Updated distribution and biogeography of amphibians and reptiles of Europe
TLDR
This analysis serves as a preliminary step towards an interactive, dynamic and online distributed database system (NA2RE system) of the current spatial distribution of European amphibians and reptiles and highlights the need to add temporal and altitudinal data for all records to allow tracking potential species distribution changes.
The conservation status of the world's reptiles
Comparing Clines on Molecular and Phenotypic Traits in Hybrid Zones: A Window on Tension Zone Models
TLDR
High-resolution analysis of phenotypes distribution thus proved useful for detecting hybrid zone movement even without temporal data, and suggested that disruptive selection is acting across the hybrid zone, especially on the coloration of bare parts.
Unravelling biodiversity, evolution and threats to conservation in the Sahara‐Sahel
TLDR
Although there are still numerous knowledge gaps for the optimised conservation of biodiversity in the region, a set of research priorities is provided to identify the framework data needed to support regional conservation planning.
Predator-induced plasticity in early life history and morphology in two anuran amphibians
TLDR
The results highlight the diversity of induced responses to predators in anuran amphibians: predator presence affects the timing of hatching and morphology of young tadpoles, but these responses vary depending on the species and predator considered.
Genetic structure of avian populations — allozymes revisited
TLDR
The low levels of population subdivision measured with allozymes in birds seem to reflect historical and demographic processes and would not appear to result from any peculiarities of bird enzymatic loci.
Conquering the Sahara and Arabian deserts: systematics and biogeography of Stenodactylus geckos (Reptilia: Gekkonidae)
TLDR
The phylogenetic hypothesis for the genus Stenodactylus presented in this work permits the reconstruction of the biogeographical history of these common desert dwellers and confirms the importance of the opening of the Red Sea and the climatic oscillations of the Miocene as major factors in the diversification of the biota of North Africa and Arabia.
GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION AT NUCLEAR AND MITOCHONDRIAL LOCI AMONG LARGE WHITE‐HEADED GULLS: SEX‐BIASED INTERSPECIFIC GENE FLOW?
TLDR
The extensive similarity of their nuclear genome demonstrates that selection on a limited number of characters is an important factor in establishing and maintaining clear‐cut phenotypic differences between these species and suggests that the number of loci involved in this process is quite low.
