Biogeography of the Indo-Australian Archipelago
The extraordinary species richness and endemism of the Indo-Australian Archipelago (IAA) exists in one of the most geologically dynamic regions of the planet. The provenance of its biota has beenExpand

Escalation and trophic specialization drive adaptive radiation of freshwater gastropods in ancient lakes on Sulawesi, Indonesia
Species flocks in ancient lakes have long been appreciated as ideal model systems for the study of speciation and adaptive processes. We here present data from a new invertebrate model system withExpand

Anatomy of an adaptive radiation: a unique reproductive strategy in the endemic freshwater gastropod Tylomelania (Cerithioidea: Pachychilidae) on Sulawesi, Indonesia and its biogeographical
The patterns of adaptive radiations in ancient lakes provide valuable clues to mechanisms of speciation and adaptation. In contrast to vertebrate radiations, for instance in fishes or finches,Expand

Molecular phylogenetic evidence that the Chinese viviparid genus Margarya (Gastropoda: Viviparidae) is polyphyletic
We investigated the phylogeny of the viviparid genus Margarya, endemic to Yunnan, China, using two mitochondrial gene fragments (COI and 16S rRNA). The molecular phylogeny based on the combinedExpand

Molecular biogeography and phylogeography of the freshwater fauna of the Indo-Australian Archipelago
Th e Indo-Australian Archipelago (IAA ) houses one of the highest levels of species richness and endemism in the world, encompassing four of the world’s 25 biodiversity ‘hotspots’, which coalesceExpand

Freshwater shrimp–sponge association from an ancient lake
Shrimp–sponge associations occur frequently in marine ecosystems, serving as model systems for the evolution of eusociality. Here, we describe the first known instance of such association inExpand

Ancient lakes as hotspots of diversity: a morphological review of an endemic species flock of Tylomelania (Gastropoda: Cerithioidea: Pachychilidae) in the Malili lake system on Sulawesi, Indonesia
The viviparous freshwater gastropod Tylomelania (Caenogastropoda: Cerithioidea: Pachychilidae) endemic to the Indonesian island Sulawesi has radiated extensively in two ancient lake systems. We hereExpand
