Revisiting the phylogeography of Asellus aquaticus in Europe: insights into cryptic diversity and spatiotemporal diversification
TLDR
Deep genetic subdivisions observed in European populations of the widespread freshwater isopod morphospecies, Asellus aquaticus, suggest the presence of putative cryptic species, which can be interpreted predominantly as a result of incomplete sorting of nuclear lineages, potentially indicating an ongoing speciation process.
A new view on dam lines in Polish Arabian horses based on mtDNA analysis
TLDR
The study revealed that representatives of different lines shared the same haplotypes, and noted a genetic identity between some lines founded by Polish mares of unknown origin and lines established by desert-bred mares.
Host compatibility as a critical factor in management unit recognition: population‐level differences in mussel–fish relationships
TLDR
It is demonstrated that small-scale cross-compatibility testing can be effectively used to diagnose the sources of variability in host relationships with direct management implications, and can enhance the targeting of management actions in many biological applications addressing species conservation, biological invasions and ecosystem processes.
Mitochondrial DNA differentiation between two forms of trout Salmo letnica, endemic to the Balkan Lake Ohrid, reflects their reproductive isolation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a single duplication of the approximately 82 bp repeat unit is a common element of the salmonid mitochondrial control region and represents a highly valuable genetic resource that deserves appropriate management and conservation.
Genetic and morphological differentiation between isolated Polish populations of "glacial relict", an endangered butterfly, Oeneis jutta (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae)
TLDR
The preliminary results are in accord with an a priori subdivision based on collection areas and suggest that habitat fragmentation has affected the genetic diversity and structure of these populations.
First insight into microbiome profile of fungivorous thrips Hoplothrips carpathicus (Insecta: Thysanoptera) at different developmental stages: molecular evidence of Wolbachia endosymbiosis
TLDR
Characterization of bacterial communities of four developmental stages of the fungivorous species Hoplothrips carpathicus, verification of the presence of Wolbachia, in silico prediction of metabolic potentials of the microorganisms, and sequencing its mitochondrial COI barcode showed that changes in microbiome composition are congruent with the successive stages of H. car pathicus development.
Origin of the Lake Ohrid gammarid species flock: ancient local phylogenetic lineage diversification
TLDR
It appears that the Lake Ohrid gammarids derive from an old local lineage of the Gammarus balcanicus complex, closely affiliated with the biota endemic to the neighbouring area of the former Miocene lake system and to lineages from the upper Vardar and Crni Drim river systems.
Instances of erroneous DNA barcoding of metazoan invertebrates: Are universal cox1 gene primers too “universal”?
TLDR
It is estimated with 95% probability that the chances of finding incorrectly described metazoan sequences in the GenBank depend on the systematic group, and variety from less than 1% (Mollusca and Arthropoda) up to 6.9% (Gastrotricha).
A tale of time and depth: intralacustrine radiation in endemic Gammarus species flock from the ancient Lake Ohrid
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses showed that endemic Gammarus species comprise an ancient species flock, withGammarus sketi from the feeder springs being their sister taxon outside the lake, and two novel mtDNA lineages were found within the lake.
