Our paper <Marine connectivity dynamics: clarifying cosmopolitan distributions of marine interstitial invertebrates and the meiofauna paradox> is out in @Mar_Biology 😁

1/n Here's a summary of what we found and discussed (and a personal significance at the end):
* We did a literature survey and analyzed 700+ contributions
* Despite including keywords such as 'molecular OR cryptic OR ... dispersal OR phylo* OR biogeo* OR distribut*' only 7 contributions (>1%) focused on evolutionary biology!
2/n
* Ecology and Taxonomy made up nearly 95% (488; 235 respectively) ... with a majority of contributions focusing on nematodes and arthropods (harpacticoid copepods).
* Paleontology, Development and Physiology added up to only 31 contributions!
