A review on the state of the biodiversity knowledge on Iran’s southern seas: introducing a methodology to evaluate the validity of the reported cases
High maritime activities in the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman as the major waterways for oil and gas transport and the lack of a documented database on total taxa diversity require greaterExpand
Kingdom Chromista and its eight phyla: a new synthesis emphasising periplastid protein targeting, cytoskeletal and periplastid evolution, and ancient divergences
The origin, evolutionary diversification, and reasons for making chromists one kingdom despite highly divergent cytoskeletons and trophic modes are discussed, including improved explanations for periplastid/chloroplast protein targeting, derlin evolution, and ciliary/cytoskeletal diversification.

Biopollution by Invasive Marine Non-Indigenous Species: A Review of Potential Adverse Ecological Effects in a Changing Climate
The scientific evidence gathered and summarized in this review suggests that effective management actions should be put in place in order to control introductions of species in new areas, and to prevent the disruption of the dynamic ecological equilibria in the receiving environment. Expand
Efficiency of sanitary management of litter in Eimeria spp. control in poultry housing of Western Paraná, Brazil.
Evaluated litter treatments in the Western region of Paraná, Brazil, which adopts sanitary management to control Salmonellosis showed that in litter where fermentation was adopted, the efficiency to control the sporulation of Eimeria spp. Expand
An endocannabinoid catabolic enzyme FAAH and its paralogs in an early land plant reveal evolutionary and functional relationship with eukaryotic orthologs
The identified nine orthologs of FAAH in the moss Physcomitrella patens with amidase signature and catalytic triad and identified that a true ‘dynamic paddle’ that is responsible for tighter regulation of FAAh is recent in vertebrates and absent or not fully emerged in plants and non-vertebrates.

Deep Evolutionary History of the Phox and Bem1 (PB1) Domain Across Eukaryotes
This study finds eight PB1 domain-containing protein families in plants, along with four each in Protozoa and Fungi and three families in Chromista, and identifies novel PB1 families, which provides an evolutionary basis to understand their diverse functional interactions. Expand
Isospora oliveirai n. sp. (Chromista: Miozoa: Eimeriidae) from the Greenish Schiffornis Schiffornis virescens (Lafresnaye, 1838) (Passeriformes: Tyranni: Tityridae) in South America
I. oliveirai is considered as new to science and the first coccidian species recorded from Tityridae, and molecular analysis at the COI gene exhibited similarity of 97% with Isospora serinuse. Expand
New Record of Charophytes (Characeae, Charophyta) from Socotra Island, Indian Ocean, Yemen
The charophyte flora from Socotra Island, Indian Ocean, studied for the first time from streams waterbodies that distributed at the northern part of the Island. The recognized charophyte taxa wereExpand
Coccidia of Columbiformes: a taxonomic review of its Eimeriidae species and Eimeria columbinae n. sp. from Columbina talpacoti (Temminck, 1809) from Brazil
A new species of Eimeria is morphologically and molecularly identified by the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (COI) gene and by the 18S small subunit ribosomal RNA (18S) gene from the ruddy ground-dove Columbina talpacoti in the Médio Paraíba region of the State of Rio de Janeiro, southeastern Brazil.

The finding of Avispora bubonis (Cawthorn, Stockdale, 1981) indicates that transmission of coccidians from the New World to the Old World may be occurring, potentially through dispersion by Bubo scandiacus through Arctic regions or by means of anthropic activities, and/or through other unknown mechanisms.

Development and myogenesis of the vermiform Buddenbrockia (Myxozoa) and implications for cnidarian body plan evolution
The polarised primary body axis represents an ancient feature present in the last common ancestor of Cnidaria and Bilateria and may represent convergent evolution to a bilaterian condition. Expand
Nearly complete rRNA genes assembled from across the metazoan animals: effects of more taxa, a structure-based alignment, and paired-sites evolutionary models on phylogeny reconstruction.
It is found that systematic elimination of approximately 6% of the sequences, including the divergent or unstably placed sequences of cephalopods, arrowworm, symphylan and pauropod myriapods, and of myzostomid and nemertodermatid worms, led to a tree that supported EcdysozoA, Lophotrochozoa, Protostomia, and Bilateria.

Ribosomal RNA genes and deuterostome phylogeny revisited: more cyclostomes, elasmobranchs, reptiles, and a brittle star.
The rRNA data still fail to resolve the relations among the major groups of deuterostomes and of gnathostomes (chondrichthyans, lungfishes, coelacanth, actinopterygians, amphibians, and amniotes), partly because tunicates and lungf fishes are rogue taxa that disrupt the tree. Expand
A revised six‐kingdom system of life

  • 1998
A revised six‐kingdom system of life is presented, down to the level of infraphylum, modified in the light of molecular phylogenetic evidence that Myxozoa are actually Animalia, not Protozoa, and that mesozoans are related to bilaterian animals. Expand
A Higher Level Classification of All Living Organisms
We present a consensus classification of life to embrace the more than 1.6 million species already provided by more than 3,000 taxonomists’ expert opinions in a unified and coherent, hierarchicallyExpand
Multigene phylogeny resolves deep branching of Amoebozoa.
The monophyly of Amoebozoa is unequivocally established, showing a primary dichotomy between the previously contested subphyla Lobosa and Conosa, and phylogenetic features are entirely congruent with the most recent major amoEBozoan classification. Expand
