Molecular phylogeny of advanced snakes (Serpentes, Caenophidia) with an emphasis on South American Xenodontines: a revised classification and descriptions of new taxa
TLDR
A analise sugere algumas alteracoes de cunho taxonomico dentro dos xenodontineos, incluindo realocacoes genericas para Alsophis elegans, Liophis amarali e modificacoes substanciais em relacao a Xenodontini e a radiacao dos xenodermatideos das Antilhas. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the New World Dipsadidae (Serpentes: Colubroidea): a reappraisal
TLDR
In order to maintain monophyly, the genus Umbrivaga is synonymized with Erythrolamprus, and two new genera are erected to accommodate Phimophis iglesiasi and Clelia rustica, as well as their closely related species. Expand
Cryptic Species of a Cascade Frog from Southeast Asia: Taxonomic Revisions and Descriptions of Six New Species
TLDR
Six new cryptic species belonging to the Rana chloronota complex from Vietnam are described; each of the new species occurs in sympatry with at least one other member of the complex. Expand
Chicken domestication: an updated perspective based on mitochondrial genomes
TLDR
The assessment of chicken mtDNA data facilitated the understanding about the Austronesian settlement in the Pacific and revealed new complexities of history in chicken domestication because in the phylogeny lineages from the red junglefowl were mingled with those of the domestic chickens. Expand
Geological events play a larger role than Pleistocene climatic fluctuations in driving the genetic structure of Quasipaa boulengeri (Anura: Dicroglossidae)
TLDR
The complex orogenesis of south‐western China drove matrilineal divergence in Q. boulengeri into highly structured geographical units, and these matrilines subsequently persisted in situ with stable populations rather than undergoing expansions during glacial cycling. Expand
A fine line between sex and unisexuality: the phylogenetic constraints on parthenogenesis in lacertid lizards
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the causative agents of the formation of unisexual Darevskia are likely to be genes linked with the sex chromosomes within the parental sexual species. Expand
Whole-genome sequence of the Tibetan frog Nanorana parkeri and the comparative evolution of tetrapod genomes
TLDR
A de novo genome of the Tibetan frog, Nanorana parkeri, is provided and a series of comparisons with other vertebrates are conducted to offer an improved understanding of evolution of tetrapod genomes and also provides a genomic reference for other evolutionary studies. Expand
Evolutionary drivers of phylogeographical diversity in the highlands of Mexico: a case study of the Crotalus triseriatus species group of montane rattlesnakes
TLDR
The biogeographical history of the C. triseriatus group implies a dynamic history for the highlands of Mexico, and the high degree of genetic differentiation recovered suggests that the Mexican highlands may contain considerably more diversity than currently recognized. Expand
A mitogenomic perspective on the ancient, rapid radiation in the Galliformes with an emphasis on the Phasianidae
TLDR
Mitogenomic analyses recovered robust phylogenetic relationships and suggested that the Galliformes formed a model group for the study of morphological and behavioral evolution. Expand
Universal COI primers for DNA barcoding amphibians
TLDR
Two new pairs of primers are reported that in combination serve to universally amplify and sequence all three orders of Chinese amphibians as represented by 36 genera, suggesting that the new primer pairs will universally amplify COI for the vast majority species of amphibians. Expand
