The phylogenetic position of early hexapod lineages: morphological data contradict molecular data
TLDR
It appears that in the present state of the analytical strategies, hypotheses concerning arthropod phylogenies obtained from morphological and developmental criteria and combined analyses involving molecular and morphological data provide more reliable results than those generated by molecular information alone.
Evidence from mitochondrial genomics on interordinal relationships in insects
Mitochondrial (mt) genomes are the largest molecular data source for deep level insect phylogenetics that is also obtainable in a reasonable timeframe and for a reasonable cost. Over 100 insect mt
Phylogeny of Basal Hexapod Lineages and Estimates of Divergence Times
TLDR
The analysis recovered a monophyletic Thysanura sensu lato (Archaeognatha + Zygentoma) as the sister group to Pterygota, a conclusion that is consistent with precladistic notions of hexapod systematics but conflicts with current understanding of morphological evolution.
Mitochondrial genome data alone are not enough to unambiguously resolve the relationships of Entognatha, Insecta and Crustacea sensu lato (Arthropoda)
TLDR
It is concluded that the relationships of the extant arthropod groups as inferred by mitochondrial genomes are highly vulnerable to outgroup choice, data treatment and gene choice, and no consistent alternative hypothesis of Collembola's relationships is supported.
A Comparative Analysis of Mitochondrial Genomes in Orthoptera (Arthropoda: lnsecta) and Genome Descriptions of Three Grasshopper Species
TLDR
In this study, the comparative analysis of the stem-loop secondary structure in A+T-rich region of all Orthoptera species available to date is stressed, and new findings are reported which may facilitate further investigation and better understanding of this secondary structure.
Insecta. Searching for the perfect classification
TLDR
The history of classifications of insects is revised from its relationships within Arthropoda and major supraordinal groups to main kinds of characters and phylogenetic schemes.
Complete Mitochondrial DNA Sequences of the Decapod Crustaceans Pseudocarcinus gigas (Menippidae) and Macrobrachium rosenbergii (Palaemonidae)
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial DNA sequence was determined for the Australian giant crab Pseudocarcinns gigas and the giant freshwater shrimp Macrobrachium rosenbergii, the first caridean and only the second brachyuran complete mtDNA sequences, and a source of information that will facilitate surveys of intraspecific variation within these commercially important decapod species.
Folsomia candida (Collembola): a "standard" soil arthropod.
TLDR
This comprehensive review of the life history, ecology, and ecotoxicology of F. candida focuses on the recent literature, especially studies that have examined the effects of soil pollutants on reproduction in the species using the protocol published by the International Standards Organization in 1999.

Hexapod Origins: Monophyletic or Paraphyletic?
TLDR
It is shown that Collembola, a wingless group traditionally considered as basal to all insects, appears instead to constitute a separate evolutionary lineage that branched much earlier than the separation of many crustaceans and insects and independently adapted to life on land.
Mitochondrial protein phylogeny joins myriapods with chelicerates
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of conserved regions from the arthropod mitochondrial proteome yields highly resolved and congruent trees and proposes a model to explain the apparently parallel evolution of similar head morphologies in insects and myriapods.
Arthropod phylogeny based on eight molecular loci and morphology
TLDR
The optimal ‘total evidence’ cladogram supports the crustacean–hexapod clade, recognizes pycnogonids as sister to other euarthropods, and indicates monophyly of Myriapoda and Mandibulata.
The complete mitochondrial DNA sequence of the basal hexapod Tetrodontophora bielanensis: evidence for heteroplasmy and tRNA translocations.
TLDR
The complete 15,455-nt mitochondrial DNA sequence of the springtail Tetrodontophora bielanensis (Arthropoda, Hexapoda, Collembola), which shows the well-known A+T bias typical of insect mtDNA, and two tRNA translocations were found which were unprecedented among Arthropoda.
The complete sequence of the mitochondrial genome of the crustacean Penaeus monodon: are malacostracan crustaceans more closely related to insects than to branchiopods?
TLDR
Analysis of the effect of nucleotide bias on codon composition across the Arthropoda reveals a trend with the crustaceans represented showing the lowest proportion of AT-rich codons in mitochondrial protein genes, supporting the possibility that Crustacea are paraphyletic.
Evaluation of the maximum likelihood estimate of the evolutionary tree topologies from DNA sequence data, and the branching order in hominoidea
TLDR
A new method for estimating the variance of the difference between log likelihood of different tree topologies is developed by expressing it explicitly in order to evaluate the maximum likelihood branching order among Hominoidea.
Modeling Mitochondrial Protein Evolution Using Structural Information
TLDR
Two new models of protein sequence evolution based on structural properties of mitochondrial proteins are presented, which give a significantly improved description of the evolutionary process when used with 12 mitochondrial proteins from a broader range of organisms including fungi, plants, protists, and bacteria.
