Directional selection against different life histories in the Arctic lamprey (Lethenteron camtschaticum): identification by microsatellite analysis

TLDR
To understand the selective forces promoting life history evolution in lampreys, footprints of natural selection were identified using the hitchhiking mapping approach for microsatellite loci using the Arctic lampreys as a target to achieve the objective.

Filogeografia das Lampreias da Europa Ocidental: contributos para a compreensão dos seus padrões de especiação

TLDR
This paper presents a meta-analysing of the phytochemical relationships between phosphorous, nitrogen, and phosphorus in a stream as well as some of the properties of these relationships as determined by a variety of methods.

Habitat selection and predation risk in larval lampreys

TLDR
The first study indicated that least brook lamprey ammocoetes are habitat specialists, preferring substrates composed primarily of fine sand, and the second showed that the availability offine sand habitat may influence the predation risk of ammocetes.

Ontogenetic dynamics of mercury accumulation in Northwest Atlantic sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus)

TLDR
Evidence is provided from stable isotope analyses that this high variability in mercury accumulation in sea lamprey is due to feeding ecology, and that ammocoetes reflected the level of contamination in their nursery streams.

The taxonomy, phylogeny and distribution of lampreys

TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of the lampreys were similar in most respects to those obtained by subjecting molecular data for those species to Bayesian analyses, however, in contrast to the results of morphological analyses, the genera Eudontomyzon and Lampetra were not monophyletic when using molecular analyses.

Genetic models reveal historical patterns of sea lamprey population fluctuations within Lake Champlain

TLDR
The results are most consistent with the hypothesis that sea lamprey are native to Lake Champlain; however, the credibility intervals around parameter estimates demonstrate that there is uncertainty regarding the magnitude and timing of past demographic events.
