Data from: A reliable DNA barcode reference library for the identification of the European shelf fish fauna

Thomas Knebelsberger, Gary R. Carvalho, Silke Laakmann, Michael J. Raupach, Hermann Neumann, Patrick D. Campbell, Monica Landi & Filipe O. Costa
Valid fish species identification is an essential step both for fundamental science and fisheries management. The traditional identification is mainly based on external morphological diagnostic characters, leading to inconsistent results in many cases. Here, we provide a sequence reference library based on mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) for a valid identification of 93 North Atlantic fish species originating from the North Sea and adjacent waters, including many commercially exploited species. Neighbour-joining analysis based...

Data from: Phylogeographic analysis of Ligia oceanica (Crustacea: Isopoda) reveals two deep divergent mitochondrial lineages

Michael Raupach, Olaf Bininda-Emonds, Thomas Knebelsberger, Silke Laakmann, Jobst Pfaender & Florian Leese
Isopods of the species Ligia oceanica are typical inhabitants of the rocky intertidal of the northern European coastline. The aim of this study was to assess the genetic structure of this species using mitochondrial and nuclear sequence data. We analysed partial mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (CO1) and 16S rRNA gene sequence data of 161 specimens collected from ten sites ranging from Spain to Norway. For selected specimens, we also sequenced the hypervariable V7...

Data from: Molecular diversity of Germany’s freshwater fishes and lampreys assessed by DNA barcoding

Thomas Knebelsberger, Andreas R. Dunz, Dirk Neumann & Matthias F. Geiger
This study represents the first comprehensive molecular assessment of freshwater fishes and lampreys from Germany. We analysed COI sequences for almost 80% of the species mentioned in the current German Red List. In total, 1056 DNA barcodes belonging to 92 species from all major drainages were used to (i) build a reliable DNA barcode reference library, (ii) test for phylogeographic patterns, (iii) check for the presence of barcode gaps between species and (iv) evaluate the...
