Biogeography and speciation patterns of the golden orb spider genus Nephila (Araneae: Nephilidae) in Asia.


The molecular phylogeny of the globally distributed golden orb spider genus Nephila (Nephilidae) was reconstructed to infer its speciation history, with a focus on SE Asian/W Pacific species. Five Asian, two Australian, four African, and one American species were included in the phylogenetic analyses. Other species in Nephilidae, Araneidae, and… (More)
