Thomas, Evan William (Ph.D., Ecology and Evolutionary Biology) Exploring species boundaries in the diatom genus Rhoicosphenia using morphology, phylogeny, ecology, and biogeography Thesis directed by Professor Andrew P. Martin Certain taxonomic groups within the American flora and fauna are relatively unexplored in terms of their biodiversity – one of these groups are the diatoms. The diversity, phylogeny, and ecology of the common freshwater diatom genus Rhoicosphenia are explored. While… 
Taxonomy and diversity of a little-known diatom genus Simonsenia (Bacillariaceae) in the marine littoral: novel taxa from the Yellow Sea and the Gulf of Mexico
TLDR
This work presents a meta-anatomy of the phytochemical defences of blue-green algae found in response to the presence of carboniferous material in the E.coli of the Democratic Republic of Korea.
Two New Benthic Diatoms of the Genus Achnanthidium (Bacillariophyceae) from the Hangang River, Korea
TLDR
Two new benthic freshwater species belonging to the genus Achnanthidium were found in Korea and their morphological comparison and molecular analyses provide strong evidence to support the recognition of A. ovale and A. cavitatum as new species.
Gomphonemopsis ligowskii, a new diatom (Bacillariophyceae) from the marine Antarctic and a comparison to other Gomphonemopsis
TLDR
A new marine diatom was found as an epiphyte on the brown macrophyte, Desmarestia anceps, collected from King George Island, Antarctica in January 2016, and is characterized by its unique shape and the presence of uniseriate striae.

The diversity and distribution of diatoms: from cosmopolitanism to narrow endemism
TLDR
Evidence that challenges the ubiquity hypothesis for the most speciose group of microbial eukaryotes, the diatoms, and underscores the pressing need to continue research into diatom biology, ecology and the factors driving diatom species diversity and geographic distributions is reviewed is reviewed.
Phylogenetic relationships and classification of monoraphid diatoms based on phenetic and cladistic methodologies
TLDR
P Phenetic and cladistic analyses of the character state data suggest that the major genera of the Achnanthaceae may form distinct evolutionary lineages, which have each converged on the reduced raphe condition.

A preliminary phylogenetic analysis of the Cymbellales based on 18S rDNA gene sequencing
TLDR
The results indicate that the Cymbellaceae Greville and Gomphonemataceae Kützing are paraphyletic, and that the significance of some of the morphological characteristics traditionally used for classification purposes requires a reassessment.
MORPHOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR INVESTIGATIONS OF NAVICULOID DIATOMS. II. SELECTED GENERA AND FAMILIES
TLDR
A molecular analysis of 91 species of naviculoid diatoms representing 22 genera and 72 species found support was found for many groups established by traditional morphological methods, although individual genera were monophyletic.
