Arthropod relationships revealed by phylogenomic analysis of nuclear protein-coding sequences
This work presents strongly supported results from likelihood, Bayesian and parsimony analyses of over 41 kilobases of aligned DNA sequence from 62 single-copy nuclear protein-coding genes from 75 arthropod species, providing a statistically well-supported phylogenetic framework for the largest animal phylum.
An Updated Classification Of The Recent Crustacea
An updated classification of the Crustacea down to the level of family is provided. The classification is based loosely on that given by Bowman and Abele (1982) and includes all new families and
A Classification of Living and Fossil Genera of Decapod Crustaceans
This compilation is the first comprehensive estimate of taxonomic diversity within the entire Decapoda, listing all known families and genera organized by higher taxonomic groups and including estimates of the number of species in every genus.
Resolving arthropod phylogeny: exploring phylogenetic signal within 41 kb of protein-coding nuclear gene sequence.
This study attempts to resolve relationships among and within the four basal arthropod lineages and to assess the widespread expectation that remaining phylogenetic problems will yield to increasing amounts of sequence data.
The Decapod Tree of Life: Compiling the Data and Moving toward a Consensus of Decapod Evolution
A molecular phylogeny for the order Decapoda is presented, combining nuclear and mitochondrial sequences, to investigate relationships among nine pleocyemate infraorders, one dendrobranchiate superfamily, 56 families, 113 genera, and 128 species, and discusses current and new hypotheses of decapod relationships.
Phylogeny of the Infraorder Caridea Based on Mitochondrial and Nuclear Genes (Crustacea: Decapoda)
The first comprehensive molecular phylogeny of the infraorder Caridea is presented, combining nuclear and mitochondrial gene sequences, to evaluate the relationships among 14 superfamilies and 30 families and suggests polyphyletic and paraphyletic relationships among genera within the families Atyidae, Pasiphaeidae, Oplophoridae, Hippolytidae, Gnathophyllidae, and Palaemonidae.
The emergence of lobsters: phylogenetic relationships, morphological evolution and divergence time comparisons of an ancient group (decapoda: achelata, astacidea, glypheidea, polychelida).
This study estimated phylogenetic relationships among the major groups of all lobster families and 94% of the genera using six genes (mitochondrial and nuclear) and 195 morphological characters across 173 species of lobsters for the most comprehensive sampling to date.
Decapod crustaceans from hydrothermal vents and cold seeps: a review through 2005
The taxonomic status, biogeographical distributions and existing collections are reviewed for all species of decapod crustaceans known from the vicinity of hydrothermal vents and cold (hydrocarbon or
External morphology of the male of Cyclestheria hislopi (Baird, 1859) (Crustacea, Branchiopoda, Spinicaudata), with a comparison of male claspers among the Conchostraca and Cladocera and its bearing
The adult male of Cyclestheria hislopi, sole member of the spinicaudate conchostracan clam shrimp family Cyclestheriidae and a species of potential phylogenetic importance, is described for the first
