The tempo and mode of barnacle evolution.
Previous phylogenetic attempts at resolving barnacle evolutionary relationships are few and have relied on limited taxon sampling. Here we combine DNA sequences from three nuclear genes (18S, 28S andExpand
Evolutionary and biogeographical patterns of barnacles from deep‐sea hydrothermal vents
The characterization of evolutionary and biogeographical patterns is of fundamental importance to identify factors driving biodiversity. Due to their widespread but discontinuous distribution,Expand
Allying with armored snails: the complete genome of gammaproteobacterial endosymbiont
Deep-sea vents harbor dense populations of various animals that have their specific symbiotic bacteria. Scaly-foot gastropods, which are snails with mineralized scales covering the sides of its foot,Expand
Host-Symbiont Relationships in Hydrothermal Vent Gastropods of the Genus Alviniconcha from the Southwest Pacific
ABSTRACT Hydrothermal vent gastropods of the genus Alviniconcha are unique among metazoans in their ability to derive their nutrition from chemoautotrophic γ- and ε-proteobacterial endosymbionts.Expand
Dispersal and Differentiation of Deep-Sea Mussels of the Genus Bathymodiolus (Mytilidae, Bathymodiolinae)
We sequenced the mitochondrial ND4 gene to elucidate the evolutionary processes of Bathymodiolus mussels and mytilid relatives. Mussels of the subfamily Bathymodiolinae from vents and seeps belongedExpand
Discovery of New Hydrothermal Activity and Chemosynthetic Fauna on the Central Indian Ridge at 18°–20°S
Indian Ocean hydrothermal vents are believed to represent a novel biogeographic province, and are host to many novel genera and families of animals, potentially indigenous to Indian OceanExpand
Population structure of Japanese spiny lobster Panulirus japonicus inferred by nucleotide sequence analysis of mitochondrial COI gene
The mitochondrial DNA sequence for the COI region was determined for 73 Panulirus japonicus individuals collected at three sample locations in Japan. Fifty-one haplotypes, including 69 polymorphicExpand
Single host and symbiont lineages of hydrothermal-vent gastropods Ifremeria nautilei (Provannidae) : biogeography and evolution
Hydrothermal-vent gastropods belonging to the genus Ifremeria of the family Provan- nidae, which derive their nutrition from chemoautotrophic bacterial endosymbionts, constitute an important faunalExpand
Phylogenetic position and evolutionary history of the turtle and whale barnacles (Cirripedia: Balanomorpha: Coronuloidea).
Barnacles of the superfamily Coronuloidea are obligate epibionts of various marine mammals, marine reptiles and large crustaceans. We used five molecular markers: 12S rDNA, 16S rDNA, 18S rDNA, 28SExpand
Brucite chimney formation and carbonate alteration at the Shinkai Seep Field, a serpentinite-hosted vent system in the Southern Mariana Forearc
Brucite-carbonate chimneys were discovered from the deepest known (∼5700 m depth) serpentinite-hosted ecosystem – the Shinkai Seep Field (SSF) in the southern Mariana forearc. Textural observationsExpand
