Mitochondrial phylogeny of notothenioids: a molecular approach to Antarctic fish evolution and biogeography.
Antarctic waters represent a unique marine environment delimited by an oceanographic barrier, the Polar Front Zone, and characterized by constant subzero temperatures and presence of sea ice. A groupExpand

Ancient climate change, antifreeze, and the evolutionary diversification of Antarctic fishes
The Southern Ocean around Antarctica is among the most rapidly warming regions on Earth, but has experienced episodic climate change during the past 40 million years. It remains unclear how ancientExpand

Molecular zoogeography of Antarctic euphausiids and notothenioids: from species phylogenies to intraspecific patterns of genetic variation
Published and unpublished data are used to investigate possible mechanisms of species diversification in two key groups of Antarctic organisms: the Notothenioidei and the Euphausiidae. SpeciesExpand

Molecular evidence for genetic subdivision of Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba Dana) populations
Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba Dana) is a key species in the Antarctic food web and occurs on a circum-continental scale. Population genetic structure of this species was investigated by sequenceExpand

Genetic differentiation in a pelagic crustacean (Meganyctiphanes norvegica: Euphausiacea) from the North East Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea
Meganyctiphanes norvegica (M. Sars)is a pelagic crustacean that plays a key role in marine food webs of North Atlantic Ocean and marginal seas. We studied eight population samples collected in theExpand

Genetic differentiation in the winter pine processionary moth (Thaumetopoea pityocampa — wilkinsoni complex), inferred by AFLP and mitochondrial DNA markers
The winter pine processionary moth has become an important pine pest in the last century, as a consequence of the spread of pine cultivation in the Mediterranean region. The pattern of geneticExpand

A resource of genome‐wide single‐nucleotide polymorphisms generated by RAD tag sequencing in the critically endangered European eel
Reduced representation genome sequencing such as restriction‐site‐associated DNA (RAD) sequencing is finding increased use to identify and genotype large numbers of single‐nucleotide polymorphismsExpand

Spatio-temporal population structuring and genetic diversity retention in depleted Atlantic Bluefin tuna of the Mediterranean Sea
Fishery genetics have greatly changed our understanding of population dynamics and structuring in marine fish. In this study, we show that the Atlantic Bluefin tuna (ABFT, Thunnus thynnus), anExpand

Demographic history and population structure of the Antarctic silverfish Pleuragramma antarcticum
The Antarctic silverfish Pleuragramma antarcticum (Nototheniidae) is the most abundant pelagic fish inhabiting Antarctic waters. In this study we investigated, through partial sequencing of theExpand
