Phylogenomics reveals the history of host use in mosquitoes

NATURE COMMUNICATIONS, 14(1).

By: J. Soghigian n, C. Sither n, S. Justi*, G. Morinaga*, B. Cassel n, C. Vitek*, T. Livdahl*, S. Xia* ...

TL;DR: An origin of mosquitoes in the early Triassic is supported, considerably older than previous estimates and that mosquito diversification and host-use patterns within major lineages appear to coincide in earth history both with major continental drift events and with the diversification of vertebrate classes.

Beyond Drosophila: resolving the rapid radiation of schizophoran flies with phylotranscriptomics

BMC BIOLOGY, 19(1).

By: K. Bayless*, M. Trautwein*, K. Meusemann*, S. Shin n, M. Petersen*, A. Donath*, L. Podsiadlowski*, C. Mayer* ...

author keywords: Diptera; Phylogenomics; Transcriptomes; Drosophilidae; Tephritidae

Phylogenomics reveals accelerated late Cretaceous diversification of bee flies (Diptera: Bombyliidae)

CLADISTICS, 37(3), 276–297.

By: X. Li*, L. Teasdale*, K. Bayless*, A. Ellis*, B. Wiegmann n, C. Lamas*, C. Lambkin*, N. Evenhuis* ...

author keywords: Diptera; divergence times reconstruction; lower Brachycera; maximum likelihood
MeSH headings : Animals; Bees / classification; Bees / genetics; Bees / physiology; Biodiversity; Evolution, Molecular; Larva / genetics; Larva / physiology; Phylogeny; Sequence Analysis, DNA; Transcriptome
TL;DR: The dating analyses indicate a Jurassic origin of the Bombyliidae, with the sand chamber evolving early in bee fly evolution, in the late Jurassic or mid‐Cretaceous, and it is hypothesized that the angiosperm radiation and the hothouse climate established during the late Cretaceous accelerated the diversification of bee flies.

Contributors: M. Thoemmes n, D. Fergus n, J. Urban*, M. Trautwein n & R. Dunn n

MeSH headings : Adolescent; Adult; Animals; Female; Genes, rRNA; Genetic Variation; Hair Follicle / parasitology; Humans; Male; Middle Aged; Mite Infestations / epidemiology; Mites / classification; Mites / genetics; Phylogeny; Prevalence; RNA, Ribosomal, 16S / genetics; RNA, Ribosomal, 18S / genetics; Sebaceous Glands / parasitology; United States / epidemiology
TL;DR: A phylogenetic analysis of 18S rDNA reveals intraspecific structure within one of the two named human-associated Demodex species, D. brevis, suggesting that new lineages are likely to be discovered as humans from additional geographic regions are sampled. (via Semantic Scholar)

Toward a Mechanistic Understanding of Linguistic Diversity

BIOSCIENCE, 63(7), 524–535.

By: M. Gavin, C. Botero n, C. Bowern*, R. Colwell*, M. Dunn*, R. Dunn n, R. Gray*, K. Kirby* ...

Contributors: M. Gavin, C. Botero n, C. Bowern*, R. Colwell*, M. Dunn*, R. Dunn n, R. Gray*, K. Kirby* ...

author keywords: linguistic diversity; biogeography and ecology; geographic patterns; research methods; languages
TL;DR: It is suggested that future analyses should account for interactions among causal factors, the lack of spatial and phylogenetic independence of the data, and transitory patterns, and future modeling approaches should also evaluate how the outcomes of these processes are influenced by demography, environmental heterogeneity, and time.

Tracing the Rise of Ants - Out of the Ground

PLOS ONE, 8(12).

By: A. Lucky n, M. Trautwein n, B. Guenard n, M. Weiser n & R. Dunn n

Contributors: A. Lucky n, M. Trautwein n, B. Guenard n, M. Weiser n & R. Dunn n

MeSH headings : Animals; Ants; Ecosystem; Evolution, Molecular; Hot Temperature; Phylogeny; Plant Leaves; Soil; Statistics as Topic
TL;DR: This work reconstructs the habitat transitions of crown-group ants through time, focusing on where they nest and forage (in the canopy, litter, or soil), and shows that in contrast to the current consensus based on verbal arguments that ants evolved in tropical leaf litter, the soil is supported as the ancestral stratum of all ants.

2012 review

A view from the edge of the forest: recent progress in understanding the relationships of the insect orders

[Review of ]. AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL OF ENTOMOLOGY, 51, 79–87.

By: D. Yeates*, S. Cameron* & M. Trautwein n

author keywords: Dictyoptera; holometabola; insecta; Palaeoptera; Paraneoptera; Polyneoptera
TL;DR: The enigmatic order Strepsiptera, the twisted wing insects, have now been placed firmly near Coleoptera, rejecting their close relationship to Diptera that was proposed some 15years ago primarily based on ribosomal DNA data. (via Semantic Scholar)

A multigene phylogeny of the fly superfamily Asiloidea (Insecta): Taxon sampling and additional genes reveal the sister-group to all higher flies (Cyclorrhapha)

MOLECULAR PHYLOGENETICS AND EVOLUTION, 56(3), 918–930.

By: M. Trautwein n, B. Wiegmann n & D. Yeates*

author keywords: Diptera; Asiloidea; Apystomyia; Eremoneura; Cyclorrhapha; Taxon sampling; Rogue taxa; Rapid radiation; Four-cluster likelihood mapping; Additional genes; Topological stability; Congruence
MeSH headings : Animals; Cluster Analysis; DNA, Ribosomal / genetics; Diptera / classification; Diptera / genetics; Evolution, Molecular; Genes, Insect; Likelihood Functions; Nuclear Proteins / genetics; Phylogeny; RNA, Ribosomal, 18S / genetics; Sequence Analysis, DNA
TL;DR: This work uses the nuclear protein-coding gene CAD and 28S rDNA to test the monophyly of Asiloidea and to resolve its relationship to Eremoneura, finding that the 'asiloid' genus Apystomyia is sister to Cyclorrhapha and the remaining asiloids are monophyletic at the exclusion of the family Bombyliidae.

Single-copy nuclear genes resolve the phylogeny of the holometabolous insects

BMC BIOLOGY, 7.

By: B. Wiegmann n, M. Trautwein n, J. Kim n, B. Cassel n, M. Bertone n, S. Winterton*, D. Yeates*

MeSH headings : Animals; Base Sequence; Bayes Theorem; Evolution, Molecular; Genes, Insect; Hymenoptera / genetics; Insecta / classification; Insecta / genetics; Insecta / growth & development; Likelihood Functions; Metamorphosis, Biological / genetics; Phylogeny
TL;DR: Evidence from nucleotide sequences of six single-copy nuclear protein coding genes used to reconstruct phylogenetic relationships and estimate evolutionary divergence times is presented, finding strong support for a close relationship between Coleoptera (beetles) and Strepsiptera, a previously proposed, but analytically controversial relationship.
