The Molecular Clock Hypothesis: Biochemical Evolution, Genetic Differentiation and Systematics
should not be any clearcut borderline between them. The major distinction, if any, probably lies in the aims of various workers; the evolutionary geneticist studies organisms with a view toExpand

The use of allozyme electrophoresis in invertebrate systematics
The role of enzyme electrophoresis is discussed as it applies to taxonomy and systematics. particularly of invertebrates. Details are given of methods for distinguishing and identifying cryptic orExpand

Analysis of immune-related loci identifies 48 new susceptibility variants for multiple sclerosis
Using the ImmunoChip custom genotyping array, we analyzed 14,498 subjects with multiple sclerosis and 24,091 healthy controls for 161,311 autosomal variants and identified 135 potentially associatedExpand

DOES COSMOPOLITANISM RESULT FROM OVERCONSERVATIVE SYSTEMATICS? A CASE STUDY USING THE MARINE SPONGE CHONDRILLA NUCULA
The sponge species Chondrilla nucula has a simple morphology and a very wide geographical distribution. To verify whether the latter might be an artifact of the former, samples of this species wereExpand

Exploited marine invertebrates: genetics and fisheries
The application of genetic techniques to invertebrate fisheries is in many ways essentially similar to that in vertebrate (i.e. finfish) fisheries, for which there is already an extensive body ofExpand

Biological control of fouling in suspended scallop cultivation.
Abstract Fouling of scallop shells and cultivation nets by living organisms is costly to remove and can reduce scallop growth. Here we investigate biological control of fouling in suspended scallop (Expand

The genetic structure of intertidal populations of two species of nudibranch molluscs with planktotrophic and pelagic lecithotrophic larval stages: are pelagic larvae “for” dispersal?
Abstract Planktonic larvae of benthic marine invertebrates may confer larval dispersal and colonization potential on the reproductive adult. Analyses of genetic heterogeneity of local populationsExpand

Population structure of the Dover sole, Solea solea L., in a background of high gene flow
Abstract To investigate the genetic population structure of the Dover sole, Solea solea L., allozyme electrophoresis was performed on 303 fish collected from seven locations ranging from Cumbria,Expand

Genetic and cytological divergence between colour morphs of the Mediterranean sponge Oscarella lobularis Schmidt (Porifera, Demospongiae, Oscarellidae)
The demosponge Oscarella lobularis (Schmidt, 1862) has been reported from various localities throughout the world and is abundant in many areas. It is considered to be morphologically very variable,Expand

Restricted gene flow and evolutionary divergence between geographically separated populations of the Antarctic octopus Pareledone turqueti
Abstract Samples of the Antarctic octopus Pareledone turqueti were taken from three locations on the Scotia Ridge in the Southern Ocean. The genetic homogeneity of these populations was investigatedExpand
