4. Epimutations define a fast-ticking molecular clock in plants.

Stochastic gains and losses of DNA methylation at CG dinucleotides are a frequent occurrence in plants. These spontaneous 'epimutations' occur at a rate that is 100 000 times higher than the genetic mutation rate, are effectively neutral at the genome-wide scale, and are stably inherited across...

12. Transfer of two south American ant species from Tapinoma Foerster 1850 to Forelius emery 1888 (Hymenoptera: Formicidae: Dolichoderinae).

Some species of the ant genus Forelius can be misclassified as the genus Tapinoma due to the convergent reduction of the petiolar scale. I review the taxonomic status of Tapinoma antarcticum Forel 1904 and Tapinoma heyeri Forel 1902. Morphological evidence supports the transfer of these names to...
