Amphibian fungal panzootic causes catastrophic and ongoing loss of biodiversity
The demise of amphibians? Rapid spread of disease is a hazard in our interconnected world. The chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis was identified in amphibian populations about 20 years agoExpand

ARTICLE Phylogeography of Ptychadena mascareniensis suggests transoceanic dispersal in a widespread African- Malagasy frog lineage
Aim The Mascarene ridged frog, Ptychadena mascareniensis, is the only African amphibian species thought to occur on Madagascar and on the Seychelles and also Mascarene islands. We explored itsExpand

The importance of environmental heterogeneity for species diversity and assemblage structure in Bornean stream frogs.
1. Several hypotheses have been proposed to explain the structure of multi-species assemblages. Among these, abiotic environmental factors and biotic processes are often favoured. Several recentExpand

Effects of forest fragmentation and habitat degradation on West African leaf-litter frogs.
Habitat degradation alters the dynamics and composition of anuran assemblages in tropical forests. The effects of forest fragmentation on the composition of anuran assemblages are so far poorlyExpand

Evaluating mechanisms of diversification in a Guineo‐Congolian tropical forest frog using demographic model selection
The accumulation of biodiversity in tropical forests can occur through multiple allopatric and parapatric models of diversification, including forest refugia, riverine barriers and ecologicalExpand

A hybrid phylogenetic-phylogenomic approach for species tree estimation in African Agama lizards with applications to biogeography, character evolution, and diversification.
Africa is renowned for its biodiversity and endemicity, yet little is known about the factors shaping them across the continent. African Agama lizards (45 species) have a pan-continentalExpand

Oviposition site selection in a complex and variable environment: the role of habitat quality and conspecific cues
In many organisms reproductive success is strongly dependent on several breeding site characteristics, which often vary in space and time. Although we have a good understanding of how ovipositingExpand
