Molecular approaches to ecology and evolution by Rob DeSalle( Book )

13 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four years ago we edited a volume of 36 papers entitled Molecular Approaches to Ecology and Evolution (Schierwater et ai., 1994), in which we attempted to put toƯ gether a diverse array of papers that demonstrated the impact that the technologiƯ cal revolution ofmolecular biology has had on the field ofevolutionary biologyand ecology. The present volume borrows from that theme but attempts to focus more sharply on the impact that molecular biology has had on our understanding of difƯ ferent hierarchical levels important in evolutionary and ecological studies. Because DNA sequence variation is at the heart ofeverypaper in the present volume, we feel it necessary to examine how DNA has affected study at various levels of biological organization. The majority of the chapters in the present volume follow themes esƯ tablished in the earlier volume; all chapters by authors in the previous volume are either fully updated or entirely new and expand into areas that we felt were imporƯ tant for a more complete understanding of the impact of DNA technology on ecolƯ ogy and evolution. The collection of papers in this volume cover a diverse array of ecological and evolutionary questions and demonstrates the breadth of coverage molecular techƯ nology has imparted on modern evolutionary biology. There are also a broad range of hierarchical questions approached by the 17 papers in this volume
Molecular ecology and evolution : approaches and applications by B Schierwater( Book )

11 editions published in 1994 in English and German and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past 25 years have witnessed a revolution in the way ecologists and evolutionary biologists approach their disciplines. Modern molecular techniques are now reshaping the spectrum of questions that can be addressed while studying the mechanisms and consequences of the ecology and evolution of living organisms. "Molecular Ecology and Evolution: Approaches and Applications" describes, from a molecular perspective, several methodological and technical approaches used in the fields of ecology, evolution, population biology, molecular systematics, conservation genetics, and development. Modern techniques are introduced, and older, more classic ones refined. The advantages, limitations, and potentials of each are discussed in detail, and thereby illustrate the widening range of cross-field research and applications which this modern technology is stimulating. This book will serve as an important textbook for graduate and advanced undergraduate students, and as a key reference work for researchers
Key transitions in animal evolution by Rob DeSalle( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The origin of multicellular animals is one of those difficult and delicate biological problems that have been pondered for centuries. This book summarizes recent results in phylogenetics and developmental biology that address the evolution of key innovations in metazoans. The first section covers phylogenetic issues. Focusing on nervous system and sensory organ development, the second section addresses prominent questions concerning the developmental biology of metazoan evolution. A third section discusses the evolution of pattern and process in the incredible forms of life that we call Metazoa and covers evolution of life histories and the evolution of biogeochemical aspects of metazoans. The book has over 40 illustrations and an up-to-date bibliography of over 500 references. Each chapter concludes with a set of questions for study and discussion."--

Invertebrate zoology : a tree of life approach by B Schierwater( Book )

3 editions published between 2019 and 2021 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents a comprehensive overview of invertebrate organismal zoology (IZ), defining invertebrates as any multicellular organism without a backbone (excluding plants and Fungi). While there are many IZ textbooks on the market, few combine the classical anatomical information with the newer genome level DNA sequence data and evo-devo data for teaching purposes. This book documents the latest research in these areas and combines it with classical information, giving students a unique opportunity to learn the biology of these organisms"--

Comparative mitochondrial genomics in basal metazoans: new phylogenetic and functional approaches by Hans-Jürgen Osigus( )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The phylum Placozoa is crucial for understanding the early evolutionary pathways of animal mitochondrial genomes. The studies conducted in this thesis target early metazoan mitochondrial phylogenetics, placozoan mitochondrial mRNA processing and comparative placozoan mitochondrial genomics and its implications for placozoan taxonomy. In order to test the effect of taxon sampling on metazoan mitochondrial phylogenies, five comprehensive whole mitochondrial data sets were generated and analyzed. The outcomes of the analyses support some well-known topologies, but also reveal some problematic taxa. In sum, with respect to phylogenetics, mitochondrial data sets perform best below the phylum-level, as current evolutionary models struggle with data heterogeneity and long-branch attraction artifacts. Deep RNA sequencing revealed the existence of a single base pair cox1 micro exon but does not support mRNA editing in Placozoa. This cox1 micro exon is the first mitochondrial single base pair exon reported from an animal. The comparative analyses of nine new placozoan mitochondrial genomes revealed an unexpected diversity and complex evolutionary history of mitochondrial DNA characteristics within Placozoa. Complemented by nuclear genome data, this mtDNA diversity yielded the formal description of the new placozoan genus Polyplacotoma. The analyses also provided new important insights into enrichment patterns of GC-rich hairpins, the evolution of gene orders and complex fragmentation patterns of placozoan mitochondrial genes

The complete mitochondrial genome of the emperor dragonfly Anax imperator LEACH, 1815 (Odonata : Aeshnidae) via NGS sequencing( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Here we report the complete mitochondrial genome of the emperor dragonfly, Anax imperator (Odonata: Aeshnidae) as the first of its genus. Data were generated via next generation sequencing (NGS) and assembled using an iterative approach. The typical metazoan set of 37 genes (13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, and 2 rRNA genes) was detected in the same gene order as in other odonate mitogenomes. However, only three intergenic spacer regions are present in A. imperator lacking the distinct s5 spacer, which was regarded as informative feature of the odonate suborder Anisoptera (dragonflies) but absent in Zygoptera (damselflies). With 16, 087 bp, it is the longest anisopteran mitogenome to date, mainly due to the long A + T-rich control region of 1291 bp
