Aplacophoran mollusks evolved from ancestors with polyplacophoran-like features
Mollusca is an animal phylum with vast morphological diversity and includes worm-shaped aplacophorans, snails, bivalves, and the complex cephalopods . The interrelationships of these class-level taxa are still contentious ...
Original specimens and type localities of early described polychaete species (Annelida) from Norway, with particular attention to species described by O.F. Müller and M. Sars
(Museum Victoria, 2014)
Early descriptions of species from Norwegian waters are reviewed, with a focus on the basic requirements for reassessing their characteristics, in particular, by clarifying the status of the original material and locating ...

(BioMed Central, 2013-06-03)
Background: A skewed assemblage of two epi-, meso- and bathypelagic fish families makes up the order Myctophiformes – the blackchins Neoscopelidae and the lanternfishes Myctophidae. The six rare neoscopelids show few ...

Molecular phylogeny of bark and ambrosia beetles reveals multiple origins of fungus farming during periods of global warming
(BioMed Central, 2012-08-01)
Background: Fungus farming is an unusual life style in insects that has evolved many times in the wood boring weevils named ‘ambrosia beetles’. Multiple occurrences of this behaviour allow for a detailed ...
Visions of the Invisible: Seventeenth- and Early Eighteenth-Century Emblems in Norway
