We used 276 cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI, 645 bp) and a subset of 84 16S large ribosomal subunit (16S, 451 bp) sequences to evaluate geographic patterns of genetic variation in 24 populations of the endemic Hawaiian land snail Succinea caduca spanning its range on six islands. Haplotype networks, gene tree topologies, pairwise molecular divergence and FST matrices suggest substantial geographic genetic structuring and complex dispersal patterns. Low nucleotide diversity and low pairwise… 
Strong genetic structure and signs of population bottlenecks in the land snail Humboldtiana durangoensis in the Sierra Madre Occidental of Western Mexico
TLDR
The genetic structure and demographic history of the endemic land snail Humboldtiana durangoensis within this mountain range is estimated, indicating that both geographic regions experienced a drastic reduction in their effective population size probably associated with the Pleistocene climatic changes.
Phylogeography of the widespread Caribbean spiny orb weaver Gasteracantha cancriformis
TLDR
The authors' findings revealed a single widespread species of Gasteracantha throughout the Caribbean, G. cancriformis, while suggesting two recently divergent mainland populations that may represent separate species, diverging linages, or geographically isolated demes.
Moisture variables, and not temperature, are responsible for climate filtering and genetic bottlenecks in the South African endemic terrestrial mollusc Prestonella (Orthalicoidea)
TLDR
The genetic variation within two species of the rare terrestrial snail genus Prestonella, an inhabitant of rocky areas along water courses in the southern Great Escarpment of South Africa, is assessed, and principal components anaylsis of climatic variables derived from two databases indicates that genetic diversity of the populations is correlated to moisture-related Climatic variables.
Land Snail Models in Island Biogeography: A Tale of Two Snails*
TLDR
Important phylogenetic lessons are emerging from studies of island snails and such studies will eventually allow estimation of ages of species groups, speciation rates, timing of the processes involved in community assembly, and other dynamics, all of which are important contributions to the overall understanding of evolution.
COLONIZATION HISTORY AND POPULATION GENETICS OF THE COLOR‐POLYMORPHIC HAWAIIAN HAPPY‐FACE SPIDER THERIDION GRALLATOR (ARANEAE, THERIDIIDAE)
TLDR
The finding of low genetic diversity at the youngest site coupled with the very high diversity of haplotypes on the slightly older substrates that are highly dissected by recent volcanism suggests that the mosaic structure of the landscape may play an important role in allowing differentiation of the adaptive color polymorphism.
Genetic Consequences of Pleistocene Sea-Level Change on Hawaiian Megalagrion Damselflies.
TLDR
The genetic consequences of fluctuating island areas and connectivity using microsatellite analysis of 2 widespread, endemic Hawaiian damselflies suggests that Pleistocene fluctuations in sea level alternated between creating land bridges that facilitated gene flow between once and future islands, and ocean channels that inhibited dispersal.
Comparative genetic structure and demographic history in endemic galapagos weevils.
TLDR
The future exploration of hybridization between the introduced and highland endemic species on Santa Cruz is proposed, especially given the expansion of the introduced species into the highlands, the sensitivity to past climatic variation detected in highland populations, and the potentially threatened state of single-island endemics.
Evolutionary genomics of endangered Hawaiian tree snails (Achatinellidae: Achatinellinae) for conservation of adaptive capacity
TLDR
This study clarifies evolutionary relationships within this model system for adaptive radiation, forming the basis for conservation strategies such as translocation, captive rearing, and hybridization trials to prevent the loss of capacity to adapt to rapidly changing environmental conditions.
Colonization history, ecological shifts and diversification in the evolution of endemic Galápagos weevils
TLDR
The phylogeny proposes one intra‐island origin for Galapaganus endemics, but monophyly tests suggest a larger contribution of in‐situ speciation on older islands, and patterns of diversification rate variation on older and younger islands correspond to the volcanic activity or remnants of such activity, while the pattern of independent evolution of restricted habitat preferences in different islands suggests that habitat shifts could also have contributed to species diversity in Galap Paganus.
Molecular biogeography and diversification of the endemic terrestrial fauna of the Hawaiian Islands

TLDR
While molecular studies on Hawaiian fauna have burgeoned since the mid-1990s, much remains unknown, and among multi-island species studied, complex patterns of diversification are exhibited, reflecting heightened dispersal potential.

Population structure, history and gene flow in a group of closely related land snails: genetic variation in Partula from the Society Islands of the Pacific
TLDR
The results suggest that past events as well as ongoing drift and selection may have been important in affecting patterns of variation in Society Island Partula.
Islands within an island: phylogeography and conservation genetics of the endangered Hawaiian tree snail Achatinella mustelina
TLDR
Genetic data were used to define evolutionarily significant units for conservation purposes including decisions regarding placement of predator exclusion fences, captive propagation, re‐introduction and translocation in certain areas where forest cover is presently fragmented.
Influence of volcanic activity on the population genetic structure of Hawaiian Tetragnatha spiders: fragmentation, rapid population growth and the potential for accelerated evolution
TLDR
It is suggested that population subdivision and expansion can occur across small spatial and temporal scales, which may facilitate the rapid spread of new character states, leading to speciation as hypothesized by H. L. Carson 30 years ago.

TLDR
The native land‐snail fauna of the Hawaiian islands was investigated from a combined perspective of ecological and historical, vicariant, and dispersalist biogeography, showing that island area, per se, had the strongest influence on numbers of species.
The evolution of mitochondrial DNA in Partula
TLDR
There is no detectable association between the distribution of mitochondrial genotypes and the occurrence of dextral or sinistral populations, confirming that chirality does not constitute a genetic barrier in P. suturalis.

TLDR
The nDNA phylogeny corroborates the hypothesis of allopatric divergence and multiple invasions, and when compared with mtDNA patterns, suggests that interspecific hybridization is a persistent feature of the history of Laupala.
Speciation and phylogeography of Hawaiian terrestrial arthropods

TLDR
The results suggest that the oldest divergences of Orsonwelles spiders (on Kauai) go back about 4 million years, and the monophyly of the genus Orson welles is strongly supported.
