The phylogenetic relationships of branchiopod crustaceans have been in the focus of a number of recent morphological and molecular systematic studies. Although agreeing in some respects, major differences remain. We analyzed molecular sequences and morphological characters for 43 branchiopods and two outgroups. The branchiopod terminals comprise all eight “orders”. The molecular data include six loci: two nuclear ribosomal genes (18S rRNA, 28S rRNA), two mitochondrial ribosomal genes (12S rRNA… Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the Calanoida (Crustacea: Copepoda).
TLDR
This study establishes a multi-gene molecular phylogeny of the calanoid copepods based upon small (18S) and large (28S) subunits of nuclear ribosomal RNA genes and mitochondrial encoded cy tochrome b and cytochrome c oxidase subunit-I genes, including 29 families from 7 superfamilies of the order. Expand
The first complete mitochondrial genome of Limnadia lenticularis (Branchiopoda, Spinicaudata), with new insights on its phylogeography and on the taxonomy of the genus
TLDR
The genetic diversity and relationships of different specimens from remote localities of this species using two partial markers suggest that Limnadia lenticularis is composed of three cryptic species (with allopatric distribution in Europe, East Asia and America). Expand
Evolutionary systematics of the Australian Eocyzicus fauna (Crustacea: Branchiopoda: Spinicaudata) reveals hidden diversity and phylogeographic structure
TLDR
There is little to no genetic differentiation between certain populations of the species found in eastern and central Australia (e.g. the Murray–Darling Basin, the Bulloo River catchment and the eastern and northern Lake Eyre Basin; LEB), suggesting high dispersal rates within this large area. Expand
Arthropod phylogeny revisited, with a focus on crustacean relationships.
TLDR
A preliminary attempt to incorporate the large diversity of crustaceans into a single molecular phylogenetic analysis, assessing the robustness of phylogenetic relationships under varying analysis parameters and providing useful pointers for future studies. Expand
Cyclestheria hislopi (Crustacea: Branchiopoda): a group of morphologically cryptic species with origins in the Cretaceous.
TLDR
Today's circumtropic distribution of Cyclestheria may be best explained by a combination of Gondwana vicariance and later dispersal across Asia and Australia when the tectonic plates of the two continents drew closer in the early Miocene. Expand
A fossil-calibrated phylogenomic analysis of Daphnia and the Daphniidae.
TLDR
This study performs a phylogenomic analysis of the Daphniidae family including some of the most frequently studied model organisms (Daphnia magna and D. pulex) whose phylogenetic relationships have been based primarily on an assessment of a few mtDNA genes. Expand
Phylogeny and Biogeography of Spinicaudata (Crustacea: Branchiopoda).
TLDR
The most species-rich phylogenetic analyses of this taxon based on four molecular loci are presented and support previous findings that Cyzicidae sensu lato is paraphyletic and establish a fourth extant spinicaudatan family to accommodate Eocyzicus. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the Notostraca.
TLDR
The results confirm the monophyly of both extant notostracan genera Triops and Lepidurus with good support in model based and maximum parsimony analyses and form a biogeographic hypothesis that explains distributions of extant lineages predominantly by overland dispersal routes. Expand
Phylogeny of Branchiopoda (Crustacea) - Character Evolution and Contribution of Uniquely Preserved Fossils
TLDR
A morphology-based phylogenetic analysis of Branchiopoda is presented, which combines recent taxa with the most well-preserved and informative fossils and provides a basis for a discussion of aspects of branchiopod evolution. Expand
Evolutionary systematics of the Australian Cyzicidae (Crustacea, Branchiopoda, Spinicaudata) with the description of a new genus
TLDR
A new spinicaudatan genus Ozestheria gen. nov. is described to accommodate the Australian representatives of both studied genera, which constitute a single monophyletic clade separated from all available non-Australian representatives of these genera. Expand

Molecular phylogeny of the Branchiopoda (Crustacea)--multiple approaches suggest a 'diplostracan' ancestry of the Notostraca.
TLDR
The phylogeny of Branchiopoda is examined by using two genes, mitochondrial 16S rRNA and nuclear 28S r RNA, which previously have seen little use for inferring branchiopod phylogeny, and a case is made for a possible diplostracan ingroup position of Notostraca. Expand
BRANCHIOPOD MONOPHYLY AND INTERORDINAL PHYLOGENY INFERRED FROM 18S RIBOSOMAL DNA
TLDR
It is proposed that the taxonomic heading “Cladocera” include a new taxon, Cyclesthera, equal in rank to the Gymnomera, which corroborates views based on morphological comparisons that the cladoceran lineage arose from a cyclestherid-like ancestor. Expand
First molecular evidence for the existence of a Tardigrada + Arthropoda clade.
TLDR
The results obtained represent the first molecular evidence for a Tardigrada + Arthropoda clade and indicate the need to review those obtained solely on morphological characters. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships within the Phyllopoda (Crustacea, Branchiopoda) based on mitochondrial and nuclear markers.
TLDR
The relationships within the Phyllopoda are explored at the level of nucleotid comparisons of the two genes 12S rDNA (mitochondrial) and EF1alpha (nuclear) and at a higher molecular level based on introns found in the gene EF1 alpha. Expand
A phylogenetic analysis of the Conchostraca and Cladocera (Crustacea, Branchiopoda, Diplostraca)
TLDR
A computer-assisted cladistic analysis on morphological characters of the Diplostraca (ConchostracA and Cladocera) has been undertaken for the first time and a suggested classificatory hierarchy is presented. Expand
Genetic markers, genealogies and biogeographic patterns in the cladocera
TLDR
This analysis clustered the cladoceran families in a fashion similar to that suggested by previous systematic classifications, and revealed interspecific hybridization and backcrossing between some taxa to be widespread, and species and hybrids to frequently occur in sympatry. Expand
Probing the relationships of the branchiopod crustaceans.
TLDR
To infer the affinities among branchiopods, two approaches to taxon and gene sampling are employed, new sequence data from three genes are presented, and phylogeny reconstruction is utilized, providing support for a number of longstanding hypotheses concerning the relationships among the orders. Expand
A century later – a total evidence re-evaluation of the phylogeny of scutigeromorph centipedes (Myriapoda : Chilopoda)
TLDR
Molecular and combined analyses resolve the genus Scutigerina and the morphospecies Scutigersina weberi as paraphyletic, in both cases with a Malagasy clade excluding populations from southern Africa. Expand
Phylogenetic evidence for a single long-lived clade of crustacean cyclic parthenogens and its implications for the evolution of sex
TLDR
The sequence–based, structural rRNA and total evidence phylogenies are concordant and suggest that cyclic parthenogenesis arose once in the branchiopods, that this clade is long–lived, and that it has radiated extensively into nearly every aqueous habitat without reverting to strict sexuality and only rarely transforming to strict asexuality. Expand
The genus Cyphophthalmus (Arachnida, Opiliones, Cyphophthalmi) in Europe: a phylogenetic approach to Balkan Peninsula biogeography.
TLDR
Analysis of phylogenetic data to characterize the relationships among sironids centered in the Balkan region reveals monophyly of a Balkan clade for which the name Cyphophthalmus is resurrected, considered a junior synonym of Siro for over a century. Expand
