A taxonomic framework for typhlopid snakes from the Caribbean and other regions (Reptilia, Squamata)
The evolutionary history and taxonomy of worm-like snakes (scolecophidians) continues to be refined as new molecular data are gathered and analyzed. Here we present additional evidence on theExpand

Blindsnake evolutionary tree reveals long history on Gondwana
Worm-like snakes (scolecophidians) are small, burrowing species with reduced vision. Although largely neglected in vertebrate research, knowledge of their biogeographical history is crucial forExpand

Molecular evidence for an Asian origin of monitor lizards followed by Tertiary dispersals to Africa and Australasia
Monitor lizards are emblematic reptiles that are widely distributed in the Old World. Although relatively well studied in vertebrate research, their biogeographic history is still controversial. WeExpand

The Timetree of Prokaryotes: New Insights into Their Evolution and Speciation.
The increasing size of timetrees in recent years has led to a focus on diversification analyses to better understand patterns of macroevolution. Thus far, nearly all studies have been conducted withExpand

Hidden species diversity of Australian burrowing snakes (Ramphotyphlops)
The worm-like snakes (Scolecophidia; approximately 400 nominal extant species) have a conservative morphology and are among the most poorly-known terrestrial vertebrates. Although molecular evidenceExpand

Comparative phylogeography of African fruit bats (Chiroptera, Pteropodidae) provide new insights into the outbreak of Ebola virus disease in West Africa, 2014-2016.
Both Ebolavirus and Marburgvirus were detected in several fruit bat species of the family Pteropodidae, suggesting that this taxon plays a key role in the life cycle of filoviruses. After fourExpand

Rapid birth-and-death evolution of the xenobiotic metabolizing NAT gene family in vertebrates with evidence of adaptive selection
BackgroundThe arylamine N-acetyltransferases (NATs) are a unique family of enzymes widely distributed in nature that play a crucial role in the detoxification of aromatic amine xenobiotics.Expand
