The origin of the obligate‐parthenogenetic New Zealand stick insect genus Acanthoxyla was investigated using cytogenetics and sequencing of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA. Little mitochondrial DNA sequence variation (COI‐II) was found among seven species of the genus Acanthoxyla and we found no evidence for monophyly of the morphologically distinguished lineages. In contrast, two distinct clades of nuclear sequence (ITS) were obtained, one is restricted to the genus Acanthoxyla, while the other… Expand
Investigating hybridization in the parthenogenetic New Zealand stick insect Acanthoxyla (Phasmatodea) using single-copy nuclear loci.
TLDR
It is inferred that the extant parthenogenetic lineages formed via hybridization between species of Acanthoxyla, at least one of which must have been sexual. Expand
Multiple lines of evidence suggest mosaic polyploidy in the hybrid parthenogenetic stick insect lineage Acanthoxyla
TLDR
A mechanism for the evolution of the Acanthoxyla lineage is proposed and it is suggested that interpretation may be complicated by the presence of individuals that are diploid and triploid mosaics. Expand
The Leptynia hispanica species complex (Insecta Phasmida): polyploidy, parthenogenesis, hybridization and more
TLDR
It is suggested that L. hispanica is a case of ‘geographical parthenogenesis’ with parthenogenetic strains colonizing large peripheral ranges, and bisexuals confined to glacial refuge areas, and the age, wide distribution and competitive advantage of polyploids over diploids, demonstrate their significance in the evolution of the L.hispanica species complex. Expand
Fewer species of Argosarchus and Clitarchus stick insects (Phasmida, Phasmatinae): evidence from nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequence data
TLDR
It is concluded that Argosarchus and Clitarchus have each been over‐split and actually consist of a single morphologically polymorphic, facultative parthenogenetic species. Expand
Origin and Genetic Diversity of Diploid Parthenogenetic Artemia in Eurasia
TLDR
The results indicate that there are at least two, possibly three independent and recent maternal origins of parthenogenetic lineages, related to A. urmiana and Artemia sp. Expand
Are you my mother? Phylogenetic analysis reveals orphan hybrid stick insect genus is part of a monophyletic New Zealand clade.
TLDR
Phylogenetic reconstructions resolved an exclusively New Zealand clade to which the maternal lineage of Acanthoxyla belonged, but did not support existing higher level taxonomy of stick insects. Expand
The phylogenetic placement and biogeographical origins of the New Zealand stick insects (Phasmatodea)
TLDR
These analyses show that Lanceocercata and their sister group, the Stephanacridini, probably diverged from their South American relatives, the Cladomorphinae, as a result of the separation of Australia, Antarctica and South America. Expand
Speciation through androgenesis in the stick insect genus Clonopsis (Insecta Phasmatodea)
TLDR
Owing to the reinforced data set, it now appears much more sensible to support androgenesis as a quick pathway to originate polyploids with numerically and genetically sharply differing chromosome sets, while maintaining, at the same time, high mitochondrial similarity. Expand
Phylogeographic history of the New Zealand stick insect Niveaphasma annulata (Phasmatodea) estimated from mitochondrial and nuclear loci.
TLDR
The study offers compelling evidence for the use of nuclear genes alongside mtDNA for future phylogeographic studies and indicates that Niveaphasma annulata was most likely separated into a number of refugia during Pleistocene glacial advances and subsequent to glacial retreat these refugial populations have expanded and now form anumber of zones of secondary contact. Expand
The first chromosomal analysis of bisexual populations of the Brazilian scorpion Tityus serrulatus (Scorpiones: Buthidae)
TLDR
This finding seems to indicate the existence of a sex-specific heteromorphism in T. serrulatus, in which the females are heterogametic and the males are the homogametics sex. Expand

TLDR
Reticulate evolution may explain the failure of several previous studies to resolve the phylogeny of these four species. Expand
Origin of the unisexual lizard Gymnophthalmus underwoodi (Gymnophthalmidae) inferred from mitochondrial DNA nucleotide sequences.
TLDR
Analysis of variation in nucleotide sequences in mitochondrial DNA genes among species of Gymnophthalmus supports three major conclusions, suggesting that all individuals from localities in the Guianan Region of South America and the Lesser Antilles descended from a single hybridization event.

ELECTROPHORETIC VARIATION IN THE PARTHENOGENETIC GRASSHOPPER WARRAMABA VIRGO AND ITS SEXUAL RELATIVES
TLDR
The allozyme, chromosome, molecular, and morphological data suggest that the Standard Phylad clones are of a more ancient but restricted origin, with clonal variation being the result of multiple hybridizations between individuals of P196 and P169. Expand
Documentation of reticulate evolution in peonies (Paeonia) using internal transcribed spacer sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA: implications for biogeography and concerted evolution.
TLDR
Reconstruction of reticulate evolution with sequence data provides gene records for distributional histories of some of the parental species and demonstrates that the sequence data could be highly informative and accurate for detecting hybridization. Expand
The Origins of Arabidopsis suecica (Brassicaceae) as Indicated by Nuclear rDNA Sequences
TLDR
No recombination or evidence of concerted evolution of the ITS was observed, suggesting either that homogeni- zation of rDNA repeats through concerted evolution is more efficient within rather than among chromosomes, or that, because of the recent origin of A. suecica, insufficient time has elapsed to allow ITS sequences to be homogenized.

Cryptic trysts, genomic mergers, and plant speciation
TLDR
These remarkable observations of interspecific genetic exchange emerge from a genus for which such contact would appear improbable, implying that historical hybridization is a more creative force than suspected in angiosperm evolution. Expand
AGE AND POLYPHYLETIC ORIGINS OF HYBRID AND SPONTANEOUS PARTHENOGENETIC CAMPELOMA (GASTROPODA: VIVIPARIDAE) FROM THE SOUTHEASTERN UNITED STATES
TLDR
Analysis of mtDNA sequence variation from southeastern United States populations of the freshwater snail Campeloma shows patterns consistent with higher dispersal rates and recent range expansion of parthenogens, which should reduce the effects of mutation accumulation or parasitism. Expand
Intraspecific karyotype variation is not concordant with allozyme variation in the Auckland tree weta of New Zealand,Hemideina thoracica(Orthoptera: Stenopelmatidae)
TLDR
No evidence was found to suggest that chromosomal differentiation has been acting as a barrier to the flow of alleles within H. thoracica, and the Neighbour-Joining tree was not concordant with the chromosome based sub-divisions of the species. Expand
Reticulate evolution and the origins of ribosomal internal transcribed spacer diversity in apomictic Meloidogyne.
TLDR
The diversity of ITSs in M. arenaria, M. javanica, and M. incognita is suggested to be due to hybrid origins from closely related females (as inferred from mtDNA) and combinations of more diverse paternal lineages. Expand
