Ecotypic variation in the context of global climate change: revisiting the rules.
This work examines several well-known ecogeographical rules, especially those pertaining to body size in contemporary, historical and fossil taxa, and reviews the evidence showing that rules of geographical variation in response to variation in the local environment can also apply to morphological changes through time in Response to climate change.
Explosive Pleistocene range expansion leads to widespread Amazonian sympatry between robust and gracile capuchin monkeys
Genetic data is used to test whether Miocene or Plio‐Pleistocene processes may explain capuchin species’ present distributions, and to consider three possible scenarios to explain widespread sympatry.
A New Genus of African Monkey, Rungwecebus: Morphology, Ecology, and Molecular Phylogenetics
Detailed molecular phylogenetic analyses of this specimen demonstrate that the genus Lophocebus is diphyletic, and provide a description of a new genus of African monkey and of the only preserved specimen of this primate.

A collaborative group of field and laboratory biologists employ a suite of methodological and analytical tools to investigate the vertebrate portion of Madagascar's fauna, and formulate hypotheses of species identity that serve as the foundation for subsequent studies of biology and history.
Colonization from divergent ancestors: glaciation signatures on contemporary patterns of genomic variation in Collared Pikas (Ochotona collaris)
Based on ENMs and genetic data, populations originating from a northern refugium experienced longer‐term stability, whereas both southern lineages underwent population expansion – contradicting the southern stability and northern expansion patterns seen in many other taxa.
