Recently, technological progress and the rise of DNA barcoding efforts have led to a significant increase in the availability of molecular datasets on intraspecific variability. Carcinologists and other organismal biologists, who want to use molecular tools to investigate patterns on the scale of populations, face a bewildering variety of genetic m

Table of Contents

ANALYSES OF POPULATION GENETICS: GUIDELINES AND DEVELOPMENTS: Analyzing intraspecific genetic variation: a practical guide using mitochondrial DNA and microsatellites. Detecting and measuring genetic differentiation. Rethinking the mechanisms that shape marine decapod population structure. Causes of chaos: spatial and temporal genetic heterogeneity in the intertidal anomuran crab Petrolisthes cinctipes. POPULATION GENETICS AND PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF MARINE CRUSTACEANS: Comparative phylogeography of Indo-West Pacific intertidal barnacles. Evolution and conservation of marine biodiversity in the Coral Triangle: insights from stomatopod Crustacea. Comparative phylogeography of three achelate lobster species from Macaronesia (northeast Atlantic). Genetic variation and differentiation of Fenneropenaeus merguiensis in the Thai Peninsula. Population genetics in the rocky shore crab Pachygrapsus marmoratus from the western Mediterranean and eastern Atlantic: complementary results from mtDNA and microsatellites at different geographic scales. POPULATION GENETICS AND PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF LIMNIC CRUSTACEANS: The history of the Daphnia pulex complex: asexuality, hybridization, and polyploidy. Phylogeographic patterns in Artemia: a model organism for hypersaline crustaceans. Intraspecific geographic differentiation and patterns of endemism in freshwater shrimp species flocks in ancient lakes of Sulawesi. Molecular and conservation biogeography of freshwater caridean shrimps in north-western Australia. Comparing phylogeographic patterns across the Patagonian Andes in two freshwater crabs of the genus Aegla (Decapoda: Aeglidae). Molecular diversity of river versus lake freshwater anomurans in southern Chile (Decapoda: Aeglidae) and morphometric differentiation between species and sexes. Population structure of two crayfish with diverse physiological requirements. Shallow phylogeogra
