Sea-level fluctuations during the last glacial cycle
The last glacial cycle was characterized by substantial millennial-scale climate fluctuations, but the extent of any associated changes in global sea level (or, equivalently, ice volume) remainsExpand

The unholy trinity: taxonomy, species delimitation and DNA barcoding
Recent excitement over the development of an initiative to generate DNA sequences for all named species on the planet has in our opinion generated two major areas of contention as to how this ‘DNAExpand

Climate change and trace gases
Palaeoclimate data show that the Earth's climate is remarkably sensitive to global forcings. Positive feedbacks predominate. This allows the entire planet to be whipsawed between climate states. OneExpand

High rates of sea-level rise during the last interglacial period
Sea level during the last interglacial stood at least 4 m higher than at present, with evidence of short-term fluctuations of up to 10 m. A new continuous sea level record from the Red Sea and coralExpand

Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Concentration Across the Mid-Pleistocene Transition
A Change in the Air? Between around 1.2 million and 500,000 years ago, Earth's glacial cycle changed from one with a period of roughly 40,000 years to one with a period of about 100,000 years.Expand

7. Eustatic sea level during past interglacials
Eustatic sea-level variation is the primary index of global ice volume over glacial cycles. Here, we review recent studies of eustatic sea level during interglacial periods. This review includesExpand

Success of Parsimony in the Four‐Taxon Case: Long‐Branch Repulsion by Likelihood in the Farris Zone
The accuracy of phylogenetic methods is reinvestigated for the four‐taxon case with a two‐edge rate and a three‐edge rate. Unlike previous studies involving computer simulations, the two‐edge rateExpand

The demise of a phylum of protists: phylogeny of Myxozoa and other parasitic cnidaria.
The notion that members of the phylum Myxozoa Grassé, 1970 do not properly belong in classifications of protists has frequently been suggested because the infective spores of these parasites are notExpand

Higher level relationships of leeches (Annelida: Clitellata: Euhirudinea) based on morphology and gene sequences.
The evolutionary patterns of divergence of seven euhirudinean families were investigated by cladistic analysis of 33 euhirudinean species. Oligochaetes, Acanthobdella peledina, and branchiobdellidansExpand
