Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera, and Trichoptera fauna of Churchill (Manitoba, Canada): insights into biodiversity patterns from DNA barcoding
The ways in which patterns of intraspecific and interspecific genetic divergences in the barcode region can provide rapid insights into the taxonomic identity, morphological features, and geographical distributions of species are considered.
A DNA Barcode Library for North American Ephemeroptera: Progress and Prospects
It is imperative that type or topotype specimens be sequenced to correctly associate barcode clusters with morphological species concepts and to determine the status of currently synonymized species.
Towards a comprehensive barcode library for arctic life - Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera, and Trichoptera of Churchill, Manitoba, Canada
The correlation between the morphological species delineations, DNA barcode-based haplotype clusters delimited by a sequence threshold (2%), and a threshold-free approach to biodiversity quantification--phylogenetic diversity are explored.
Revision of Ephemerellidae Genera (Ephemeroptera)
The generic classification of Ephemerellidae Klapálek (Ephemeroptera) is reviewed and revised, and a higher classification ofEphemerelliinae is proposed based on the naming of groups from these trees.
New research resources at the Bloomington Drosophila Stock Center
A brief overview of significant recent events at the BDSC is provided with a focus on new stock sets acquired in the past year, including stocks for φC31 transformation, RNAi knockdown of gene expression, and SNP and quantitative trait loci discovery.
Accelerated construction of a regional DNA-barcode reference library: caddisflies (Trichoptera) in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park
The investigation of COI divergence patterns in caddisflies is providing new insights into broader biodiversity patterns in this group and has directed attention to various issues, ranging from the need to re-evaluate species taxonomy with integrated morphological and molecular evidence to the necessity of an appropriate interpretation of barcode analyses.
Reevaluation of the Phylogeny of the Ephemeroptera Infraorder Pannota (Furcatergalia), with Adjustments to Higher Classification
Abstract Phylogeny of the cosmopolitan Ephemeroptera infraorder Pannota (Furcatergalia) is revised based on analysis of 46 characters from 34 Operational Taxonomic Units under the parsimony criterion
The Mayflies (Ephemeroptera) of the Southeastern United States
ABSTRACT An annotated checklist consisting of 300 species is provided for the mayfly fauna of the southeastern United States [Alabama (139 spp.), Arkansas (118 spp.), Florida (77 spp.), Georgia (155
Combined molecular and morphological phylogeny of Ephemerellinae (Ephemerellidae: Ephemeroptera), with remarks about classification
This study represents the first combined molecular and morphological analysis for the mayfly family Ephemerellidae (Ephemeroptera), with a focus on the relationships of genera and species groups of
A New Oriental Species of Behningia Lestage (Ephemeroptera: Behningiidae)
A new species of primitive tuskless burrowing mayflies, Behningia baei, new species, is described from larvae taken in Thailand, and is differentiated from congeners primarily by its labial palps, labrum, and base of the mid legs.
