The phylogenetic reconstruction suggests that although repeated invasions in Melanoides may have an impact on indigenous molluscan faunas, their most likely effect is the world‐wide homogenization of the invasive taxon itself.

It is shown here that there has been no acceleration in the rate of speciation in the thalassoid gastropods of the lake following lake colonization, suggesting limited within–lake speciation has occurred.

Molecular data reveal multiple independent colonizations of the lakes by riverine ancestors and repeated parallel evolution in radula morphology indicates that speciation within lineages is driven by divergent adaptation to different resources among sympatric taxa.
Phylogeny of the gastropod superfamily Cerithioidea using morphology and molecules
The combination of diverse data sources (morphology, 16S and 28S sequences) and inclusion of unconserved regions of the alignments improved the recovery of monophyletic families, and a consensus is beginning to emerge in the recognition of three main assemblages.
Tethyan relicts on continental coastlines of the northwestern Pacific Ocean and Australasia: molecular phylogeny and fossil record of batillariid gastropods (Caenogastropoda, Cerithioidea)
A definition of the family using shell characters, as a basis for a review of the extensive fossil record, is proposed and a revised generic classification consistent with the phylogenetic hypothesis is suggested.
Evolution in action : case studies in adaptive radiation, speciation and the origin of biodiversity
Radiation, Biological Diversity and Host-Parasite Interactions in Wild Roses, Rust Fungi and Insects, and Speciation via Differential Host-Plant Use in the Tephritid Fly Tephritis conura are studied.

The results indicate that low levels of genetic capture of maternal nuclear DNA from other species occur within otherwise androgenetic lineages of Corbicula, indicating that the rare capture of genetic material from otherspecies may allow androgensetic lineage of CorBicula to mitigate the effects of deleterious mutation accumulation and increase potentially adaptive variation.

Phylogenetic analysis based on the morphology of viviparous freshwater clams of the family Sphaeriidae (Mollusca, Bivalvia, Veneroida)
The analysis supports a clade comprising all species of Musculium plus Pisidium as a monophyletic group and some clades that correspond to the subgeneric divisions of the three traditionally recognized sphaeriid genera are supported.
