The coral-inhabiting barnacle Pyrgopsella annandalei was collected in 1888 off the reefs of the Andaman Islands in the Indian Ocean, diagnosed in 1906, and described in full in 1907. Since then, this barnacle has not been recorded. In 2006, several specimens of Pyrgopsella were found embedded in the hermatypic coral Symphyllia radians. Based on morphological differences between this material and the drawings and written description of P. annandalei, the specimens from Symphyllia were assigned… Expand

A coral-eating barnacle, revisited (Cirripedia, Pyrgomatidae)
TLDR
A hypertrophied margin and elaborated circulatory system suggests that the Hoekiini may not be wholly dependent on feeding directly on host tissue and/or coelenteronic material, but may also be absorptive parasites. Expand
Phylogeny of coral-inhabiting barnacles (Cirripedia; Thoracica; Pyrgomatidae) based on 12S, 16S and 18S rDNA analysis.
TLDR
The phylogenetic results allowed us to reject previous classifications of Pyrgomatidae based on morphological characteristics and suggested the possibility of paraphyly of the Pyrgom atidae. Expand
Darwin's Pyrgoma (Cirripedia) Revisited: Revision of the Savignium Group, Molecular Analysis and Description of New Species
Abstract Darwin recognized the coral inhabiting barnacles as congeneric belonging to Pyrgoma. Ross and Newman (1973) assigned those with fused shell and elongated scuta to the genus Savignium. LaterExpand
DENSITY-DEPENDENT EFFECTS ON THE CIRRAL STRUCTURE OF THE BARNACLE, JEHLIUS CIRRATUS (DARWIN, 1854) (CIRRIPEDIA)
TLDR
The results suggest that intraspecific competition for food at high densities is expressed in cirral morphology, and indicate that crowding during growth provokes density-dependent effects, access to food could also be a factor that generates morphometric and meristic changes in cirri. Expand

  • 2003
TLDR
Results from these experiments suggest that variation in cirrus form is largely environmentally induced, but genetic differences may account for some variation observed among field populations; spatial and temporal flow heterogeneity appear to have selected for extreme flexibility of feeding form throughout a barnacle's life; and flow heterogeneity in the wave‐swept environment appears to has selected for rapid ecophenotypic responses in the form of feeding structures.

A simple method for estimating evolutionary rates of base substitutions through comparative studies of nucleotide sequences

TLDR
Some examples were worked out using reported globin sequences to show that synonymous substitutions occur at much higher rates than amino acid-altering substitutions in evolution. Expand
MEGA6: Molecular Evolutionary Genetics Analysis version 6.0.
TLDR
An advanced version of the Molecular Evolutionary Genetics Analysis software, which currently contains facilities for building sequence alignments, inferring phylogenetic histories, and conducting molecular evolutionary analysis, is released, which enables the inference of timetrees, as it implements the RelTime method for estimating divergence times for all branching points in a phylogeny.

Primer-directed enzymatic amplification of DNA with a thermostable DNA polymerase.
TLDR
A thermostable DNA polymerase was used in an in vitro DNA amplification procedure, the polymerase chain reaction, which significantly improves the specificity, yield, sensitivity, and length of products that can be amplified. Expand
MUSCLE: multiple sequence alignment with high accuracy and high throughput.

TLDR
MUSCLE is a new computer program for creating multiple alignments of protein sequences that includes fast distance estimation using kmer counting, progressive alignment using a new profile function the authors call the log-expectation score, and refinement using tree-dependent restricted partitioning.
