Nucleotide substitution rates for the full set of mitochondrial protein-coding genes in Coleoptera.
The ages of cladogenetic events in Coleoptera are frequently estimated with mitochondrial protein-coding genes (MPCGs) and the "standard" mitochondrial nucleotide substitution rate for arthropods.Expand

Large‐scale molecular phylogeny of Cryptorhynchinae (Coleoptera, Curculionidae) from multiple genes suggests American origin and later Australian radiation
The monophyly of the highly diverse weevil subfamily Cryptorhynchinae is tested with a dataset of 203 taxa representing 159 genera of Curculionoidea, 105 of them Cryptorhynchinae s.l. We construct aExpand

DNA‐based identification of preys from non‐destructive, total DNA extractions of predators using arthropod universal primers
Here, I show that prey sequences can be detected from DNA of tiger beetles of the genus Rivacindela using whole specimens, nondestructive methods, and universal cytochrome b primers for arthropods.Expand

Cryptic diversity, intraspecific phenetic plasticity and recent geographical translocations in Branchiomma (Sabellidae, Annelida)
The importance of identifying biological diversity accurately and efficiently is becoming more evident. It is therefore critical to determine the species boundaries between closely related taxa andExpand

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

Conservation of satellite DNA in species of the genus Pimelia (Tenebrionidae, Coleoptera).
Satellite DNA has been characterized in six allopatric species from the genus Pimelia: P. interjecta, P. integra, P. variolosa and P. baetica, inhabiting Iberian Peninsula, and P. elevata and P.Expand

Characterization of the heterochromatin of the darkling beetle Misolampus goudoti: cloning of two satellite DNA families and digestion of chromosomes with restriction enzymes.
The darkling beetle Misolampus goudoti Er. has 58% of C-banded chromosome material. In this paper we deal with the study of the heterochromatin of this insect both by molecular and cytogeneticalExpand

Closing the gap: New data on the last documented Myotragus and the first human evidence on Mallorca (Balearic Islands, Western Mediterranean Sea)
The chronology of the extinction of the Balearic fossil bovid Myotragus balearicus in Mallorca and Menorca has been under discussion since its discovery in 1909, and especially in the last decades,Expand
