Journal Article
Mathers, T. C., Hammond, R. L., Jenner, R. A., Hänfling, B., & Gomez, A. (2013). Multiple global radiations in tadpole shrimps challenge the concept of 'living fossils'. PeerJ, 1, e62. doi:10.7717/peerj.62

‘Living fossils’, a phrase first coined by Darwin, are defined as species with limited recent diversification and high morphological stasis over long periods of evolutionary time. Morphological stasis, however, can potentially lead to div... Read More

High lability of sexual system over 250 million years of evolution in morphologically conservative tadpole shrimps (2013)
Journal Article
Mathers, T. C., Jenner, R. A., Zierold, T., Hammond, R. L., Hänfling, B., & Gomez, A. (2013). High lability of sexual system over 250 million years of evolution in morphologically conservative tadpole shrimps. BMC evolutionary biology, 13(1), (30). doi:10.1186/1471-2148-13-30. ISSN 1471-2148

Background Sexual system is a key factor affecting the genetic diversity, population structure, genome structure and the evolutionary potential of species. The sexual system androdioecy – where males and hermaphrodites coexist in populations – is ext... Read More
