Phylogeny of the Asian Eutropis (Squamata: Scincidae) reveals an 'into India' endemic Indian radiation.
The Out-of-India hypothesis: What do molecules suggest?
Re-evaluation of published molecular studies indicates that there is mounting evidence supporting Out-of-India scenario for various Asian taxa, but in many studies the evidence is inconclusive due to lack of information on the age of relevant nodes.

This work combined extensive geographical and genetic sampling from across multiple biogeographical realms to examine the timing and location of diversification in Asian sun skinks, a clade characterized by problematic species boundaries and a particularly enigmatic evolutionary history.
Diversification in the mountains: a generic reappraisal of the Western Ghats endemic gecko genus Dravidogecko Smith, 1933 (Squamata: Gekkonidae) with descriptions of six new species.

Timetree analysis reveals late Miocene cladogenesis in this group and establishes late Palaeocene divergence from its sister genus, Hemidactylus, making Dravidogecko one of the earliest, extant lizard lineages to have colonized peninsular India.
The role of wet‐zone fragmentation in shaping biodiversity patterns in peninsular India: insights from the caecilian amphibian Gegeneophis
This work presents the first dated phylogenetic test of these alternatives by inferring relationships and dating divergences within a wet‐zone‐restricted lineage endemic to the Eastern and Western Ghats.
Phylogeny of endemic skinks of the genus Lygosoma (Squamata: Scincidae) from India suggests an in situ radiation
The Indian subcontinent could be considered as an island separated from the mainland (Asia), which harbours many endemic species and its biota is quite distinct from rest of Asia.
An addition to the endemic Indian radiation of Eutropis: Phylogenetic position of Eutropis dissimilis Hallowell (Squamata: Scincidae).

It is demonstrated that the evolution of a clear lower eyelid, which was considered a synapomorphy for the sister genus Trachylepis, has arisen multiple times in Eutropis.

This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, as to provide real-time information about the response of the immune system to the presence of carbon dioxide.
Rediscovery of Geckoella jeyporensis (Squamata: Gekkonidae), with notes on morphology, coloration and habitat
A detailed morphological description of G. jeyporensis is presented, as well as details of life coloration and notes on its habitat, based on the new specimens and published morphological data of the holotype.
