Biogeography of the Indo-Australian Archipelago
The extraordinary species richness and endemism of the Indo-Australian Archipelago (IAA) exists in one of the most geologically dynamic regions of the planet. The provenance of its biota has beenExpand
Intraspecific genetic diversity of the endemic freshwater crab Candidiopotamon rathbunae (Decapoda, Brachyura, Potamidae) reflects five million years of the geological history of Taiwan
Aim Candidiopotamon rathbunae (Crustacea: Brachyura: Potamidae) is a freshwater crab endemic to Taiwan, with a distribution covering almost the entire island. Crab populations from different riverExpand
Seven new species of Amynthas (Clitellata: Megascolecidae) and new earthworm records from Taiwan
Earthworm specimens collected in southern Taiwan consisted of seven new species of Amynthas and several previously known species, mostly widely distributed peregrines. The new species are A.Expand
Pleistocene speciation of freshwater crabs (Crustacea: Potamidae: Geothelphusa) from northern Taiwan and southern Ryukyus, as revealed by phylogenetic relationships
Abstract The phylogenetic relationship among freshwater crab species of Geothelphusa from northern Taiwan and the Yaeyama Group of islands (including Iriomote and Ishigaki) in the southern RyukyusExpand
Chimney Building by Male Uca formosensis Rathbun, 1921 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Ocypodidae) after Pairing: A New Hypothesis for Chimney Function
The construction of a chimney after pairing is first described for Uca formosensis Rathbun, 1921, a fiddler crab endemic to Taiwan. After attracting a female into his burrow, the male builds aExpand
The collision of the Indian plate with Asia : molecular evidence for its impact on the phylogeny of freshwater crabs (Brachyura: Potamidae)
Aim  We used molecular data to answer the following questions: (1) Is morphology-based (and to some extent, geography-based) classification of the freshwater crab family Potamidae congruent with aExpand
Taxonomy, Phylogeny, and Biogeography of the Endemic Mudflat Crab Helice/Chasmagnathus Complex (Crustacea: Brachyura: Varunidae) from East Asia
114-125. The taxonomy, phylogeny, and biogeography of the endemic genera Helice, Helicana, and Chasmagnathus from East Asia were studied using 2 mitochondrial genes: the large subunit (16S) ribosomalExpand
Genetic evidence for the recognition of two fiddler crabs, Uca iranica and U. albimana (Crustacea: Brachyura: Ocypodidae), from the northwestern Indian Ocean, with notes on the U. lactea
The status of two poorly known fiddler crabs, Uca iranica Pretzmann, 1971, from the Persian Gulf, and U. albimana (Kossmann, 1877), from the Red Sea, was studied using two mitochondrial genes: theExpand
Morphology of Uca formosensis Rathbun, 1921 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Ocypodidae), an Endemic Fiddler Crab from Taiwan, with Notes on its Ecology
Hsi-Te Shih, Hin-Kiu Mok, Hsueh-Wen Chang and Sin-Che Lee (1999) Morphology of Uca formosensis Rathbun, 1921 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Ocypodidae), an endemic fiddler crab from Taiwan, with notes on itsExpand
