Ancient River Inference Explains Exceptional Oriental Freshwater Mussel Radiations
The concept of long-lived (ancient) lakes has had a great influence on the development of evolutionary biogeography. According to this insight, a number of lakes on Earth have existed for severalExpand

New taxa of freshwater mussels (Unionidae) from a species-rich but overlooked evolutionary hotspot in Southeast Asia
Southeast Asia harbors a unique and diverse freshwater fauna of Mesozoic origin, which is under severe threat of extinction because of rapid economic development and urbanization. The largestExpand

Spreading of the Chinese pond mussel, Sinanodonta woodiana, across Wallacea: One or more lineages invade tropical islands and Europe
Abstract Here we report the first molecular data on an invasive Sinanodonta woodiana ( Lea, 1834 ) (Bivalvia: Unionidae) population from Lesser Sundas (Flores Island, Indonesia). The DNA barcodingExpand

Aliens are moving to the Arctic frontiers: an integrative approach reveals selective expansion of androgenic hybrid Corbicula lineages towards the North of Russia
Increases in human activity and climate change are factors that are expected to augment the number and impact of alien species in the northern regions. In the present paper, we report the discoveryExpand

Multi-locus fossil-calibrated phylogeny, biogeography and a subgeneric revision of the Margaritiferidae (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Unionoida).
The taxonomy and biogeographic history of the bivalve family Margaritiferidae are controversial because previous molecular studies did not provide a well-resolved phylogenetic framework for theseExpand

Species Richness, Molecular Taxonomy and Biogeography of the Radicine Pond Snails (Gastropoda: Lymnaeidae) in the Old World
The radicine pond snails represent a species-rich and widely distributed group, many species of which are key vectors of human and animal trematodoses. Here we clarify the taxonomy, distribution andExpand

First molecular identification of Australapatemon burti (Miller, 1923) (Trematoda: Digenea: Strigeidae) from an intermediate host Radix labiata (Rossmaessler) (Gastropoda: Lymnaeidae) in Europe.
The strigeid digenean species Australapatemon burti (Miller, 1923) (Trematoda: Digenea: Strigeidae) was originally described from North America, but recorded in the Neotropical region (Drago et al.Expand
