    Citation: BMC Evolutionary Biology 2019 19(Suppl 1):46
  2. Many earthworm species demonstrate significant cryptic diversity, with several highly diverged mitochondrial lineages found within most of the taxa studied to date. The status of differences between these line...

    Citation: BMC Evolutionary Biology 2019 19(Suppl 1):50
  3. Heterotachy is the variation in the evolutionary rate of aligned sites in different parts of the phylogenetic tree. It occurs mainly due to epistatic interactions among the substitutions, which are highly comp...

    Citation: BMC Evolutionary Biology 2019 19(Suppl 1):47
  4. Maternally inherited Wolbachia symbionts infect D. melanogaster populations worldwide. Infection rates vary greatly. Genetic diversity of Wolbachia in D. melanogaster can be subdivided into several closely relate...

    Citation: BMC Evolutionary Biology 2019 19(Suppl 1):44
  7. Members of different sections of the genus Linum are characterized by wide variability in size, morphology and number of chromosomes in karyotypes. Since such variability is determined mainly by the amount and co...
