Systematics and natural history of Southeast Asian Rock Geckos (genus Cnemaspis Strauch, 1887) with descriptions of eight new species from Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia.
A well-supported and well-resolved phylogeny based on a concatenated data set from one mitochondrial and two nuclear genes, six morphological characters, and nine color pattern characters for 44 ofExpand
Integrative taxonomy uncovers high levels of cryptic species diversity in Hemiphyllodactylus Bleeker, 1860 (Squamata: Gekkonidae) and the description of a new species from Peninsular Malaysia
TLDR
Using an integrative taxonomic approach imbues the revised classification of Hemiphyllodactylus with more objectivity, stability, and phylogenetic history, while identifying undescribed species-level lineages in potential need of conservation. Expand
First Record of Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis Infecting Four Frog Families from Peninsular Malaysia
TLDR
The presence of Bd infections in native species without clinical signs of disease suggests that Bd may be endemic to the region, and management efforts should be implemented to limit the spread of non-native Bd and protect the tremendous amphibian diversity in Peninsular Malaysia. Expand
Diversity and temporal distribution of birds in rice-growing landscape,Northern Peninsular Malaysia
Rice fields are traditional landscape in Malaysia that sustains various species of birds. Waterbirds, raptors, Passeriformes and Columbiformes were observed and counted using point count method atExpand
Cyrts in the city: a new Bent-toed Gecko (Genus Cyrtodactylus) is the only endemic species of vertebrate from Batu Caves, Selangor, Peninsular Malaysia.
Cyrtodactylus metropolis sp. nov. from Batu Caves massif, Selangor, Peninsular Malaysia is differentiated from all congeners by having a unique suite of morphological and color patternExpand
A phylogeny and taxonomy of the Thai-Malay Peninsula Bent-toed Geckos of the Cyrtodactylus pulchellus complex (Squamata: Gekkonidae): combined morphological and molecular analyses with descriptions
An integrative taxonomic analysis using color pattern, morphology and 1497 base pairs of the ND2 mitochondrial geneand its five flanking tRNAs demonstrated that nine monophyletic species-levelExpand
A new species of upland Stream Toad of the genus Ansonia Stoliczka, 1870 (Anura: Bufonidae) from northeastern Peninsular Malaysia.
TLDR
A new species of Ansonia is described based on genetic and morphological differentiation and differs from these and other congeners by at least 6.9% sequence divergence at the 12S, 16S rRNA and t-RNA-val genes. Expand

Nest site selection and digging attempts of green turtles (Chelonia mydas, family Cheloniidae) at Pantai Kerachut and Telok Kampi, Penang Island, Peninsular Malaysia
The Pantai Kerachut Turtle Conservation Centre represents the centre of research study of sea turtles in Penang Island. For the study of nest site selection, 37 nests were located between 10-40mExpand
Phylogeography, geographic variation, and taxonomy of the Bent-toed Gecko Cyrtodactylus quadrivirgatus Taylor, 1962 from Peninsular Malaysia with the description of a new swamp dwelling species
TLDR
The molecular phylogeny and morphological analysis strongly indicate lineage independence between a subset of individuals from the Bukit Panchor, Penang population and their closest relative C. pantiensis from southern Peninsular Malaysia, and these individuals are conspecific and not part of C. quadrivirgatus as previously suggested.
