Biodiversity redistribution under climate change: Impacts on ecosystems and human well-being
The negative effects of climate change cannot be adequately anticipated or prepared for unless species responses are explicitly included in decision-making and global strategic frameworks, and feedbacks on climate itself are documented. Expand
Southern Ocean diversity: new paradigms from molecular ecology.
It is shown that, in addition to reflecting life-history characteristics, the molecular signals found in these studies provide an insight into how species survived the last glacial maximum (LGM). Expand
Molecular phylogeny of coleoid cephalopods (Mollusca: Cephalopoda) using a multigene approach; the effect of data partitioning on resolving phylogenies in a Bayesian framework.
The results suggest that the Decapodiformes may have radiated earlier and/or had faster rates of evolution than the Octopodiforme, and the order Octopoda and suborders Cirrata, Incirrata and Oegopsida are monophyletic groups. Expand
The thermohaline expressway: the Southern Ocean as a centre of origin for deep‐sea octopuses
It is suggested that the initiation of the global thermohaline circulation provided a mechanism for the radiation of Southern Ocean fauna into the deep sea and acted as an evolutionary driver enabling the Southern Ocean to become a centre of origin for deep‐sea fauna. Expand
What can the mitochondrial genome reveal about higher-level phylogeny of the molluscan class Cephalopoda?
The first analysis of cephalopod mitochondrial gene order is presented and phylogenies based on gene order using Bayesian, distance, and parsimony analysis methods are constructed. Expand
Cryptic speciation and the circumpolarity debate: A case study on endemic Southern Ocean octopuses using the COI barcode of life
Three hundred and fifty specimens of the endemic Southern Ocean octopus genus Pareledone, were sequenced for the barcoding gene COI. Geographic coverage comprised the South Shetland Islands, the RossExpand
Cephalopod genomics: A plan of strategies and organization
The Cephalopod Sequencing Consortium (CephSeq Consortium) was established at a NESCent Catalysis Group Meeting held in Durham, North Carolina, USA on May 24–27, 2012 to address the pressing need for genome sequencing of cephalipod mollusks. Expand
A barcode of life database for the Cephalopoda? Considerations and concerns
This review attempts to describe the concept of the BoLD initiative and to outline considerations and concerns specific to a cephalopod BoLD. Expand
Poles Apart: The “Bipolar” Pteropod Species Limacina helicina Is Genetically Distinct Between the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans
The reassessment of the taxonomic status of shelled pteropod Limacina helicina indicates that it is in fact not bipolar, and demonstrates the need for acidification research to take into account the possibility that the L. helicina species group may not respond in the same way to ocean acidification in Arctic and Antarctic ecosystems.

How useful are the recommended counts and indices in the systematics of the Octopodidae (Mollusca: Cephalopoda)
Multivariate analysis of the morphological dataset suggests that these counts and indices, traditionally used for discriminating between species in cephalopods, do not show great discrimination at species level, but provide excellent discrimination at the generic level, and, as such, might be useful for resolving the generic placement of some problematic taxa.
