Crustacean phylogeny inferred from 18S rDNA
Resolution concerning issues of higher-order crustacean phylogeny remains elusive even after years of thorough morphological and palaeontological scrutiny. Surprisingly, there is as yet no consensusExpand

THE MONOPHYLY OF BRACHYURAN CRABS: A PHYLOGENETIC STUDY BASED ON 18S rRNA
A molecular approach was used to test hypotheses about the phylogeny of selected brachyuran crabs. Partial 18S ribosomal (r) RNA and rDNA sequences, ranging in length from 950 to 1,779 nucleotides,Expand

Peracarid monophyly and interordinal phylogeny inferred from nuclear small-subunit ribosomal DNA sequences (Crustacea: Malacostraca: Peracarida)
ABSTRACT Peracarids are a large group of malacostracan crustaceans whose systematics and phylogeny are uncertain. The present phylogenetic study of peracarids is, to our knowledge, the first thatExpand

Phylogenetic Study of Cirripedes and Selected Relatives (Thecostraca) Based on 18s Rdna Sequence Analysis
ABSTRACT Sequence data from PCR-amplified 18S rDNA were used to infer phylogenetic relationships among the thecostracan crustacean taxa Ascothoracida (Ulophysema oeresundense), AcrothoracicaExpand

BRANCHIOPOD MONOPHYLY AND INTERORDINAL PHYLOGENY INFERRED FROM 18S RIBOSOMAL DNA
Abstract Sequence data for the complete 18S rDNA gene were used to address unresolved phylogenetic issues concerning branchiopod evolution. Representative taxa include all 8 extant orders ofExpand

Phylogeny of Selected Maxillopodan and Other Crustacean Taxa Based on 18S Ribosomal Nucleotide Sequences: A Preliminary Analysis
Relationships among the following taxa were examined based on 18S ribosomal RNA and DNA nucleotide sequences: Branchiopoda (Branchinecta packardi), Ostracoda (two podocopid species), BranchiuraExpand

PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF CRUSTACEANS WITH FOLIACEOUS LIMBS: AN 18S rDNA STUDY OF BRANCHIOPODA, CEPHALOCARIDA, AND PHYLLOCARIDA
ABSTRACT Sequence data for the small-subunit, 18S ribosomal-DNA gene (1,800+ nucleotides), representing 10 crustaceans (three branchiopods, a cephalocarid, a phyllocarid, a hoplocarid, a syncarid, aExpand

Species boundaries in Zausodes-complex species (Copepoda : Harpacticoida : Harpacticidae) from the north-eastern Gulf of Mexico
Before 1999, the harpacticoid copepod species Zausodes arenicolus Wilson, 1932 was the subject of several ecological studies. Based on morphological evaluations of specimens from the north-easternExpand

The mitochondrial genomes of Amphiascoides atopus and Schizopera knabeni (Harpacticoida: Miraciidae) reveal similarities between the copepod orders Harpacticoida and Poecilostomatoida.
Members of subclass Copepoda are abundant, diverse, and-as a result of their variety of ecological roles in marine and freshwater environments-important, but their phylogenetic interrelationships areExpand
