Genetic connectivity between land and sea: the case of the beachflea Orchestia montagui (Crustacea, Amphipoda, Talitridae) in the Mediterranean Sea
IntroductionWe examined patterns of genetic divergence in 26 Mediterranean populations of the semi-terrestrial beachflea Orchestia montagui using mitochondrial (cytochrome oxidase subunit I),Expand

Talitrid amphipods (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Talitridae) and the driftwood ecological niche: a morphological and molecular study
Coastal regions of the North East Atlantic and Mediterranean Seas have four known species of driftwood talitrids. Records are extremely scanty, often limited to the type locality and dating to 1950.Expand

Further morphological and molecular studies of driftwood hoppers (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Talitridae) from Mediterranean/north-east Atlantic coastlines
An unknown talitrid was discovered in 2011 in the Swale, UK, living in driftwood. Sequencing of multiple mitochondrial and nuclear genes (cytochrome oxidase I, 18S rDNA and 28S rDNA) confirms thatExpand

Temporal and spatial distribution of three supralittoral amphipod species on a sandy beach of central Italy
The distribution of three talitrid species—Talitrus saltator (Montagu, 1808), Orchestia gammarella (Pallas, 1766), Platorchestia platensis (Kroyer, 1845)—in the beach-dune system at the mouth of theExpand

Mitochondrial DNA and microsatellites reveal significant divergence in the beachflea Orchestia montagui (Talitridae: Amphipoda)
Talitrids are semiterrestrial crustacean amphipods inhabiting sandy and rocky beaches; they generally show limited active dispersal over long distances. In this study we assessed levels of populationExpand

Patterns of genetic structuring and levels of differentiation in supralittoral talitrid amphipods: An overview
Talitrids are the only family within the order Amphipoda to have colonised supralittoral and terrestrial environments. They live in a variety of settings, from sandy to rocky and pebble beaches, toExpand

Supralittoral amphipod abundances across habitats on Mediterranean temperate beaches
Community complexity and abiotic conditions are key components of environmental heterogeneity that affect the abundance and distribution of species. In this study we evaluated how environmentalExpand

Wave transport in random systems: multiple resonance character of necklace modes and their statistical behavior.
We present the experimental observation of multiple resonance transport of light waves, due to necklace states, in disordered one-dimensional systems. Transmission phase measurements allow us toExpand

Isolation and characterization of thirteen polymorphic microsatellite markers from the bluestriped snappers Lutjanus kasmira and L. Bengalensis
Thirteen polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized from the reef fish L. kasmira. Polymorphism was studied in two populations from the South-West Indian Ocean, Seychelles andExpand

Life history of the talitrid amphipod Macarorchestia remyi (Schellenberg, 1950) on a Tyrrhenian sandy beach, Italy
In this study, we analysed the life cycle and some aspects of the reproductive biology of the talitrid amphipod Macarorchestia remyi (Schellenberg, 1950) on a sandy beach in central Italy (TyrrhenianExpand
