Species delimitation studies based on integrative taxonomic approaches have received considerable attention in the last few years, and have provided the strongest hypotheses of species boundaries. We used three lines of evidence (molecular, morphological, and niche envelopes) to test for species boundaries in Peruvian populations of the Liolaemus walkeri(More)
An integrative taxonomic analysis used to identify a new population of Bronchocela from Phuket Island, Thailand indicates it is conspecific with B. rayaensis from the Langkawi Archipelago of northwestern Peninsular Malaysia. An additional specimen photographed from Khura Buri District, Phang-nga Province is also considered to be B. rayaensis and represents(More)
In this paper we propose a method to exploit analytical definitions extracted from Spanish corpora, in order to build a lexical network based on the hy-ponymy/hyperonymy, part/whole and attribution relations. Our method considers the following steps: (a) the recognition and extraction of defini-tional contexts from specialized documents, (b) the(More)
We expose a method for extracting hyponyms and hypernyms from analytical definitions, focusing on the relation observed between hypernyms and relational adjectives (e.g., cardiovascular disease). These adjectives introduce a set of specialized features according to a categorization proper to a particular knowledge domain. For detecting these sequences of(More)
In this paper we present a method for automatically extracting definitional contexts from restricted domains in Spanish. Definitional contexts are textual fragments where there is an implicit definition that can be identified by taking into account verbal patterns linking a term and its corresponding definition. Our interest is in definitional contexts with(More)
A new species of limestone cave-adapted gecko of the Cyrtodactylus pulchellus complex, C. hidupselamanya sp. nov., is described from an isolated karst formation at Felda Chiku 7, Kelantan, Peninsular Malaysia. This formation is scheduled to be completely quarried for its mineral content. From what we know about the life history of C. hidupselamanya sp.(More)
