Strategies for microsatellite isolation: a review
The aim of the present paper is to review the various methods of microsatellite isolation with the purpose of providing useful guidelines in making appropriate choices among the large number of currently available options and to propose a fast and easy protocol which is a combination of different published methods.
Pillars of Hercules: is the Atlantic–Mediterranean transition a phylogeographical break?
Results point to a combined signature of vicariance, palaeoclimate fluctuation and life‐history traits on the Atlantic–Mediterranean phylogeographical patterns, suggesting organismal determinism may play a far less significant role than marine biogeographers have generally believed.

Molecular evidence suggests that vicariant speciation could be invoked to explain the early divergence of Eleginops maclovinus, a species previously included in the family Nototheniidae, which is now proposed as the closest sister group to all the rest of notothenioids apart from bovichtids.

Evidence is provided for a sharp phylogeographical break between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean for two (or possibly three) sparid species of the five investigated and the obtained results raise the question on which ecological/historical factors might have caused the observed discrepancy.

The results challenge the current understanding of the evolution of Antarctic notothenioids suggesting that the ecological opportunity that underlies this adaptive radiation is not linked to a single trait, but rather to a combination of freeze avoidance offered by AFGPs and subsequent exploitation of new habitats and open niches created by increased glacial and ice sheet activity.

The age of the radiation of notothenioid fishes appears to be too low to agree with this date of origin and might instead suggest a younger age (10-15 Mya), and the low level of detected mtDNA variation would agree with the traditional old-age estimate if an extremely slow rate of mtDNA evolution is postulated for this group.
Krill evolution and the Antarctic ocean currents: evidence of vicariant speciation as inferred by molecular data
The phylogenetic relationships of the Antarctic krill Euphausia superba, the key species in the Antarctic food web, and other Antarctic and sub-Antarctic cuphausiids have been investigated using the…

A review of results from population genetics studies, together with new molecular evidence, confirm the importance of physical barriers in reducing migration, thereby promoting speciation, at least in notothenioids.
Differential population structuring of two closely related fish species, the mackerel (Scomber scombrus) and the chub mackerel (Scomber japonicus), in the Mediterranean Sea
The genetic structures of both species showed asymmetric migration patterns and indicated population expansion and molecular variance analyses showed differential genetic structuring for these two closely related species.
Mitochondrial DNA reveals a mosaic pattern of phylogeographical structure in Atlantic and Mediterranean populations of anchovy (Engraulis encrasicolus).
