Multilocus species tree analyses resolve the radiation of the widespread Bufo bufo species group (Anura, Bufonidae).
Spatiotemporal Diversification of the True Frogs (Genus Rana): A Historical Framework for a Widely Studied Group of Model Organisms.
A well-resolved, time-calibrated phylogeny from sequences of six nuclear and three mitochondrial loci sampled from most species of Rana is used to clarify the group's diversification and global biogeography, and suggests that previous classifications were misled by morphological homoplasy and plesiomorphic color patterns.
A novel multilocus phylogenetic estimation reveals unrecognized diversity in Asian horned toads, genus Megophrys sensu lato (Anura: Megophryidae).
Diversity of the snail‐eating snakes Pareas (Serpentes, Pareatidae) from Taiwan
Using mitochondrial sequence phylogeny, nuclear c‐mos haplotype network, as well as multivariate morphometrics, lines of evidence showed congruent results for the coexistence of three Pareas species in Taiwan, with prominent genetic and morphological differentiation and differing level of dentition asymmetry.
A new limestone-dwelling species of Micryletta (Amphibia: Anura: Microhylidae) from northern Vietnam
In the phylogenetic analyses, the new species is unambiguously positioned as a sister lineage to all remaining species of Micryletta and should be considered as Endangered (B1ab(iii), EN) following the IUCN’s Red List categories.
Large-scale phylogenetic analyses provide insights into unrecognized diversity and historical biogeography of Asian leaf-litter frogs, genus Leptolalax (Anura: Megophryidae).
MtDNA differentiation and taxonomy of Central Asian racerunners of Eremias multiocellata - E. przewalskii species complex (Squamata, Lacertidae)
An integrative analysis of the diversity of the E. multiocellata—E.
Review of the systematics, morphology and distribution of Asian Clawed Salamanders, genus Onychodactylus (Amphibia, Caudata: Hynobiidae), with the description of four new species
Four new species of Asian Clawed salamanders of the genus Onychodactylus are described, based on fresh material collected during fieldwork in Japan, Korea, the Russian Far East and northeastern China between 2003 and 2010, as well as older voucher specimens deposited in several museums.
A new species of Leptolalax (Anura: Megophryidae) from Son Tra Peninsula, central Vietnam.
The description of the tadpole constitutes the first description of larval morphology for a member of the L. appleybi species group, and an uncorrected sequence divergence of 7.4% for 16S rRNA separates the new species from its two closest relatives.
