Journal Article
Campillo, S., GarcÍa-Roger, E. M., Carmona, M. J., Gomez, A., & Serra, M. (2009). Selection on life-history traits and genetic population divergence in rotifers. Journal of evolutionary biology, 22(12), 2542-2553. doi:10.1111/j.1420-9101.2009.01871.x

A combination of founder effects and local adaptation - the Monopolization hypothesis - has been proposed to reconcile the strong population differentiation of zooplankton dwelling in ponds and lakes and their high dispersal abilities. The role genet... Read More

Sex ratio, reproductive mode and genetic diversity in Triops cancriformis (2009)
Journal Article
Zierold, T., Montero-Pau, J., Hänfling, B., & Gómez, A. (2009). Sex ratio, reproductive mode and genetic diversity in Triops cancriformis. Freshwater biology, 54(7), 1392-1405. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2427.2009.02191.x

1. Aquatic invertebrates display a wide array of alternative reproductive modes from apomixis to hermaphroditism and cyclical parthenogenesis. These have important effects on genetic diversity and population structure. Populations of the 'living foss... Read More
