The genetic connectivity of diplodus capensis (blacktail) and neoscorpis lithophilus (stonebream) fish populations in the Southwest Indian Ocean. (2016)Abstract available in PDF file.
A phylogeny of South African east coast intertidal rocky-shore Polychaete worms (Annelida) and the genetic structure and demographic history of an example, Marphysa corallina. (2015)The Annelida is an evolutionarily ancient invertebrate taxon. Recent studies have found that the formerly described sister taxon of the Polychaeta, Clitellata, is a derived Polychaete group thus making Polychaeta a ...
A re-appraisal of the holothuroid genera Pseudocnus Panning, 1949 and Pseudocnella Thandar, 1987 based on morphological and, for the latter, also molecular evidence (Echinodermata : Holothuroidea : Dendrochirotida : Cucumariidae) After the erection of the genus Pseudocnella by Thandar (1987) to accommodate three southern African Cucumariids and a Mediterranean form, then classified in Pseudocnus, certain problems still remained. In addition to this ...
