Patterns of genetic structure among Hawaiian corals of the genus Pocillopora yield clusters of individuals that are compatible with morphology.
Six variable sequence markers are developed and analyzed to find out species boundaries in Hawaiian corals of the genus Pocillopora: the putative mitochondrial control region; a recently discovered,Expand

Patterns of septal biomineralization in Scleractinia compared with their 28S rRNA phylogeny: a dual approach for a new taxonomic framework
A molecular phylogeny of the Scleractinia is reconstructed from approximately 700 nucleotides of the 5′end of the 28S rDNA obtained from 40 species. A comparison of molecular phylogenic trees withExpand

Haplowebs as a graphical tool for delimiting species: a revival of Doyle's "field for recombination" approach and its application to the coral genus Pocillopora in Clipperton
BackgroundUsual methods for inferring species boundaries from molecular sequence data rely either on gene trees or on population genetic analyses. Another way of delimiting species, based on a viewExpand

Evolutionary relationships of euthyneuran gastropods (Mollusca): a cladistic re-evaluation of morphological characters
Morphological characters of the Euthyneura available from the literature were re-evaluated in terms of terminology and primary homology. A total of 77 characters and 75 taxa were retained in a dataExpand

Phase determination from direct sequencing of length‐variable DNA regions
For diploid organisms, haplotype determination usually requires sequencing cloned polymerase chain reaction (PCR) products or comparing the genotypes of several individuals. We found out that phaseExpand

Phylogeny of the Megascolecidae and Crassiclitellata (Annelida, Oligochaeta): combined versus partitioned analysis using nuclear (28S) and mitochondrial (12S, 16S) rDNA
Chez les oligochetes megascolecoides, une analyse de l'ADNr nucleaire (28S) et mitochondrial (12S et 16S), utilisant la parcimonie et la vraisemblance, le soutien des partitions et les tests de tauxExpand

The 'evolutionary signal' of homoplasy in protein-coding gene sequences and its consequences for a priori weighting in phylogeny.
To analyse independently homoplasy for the six possible types of substitution (i.e., A-G, C-T, A-C, A-T, C-G and G-T) at each of the three codon-positions of the cytochrome b gene, two approachesExpand

The mitochondrial genome of Pocillopora (Cnidaria: Scleractinia) contains two variable regions: the putative D-loop and a novel ORF of unknown function.
The complete mitochondrial genomes of two individuals attributed to different morphospecies of the scleractinian coral genus Pocillopora have been sequenced. Both genomes, respectively 17,415 andExpand

Mitochondrial sequences of Seriatopora corals show little agreement with morphology and reveal the duplication of a tRNA gene near the control region
The taxonomy of corals of the genus Seriatopora has not previously been studied using molecular sequence markers. As a first step toward a re-evaluation of species boundaries in this genus,Expand

New clades of euthyneuran gastropods (Mollusca) from 28S rRNA sequences.
Recent morphological and molecular results on phylogeny of euthyneuran gastropods, which include opisthobranchs and pulmonates, have greatly diminished previous supposed resolution of theirExpand
