The legacy of a vanished sea: a high level of diversification within a European freshwater amphipod species complex driven by 15 My of Paratethys regression
The formation of continental Europe in the Neogene was due to the regression of the Tethys Ocean and of the Paratethys Sea. The dynamic geology of the area and repetitious transitions between marineExpand

Origin of the Lake Ohrid gammarid species flock: ancient local phylogenetic lineage diversification
Aim Lake Ohrid is the oldest existing lake in Europe, dating back to the Tertiary. Given its surface area and the adjusted endemism rate, it seems to hold the greatest biodiversity of any ancientExpand

Europe-wide reassessment of Dictyocoela (Microsporidia) infecting native and invasive amphipods (Crustacea): molecular versus ultrastructural traits
Microsporidia are common parasites infecting animals and protists. They are specifically common pathogens of amphipods (Crustacea, Malacostraca), with Dictyocoela spp. being particularly frequent andExpand

Revisiting the phylogeography of Asellus aquaticus in Europe: insights into cryptic diversity and spatiotemporal diversification
Summary Pleistocene glaciations affected the present-day distribution and genetic diversity of animal species in Europe. Deep genetic subdivisions observed in European populations of theExpand

DNA barcode reference libraries for the monitoring of aquatic biota in Europe: Gap-analysis and recommendations for future work.
Effective identification of species using short DNA fragments (DNA barcoding and DNA metabarcoding) requires reliable sequence reference libraries of known taxa. Both taxonomically comprehensiveExpand

Neogene paleogeography provides context for understanding the origin and spatial distribution of cryptic diversity in a widespread Balkan freshwater amphipod
Background The Balkans are a major worldwide biodiversity and endemism hotspot. Among the freshwater biota, amphipods are known for their high cryptic diversity. However, little is known about theExpand

Cryptic invasion of Baltic lowlands by freshwater amphipod of Pontic origin
Gammarus varsoviensis is morphologically close to G. lacustris, with which it is often misidentified. Geographic range of G. varsoviensis includes Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus andExpand

High species richness of Northwest Pacific deep-sea amphipods revealed through DNA barcoding
Abstract Although deep sea has become a subject of intense studies in the recent years, our knowledge of the diversity of benthic organisms, especially at the molecular level, is far from complete.Expand

Contact Zones, Range Boundaries, and Vertical Distribution of Three Epigean Gammarids (Amphipoda) in the Sudeten and Carpathian Mountains (Poland)
This paper analyses contact zones, range boundaries, and the vertical distribution of three epigean species of Gammarus in the ca. 1200 km long chains of the Sudeten Mountains and the CarpathianExpand
