This contribution addresses two questions: which alignment patterns are causing non-monophyly of the Asellota and what is the phylogenetic history of this group? The Asellota are small benthic crustaceans occurring in most aquatic habitats. In view of the complex morphological apomorphies known for this group, monophyly of the Asellota has never been questioned. Using ssu rDNA sequences of outgroups and of 16 asellote species from fresh water, littoral marine habitats and from deep-sea… Expand
Multiple colonization of the deep sea by the Asellota (Crustacea: Peracarida: Isopoda)
TLDR
The first molecular evidence for the phylogenetic origin of this remarkable array of deep-sea crustaceans is presented, based on 30 new DNA-sequences of the complete 18s rRNA gene of specimens collected at depths down to 4543 m in the South Atlantic and South Polar Ocean. Expand
Relationships of the Sphaeromatidae genera (Peracarida: Isopoda) inferred from 18S rDNA and 16S rDNA genes
TLDR
The Sphaeromatids’ impressive exploitation of diverse habitats, in combination with diversity in female life history strategies and elaborate male combat structures, has resulted in extraordinary levels of homoplasy. Expand
Relationships of the Sphaeromatidae genera ( Peracarida : Isopoda ) inferred from 18 S rDNA and 16 S rDNA genes
The Sphaeromatidae has 100 genera and close to 700 species with a worldwide distribution. Most are abundant primarily in shallow (< 200 m) marine communities, but extend to 1.400 m, and areExpand
Phylogenetic relationships of the family Sphaeromatidae Latreille, 1825 (Crustacea: Peracarida: Isopoda) within Sphaeromatidea based on 18S-rDNA molecular data.
TLDR
In the analyses the Sphaeromatidae are shown to be unequivocally monophyletic, contrary to the morphology-based analysis by A. Brandt and G. Poore in 2003, which found the family to be paraphyletic. Expand
Molecular systematics and biodiversity of oniscidean isopods in the groundwater calcretes of central Western Australia.
TLDR
Alternative sampling techniques above the water table are utilised and a significant fauna of subterranean terrestrial oniscidean isopods from the calcretes of central Western Australia is uncovered, suggesting a link to the marine inundation of the Eucla basin during the Late Eocene. Expand
Genetic Population Structure of the Madison Cave Isopod, Antrolana lira (Cymothoida: Cirolanidae) in the Shenandoah Valley of the Eastern United States
TLDR
It is suggested that these clades remain at risk from anthropogenic disturbances such as urban development, and proposed that each of the clades be considered a distinct management unit in order to preserve the total genetic diversity for the species. Expand
Origin of the interstitial isopod Microcharon (Crustacea, Microparasellidae) from the western Languedoc and the northern Pyrenees (France) with the description of two new species
TLDR
The two-step model of colonization and evolution provides an understanding of the origin and age of this stygobite and the phylogenetic western Mediterranean lineage of Microcharon boulanouari n. Expand
Do saline taxa evolve faster? Comparing relative rates of molecular evolution between freshwater and marine eukaryotes
TLDR
Overall, there is no consistent pattern in nucleotide substitution rates linked to habitat across all genes and taxa, but some trends of higher evolutionary rates within protein‐coding genes in freshwater taxa are observed—the comparisons mainly involving bony fish—compared with their marine relatives. Expand
Life in the Underworld: Anchialine cave biology in the era of speleogenomics
TLDR
The integration of NGS methodologies with traditional taxonomic and ecological methods will help elucidate the unique characteristics and evolutionary history of anchialine cave fauna, and thus the significance of their conservation in face of current and future anthropogenic threats. Expand
Phylogeny of the Neuropterida: a first molecular approach
TLDR
P phylogenetic analysis of the heterogeneous Neuroptera remains a challenge with respect to selection of the proper genes and mutatis mutandis the morphological approach, and the hypothesis of a sister‐group relationship Raphidioptera put forward in recent morphological analyses is supported.

THE SCUTOCOXIFERA TAX. NOV. AND THE INFORMATION CONTENT OF NUCLEAR SSU RDNA SEQUENCES FOR RECONSTRUCTION OF ISOPOD PHYLOGENY (PERACARIDA: ISOPODA)
TLDR
The results of maximum parsimony analyses are congruent with major aspects of earlier hypotheses on isopod phylogeny and a major monophyletic group found in the molecular phylogenies and also supported by distinct morphological characters is named Scutocoxifera tax. Expand
Extreme differences in rates of molecular evolution of foraminifera revealed by comparison of ribosomal DNA sequences and the fossil record.
TLDR
It is estimated that the rate of rDNA evolution in planktonic foraminifera is 50 to 100 times faster than in some benthic foraminaifera, and the use of the maximum-likelihood method and limitation of analyzed sites to the most conserved parts of the SSU rRNA molecule render molecular and paleontological data generally congruent.

Extraordinary New Subterranean Isopods (Peracarida: Crustacea) from the Kimberley Region, Western Australia
TLDR
A new genus and two new species of fresh water isopods from ground waters of the Kimberley region of West Australia are described, with features including free pleonites that are subequal except for an enlarged fifth pleonite. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships of the Order Insectivora Based on Complete 12S rRNA Sequences from Mitochondria
TLDR
It is suggested that the 12S rRNA sequences lack the ability to resolve relationships extending into this period, which would explain the polyphyly, unusual affinities, and low support derived in this and other studies employing 12S sRNA sequences to diagnose relationships among eutherian orders. Expand
Parasites of crustaceans (Isopoda: Bopyridae) evolved from fish parasites: Molecular and morphological evidence
TLDR
It is proposed to give up the classification of these parasites as a separate suborder "Epicaridea", to name the taxon "Bopyridae", which should have the same rank as the sistertaxon, the family Cymothoidae, to reconstruct an evolutionary scenario. Expand
The monophyletic origin of freshwater crayfish estimated from nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequences
TLDR
Over 3000 nucleotides from three different gene regions are used in estimating phylogenetic relationships among freshwater crayfish and related Crustacea and show clear evidence for monophyly of freshwater craysfish and for the sister-group relationship between cray fish and clawed lobsters. Expand
Origin and phylogeny of metazoans as reconstructed with rDNA sequences.
TLDR
Today, students of zoology will find a large number of incompatible dendrograms of the major groups of metazoans in textbooks and articles inferred from rDNA alignments, the major source of uncertainty in comparative morphology. Expand
Phylogenetic utility of elongation factor-1 alpha in noctuoidea (Insecta: Lepidoptera): the limits of synonymous substitution.
TLDR
Interestingly, the few nonsynonymous changes appear no more phylogenetically reliable than synonymous changes, and signal strength for basal divergences is weak and fails to improve with character weighting; thus, dense taxon sampling is probably needed for strong inference from EF-1 alpha regarding deeper splits in Noctuoidea (probably early Tertiary). Expand
Limitations of Metazoan 18S rRNA Sequence Data: Implications for Reconstructing a Phylogeny of the Animal Kingdom and Inferring the Reality of the Cambrian Explosion
TLDR
The 18S rRNA molecule is an unsuitable candidate for reconstructing the evolutionary history of all metazoan phyla, and the polytomies cannot be used as a single or reliable source of evidence to support the hypothesis of a Cambrian explosion. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of the Malacostraca (Crustacea)
TLDR
The present analysis supports the basal position of the Stomatopoda, and suggests a sister-group relationship is suggested between Euphausiacea and Peracarida (including Thermosbaenacea), with the Syncarida as the sister group to both taxa. Expand
