Universal binary Hermitian forms
All of the integral positive definite Hermitian lattices in imaginary quadratic fields of class number 1 that represent all positive integers are determined. Expand
Comparative skull osteology of the lacertid lizards Eremias persica and Mesalina watsonana (Sauria: Lacertidae)
The skull of two lacertid lizards of Iran including Eremias persica from Isfahan Province, Central Iranian Plateau and Mesalina watsonana was described and compared based on seven dry skull preparations to contribute to the baseline understanding of squamate osteology and facilitate further studies on Lacertid morphological disparity.

A new species of the genus Microgecko Nikolsky, 1907 (Sauria: Gekkonidae) from southern Iran.
A new species of the dwarf geckos of the recently revived genus Microgecko Nikolsky, 1907 is described based on two and single specimens from southeastern and southern Iran, based on combinations of scalation characters and distinct morphology, coloration and habitat peculiarities in calcareous mountains.

New records of lacertid genera, Iranolacerta and Apathya (Sauria: Lacertidae) in Iran
This report presents a new record of Iranolacerta brandtii brandtii from 30 km south of Tekab City, West Azarbaijan Province and 130 km south of the previously known distribution range of theExpand
Molecular and morphological analyses have revealed a new species of blunt-nosed viper of the genus Macrovipera in Iran
A new species of blunt-nosed viper of the genus Macrovipera is described from the central and southern parts of Iran on the basis of morphological and molecular examination. The mitochondrial CytbExpand
The first taxonomic revaluation of the Iranian water frogs of the genus Pelophylax (Anura: Ranidae) using sequences of the mitochondrial genome
It is suggested that two distinct species, P. bedriagae and Pelophylax sp. Expand
Analysis of sexual dimorphism in the Persian long-tailed desert lizard, Mesalina watsonana (Stoliczka, 1872; Sauria: Lacertidae)
It is suggested that in Mesalina watsonana, body size could be the product of sexual and natural selection modified by ecological factors and head size parameter has a more pronounced effect on the degree of sexual dimorphism than the length factors. Expand
A brief history and current status of herpetology in Iran
In this paper, we present a brief history of herpetology in Iran, discuss its current status, and review some important works carried out by Iranian and non-Iranian herpetologists. Current problems,Expand
Solute transport via alternating-direction collocation using the modified method of characteristics
Abstract We present a finite-element collocation method for modeling underground solute transport in two space dimensions when advection is dominant. The scheme uses a modified method ofExpand
Representation of Integers by Positive Definite Binary Hermitian Lattices over Imaginary Quadratic Fields
Abstract Let L be a positive definite binary integral hermitian lattice over an imaginary quadratic field, and let E ( L ) denote the number of integers (possibly infinite) which are represented byExpand
