Earthworms are among the most abundant and ecologically important invasive species, and are therefore a good object for studying genetic processes in invasive populations. Aporrectodea caliginosa is one of the most widespread invasive earthworms in the temperate zone. It is believed to have dispersed from Europe to all continents except Antarctica. It is known that A. caliginosa consists of three genetic lineages, and genetic diversity is high both among and between them. We attempted to use… Expand

Genetic diversity of the Aporrectodea caliginosa complex in Russia
TLDR
This study made an attempt to review available data on the Aporrectodea caliginosa species complex studied based on the collection from Russia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan and demonstrated pigmentation intensity in this subspecies to vary to a significant degree. Expand
Phylogeography and genetic lineages of Aporrectodea rosea (Lumbricidae, Annelida)
TLDR
It is found that A. rosea significantly increased its range over the last two decades, now being found in West Siberia; genetic diversity there is low compared to European Russia and Belarus; the paleogeographic history of this species is thus more complex than it was thought earlier. Expand
Cryptic genetic lineages in Eisenia nordenskioldi pallida (Oligochaeta, Lumbricidae)
TLDR
A high number of cryptic lineages uncovered in the two subspecies call for a close examination of their status as potential species, possibly with the help of additional markers, and for additional molecular genetic investigation of either type specimen of these subspecies or of the topotypical populations. Expand
Contrasting phylogeographic patterns of earthworms (Crassiclitellata, Lumbricidae) on near-shore mediterranean islands
TLDR
Comparative phylogeography is discussed in the context of paleogeographic events affecting the Mediterranean in the Late Tertiary-Quaternary and biological traits of earthworms, with biparental sexual vs parthenogenetic reproduction as the main factor explaining them. Expand
Macro and micro-evolutionary processes within a complex of species, case study of the tropical invasive earthworm : pontoscolex corethrurus
TLDR
A bibliographic synthesis of 265 studies covering all subjects of knowledge on P. corethrurus showed that the r strategy and plasticity of this earthworm are the key characteristics which make it a successful invader in different habitats. Expand
Harmful or useful? A case study of the exotic peregrine earthworm morphospecies Pontoscolex corethrurus
TLDR
This review synthesizes 265 studies describing the distribution, morphology, biological and ecological traits of this morphospecies, as well as its impacts on soil conditions and communities and highlights the fact that data on P. corethrurus interactions with non-earthworm soil macrofauna are scarce. Expand
Morphotypes and genetic diversity of Dendrobaena schmidti (Lumbricidae, Annelida)
TLDR
The genetic diversity of D. schmidti is studied using mitochondrial (a fragment of the cytochrome oxidase I gene) and nuclear (internal ribosomal transcribed spacer 2) DNA to conclude that it consists of at least two species that have identical states of diagnostic characters, but differ in general appearance. Expand
Molecular differentiation of epigeic and anceic forms of Drawida ghilarovi Gates, 1969 (Moniligastridae, Clitellata) in the Russian Far East: Sequence data of two mitochondrial genes
TLDR
Molecular data for Drawida showed high genetic differentiation between epigeic and anecic using COI and 16S rRNA gene sequence data as well as the various phylogenetic relationships among the studied forms. Expand
Pinpointing cryptic borders: Fine-scale phylogeography and genetic landscape analysis of the Hormogaster elisae complex (Oligochaeta, Hormogastridae).
TLDR
The results indicate that limited active dispersal ability and ecological or biotic barriers could explain the isolation of the different cryptic lineages, which never co-occur. Expand
Earthworms (Oligochaeta: Lumbricidae) of Interior Alaska
TLDR
The authors' sampling, combined with specimens in the University of Alaska Museum, has documented four exotic species and one presumed native species of lumbricid earthworms in Interior Alaska. Expand

High genetic divergence of hormogastrid earthworms (Annelida, Oligochaeta) in the central Iberian Peninsula: evolutionary and demographic implications
TLDR
The data suggest that the evolutionary lineages for H. elisae s.s.l. originated between the late Miocene and the early Pleistocene, but that mtDNA genealogies coalesce on a more recent scale of a few thousand years. Expand
A vagrant clone in a peregrine species: Phylogeography, high clonal diversity and geographical distribution in the earthworm Aporrectodea trapezoides (Dugès, 1828)
TLDR
It is hypothesised that the peregrine lumbricid A. trapezoides may have also been introduced in other countries and that it could be a general-purpose genotype able to adapt to a wide range of niches. Expand
Phylogenetic assessment of the earthworm Aporrectodea caliginosa species complex (Oligochaeta: Lumbricidae) based on mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences.
TLDR
The species status of all these taxa are confirmed and two hitherto unrecognized Aporrectodea species in Corsica (France) are identified, and the presence of highly divergent lineages within A. caliginosa, A. trapezoides, and A. longa is shown, suggesting the existence of cryptic diversity within theseTaxa.

Earthworms, good indicators for palaeogeographical studies? Testing the genetic structure and demographic history in the peregrine earthworm Aporrectodea trapezoides (Dugès, 1828) in southern Europe
TLDR
This study aimed to test if widespread earthworm species are good indicators of geological changes by means of checking the population genetic structure at different levels (lineages, clades and populations), and showed that it was a ‘good’ the candidate for this kind of studies. Expand
Genetic diversity of Aporrectodea caliginosa from agricultural sites in Northeast Brandenburg, Germany
Summary Intraspecific genetic variability of the ubiquitous earthworm species Aporrectodea caliginosa (Savigny) was determined, annually for a period of 3 years, along a 151 km transect thatExpand
Diversification patterns in cosmopolitan earthworms: similar mode but different tempo.
TLDR
Light is shed on the spatial lineage diversification and cladogenesis of two widely-distributed cosmopolitan and invasive earthworms in their putative ancestral area of origin, the Western Palearctic, and a few populations in North America, showing that both species underwent a similar diversification from the Western Mediterranean plates to Northern Europe and the Iberian Peninsula, establishing their two main lineages. Expand
Opening a can of worms: unprecedented sympatric cryptic diversity within British lumbricid earthworms
TLDR
The aim was to examine the genetic structure of common earthworm species, to identify cryptic lineages or species that may be distinct ecotypes or biotypes (and hence confound current research based upon morphotypes) and to try to explain the massive cryptic diversity that eventually emerged. Expand
Cryptic diversity within the Nordenskiold's earthworm, Eisenia nordenskioldi subsp. nordenskioldi (Lumbricidae, Annelida)
TLDR
Phylogeographic patterns within the lineages may suggest that their distributions was not affected by Pleistocene glaciations, and, therefore, may be a useful source of information for biogeographic reconstructions of Northern Eurasia. Expand
Invasion Patterns of Lumbricidae Into the Previously Earthworm-free Areas of Northeastern Europe and the Western Great Lakes Region of North America
TLDR
Analysis of the macro-scale distributions of Lumbricidae species in northeastern Europe may provide important insights into the potential of invasive European earthworm species to spread in North America, and identify potentially invasive species. Expand
Invasive lumbricid earthworms of Kamchatka (Oligochaeta)
TLDR
It might be possible that the whole earthworm fauna of Kamchatka is of invasive origin, which makes it a good model for studying the effects of earthworm invasions into previously earthworm-free regions. Expand
