Model-based multi-locus estimation of decapod phylogeny and divergence times.
Phylogenetic relationships among all of the major decapod infraorders have never been estimated using molecular data, while morphological studies produce conflicting results. In the present study,Expand
Testing hypotheses of population structuring in the Northeast Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea using the common cuttlefish Sepia officinalis
Population structuring in species inhabiting marine environments such as the Northeast Atlantic Ocean (NEA) and Mediterranean Sea (MS) has usually been explained based on past and present physicalExpand
Phylogenetic assessment of the earthworm Aporrectodea caliginosa species complex (Oligochaeta: Lumbricidae) based on mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences.
The Aporrectodea caliginosa species complex includes the most abundant earthworms in grasslands and agricultural ecosystems of the Paleartic region. Historically this complex consisted of theExpand
Pleistocene glaciation leaves deep signature on the freshwater crab Aegla alacalufi in Chilean Patagonia
Quaternary glacial cycles have played an important role in shaping the biodiversity in temperate regions. This is well documented in Northern Hemisphere, but much less understood for SouthernExpand
The tempo and mode of barnacle evolution.
Previous phylogenetic attempts at resolving barnacle evolutionary relationships are few and have relied on limited taxon sampling. Here we combine DNA sequences from three nuclear genes (18S, 28S andExpand
Gondwanan Radiation of the Southern Hemisphere Crayfishes (Decapoda: Parastacidae): Evidence from Fossils and Molecules
Aim The sequential break-up of Gondwana is thought to be a dominant process in the establishment of shared biota across landmasses of the Southern Hemisphere. Yet similar distributions are shared byExpand
Population genetics of microbial pathogens estimated from multilocus sequence typing (MLST) data.
The inference of population recombination (rho), population mutation (Theta), and adaptive selection is of great interest in microbial population genetics. These parameters can be efficientlyExpand
Extensive population subdivision of the cuttlefish Sepia officinalis (Mollusca: Cephalopoda) around the Iberian Peninsula indicated by microsatellite DNA variation
The Atlantic Ocean-Mediterranean Sea junction has been proposed as an important phylogeographical area on the basis of concordance in genetic patterns observed at allozyme, mtDNA and microsatelliteExpand
Evolution of Afrotropical freshwater crab lineages obscured by morphological convergence.
We use sequence data derived from six DNA gene loci to examine evolutionary and biogeographic affinities among all freshwater crab families. With an emphasis on the Afrotropical fauna that includesExpand
Global diversity of crabs (Aeglidae: Anomura: Decapoda) in freshwater
The freshwater anomuran crabs of the family Aeglidae are all restricted to southern South America occurring in Chile, Brazil, Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay, and Argentina. The family consists of aExpand
