Journal Article
Bik, H. M., Thomas, W. K., Lunt, D. H., & Lambshead, P. J. D. (2010). Low endemism, continued deep-shallow interchanges, and evidence for cosmopolitan distributions in free-living marine nematodes (order Enoplida). BMC evolutionary biology, 10(1), (389). doi:10.1186/1471-2148-10-389. ISSN 1471-2148

Background: Nematodes represent the most abundant benthic metazoa in one of the largest habitats on earth, the deep sea. Characterizing major patterns of biodiversity within this dominant group is a critical step towards understanding evolutionary pa... Read More

Moving towards a complete molecular framework of the Nematoda: A focus on the Enoplida and early-branching clades (2010)

Background: The subclass Enoplia (Phylum Nematoda) is purported to be the earliest branching clade amongst all nematode taxa, yet the deep phylogeny of this important lineage remains elusive. Free-living marine species within the order Enoplida play... Read More
