Phylogenetics, classification, and biogeography of the treefrogs (Amphibia: Anura: Arboranae).
A phylogenetic analysis of sequences from 503 species of hylid frogs and four outgroup taxa resulted in 16,128 aligned sites of 19 genes. The molecular data were subjected to a maximum likelihoodExpand

A taxonomic framework for typhlopid snakes from the Caribbean and other regions (Reptilia, Squamata)
The evolutionary history and taxonomy of worm-like snakes (scolecophidians) continues to be refined as new molecular data are gathered and analyzed. Here we present additional evidence on theExpand
