DIVERSIFICATION OF RAINFOREST FAUNAS: An Integrated Molecular Approach
▪ Abstract Understanding the evolutionary processes that generate and sustain diversity in tropical faunas has challenged biologists for over a century and should underpin conservation strategies.Expand

The genome of the green anole lizard and a comparative analysis with birds and mammals
The evolution of the amniotic egg was one of the great evolutionary innovations in the history of life, freeing vertebrates from an obligatory connection to water and thus permitting the conquest ofExpand

Comparative phylogeography and the history of endemic vertebrates in the Wet Tropics rainforests of Australia
We examine the effects of historical climate change on vertebrate differentiation in tropical rainforest by comparing phylogeographic patterns in six species of widespread rainforest-restrictedExpand

INTEGRATING PHYLOGENETICS AND ENVIRONMENTAL NICHE MODELS TO EXPLORE SPECIATION MECHANISMS IN DENDROBATID FROGS
Abstract We developed an approach that combines distribution data, environmental geographic information system layers, environmental niche models, and phylogenetic information to investigateExpand

Acoustic divergence in two cryptic Hipposideros species: a role for social selection?
We present evidence that a relatively widespread and common bat from South East Asia comprises two morphologically cryptic but acoustically divergent species. A population of the bicolouredExpand

Local Endemism Within the Western Ghats-Sri Lanka Biodiversity Hotspot
The apparent biotic affinities between the mainland and the island in the Western Ghats–Sri Lanka biodiversity hotspot have been interpreted as the result of frequent migrations during recent periodsExpand

Latitude, elevational climatic zonation and speciation in New World vertebrates
Many biodiversity hotspots are located in montane regions, especially in the tropics. A possible explanation for this pattern is that the narrow thermal tolerances of tropical species and greaterExpand

EVOLUTIONARY RELATIONSHIPS WITHIN THE ENSATINA ESCHSCHOLTZII COMPLEX CONFIRM THE RING SPECIES INTERPRETATION
Sequences (644-681 bp) from the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene were obtained for 24 individuals representing the geographic range and morphological diversity of the polytypic salamander ring speciesExpand

A test of alternative models of diversification in tropical rainforests: ecological gradients vs. rainforest refugia.
Comparison of mitochondrial and morphological divergence in eight populations of a widespread leaf-litter skink is used to determine the relative importance of geographic isolation and naturalExpand
