An Update of Wallace’s Zoogeographic Regions of the World
Next-Generation Biogeography In 1876, Alfred Russel Wallace mapped the zoogeographical regions of the world, based on the distributions and taxonomic relationships of broadly defined mammalian… Expand
A supermatrix phylogeny of corvoid passerine birds (Aves: Corvides).
- K. Jønsson, P. Fabre, +4 authors J. Fjeldså
- Biology, Medicine
- Molecular phylogenetics and evolution
The Corvides (previously referred to as the core Corvoidea) are a morphologically diverse clade of passerine birds comprising nearly 800 species. The group originated some 30 million years ago in the… Expand
Humboldt’s enigma: What causes global patterns of mountain biodiversity?
Mountains contribute disproportionately to the terrestrial biodiversity of Earth, especially in the tropics, where they host hotspots of extraordinary and puzzling richness. With about 25% of all… Expand
Building mountain biodiversity: Geological and evolutionary processes
Mountain regions are unusually biodiverse, with rich aggregations of small-ranged species that form centers of endemism. Mountains play an array of roles for Earth’s biodiversity and affect… Expand

Reconciling hierarchical taxonomy with molecular phylogenies.
Taxonomy has a history dating back to Aristotle (350BC)andhas facilitatedawide rangeofdevelopments in the biological sciences. Linnaeus’ Systema Naturae assumed that organisms were static creations… Expand
Comparing diversity data collected using a protocol designed for volunteers with results from a professional alternative
Summary 1. In light of the continuing biodiversity crisis, the need for high-resolution, broad-scale ecological data is particularly acute. The expansive scale of volunteer data collection programmes… Expand
Response to Comment on “An Update of Wallace’s Zoogeographic Regions of the World”
Kreft and Jetz’s critique of our recent update of Wallace’s zoogeographical regions disregards the extensive sensitivity analyses we undertook, which demonstrate the robustness of our results to the… Expand

Many insular taxa possess extraordinary abilities to disperse but may differ in their abilities to diversify and compete. While some taxa are widespread across archipelagos, others have disjunct… Expand
Searching for Speciation Genes: Molecular Evidence for Selection Associated with Colour Morphotypes in the Caribbean Reef Fish Genus Hypoplectrus
Closely related species that show clear phenotypic divergence, but without obvious geographic barriers, can provide opportunities to study how diversification can occur when opportunities for… Expand
