A gleam in the dark: phylogenetic species delimitation in the confusing spring-snail genus Bythinella Moquin-Tandon, 1856 (Gastropoda: Rissooidea: Amnicolidae).
We re-assess the value of morphological specific descriptors within the spring-snail genus Bythinella by sequencing mitochondrial COI and nuclear ITS1 gene fragments. Taxonomic coverage represents 16Expand

Molecular phylogenies support multiple morphological reductions in the liverwort subclass Marchantiidae (Bryophyta).
The phylogeny of one of the putative basal-most group of land plants, the Marchantiidae, is estimated with morphological characters and with sequences of the nuclear (LSU) rDNA gene (first fourExpand

Genetic structure of the xerophilous bromeliad Pitcairnia geyskesii on inselbergs in French Guiana – a test of the forest refuge hypothesis
Inselbergs are isolated granitic rock outcrops that provide distinctive ecological conditions. In northern South America they rise above the surrounding rainforest. Among inselberg specialists,Expand

Species Delimitation In The Genus Bythinella (Mollusca: Caenogastropoda: Rissooidea): A First Attempt Combining Molecular And Morphometrical Data
Within the springsnail genus Bythinella, few discontinuous morphological characters allow to unambiguously delineate species-level taxa. Opinions on the alpha-taxonomy of the group are divergent,Expand

Molecular phylogeny in mytilids supports the wooden steps to deep-sea vents hypothesis.
Molecular data were used to study the diversity of mytilids associated with sunken-woods sampled in the Solomon Islands and discuss the 'wooden steps to deep-sea vent' hypothesis proposed by DistelExpand

Polymorphic microsatellites for the study of fragmented populations of Pitcairnia geyskesii L. B. Smith (Bromeliaceae), a specific saxicolous species of inselbergs in French Guiana
Pitcairnia geyskesii is a saxicolous bromeliad endemic to the granitic inselbergs of French Guiana and Surinam. Seven polymorphic microsatellite markers were characterized to investigate theExpand

The phylogenetic position of the 'living fossils' Neoglyphea and Laurentaeglyphea (Decapoda: Glypheidea).
The Glypheidea is a group of lobster-like decapods that appeared in the Triassic and that was thought to be extinct until 1975, when a specimen of the species Neoglyphea inopinata was caught off theExpand
