Phylogeny of the Geometridae and the evolution of winter moths inferred from a simultaneous analysis of mitochondrial and nuclear genes.
Geometridae is one of the most diverse families within the Lepidoptera, comprising nine subfamilies. Winter moths, which have a unique life history, are found in three subfamilies. To examine theExpand

The escalation of defensive/offensive arms is ubiquitous in prey‐predator evolutionary interactions. However, there may be a geographically varying imbalance in the armaments of participating speciesExpand

Evolution and phylogenetic utility of alignment gaps within intron sequences of three nuclear genes in bumble bees (Bombus).
To test whether gaps resulting from sequence alignment contain phylogenetic signal concordant with those of base substitutions, we analyzed the occurrence of indel mutations upon a well-resolved,Expand

Interspecific variation in desiccation survival time of Aedes (Stegomyia) mosquito eggs is correlated with habitat and egg size
SummarySurvival times of eggs under three humidity conditions (42%, 68%, 88% RH) were investigated among Aedes (Stegomyia) mosquitoes from temperate and tropical zones (5 species and 20 geographicalExpand

We demonstrate experimentally that differences in genital characters impose a direct cost of interspecific copulation on two closely related carabid species, Carabus (Ohomopterus) maiyasanus and C.Expand

Incongruence of mitochondrial and nuclear gene trees in the Carabid beetles Ohomopterus.
We studied the molecular phylogeny of the carabid subgenus Ohomopterus (genus Carabus), using two mitochondrial (mt) DNA regions (16SrRNA and NADH dehydrogenase subunit 5) and three nuclear DNAExpand

Habitat stability and the larval mosquito community in treeholes and other containers on a temperate Island
The temporal fluctuation of water levels and the presence of mosquito larvae were investigated for four types of small container habitats (treeholes, bamboo stumps, cemetery stone vases, and cemeteryExpand

Genetic Differentiation of the Gobies Gymnogobius castaneus and G. taranetzi in the Region Surrounding the Sea of Japan as Inferred from a Mitochondrial Gene Genealogy
Abstract The phylogenetic relationships between gobies of the genus Gymnogobius were analyzed using mitochondrial cytochrome b gene sequences, focusing on the species currently classified as G.Expand

Application of RAD-based phylogenetics to complex relationships among variously related taxa in a species flock.
Restriction site-associated DNA (RAD) sequences from entire genomes can be used to resolve complex phylogenetic problems. However, the processed data matrix varies depending on the strategies used toExpand
