Ecological Niche Modelling and nDNA Sequencing Support a New, Morphologically Cryptic Beetle Species Unveiled by DNA Barcoding
Background DNA sequencing techniques used to estimate biodiversity, such as DNA barcoding, may reveal cryptic species. However, disagreements between barcoding and morphological data have already ledExpand

Reliable DNA Barcoding Performance Proved for Species and Island Populations of Comoran Squamate Reptiles
In the past decade, DNA barcoding became increasingly common as a method for species identification in biodiversity inventories and related studies. However, mainly due to technical obstacles,Expand

Molecular phylogeny of the squeak beetles, a family with disjunct Palearctic-Australian range.
Many higher groups of plants and animals show distributional patterns which have been shown or have at some point in time been suggested to be correlated with plate tectonics and the ancientExpand

DNA barcoding of crickets, katydids and grasshoppers (Orthoptera) from Central Europe with focus on Austria, Germany and Switzerland
We present a DNA barcoding study on the insect order Orthoptera that was generated in collaboration between four barcoding projects in three countries, viz. Barcoding Fauna Bavarica (Germany), GermanExpand

Composition of twenty Green Frog populations ( Pelophylax ) across Bavaria , Germany
Two species of green frogs exist in the state of Bavaria (Germany), the Marsh Frog (Pelophylax ridibundus) and the Pool Frog (Pelophylax lessonae). The Edible Frog (Pelophylax esculentus) is aExpand

Integrative evidence confirms new endemic island frogs and transmarine dispersal of amphibians between Madagascar and Mayotte (Comoros archipelago)
Previous genetic studies of frogs from Mayotte Island (a French Overseas Department in the Comoros Archipelago) in the Western Indian Ocean have provided evidence for oceanic dispersal in amphibians,Expand

New insights into the systematics and molecular phylogeny of the Malagasy snake genus Liopholidophis suggest at least one rapid reversal of extreme sexual dimorphism in tail length
The pseudoxyrhophiine snake genus Liopholidophis Mocquard, 1904 (family Lamprophiidae) is endemic to Madagascar and according to its present definition comprises six medium-sized, terrestrial andExpand
