    Andreas Tschopp
    Natural History Museum, Department of Invertebrates, Bernastrasse 15, Bern CH 3005, Switzerland
    BMC Evol Biol 13:74. 2013
    ..Ichneumon was previously divided into two groups based on general body shape; however, a stout shape has been suggested as an adaptation to buried host pupation sites, and might thus not represent a reliable phylogenetic character...
  2. doi request reprint Convergent intron gains in hymenopteran elongation factor-1α
    Seraina Klopfstein
    Swedish Museum of Natural History, Box 50007, SE 104 05 Stockholm, Sweden
    Mol Phylogenet Evol 67:266-76. 2013
    ..The significant rate of convergent intron gain renders intron-exon structure unreliable as an indicator of orthology in eEF1A, and probably also in other protein-coding genes...

    Seraina Klopfstein
    Natural History Museum Invertebrates, Bernastrasse 15, CH 3005 Bern, Switzerland
    BMC Evol Biol 10:218. 2010
    ..On the basis of a well-resolved phylogeny, we reconstruct the evolutionary history of antennal coiling and associated morphological modifications to study the mode of evolution of this complex character system...

    Arthropod Struct Dev 39:33-40. 2010
    ..Our method for simulating antennal movement will enable retrieving information about courtship behaviour from museum specimens, thus leading to a better understanding of the evolution of courtship behaviour in Hymenoptera...
