Systematics : a course of lectures by Ward Wheeler( )

19 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... Designed for use in an advanced undergraduate or introductory graduate level course in systematics and is meant to present core systematic concepts and literature. The book covers topics such as the history of systematic thinking and fundamental concepts in the field including species concepts, homology, and hypothesis testing. Analytical methods are covered in detail with chapters devoted to sequence alignment, optimality criteria, and methods such as distance, parsimony, maximum likelihood and Bayesian approaches. Trees and tree searching, consensus and super-tree methods, support measures, and other relevant topics are each covered in their own sections. The work is not a bleeding-edge statement or in-depth review of the entirety of systematics, but covers the basics as broadly as could be handled in a one semester course. Most chapters are designed to be a single 1.5 hour class, with those on parsimony, likelihood, posterior probability, and tree searching two classes (2 x 1.5 hours)."--Provided by publisher

Techniques in molecular systematics and evolution by Rob DeSalle( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This manual presents some of the most important techniques for data acquisition developed over the last years. The choice and justification of data analysis techniques is also an important and critical aspect of modern phylogenetic and evolutionary analysis and so a considerable part of this volume addresses this important subject. The book is mainly written for students and researchers from evolutionary biology in search for methods to acquire data, but also from molecular biology who might be looking for information on how data are analyzed in an evolutionary context."--BOOK JACKET

Phylogeny, taxonomic revision, and character evolution of the genera Chiasmocleis and Syncope (Anura, Microhylidae) in Amazonia, with descriptions of three new species by Pedro L. V Peloso( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A taxonomic assessment of the microhylid genera Chiasmocleis and Syncope occurring in the Amazon basin and Guiana Shield is presented. Syncope Walker, 1973, is considered a junior synonym of Chiasmocleis Méhelÿ, 1904, based on the monophyly of the group as a unit. To avoid secondary homonymy with Syncope carvalhoi Nelson, 1975 (senior homonym), a replacement name, Chiasmocleis lacrimae, nom. nov., is given to Chiasmocleis carvalhoi Cruz, Caramaschi, and Izecksohn, 1997 (junior homonym). From integrative analyses of morphological, acoustic, and a phylogenetic analysis of three genes (two mitochondrial, 16S: up to 557 bp, COI: up to 658 bp; and one nuclear, tyrosinase: up to 532 bp), we recognize 16 species in the area of study, 13 of which were previously known and three are described as new: Chiasmocleis albopunctata; C. anatipes; C. antenori; C. avilapiresae; C. bassleri; C. carvalhoi; C. devriesi; C. haddadi, sp. nov.; C. hudsoni; C. magnova; C. papachibe, sp. nov.; C. royi, sp. nov.; C. shudikarensis; C. supercilialba; C. tridactyla; C. ventrimaculata. Chiasmocleis jimi Caramaschi and Cruz, 2001, is considered a junior synonym of Chiasmocleis hudsoni Parker, 1940. Species accounts are provided for all 16 species, as is a compilation of available data, including type specimens, type localities, morphological diagnoses, variation, tadpoles (only from literature), advertisement calls (calls of several populations described for the first time), and natural history. Photographs and updated data on geographical distributions, with maps, are also provided. The evolution of some phenotypic traits is studied in light of a phylogeny of the group
Myrmecicultoridae, a new family of myrmecophilic spiders from the Chihuahuan Desert (Araneae, Entelegynae) by Martín J Ramírez( )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new genus and species Myrmecicultor chihuahuensis Ramírez, Grismado, and Ubick is described and proposed as the type of the new family, Myrmecicultoridae Ramírez, Grismado, and Ubick. The species is ecribellate, with entelegyne genitalia, two tarsal claws, without claw tufts, and the males have a retrolateral palpal tibial apophysis. Some morphological characters suggest a possible relationship with Zodariidae or Prodidomidae, but the phylogenetic analysis of six markers from the mitochondrial (12S rDNA, 16S rDNA, cytochrome oxidase subunit I) and nuclear (histone H3, 18S rDNA, 28S rDNA) genomes indicate that M. chihuahuensis is a separate lineage emerging near the base of the Dionycha and the Oval Calamistrum clade. The same result is obtained when the molecular data are combined with a dataset of morphological characters. Specimens of M. chihuahuensis were found associated with three species of harvester ants, Pogonomyrmex rugosus, Novomessor albisetosis, and Novomessor cockerelli, and were collected in pitfall traps when the ants are most active. The known distribution spans the Big Bend region of Texas (Presidio, Brewster, and Hudspeth counties), to Coahuila (Cuatro Ciénegas) and Aguascalientes (Tepezalá), Mexico
Some unusual small-subunit ribosomal RNA sequences of metazoans by Gonzalo Giribet( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The SSU rRNA gene is one of the most widely utilized loci for phylogenetic inference among eukaryotic organisms. Although they have an average length of 1800 to 1900 bp, several unusually large 18S rDNA sequences have been reported. After examining GenBank sequences and 180 new 18S rRNA sequences from several metazoan groups, we report many other extraordinary sequences ranging between ca. 1350 bp (in symphylan myriapods) to ca. 3300 bp (in some strepsipteran insects). Myriapods are particularly interesting, having independently evolved extraordinary sequences in the four classes (Chilopoda, Diplopoda, Symphyla, and Pauropoda). An insertion event of ca. 300 bp has been detected in all but the most basal family of geophilomorphan centipedes. Other major insertions are also found in other arthropod groups, in onychophorans, molluscs, chaetognaths, echinoderms, and parasitic platyhelminths. The use of information derived from secondary structure predictions combined with a new method to analyze DNA sequence data without multiple sequence alignments is proposed as a solution for analyzing sequence data that possess alternatively conservative and variable regions, such as ribosomal genes
Mitochondrial intergenic spacer in fairy basslets (Serranidae, Anthiinae) and the simultaneous analysis of nucleotide and rearrangement data by William Leo Smith( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We present the results of a study that implements a recently developed phylogenetic algorithm that combines fixed-states nucleotide optimization with breakpoint analysis to identify and examine the evolution of a mitochondrial intergenic spacer between the tRNA[superscript Val] and 16S rRNA loci in a clade of fairy basslets (Serranidae: Anthiinae). The results of the analysis indicate that this spacer evolved once and that it may be increasing in size through evolutionary time. The resulting molecular hypothesis corroborates much of the previous morphological phylogenetic work
