A new species of arboreal Leptopelis (Anura: Arthroleptidae) from forests of western Kenya
A new species of arboreal Leptopelis is described from Kakamega Forest, western Kenya. It is a small, brown forest species formerly referred to L. modestus, but distinguished by differences inExpand
Vanishing refuge? Testing the forest refuge hypothesis in coastal East Africa using genome‐wide sequence data for seven amphibians
High‐throughput sequencing data have greatly improved our ability to understand the processes that contribute to current biodiversity patterns. The “vanishing refuge” diversification model isExpand
ABSTRACT Herpetofaunal surveys of the Tana River Primate National Reserve were conducted between December 1998 and January 2002 to generate a species list. Systematic search–and–seize, visualExpand
Diet composition of Xenopus borealis in Taita Hills: effects of habitat and predator size
Frogs in the genus Xenopus are ubiquitous in sub-Saharan Africa, yet very little is recorded on their ecology. They are commonly found in anthropogenically disturbed habitats, but how do theseExpand
A new Reed Frog (Hyperoliidae: Hyperolius) from coastal northeastern Mozambique.
A new species of African reed frog (genus Hyperolius Rapp, 1842) is described from the Coastal Forests of the Eastern Africa Biodiversity Hotspot in northeastern Mozambique. It is currently onlyExpand
Environmental correlates of phylogenetic endemism in amphibians and the conservation of refugia in the Coastal Forests of Eastern Africa
Aims To quantify the spatial distribution of amphibian phylogenetic endemism (PE), an indicator of potential refugia, to test PE for correlations with current and historical environmentalExpand
Amphibian Diversity in Shimba Hills National Reserve, Kenya: A Comprehensive List of Specimens and Species
ABSTRACT We present the first annotated amphibian checklist of Shimba Hills National Reserve (SHNR). The list comprises of 30 currently known amphibians (28 anurans and two caecilians), whichExpand
Kitobo Forest of Kenya, a unique hotspot of herpetofaunal diversity
Herpetologically, the remoteness of Kitobo forest in south-eastern Kenya has partly contributed to it remaining virtually un-explored until 2007. Three surveys were conducted in December 2007,Expand
