Biogeography of the Indo-Australian Archipelago
The conservation significance of the IAA is discussed and the need for cross-taxon comparative studies using newly developed analytical approaches well suited to the challenges of historical inference in this region is highlighted. Expand
More evidence of speciation and dispersal across the Antarctic Polar Front through molecular systematics of Southern Ocean Limatula (Bivalvia: Limidae)
The vicariance hypothesis that the APF is a barrier for geneflow favouring speciation processes in the Southern Ocean has to be questioned. Expand
Regional scale speciation reveals multiple invasions of freshwater in Palaemoninae (Decapoda)
Ashelby, C.W., Page, T.J., De Grave, S., Hughes, J.M. & Johnson, M.L. (2012) Regional scale speciation reveals multiple invasions of freshwater in Palaemoninae (Decapoda). —Zoologica Scripta, 41,Expand
Shrimps Down Under: Evolutionary Relationships of Subterranean Crustaceans from Western Australia (Decapoda: Atyidae: Stygiocaris)
The findings suggest that Stygiocaris and Typhlatya may descend from a common ancestor that lived in the coastal marine habitat of the ancient Tethys Sea, and were subsequently separated by plate tectonic movements. Expand
Historical transoceanic dispersal of a freshwater shrimp: the colonization of the South Pacific by the genus Paratya (Atyidae)
Aim  To infer the phylogenetic relationships within the freshwater shrimp genus Paratya Miers, 1882 (Atyidae) and to use these data to answer biogeographical questions about the location, timing andExpand
An island in the stream: Australia's place in the cosmopolitan world of Indo-West Pacific freshwater shrimp (Decapoda: Atyidae: Caridina).
Investigation of phylogenetic and biogeographic relationships among Australian freshwater shrimp from the genus Caridina H. Milne Edwards, 1837 and congeners from potential source populations throughout the Indo-West Pacific region indicates a diverse origin of the Australian freshwater fauna. Expand
The taxonomic feedback loop: symbiosis of morphology and molecules
Here, we relate the ongoing taxonomic story of a species complex of problematic, cryptic Australian freshwater shrimp (Atyidae; Caridina) to highlight the relative strength and utility of differentExpand
Drawn to the dark side: a molecular phylogeny of freshwater shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Atyidae) reveals frequent cave invasions and challenges current taxonomic hypotheses.
The data indicate that the established classification of the Atyidae is in need of substantial taxonomic revision at all taxonomic levels, and suggest a new suprageneric systematization of atyids, particularly in the most speciose genus, Caridina. Expand
Biogeographic history of an Australian freshwater shrimp, Paratya australiensis (Atyidae): the role life history transition in phylogeographic diversification
The extensive divergence in the evolutionary history of the freshwater shrimp Paratya australiensis has most likely arisen through a number of independent amphidromy–freshwater life history transitions, rather than via historical isolation of Amphidromy populations. Expand
Human effects on ecological connectivity in aquatic ecosystems: Integrating scientific approaches to support management and mitigation.
Using a series of case studies, it is shown that the insight needed to understand the nature and implications of connectivity, and to underpin conservation and management, is best achieved via data synthesis from multiple analytical approaches. Expand
