As Time Goes by: A Simple Fool's Guide to Molecular Clock Approaches in Invertebrates*
A judicious use of molecular clock analyses in evolutionary studies of invertebrates is encouraged by demonstrating their great potential on the one hand and (often-manageable) problems and pitfalls on the other hand.
Salenthydrobia gen. nov. (Rissooidea: Hydrobiidae): a potential relict of the Messinian salinity crisis

Ecological and biogeographical data for S. ferrerii strongly support a correlation between its origin and the MSC, and its phylogenetic relationships, and the validity of the proposed local molecular clock rate are discussed.
Ancient Lake Ohrid: biodiversity and evolution
An assessment of the fauna and flora of Lake Ohrid confirms that the lake harbours an incredible endemic biodiversity, probably the most diverse lake in the world, taking surface area into account.
Pushing short DNA fragments to the limit: Phylogenetic relationships of 'hydrobioid' gastropods (Caenogastropoda: Rissooidea).
The solute carrier family SLC10: more than a family of bile acid transporters regarding function and phylogenetic relationships
Based on the high structural homology between ASBT and SOAT, pharmacological inhibitors of the ASBT, which are currently being tested in clinical trials for cholesterol-lowering therapy, should be evaluated for their cross-reactivity with SOAT.

It is speculated that the invasion of Dreissena rostriformis bugensis occurred through the Main-Danube Canal – a pathway that is becoming increasingly recognized as a southern corridor for the potential movement of non-indigenous aquatic species between Eastern and Western Europe.
Old fossils–young species: evolutionary history of an endemic gastropod assemblage in Lake Malawi

It is argued that severe drops in the lake level of Lake Malawi in the Pleistocene offer a potential explanation for this pattern and challenge previously established phylogenetic relationships within the genus by revealing parallel evolution and providing evidence that the endemic Lanistes species are not restricted to the lake proper but are present throughout the Malawi Rift.
Cytochrome oxidase I-based phylogenetic relationships among the Pomatiopsidae, Hydrobiidae, Rissoidae and Truncatellidae (Gastropoda: Caenogastropoda: Rissoacea)

Infraspecific mitochondrial sequence diversity in Hydrobia ulvae and Hydrobia ventrosa (Hydrobiidae: Rissooidea: Gastropoda): Do their different life histories affect biogeographic patterns and gene…
Differences in dispersal modes and gene flow could be partly due to differences in type of early ontogeny and quantitative differences in passive dispersal, but the fact that H. ulvae is a marine species with high tolerance to environmental stress and therefore less sensitive to migration barriers than H. ventrosa may better explain these differences.
