Abstract

The aims of this study are to establish a multi-locus phylogeny-based

hypothesis for the biogeographical relationship of gastropods from the putative

ancient Lake Eg^irdir, to test the respective null hypothesis, to estimate the timing

of biogeographical events based on independent molecular clock approaches, and

to interpret the data with respect to the putative ancient character of Lake Eg^irdir.
