In order to elucidate the evolutionary history and the population structure of the members of the phylum Cycliophora, which live commensally on three species of lobsters, we studied sequence variation in the mitochondrial gene cyctochrome c oxidase subunit I. Overall 242 sequences from 16 locations on both coasts of the North Atlantic, including the North Sea and the Mediterranean, were analysed, revealing 28 haplotypes, with a maximum sequence divergence of 16.6%. Total genetic diversity was… 

Hidden Mediterranean biodiversity: molecular evidence for a cryptic species complex within the reef building vermetid gastropod Dendropoma petraeum (Mollusca: Caenogastropoda)

The reef building vermetid gastropod Dendropoma petraeum inhabits the warmest waters of the Mediterranean Sea and is considered a threatened marine species, and its genetic structure throughout its whole distribution range is characterized using mitochondrial and nuclear sequence data.

Comparative phylogeography of two seastars and their ectosymbionts within the Coral Triangle

Comparisons of phylogeographical patterns from mitochondrial COI sequences among two co‐distributed seastars that differ in their adult habitat and dispersal ability suggest that habitat differences may affect the manner in which species responded to Pleistocene sea‐level fluctuations, shaping contemporary patterns of genetic structure and diversity.

A molecular phylogenetic approach to the phylum Cycliophora provides further evidence for cryptic speciation in Symbion americanus

The utility of multilocus molecular phylogenetic approaches in identifying cryptic lineages within the phylum Cycliophora is demonstrated, andPhylogenetic analyses of individual loci as well as combined data clearly support a division between American and European cycliophorans.

Cryptic speciation in the recently discovered American cycliophoran Symbion americanus; genetic structure and population expansion

Examination of the population structure and demographics of 169 individuals collected from lobsters over 13 North American localities between October 2003 and January 2006 indicated that the T lineage underwent a recent population expansion, suggesting that the C and T lineages may have speciated in allopatry but a subsequent population expansion may have been responsible for their current sympatric distribution.

Pillars of Hercules: is the Atlantic–Mediterranean transition a phylogeographical break?

Results point to a combined signature of vicariance, palaeoclimate fluctuation and life‐history traits on the Atlantic–Mediterranean phylogeographical patterns, suggesting organismal determinism may play a far less significant role than marine biogeographers have generally believed.

Are copepods secondary hosts of Cycliophora?

The first evidence of a symbiotic relationship between cycliophorans and organisms other than nephropid lobsters, namely, the harpacticoid copepods are reported.

In both species, anterior and ventral ciliated fields, as well as paired lateral sensorial organs, were identified, thus confirming previous observations, however, new details are described herein such as the penial pouch that encloses the penis.

PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF THE PANTROPICAL SEA URCHIN TRIPNEUSTES: CONTRASTING PATTERNS OF POPULATION STRUCTURE BETWEEN OCEANS

Tripneustes in the Indo-Pacific seems to be one large metapopulation spanning two oceans and containing chaotic, nonequilibrium local variation, produced by the haphazard arrival of larvae or by unpredictable local extinction.

Mitochondrial DNA variation in Northeast Atlantic and Mediterranean populations of Norway lobster, Nephrops norvegicus

No evidence was found for a Mediterranean refugium during glaciation periods, separate from the Atlantic, as has been reported for some marine species, and the Irish Sea population was the most differentiated as a result of reduced levels of diversity.

PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF THE PLANKTONIC CHAETOGNATH SAGITTA SETOSA REVEALS ISOLATION IN EUROPEAN SEAS

It is suggested that disjunct populations arose through vicariance resulting from the cyclical changes in temperature and sea levels during the Pleistocene, not because of limited dispersal ability, but because of the inability to maintain viable populations in suboptimal, geographically intermediate areas.

Genetic differentiation in a pelagic crustacean (Meganyctiphanes norvegica: Euphausiacea) from the North East Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea

The present work indicates that M. norvegica, although endowed with a high dispersal capacity because of its pelagic habit, can develop separate breeding units inside the same oceanic basin (the Atlantic).

It is suggested that the Gully and Davis Strait populations should be considered separate stocks for management purposes because of the low levels of genetic variability found in these populations.

The study revealed the presence of two major evolutionary lineages that evolved in separate refuges in southeast France as result of previous fragmentation during the Pleistocene and inferred that range expansions along river valleys in independent corridors to the north led eventually to a secondary contact zone of the major clades around the Geneva Basin.

Low mitochondrial diversity and small effective population sizes of the copepods Calanus finmarchicus and Nannocalanus minor: possible impact of climatic variation during recent glaciation.

It is hypothesize that the cause of both low levels of molecular diversity and small effective population sizes of the two species is the impact of glaciation during the past 20,000 years.

Mitochondrial DNA variation in the European lobster (Homarus gammarus) throughout the range

The results of this study show that mitochondrial DNA is a powerful tool for the determination of the genetic structure among lobster samples, which is important for a proper management policy designed to protect and to cultivate this species.

The phylogeny of the pantropical and subtropical sea urchin genus Diadema is reconstructed, using sequences of mitochondrial DNA from 482 individuals collected around the world, to determine the efficacy of barriers to gene flow and to ascertain the history of possible dispersal and vicariance events that led to speciation.
