Galagete is a genus of microlepidoptera including 12 nominate species endemic to the Galapagos Islands. In order to better understand the diversification of this endemic insular radiation, to unravel relationships among species and populations, and to get insight into the early stages of speciation, we developed a phylogenetic reconstruction based on the combined mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I (555bp) and II (453bp), and the nuclear elongation factor-1alpha (711bp) and wingless (351bp… Expand
Cryptic differentiation in the endemic micromoth Galagete darwini (Lepidoptera, Autostichidae) on Galápagos volcanoes
TLDR
The combined phylogeographic analysis surprisingly revealed that G. darwini populations at higher elevation on the western islands (Fernandina, Isabela and Santiago) represent a distinct lineage from the one in the low arid zones of these same islands. Expand
Nuclear and mitochondrial sequences confirm complex colonization patterns and clear species boundaries for flightless weevils in the Galápagos archipelago
TLDR
The present reconstruction relies on submerged platforms to explain the early divergence of the young southern Isabela endemics or the Española or San Cristobal populations, and the amount of diversity generated through intra-island processes is skewed towards older islands, suggesting that island age significantly influences diversity. Expand
A hitchhikers guide to the Galápagos: co-phylogeography of Galápagos mockingbirds and their parasites
TLDR
It is shown that pooling genetic data from organisms living in close ecological association reveals a more accurate phylogeographic history for these taxa, with instances of incongruence mostly explained by ancestral genetic polymorphism. Expand
Island Biogeography of Galápagos Lava Lizards (Tropiduridae: Microlophus): Species Diversity and Colonization of the Archipelago
TLDR
Combined evidence suggests that M. indefatigabilis from Santa Fe should be recognized as a full species and molecular divergence estimates suggest that the two colonization events likely occurred on the oldest existing islands, and the Western Radiation represents a recent radiation that, in most cases, has produced species that are considerably younger than the islands they inhabit. Expand
Older than the islands: origin and diversification of Galápagos leaf‐toed geckos (Phyllodactylidae: Phyllodactylus) by multiple colonizations
TLDR
The phylogenetic hypotheses and recent palaeogeographical data support both dispersal and vicariance as mechanisms leading to the radiation of leaf-toed geckos in the Galapagos Islands. Expand
Present diversity of Galápagos leaf-toed geckos (Phyllodactylidae: Phyllodactylus) stems from three independent colonization events.
TLDR
The species tree obtained here showed that most species of Phyllodactylus are nested in a single clade with an age between 5.49 and 13.8Ma, whereas a second independent colonization corresponding to P. darwini from San Cristóbal island occurred 3.03Ma ago. Expand
Historical Isolation of the Galápagos Carpenter Bee (Xylocopa darwini) despite Strong Flight Capability and Ecological Amplitude
Colonization across the Galápagos Islands by the carpenter bee (Xylocopa darwini) was reconstructed based on distribution of mitochondrial haplotypes (cytochrome oxidase II (COII) sequences) andExpand
Pleistocene climate change promoted rapid diversification of aquatic invertebrates in Southeast Australia
TLDR
The results suggest that the repeated isolation of populations in glacial refugia might have led to divergent ecological adaptations and the fixation of morphological traits supporting reproductive isolation and therefore may have promoted speciation. Expand
Deep sympatric mtDNA divergence in the autumnal moth (Epirrita autumnata)
TLDR
The results demonstrate that deep mtDNA divergences are not synonymous with cryptic speciation and this has important implications for the use of mtDNA in species delimitation, like in DNA barcoding. Expand
Understanding the genetic diversity of the guayabillo (Psidium galapageium), an endemic plant of the Galapagos Islands
TLDR
The findings of this study highlight the complex population dynamics that shape the genetic diversity of species like the guayabillo, and emphasize the importance of a species’ evolution and natural history when interpreting its population genetics. Expand

Evolution of Galapagos Island Lava Lizards (Iguania: Tropiduridae: Microlophus).
TLDR
The hypothesis that tropidurid lizards dispersed to the Galapagos Islands on at least two separate occasions is supported and a complex of weakly divergent lineages that is paraphyletic with respect to the insular species M. duncanensis is revealed. Expand
Molecular systematics and adaptive radiation of Hawaii's endemic Damselfly genus Megalagrion (Odonata: Coenagrionidae).
TLDR
Relations among 56 individuals from 20 of the 23 described species using maximum likelihood and Bayesian phylogenetic analysis of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequence data are examined to propose a general model for the development of endemic damselfly species on Hawaiian Islands and document five potential cases of hybridization.

  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
  • 2002
TLDR
The nDNA phylogeny corroborates the hypothesis of allopatric divergence and multiple invasions, and when compared with mtDNA patterns, suggests that interspecific hybridization is a persistent feature of the history of Laupala. Expand
Speciation on a conveyor belt: sequential colonization of the hawaiian islands by Orsonwelles spiders (Araneae, Linyphiidae).
TLDR
The results suggest that the oldest divergences of Orsonwelles spiders (on Kauai) go back about 4 million years, and the monophyly of the genus Orson welles is strongly supported. Expand

TLDR
The results demonstrate that the diversification of Galápagos bulimulid land snails has been driven by a combination of geographic factors, which affect colonization patterns, and ecological factors, such as plant species diversity, that foster within-island speciation. Expand

TLDR
The phylogencetic relationships of species inhabiting the younger islands of EI hierro and LaPalma indicate that coloniztion events between islands have probably been a significant factor in the evolutionary history of the Canary Island species assemblage. Expand
Papilio phylogeny based on mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I and II genes.
TLDR
These two protein coding genes, particularly COI, show excellent performance in resolving relationships at the level of species and species groups among Papilionidae and are strongly endorsed for future studies aimed at these levels. Expand
PHYLOGEOGRAPHY AND HISTORY OF GIANT GALAPAGOS TORTOISES
TLDR
A complex phylogeography and history for this giant Galàpagos tortoise radiation within an insular environment is revealed and have implications for efforts to conserve these endangered biological treasures. Expand
Origin and evolutionary relationships of giant Galápagos tortoises.
TLDR
A phylogenetic reconstruction based on mitochondrial DNA sequences from Galápagos tortoises and Geochelone from mainland South America and Africa suggests that the four named southern subspecies on the largest island, Isabela, are not distinct genetic units, whereas a genetically distinct northernmost Isabela subspecies is probably the result of a separate colonization.

Phylogenetics of the Cotton Genus (Gossypium): Character-State Weighted Parsimony Analysis of Chloroplast-DNA Restriction Site Data and Its Systematic and Biogeographic Implications
TLDR
The maternal phylogenetic hypothesis and area cladogram suggest that Gossypium originated in either Africa or Australia, and the possibility that New World allopolyploids originated following a trans-Pacific transfer of an ancestral A-genome taxon to the Pacific coast of Mesoamerica or South America.
