Species concepts and species delimitation.
TLDR
A unified species concept can be achieved by treating existence as a separately evolving metapopulation lineage as the only necessary property of species and the former secondary species criteria as different lines of evidence relevant to assessing lineage separation. Expand
The genome of the green anole lizard and a comparative analysis with birds and mammals
TLDR
Comparative gene analysis shows that amniote egg proteins have evolved significantly more rapidly than other proteins, and an anole phylogeny resolves basal branches to illuminate the history of their repeated adaptive radiations. Expand

  • 25 April 2005
TLDR
Reconciliation of incompatible species definitions and the development of a unified species concept require rejecting the interpretation of various contingent properties of metapopulation lineages, including intrinsic reproductive isolation in Mayr's definition, as necessary properties of species. Expand
Toward a phylogenetic system of biological nomenclature.
TLDR
The development of a phylogenetic system of nomenclature requires reformulating these concepts and principles so that they are no longer based on the Linnean categories but on the tenet of common descent. Expand
A Phylogenetic, Biogeographic, and Taxonomic study of all Extant Species of Anolis (Squamata; Iguanidae)
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of all 379 extant species of Anolis, with new phylogenetic data for 139 species including new DNA data for 101 species is presented, using the resulting estimates as a basis for defining anole clade names under the principles of phylogenetic nomenclature and to examine the biogeographic history of anoles. Expand
Species names in phylogenetic nomenclature.
TLDR
Here, 13 methods for naming species in the context of phylogenetic nomenclature are contrasted with each other and with Linnaean binomials and a fundamental dichotomy among the proposed methods distinguishes those that retain the entire binomial of a preexisting species name fromThose that retain only the specific epithet. Expand
Niche lability in the evolution of a Caribbean lizard community
TLDR
It is found that evolutionary divergence overcomes niche conservatism: closely relatedspecies are no more ecologically similar than expected by random divergence and some distantly related species are Ecologically similar, leading to a community in which the relationship between ecological similarity and phylogenetic relatedness is very weak. Expand

TLDR
The proposals in question provide the opportunity for biology to move beyond debates about the definition of the species category and focus on estimating the boundaries and numbers of species as well as studying the diverse processes involved in their origin and persistence. Expand
Partial characterization and anticoagulant activity of a heterofucan from the brown seaweed Padina gymnospora.
TLDR
Structural analysis indicates that 3-O-sulfation at C-3 of 4-alpha-L-fucose 1-> units is responsible for the anticoagulant activity of the polymer, indicating that the brown algae Padina gymnospora contain different fucans. Expand
Admixture determines genetic diversity and population differentiation in the biological invasion of a lizard species
TLDR
Analysis of microsatellite variation supports the hypothesis that lizards from disparate native-range sources, identified using mtDNA haplotypes, form genetically admixed introduced populations of the lizard Anolis sagrei. Expand
