Evolutionary History of Northern Hemisphere Nucella (gastropoda, Muricidae): Molecular, Morphological, Ecological, and Paleontological Evidence.

By combining data from a variety of sources we explore patterns of evolution and speciation in Nucella, a widely studied genus of shallow-water marine neogastropods. We present a hypothesis of phylogenetic relationships for all of the currently recognized species of northern hemisphere Nucella, based on an analysis of 718 base pairs of nucleotide sequence… CONTINUE READING
