Mitochondrial phylogeny and biogeographic history of the Greek endemic land-snail genus Codringtonia Kobelt 1898 (Gastropoda, Pulmonata, Helicidae).

High variation, deep clade divergences, many cryptic lineages, paraphyly at subgenus level, and sympatry of several new and formerly known lineages are revealed in the genus Euscorpius across the Mediterranean region.
Population genomics of the Asian tiger mosquito, Aedes albopictus: insights into the recent worldwide invasion
Using double‐digest Restriction site‐Associated DNA sequencing, a panel of ~58,000 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) based on 20 worldwide Ae.

Microsatellites and ~19,000 genome-wide single nucleotide polymorphisms support the monophyletic origin of all populations outside Africa, with the New World as the site of first colonization, and Bayesian analyses combined with multivariate analyses suggest that the Black Sea population is a remnant of an older population.
Tracking the return of Aedes aegypti to Brazil, the major vector of the dengue, chikungunya and Zika viruses
Based on the results, re-invasions from non-eradicated regions are the most likely scenario for the reappearance of Ae.
Animal Mitochondria, Positive Selection and Cyto-Nuclear Coevolution: Insights from Pulmonates
It appears that mtDNA evolution in pulmonates can escape from strict deleterious evolution suggested by the Muller’s ratchet effect.
Two new species of Euscorpius from Euboea Island, Greece (Scorpiones: Euscorpiidae)
Transgenic Aedes aegypti Mosquitoes Transfer Genes into a Natural Population
Evidently, rare viable hybrid offspring between the release strain and the Jacobina population are sufficiently robust to be able to reproduce in nature and highlight the importance of having in place a genetic monitoring program during releases to detect un-anticipated outcomes.
Recent History of Aedes aegypti: Vector Genomics and Epidemiology Records
Recent work on the population genetics of this mosquito is reviewed in efforts to reconstruct its recent (approximately 600 years) history and these findings are related to epidemiological records of occurrences of diseases transmitted by this species.
Resolving complex phylogeographic patterns in the Balkan Peninsula using closely related wall-lizard species as a model system.
