Abstract. The freshwater flatworm Crenobia alpina (Platyhelminthes, Tricladida, Planariidae) lives almost exclusively in cold springs and crenal streams and possesses only limited dispersal ability. In this study fragments of the COI and 18S rRNA genes were used to estimate genetic divergences among 37 C. alpina populations from the European Alps. Phylogenetic analyses revealed five geographically and genetically distinct groups and at least 10 distinct lineages of C. alpina across the European ...

'Summary' I. 'Entire clades decline while others persist; we suggest this might reflect an eco-evolutionary feedback between habitat similarity among clade members, their co-occurrence, and their reduced vulnerability to environmental change' II. 'Definitions, and methods used to infer tentative evidence from published results' III. 'The interface between variation in habitat use within clades and the assembly of local communities: clade members occupying similar habitats tend to locally co-occu...

Abstract Plant diversity and land-use intensity have been shown to affect invertebrate herbivory. Several hypotheses predict positive (e.g. associational susceptibility) or negative (e.g. associational resistance) relationships of herbivory with plant species richness. Also, the strength and direction of reported relationships vary greatly between studies leading to the conclusion that relationships either depend on the specific system studied or that other unconsidered factors are more importan...

The nearly universal positive relationship between the distribution and abundance of species has been explained by several hypotheses but hitherto no consensus has been reached. Here, we used monitoring data of 105 phytophagous true bug species (Heteroptera) from 150 grassland sites over six years, to test how (1) range-position, (2) resource-use, (3) resource-availability, (4) density-dependent habitat selection, (5) metapopulation dynamics and (6) habitat-dispersal affect the distribution-abun...

Theory suggests that the structure of evolutionary history represented in a species community may affect its functioning, but phylogenetic diversity metrics do not allow for the identification of major differences in this structure. Here we propose a new metric, ELDERness (for Evolutionary Legacy of DivERsity) to estimate evolutionary branching patterns within communities by fitting a polynomial function to lineage-through-time (LTT) plots. We illustrate how real and simulated community branchin...

Polyploidy in combination with parthenogenesis offers advantages for plasticity and the evolution of a broad ecological tolerance of species. Therefore, a positive correlation between the level of ploidy and increasing latitude as a surrogate for environmental harshness has been suggested. Such a positive correlation is well documented for plants, but examples for animals are still rare. Species of flatworms (Platyhelminthes) are widely distributed, show a remarkably wide range of chromosome num...

Abstract While specialized species are linked to a particular resource, omnivorous species may switch between food items according to the availability and the quality of resources. Here we use larvae of the omnivorous caddisfly genus Hydropsyche (Trichoptera) to analyse changes in diet composition across an elevational gradient. Periphyton and Hydropsyche larvae were sampled from 22 populations at stream orders from 2 to 5 on the German part of the Bohemian Forest. Elevations of sampling sites r...
