Heuer, Carsten M.; Müller, Carsten H.G.; Todt, Christiane; Loesel, Rudi (BioMed Central, 2010-05-04)Background Paired mushroom bodies, an unpaired central complex, and bilaterally arranged clusters of olfactory glomeruli are among the most distinctive components of arthropod neuroarchitecture. Mushroom body neuropils, ...Peer reviewedJournal article
Fast evolving 18S rRNA sequences from Solenogastres (Mollusca) resist standard PCR amplification and give new insights into mollusk substitution rate heterogeneity Meyer, Achim; Todt, Christiane; Mikkelsen, Nina T.; Lieb, Bernhard (BioMed Central, 2010-03-09)Background: The 18S rRNA gene is one of the most important molecular markers, used in diverse applications such as molecular phylogenetic analyses and biodiversity screening. The Mollusca is the second largest phylum ...Peer reviewedJournal article
Of tests, trochs, shells, and spicules: Development of the basal mollusk Wirenia argentea (Solenogastres) and its bearing on the evolution of trochozoan larval key features Todt, Christiane; Wanninger, Andreas (BioMed Central, 2010-01-26)Background The phylogenetic status of the aplacophoran mollusk taxon Solenogastres (Neomeniomorpha) is controversially discussed. Some authors propose the clade to represent the most basal branch within Mollusca, while ...Peer reviewedJournal article
