The genus Gammarus provides an excellent aquatic case supporting the hypothesis that ecological opportunities promote diversification and the habitat shift from saline to freshwater led to an increased diversification rate.
A molecular phylogeny of the genus Gammarus (Crustacea: Amphipoda) based on mitochondrial and nuclear gene sequences.

The isolation and complete characterization of Tlr elements are described, a family of approximately 30 micronuclear DNA sequences that are efficiently eliminated from the developing macronucleus that are confined to the Tetrahymena germline genome.
Toward understanding the distribution of Laurasian frogs: a test of Savage's biogeographical hypothesis using the genus Bombina.
Flexible omnivory in dikerogammarus villosus (Sowinsky, 1894) (Amphipoda) - amphipod pilot species project (ampis) report 5
The very flexible feeding modes of D. villosus, which make diet switches possible, form a trait that must be an important factor in the invasion success of this Ponto-Caspian gammaridean species, and may thus explain for a great deal its high ecosystem impact.
Identifying Chinese species of Gammarus （Crustacea： Amphipoda） using DNA barcoding
Diversification of low dispersal crustaceans through mountain uplift: a case study of Gammarus (Amphipoda: Gammaridae) with descriptions of four novel species
Most speciation events may have been driven by massive uplifting of the Luliang and Taihang mountains from the late Miocene to early Pliocene, and four new species are described.
A Two-Component Female-Produced Pheromone of the Spider Pholcus beijingensis
Behavioral data suggest that (E,E)-farnesyl acetate and hexadecyl acetate comprise a two-component female-produced sex pheromone in P. beijingensis, the first multicomponent phersomone found in spiders.
A survey of linyphiid spiders from Xishuangbanna, Yunnan Province, China (Araneae, Linyphiidae)
Eight new genera and 30 new species are described, including the male of Kaestneria bicultrata Chen & Yin, 2000 and the females of Asiagone perforata Tanasevitch, 2014 and Batueta similis Wunderlich & Song, 1995 are described for the first time.
