A new paper titled ‘Desert Springs: Deep Phylogeographic Structure in an Ancient Endemic Crustacean (Phreatomerus latipes)‘ investigates the Australian desert and the diverse multitude of animals that call the arid landscape home. The paper specifically focuses on the diverse variety of fauna that exist throughout the Great Artesian Basin in central Australia.

The paper involves Environment Institute members Michelle Guzik, Andrew Austin, Mark Adams and Steven Cooper ( both also of the South Australian Museum), and Nicholas Murphy (La Trobe University) and has been published in PLoS One
