DNA barcoding insect–host plant associations
Short-sequence fragments (‘DNA barcodes’) used widely for plant identification and inventorying remain to be applied to complex biological problems. Host–herbivore interactions are fundamental toExpand

DNA profiling of host–herbivore interactions in tropical forests
1. The diversity of insects in tropical forests remains poorly known, in particular regarding the critical feeding associations of herbivores, which are thought to drive species richness in theseExpand

Mitochondrial genome rearrangements at low taxonomic levels: three distinct mitogenome gene orders in the genus Pseudoniphargus (Crustacea: Amphipoda)
Abstract A comparison of mitochondrial genomes of three species of the amphipod Pseudoniphargus revealed the occurrence of a surprisingly high level of gene rearrangement involving protein-codingExpand

Discovery of new species of New Caledonian Arsipoda Erichson, 1842 (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) and insights on their ecology and evolution using DNA markers
New Caledonia is among Earth's biodiversity hotspots, and we are far from knowing how many species it sustains. We applied DNA-based methods for quick biodiversity assessment of New CaledonianExpand

Species delimitation and mitogenome phylogenetics in the subterranean genus Pseudoniphargus (Crustacea: Amphipoda).
The amphi-Atlantic distributions exhibited by many thalassoid stygobiont (obligate subterranean) crustaceans have been explained by fragmentation by plate tectonics of ancestral shallow water marineExpand

DNA barcodes, cryptic diversity and phylogeography of a W Mediterranean assemblage of thermosbaenacean crustaceans
We assess the occurrence of crypticism and analyse the phylogeography of a thermosbaenacean crustacean, the monodellid Tethysbaena scabra, endemic to the Balearic Islands (W Mediterranean). ThisExpand

High-throughput biodiversity analysis: Rapid assessment of species richness and ecological interactions of Chrysomelidae (Coleoptera) in the tropics
Abstract Biodiversity assessment has been the focus of intense debate and conceptual and methodological advances in recent years. The cultural, academic and aesthetic impulses to recognise andExpand

Molecular systematics of Haploginglymus, a genus of subterranean amphipods endemic to the Iberian Peninsula (Amphipoda: Niphargidae)
The molecular systematics of the subterranean amphipod genus Haploginglymus is addressed through the phylogenetic analysis of three DNA gene fragments (nuclear ribosomal 28S and protein-codingExpand

The complete mitochondrial genome of the cave shrimp Typhlatya miravetensis (Decapoda, Atyidae) and its systematic position
Abstract The complete mitochondrial genome of Typhlatya miravetensis from one of its only three known localities (Ullal de la Rabla de Miravet, Castellón, Spain) is presented here. The mitogenome isExpand

Phylogenetic evidence that both ancient vicariance and dispersal have contributed to the biogeographic patterns of anchialine cave shrimps
Cave shrimps from the genera Typhlatya, Stygiocaris and Typhlopatsa (Atyidae) are restricted to specialised coastal subterranean habitats or nearby freshwaters and have a highly disconnectedExpand
