We assessed evolutionary relationships among Hawaiian cave-adapted isopods using a maximum-likelihood criterion to analyze cytochrome oxidase I nucleotide sequences. Results support morphological data that two genera of philosciid isopods have invaded caves independently in the islands. In the genus Littorophiloscia, a sister relationship between a surface-dwelling species, L. hawaiiensis, and an undescribed cave species was corroborated. This evidence, along with the known parapatric… Expand
Evolution of cave living in Hawaiian Schrankia (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) with description of a remarkable new cave species
TLDR
This is the first example of an apparently cave-adapted species that occurs in caves on two separate Hawaiian islands and it is suggested that this normally cave-limited species is able to colonize other, geographically separated caves via above-ground dispersal. Expand
Recent divergence with gene flow in Tennessee cave salamanders (Plethodontidae: Gyrinophilus) inferred from gene genealogies
TLDR
Results of coalescent‐based analysis of the distribution of haplotypes among groups reject the allopatric speciation model and support continuous or recurrent genetic exchange during divergence, strongly favour the hypothesis that Tennessee cave salamanders originated from spring salamander via divergence with gene flow. Expand
Biogeography, phylogeny, and morphological evolution of central Texas cave and spring salamanders
TLDR
The evolutionary history of this group of spring- and cave-dwelling salamanders reflects patterns of intermittent isolation and gene flow influenced by complex hydrogeologic dynamics that are characteristic of karst regions. Expand
Increased molecular divergence of two endemic Trachelipus (Isopoda, Oniscidea) species from Greece reveals patterns not congruent with current taxonomy
TLDR
A more comprehensive phylogenetic study at a population level is deemed necessary for understanding the divergence of Trachelipus lineages. Expand
Unique, Ancient Stygobiont Clade of Hydrobiidae (Truncatelloidea) in Bulgaria: the Origin of Cave Fauna
TLDR
The data support the “climatic-relict” hypothesis for the speciation of these taxa, assuming that surface ancestors colonized the caves and, after extinction of the surface population, cave populations evolved in allopatry. Expand
Lack of taxonomic differentiation in an apparently widespread freshwater isopod morphotype (Phreatoicidea: Mesamphisopidae: Mesamphisopus) from South Africa.
TLDR
Variation at 12 allozyme loci, phylogenetic analyses of 600 bp of a COI mtDNA fragment and morphometric comparisons are used to determine whether 15 populations are conspecific, and, if not, to elucidate their evolutionary relationships. Expand
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of Australian arid-zone oniscidean isopods (Crustacea : Haloniscus) reveals strong regional endemicity and new putative species
TLDR
A molecular phylogenetic analysis of the oniscidean genus Haloniscus showed results consistent with a relictualisation hypothesis of widespread populations from across South Australia to Western Australia with subsequent geographic isolation and diversification of new species within habitats. Expand
Evolution and diversification of the forest and hypogean ground-beetle genus Trechus in the Canary Islands.
TLDR
Results show two main lineages in the Canaries: one comprising two sister groups with species from the laurel forest of La Gomera and Tenerife, and the other containing the single species from Gran Canaria and a species complex in the four western islands including two troglobites. Expand
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. Expand
Radiating in a river: systematics, molecular genetics and morphological differentiation of viviparous freshwater gastropods endemic to the Kaek River, central Thailand (Cerithioidea, Pachychilidae)
TLDR
Recent diversification combined with ecological separation and trophic specialization parallels conditions found, albeit on a more specious level, in the lacustrine species flock of the closely related pachychilid genus Tylomelania, which is endemic to ancient lakes on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi.

SPECIATIONAL HISTORY IN A DIVERSE CLADE OF HABITAT‐SPECIALIZED SPIDERS (ARANEAE: NESTICIDAE: NESTICUS): INFERENCES FROM GEOGRAPHIC‐BASED SAMPLING

  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1997
TLDR
Analysis of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequences for a sample of individuals from 81 populations representing 28 Nesticus species indicate that considerable genetic divergence exists within and among currently recognized morphological species, and evidence to suggest that cryptic phylogenetic lineages exist within some morphologically continuous units.

Multiple cave invasions by species of the planthopper genus Oliarus in Hawaii (Homoptera: Fulgoroidea: Cixiidae)☆
TLDR
Morphological evidence suggests that each of the seven cavernicolous Oliarus species from Hawaii represents a separate, independent adaptive shift to underground environments, and potential relationships to the extant epigean species are discussed. Expand

MOLECULAR BIOGEOGRAPHY OF CAVE LIFE: A STUDY USING MITOCHONDRIAL DNA FROM BATHYSCIINE BEETLES
TLDR
This study focuses on phylogenetic relationships in two distinct species assemblages of cave‐dwelling beetles with similar disjunct distributions in the Pyrenees and Sardinia, which are believed to reflect different degrees of adaptation to cave life. Expand
Terrestrial isopods from the Hawaiian Islands (Isopoda: Oniscidea).
TLDR
The following are notable new distribution records for terrestrial isopods in Hawaii, and many new island records are given for other species, especially for the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, where only one species was previously known. Expand
Speciation in Cave Faunas
TLDR
Cave speciation studies have not yet been integrated with the growing body of theory of island biogeography, in part because progress in taxonomy of cave species has traditionally lagged behind that of most island species, but also because the degree to which various caves and cave systems are isolated from each other has not always been clear.

Eyeless arthropods of the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador: composition and origin of the cryptozoic fauna of a young, tropical, oceanic archipelago.
TLDR
Caves and soils are inhabited by ten eyeless or reduced-eyed species which have related fully-eyed epigean species, usually on the same island, indicating relatively recent (possibly parapatric) adaptive radiation into subterranean environments. Expand
Genetic variability and divergence between populations and species of Nesticus cave spiders
TLDR
Estimates of genetic divergence between species suggest that the major cladogenetic events leading to complete separation of these three Nesticus species occurred in the Middle-late Pliocene, indicating a major role of gene flow in determining the patterns of genetic differentiation between populations.

The comparison between mtDNA and scnDNA divergence estimates suggests that in these crickets changes accumulate approximately 2-3 times faster in mitochondrial than single copy nuclear sequences. Expand
