Assessing the root of bilaterian animals with scalable phylogenomic methods
A clear picture of animal relationships is a prerequisite to understand how the morphological and ecological diversity of animals evolved over time. Among others, the placement of the acoelomorphExpand

On the Phylogenetic Position of Rotifera – Have We Come Any Further?
Rotifers are bilateral symmetric animals belonging to Protostomia. The ultrastructure of the rotiferan trophi suggests that they belong to the Gnathifera, and ultrastructural similarities between theExpand

Population dynamics of American horseshoe crabs—historic climatic events and recent anthropogenic pressures
Populations of the American horseshoe crab, Limulus polyphemus, have declined, but neither the causes nor the magnitude are fully understood. In order to evaluate historic demography, variation at 12Expand

Dwarf male of symbion pandora (cycliophora)
This study clarifies the identity and development of the male in the life cycle of Symbion pandora. The male is not produced directly by the feeding stage, as previously thought, but arises as aExpand

A new species of Cycliophora from the mouthparts of the American lobster, Homarus americanus (Nephropidae, Decapoda)
Abstract The present study describes a new species of Cycliophora with the aid of light- and electron microscopy. The animals live attached or free-living on the mouth appendages of the AmericanExpand
