Histone H3 and U2 snRNA DNA sequences and arthropod molecular evolution
The range of DNA sequences used to study the interrelationships of the major arthropod groups (chelicerates, myriapods, hexapods and crustaceans) is limited. Here we investigate the value of twoExpand

Arthropod Cladistics: Combined Analysis of Histone H3 and U2 snRNA Sequences and Morphology
Morphological, developmental, ultrastructural, and gene order characters are catalogued for the same set of arthropod terminals as we have scored in a recent study of histone H3 and U2 snRNAExpand

Global-scale latitudinal patterns of species diversity in the deep-sea benthos
LATITUDINAL gradients of species diversity are ubiquitous features of terrestrial and coastal marine biotas, and they have inspired the development of theoretical ecology1–3. Since the discovery ofExpand

Historical influences on deep-sea isopod diversity in the Atlantic Ocean
Most isopod crustaceans in the North Atlantic deep sea belong to the suborder Asellota. In contrast, South Atlantic isopod faunas have a significant component of flabelliferan isopods, a phylogeneticExpand

Polychaete species diversity in the central Pacific abyss: Local and regional patterns and relationships with productivity
We investigated the relationship between productivity and local species diversity, and the degree of species turnover, at 8 sites on the central equatorial Pacific abyssal plain. The 8 sites span aExpand

Global diversity of Isopod crustaceans (Crustacea; Isopoda) in freshwater
The isopod crustaceans are diverse both morphologically and in described species numbers. Nearly 950 described species (∼9% of all isopods) live in continental waters, and possibly 1,400 speciesExpand

The phylogenetic position of the Isopoda in the Peracarida (Crustacea: Malacostraca)
> Abstract The sister group to the isopod crustaceans remains a controversial proposition. Previous studies have used idealised composite taxa or few exemplars, resulting in confl icting assertionsExpand

Tanaidacean phylogeny, the first step: the superfamily Paratanaidoidea
This paper addresses the phylogeny of the superfamily Paratanaidoidea using computer-assisted parsimony methods. Our morphologically based, empirical analysis uses exemplar species from all familiesExpand

Bathymetric zonation of deep-sea macrofauna in relation to export of surface phytoplankton production
Macrobenthos of the deep, northern Gulf of Mexico (GoM) was sampled with box cores (0.2 m 2 ) along multiple cross-depth transects extending from depths of 200 m to the maximum depth of the basin atExpand
