well‐studiedExpand
Annotated type catalogue of the Bulimulinae (Pulmonata, Orthalicoidea, Bulimulidae) in the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin
This catalogue lists all types of Bulimulinae held by the Malacological Collection of the Museum of Natural History, Humboldt University Berlin. In total types or probable types of 146 taxa areExpand
Tethyan relicts on continental coastlines of the northwestern Pacific Ocean and Australasia: molecular phylogeny and fossil record of batillariid gastropods (Caenogastropoda, Cerithioidea)
The Batillariidae are a family of cerithioidean gastropods consisting of 14 living species, classified in six to eight genera. They are abundant on sandy mudflats and sometimes on rocky shores, onExpand
Genetic divergence and evolution of reproductive isolation in Eastern Mediterranean water frogs
Water frogs [genus Pelophylax (Rana)] that occur around the eastern Mediterranean Sea provide an opportunity to study early stages of speciation. The geography of the eastern Mediterranean region hasExpand
Evolution of serum albumin intron-1 is shaped by a 5' truncated non-long terminal repeat retrotransposon in western Palearctic water frogs (Neobatrachia).
A 5' truncated non-LTR CR1-like retrotransposon, named RanaCR1, was identified in the serum albumin intron-1 (SAI-1) of at least seven species of western Palearctic water frogs (WPWF). Based onExpand
Phylogeny and systematics of the Pachychilidae of mainland South-East Asia - novel insights from morphology and mitochondrial DNA (Mollusca, Caenogastropoda, Cerithioidea)
Pachychilid gastropods are a conspicuous element of the freshwater macro-invertebrate fauna of South-East Asia. In this region, three spatially separated groups of pachychilids can be differentiatedExpand
The radiation of microhylid frogs (Amphibia: Anura) on New Guinea: a mitochondrial phylogeny reveals parallel evolution of morphological and life history traits and disproves the current
Microhylidae account for the majority of frog species on New Guinea and have evolved an extraordinarily wide range of ecological, behavioural, and morphological traits. Several species are known forExpand
Out of Asia and into India : on the molecular phylogeny and biogeography of the endemic freshwater gastropod Paracrostoma Cossmann, 1900 (Caenogastropoda: Pachychilidae)
Pachychilidae are distributed in the tropical regions of the southern continents implying a Gondwanan history. In the present study, we investigate the phylogenetic relationships of the freshwaterExpand
