ABGD, Automatic Barcode Gap Discovery for primary species delimitation
Automatic Barcode Gap Discovery is fast, simple method to split a sequence alignment data set into candidate species that should be complemented with other evidence in an integrative taxonomic approach.
Large‐scale species delimitation method for hyperdiverse groups
The formalized strategy applied here outlines an effective and reproducible protocol for large‐scale species delimitation of hyperdiverse groups and identified 27 novel species hypotheses not linked to available species names in the literature.
A new operational classification of the Conoidea (Gastropoda)
A new genus-level classification of the Conoidea is presented, based on the molecular phylogeny of Puillandre et al. in the accompanying paper. Fifteen lineages are recognized and ranked as families
Species are hypotheses: avoid connectivity assessments based on pillars of sand
This study illustrates how the failure to recognize boundaries of evolutionary‐relevant unit leads to heavily biased estimates of connectivity, and reviews the conceptual framework within which species delimitation can be formalized as falsifiable hypotheses and how connectivity studies can feed integrative taxonomic work and vice versa.
Bioinformatic challenges for DNA metabarcoding of plants and animals
The bioinformatics tools available for DNA metabarcode of plants and animals are described, and others developed for DNA barcoding or microbial metabarcoding are revisited.
Molecular phylogeny and evolution of the cone snails (Gastropoda, Conoidea).
Genetic bottleneck in invasive species: the potato tuber moth adds to the list
It is found that the genetic homogenization in T. solanivora was among the strongest reported and discussed factors that can explain the success of invasive populations with low genetic diversity.
One, four or 100 genera? A new classification of the cone snails
A new classification for the genus Conus sensu lato is presented, based on molecular phylogenetic analyses of 329 species, to place all cone snails within a single family (Conidae) containing four genera—Conus, Conasprella, Profundiconus and Californiconus.
The contrasted evolutionary fates of deep-sea chemosynthetic mussels (Bivalvia, Bathymodiolinae)a
The data suggest that for deep-sea mussels, the high specialization to vent habitats provides ecological success in this harsh habitat but also brings the lineage to a kind of evolutionary dead end.
