A stable isotope study of organic cycling and the ecology of an anchialine cave ecosystem
It was found that troglobitic (cave-limited) species res~ding In the water column a re cilpable of preferentially feeding on specific organic reservoirs in the food web.
Pancrustacean phylogeny in the light of new phylogenomic data: support for Remipedia as the possible sister group of Hexapoda.
This is the first time that a sister group relationship of Remipedia and Hexapoda has been inferred using a comprehensive phylogenomic data set that is based on EST data, and shows that selecting data subsets with increased overall signal can help to identify and prevent artifacts in phylogenetic analyses.

Aphroditiformia represents one of the most successful radiations of annelids, and is therefore an interesting model to understand morphological and functional evolution and is addressed through the analysis of four molecular markers and 87 morphological characters sampled across 127 species under the assumptions of parsimony and model‐based methods.
Drawn to the dark side: a molecular phylogeny of freshwater shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Atyidae) reveals frequent cave invasions and challenges current taxonomic hypotheses.
Phylogeny and historical biogeography of the cave‐adapted shrimp genus Typhlatya (Atyidae) in the Caribbean Sea and western Atlantic
Aim To infer phylogenetic relationships among five species of the cave‐adapted shrimp genus Typhlatya in order to test competing hypotheses of dispersal and colonization of the disjunct cave…

The biogeochemical diversity of inland blue holes in the Bahamas make them valuable as natural laboratories, repositories of microbial diversity, and analogs for stratified and sulfidic oceans present early in Earth’s history.
NEW SPECIES OF THE GENUS TYPHLATYA (DECAPODA: ATYIDAE) FROM ANCHIALINE CAVES IN MEXICO, THE BAHAMAS, AND HONDURAS
Three new species of the genus Typhlatya from anchialine caves in Mexico, the Bahamas, and Honduras are described, with the first species described from Central America found in Utila, one of the Honduras Bay Islands.
Ostracoda (Myodocopina, Cladocopina, Halocypridina) from Anchialine Caves in Bermuda
Pancrustacean Evolution Illuminated by Taxon-Rich Genomic-Scale Data Sets with an Expanded Remipede Sampling

Mapping key crustacean tagmosis patterns and developmental characters across the revised phylogeny suggests that the ancestral pancrustacean was relatively short-bodied, with extreme body elongation and anamorphic development emerging later in pancrustACEan evolution.
