Arthropod relationships revealed by phylogenomic analysis of nuclear protein-coding sequences
This work presents strongly supported results from likelihood, Bayesian and parsimony analyses of over 41 kilobases of aligned DNA sequence from 62 single-copy nuclear protein-coding genes from 75 arthropod species, providing a statistically well-supported phylogenetic framework for the largest animal phylum.
A Classification of Living and Fossil Genera of Decapod Crustaceans
This compilation is the first comprehensive estimate of taxonomic diversity within the entire Decapoda, listing all known families and genera organized by higher taxonomic groups and including estimates of the number of species in every genus.
Hierarchical analysis of mtDNA variation and the use of mtDNA for isopod (Crustacea: Peracarida: Isopoda) systematics
This study is the first survey of different regions of mitochondrial DNA in isopod crustaceans assessing sequence divergence and hence the usefulness of these regions to infer phylogeny at different hierarchical levels.
Phylogenetic relationships within the coral crab genus Carpilius (Brachyura, Xanthoidea, Carpiliidae) and of the Carpiliidae to other xanthoid crab families based on molecular sequence data.
Mitochondrial 12S- and 16S-rDNA gene fragments confirm the monophyly and distinct status of the family Carpiliidae.
Politolana wickstenae new species, a new cirolanid isopod from the Gulf of Mexico, and a review of the 'Conilera genus-group' of Bruce (1986)
Politolana wickstenae, a new species of cirolanid isopod inhabiting the continental slope (488-600 m) in the northern Gulf of Mexico is described and figured. The genus now contains 7 species, and is

This is a short “how to” guide focusing on the free-living marine and freshwater isopods: where they live and how to collect and preserve them.
A New Species of Stenetrium Haswell, 1881 (Crustacea : Peracarida : Isopoda : Asellota), from Navassa Island, Northern Caribbean Sea
The new species, S. kensleyi, is compared to S. serratum Hansen, 1905, the only congener known from the western Atlantic following recent revisions of the Stenetriidae, and to some members of the recently proposed genus Hansenium, with which it shares several characters.
Elthusa alvaradoensis Rocha-Ramírez, Chávez-López & Bruce, 2005 (Isopoda, Cymothoidae) parasitizing the inshore lizardfish, Synodus foetens (Linnaeus, 1766) on the continental shelf off central
The prevalence, fecundity, and size distribution of the isopod, Elthusa alvaradoensis, parasitizing the inshore lizardfish, Synodus foetens on the continental shelf off central Veracruz, Mexico, were studied and male parasites exhibit a positive allometric growth, while this is negative for females.
