Cryptic vicariance in the historical assembly of a Baja California peninsular desert biota.
We use analyses of phylogeographic population structure across a suite of 12 mammalian, avian, amphibian, and reptilian species and species-groups to assess the role of Late Miocene to PleistoceneExpand

Cryptic Neogene vicariance and Quaternary dispersal of the red‐spotted toad (Bufo punctatus): insights on the evolution of North American warm desert biotas
We define the geographical distributions of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) lineages embedded within a broadly distributed, arid‐dwelling toad, Bufo punctatus. These patterns were evaluated as they relateExpand

Phylogeography and systematics of the Peromyscus eremicus species group and the historical biogeography of North American warm regional deserts.
Phylogeographic relationships among 26 populations from throughout the geographic range of the Peromyscus eremicus species group are described based on sequence data for a 699-bp fragment of theExpand

Comparative phylogeography of Baileys' pocket mouse (Chaetodipus baileyi) and the Peromyscus eremicus species group: historical vicariance of the Baja California Peninsular Desert.
Phylogenetic analysis of 699 bp of the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) COIII and 450 bp of the cytochrome b genes among 14 species of coarse-haired pocket mice (Heteromyidae: Chaetodipus) corroboratedExpand

Molecular Biogeography in the Pocket Mice (Perognathus and Chaetodipus) and Grasshopper Mice (Onychomys): the Late Cenozoic Development of a North American Aridlands Rodent Guild
Paleoecological and geological evidence previously have been used to infer a sequential development of arid landscapes in western North America composed of: a gradual Miocene development of savannaExpand

Basal Clades and Molecular Systematics of Heteromyid Rodents
Abstract The New World rodent family Heteromyidae shows a marvelous array of ecomorphological types, from bipedal, arid-adapted forms to scansorial, tropical-adapted forms. Although recent studiesExpand

Ploidy race distributions since the Last Glacial Maximum in the North American desert shrub, Larrea tridentata
A classic biogeographic pattern is the alignment of diploid, tetraploid and hexaploid races of creo- sote bush ( Larrea tridentata ) across the Chihua- huan, Sonoran and Mohave Deserts of westernExpand

A step-wise approach to integrating phylogeographic and phylogenetic biogeographic perspectives on the history of a core North American warm deserts biota
In this paper, we develop a five-step approach for analysis of historical relationships among areas of endemism using a set of 22 clades (9 mammal, 7 bird, 4 reptile, 1 amphibian, and 1 cactus) drawnExpand
