Mostly, gills are simple lamellate structures, but in decapods they can assume three elaborate morphologies: trichobranchiate, phyllobranchiate and dendrobranchiate. The dendrobranchiate gill, typically found among the suborder Dendrobranchiata, primarily consists of a long central axis, from which arises a series of paired secondary branches. Each...

The Northeast Atlantic (NEA) is an important and complex biogeographic region with a very rich marine fauna. However, little is known about the role of the Macaronesian islands in the evolutionary history and diversification of marine invertebrates in the NEA. Among the amphipods, the members of the family Hyalidae are particularly common and abund...

The whale louse Cyamus boopis is a host-specific amphipod that parasitizes humpback whales (Megaptera no-vaeangliae) across the world. Humpback whales from the Southern Hemisphere are currently separated into seven breeding stocks, each with its own migration route to/from Antarctic waters. The aim of this study was to determine the population stru...

Southern right whales (Eubalaena australis) are known to host three species of whale-lice, Cyamus gracilis, Cyamus ovalis and Cyamus erraticus. Such cyamids usually are generalists in toothed whales (Cetacea: Odontoceti) and hostspecific in baleen whales (Cetacea: Mysticeti), and because they have no free-swimming stage, transmission only occurs by...

Conference Paper
Understanding the spatial patterns of species and genetic diversity has been one of the main focuses in ecology. It is important to explore the evolutionary processes related to the origin of a species, and the factors influencing its genetic structure. The use of a standard system, like the DNA barcode, can assist in the identification and discrim...
