Evidence of a chytrid fungus infection involved in the decline of the common midwife toad (Alytes obstetricans) in protected areas of central Spain
During the summers of 1997, 1998 and 1999 mass mortality episodes of post-metamorphic common midwife toads (Alytes obstetricans) occurred in a protected area in central Spain. The population sufferedExpand
Phylogeography of two European newt species — discordance between mtDNA and morphology
The newts Triturus vulgaris and Triturus montandoni are sister species that exhibit contrasting levels of intraspecific morphological variation. Triturus vulgaris has a broad Eurasiatic distributionExpand
Phylogenetic relationships and biogeography of midwife toads (Discoglossidae: Alytes)
Aim  To devise a robust phylogenetic hypothesis for midwife toads (Alytes: Anura: Discoglossidae) and to discuss its implications for the reconstruction of the biogeographical history of the group.Expand
Molecular diversification of salamanders of the tropical American genus Bolitoglossa (Caudata : Plethodontidae) and its evolutionary and biogeographical implications
The largest genus of salamanders, Bolitoglossa (Plethodontidae), is widespread in tropical America, where it occurs in diverse habitats and elevations, from high elevation grasslands to lowland rainExpand
Mitochondrial differentiation and biogeography of Hyla meridionalis (Anura: Hylidae): an unusual phylogeographical pattern
Aim To study the patterns of genetic variation and the historical events and processes that influenced the distribution and intraspecific diversity in Hyla meridionalis Boettger, 1874. Location HylaExpand
Phylogenetic relationships of discoglossid frogs (Amphibia:Anura:Discoglossidae) based on complete mitochondrial genomes and nuclear genes.
The complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial (mt) genome was determined for three species of discoglossid frogs (Amphibia:Anura:Discoglossidae), representing three of the four recognizedExpand
DISPERSAL OF VIVIPARITY ACROSS CONTACT ZONES IN IBERIAN POPULATIONS OF FIRE SALAMANDERS (SALAMANDRA) INFERRED FROM DISCORDANCE OF GENETIC AND MORPHOLOGICAL TRAITS
Abstract.— We used partial sequences of the cytochrome b mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) gene, obtained from 76 individuals representing 45 populations of Iberian Salamandra salamandra plus 15 sequences ofExpand
Phylogenetic relationships of Pelobatoidea re-examined using mtDNA.
Pelobatoidea is a clade of ancient anurans with obscure relationships to the remaining clades of frogs. We used partial sequences of two mitochondrial genes (cytochrome b and 16S RNA) from allExpand
Phylogenetic history underlies elevational biodiversity patterns in tropical salamanders
Elevational variation in species richness is ubiquitous and important for conservation, but remains poorly explained. Numerous studies have documented higher species richness at mid-elevations, butExpand
Morphological and allozyme studies of midwife toads (genus Alytes), including the description of two new taxa from Spain
Allozyme variation in 31 to 50 presumptive loci of 12 populations of European midwife toads of the genus Alytes show appreciable genetic divergences (DiNe from 0.29 to 0.72) among four groups. TheseExpand
