A New Morphological Phylogeny of the Ophiuroidea (Echinodermata) Accords with Molecular Evidence and Renders Microfossils Accessible for Cladistics

Author(s) : Ben Thuy, Sabine Stöhr Source : Plos One, Published: May 26, 2016, http://dx.doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0156140 Abstract : Ophiuroid systematics is currently in a state of upheaval, with recent molecular estimates fundamentally clashing with traditional, morphology-based classifications. Here, we attempt a long overdue recast of a morphological phylogeny estimate of the Ophiuroidea taking into account latest.. Lire la suite

CORSAIR: Space geodesy by means of SAR Interferometry (InSAR) at the pan-African continental rifting zone

ALOS_Asc_mix

The East African Rift is a 6000 km long faulted structure that extends from Ethiopia to Mozambique and where the African plate is splitting in two. It is the largest continental rifting zones on Earth but it is also the less known plate boundaries. The CORSAIR project aims at studying local-scale magmatism (<50 km) and.. Lire la suite
