The causes underlying disjunct distributions are of major importance in biogeography. Arcto-Tertiary relict biotas in the temperate northern hemisphere, which typically show disjunct distributions between Asia and the Nearctic region, are widely known but often poorly understood examples of disjunct distributions. The distributional pattern of the barklouse genus Trichadenotecnum is an example of an Arcto-Tertiary relict, with centers of species diversity in Asia and Central America. We… 
Illumina whole genome sequencing indicates ploidy level differences within the Valenzuela flavidus (Psocodea: Psocomorpha: Caeciliusidae) species complex
Results suggest divergent population structure among European asexual and North American sexual members of V. flavidus providing insight for future studies to understand patterns of asexuality reported within the complex.
The Trichadenotecnum corniculum species group from Thailand (Psocodea: Psocidae)
Five new species of the corniculum species group of the psocid genus Trichadenotecnum Enderlein, T. affinifelix and T. separatum were described from Thailand, sharing a couple of male genital apomorphies with the other Oriental species of this species group recorded from China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.

It is found that climatic conditions in Beringia acted as a decisive filter in determining which taxa crossed into the New World during five separate invasions over the past 11 Myr, and a marked effect of the Miocene–Pleistocene global cooling is revealed.
Systematics and biogeography of the New World species of Trichadenotecnum Enderlein (Insecta: Psocodea: ‘Psocoptera’: Psocidae)
Based on the phylogenetic hypothesis and distributional pattern of the species groups, the biogeographical history of the New World Trichadenotecnum is discussed and trees from these analyses support monophyly of TrichADCnum and the proposed species groups.

jModelTest is a new program for the statistical selection of models of nucleotide substitution based on "Phyml" that implements 5 different selection strategies, including "hierarchical and dynamical likelihood ratio tests," the "Akaike information criterion", the "Bayesian information criterion," and a "decision-theoretic performance-based" approach.
PAML 4: phylogenetic analysis by maximum likelihood.
PAML, currently in version 4, is a package of programs for phylogenetic analyses of DNA and protein sequences using maximum likelihood (ML), which can be used to estimate parameters in models of sequence evolution and to test interesting biological hypotheses.
Evidence for an early opening of the Bering Strait
The first opening of the Bering Strait was an important palaeogeographical and biogeographical event for marine and terrestrial biotas in Asia and North America, and an oceanographic event of global
