Systematics of the Palaearctic and Oriental lizard tribe Lacertini (Squamata: Lacertidae: Lacertinae), with descriptions of eight new genera
Both mtDNA and morphology indicate that Lacerta and Timon are sister taxa, and DNA suggests further possible relationships among genera, as European Lacertidae show a pattern of repeated spread, often accompanied by restriction of previous groups.
Systematics, biogeography, and evolution of Hemidactylus geckos (Reptilia: Gekkonidae) elucidated using mitochondrial DNA sequences.

Partial DNA sequences derived from the mitochondrial cytochrome b and 12S rRNA genes are used to trace migration and speciation in Tarentola geckos, a primarily North African clade which has invaded many of the warmer islands in the North Atlantic Ocean.
First molecular evidence for the existence of a Tardigrada + Arthropoda clade.
The results obtained represent the first molecular evidence for a Tardigrada + Arthropoda clade and indicate the need to review those obtained solely on morphological characters.
Radiation, multiple dispersal and parallelism in the skinks, Chalcides and Sphenops (Squamata: Scincidae), with comments on Scincus and Scincopus and the age of the Sahara Desert.
DNA phylogeny of Lacerta (Iberolacerta) and other lacertine lizards (Reptilia: Lacertidae): Did competition cause long‐term mountain restriction?
Mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences corroborate the monophyly of the Lacerta group and show it is not closely related to any of the other Rock lizards with which it was formerly placed in Archaeolacerta, an assemblage for which there is no evidence of clade status.
Are the Platyhelminthes a monophyletic primitive group? An assessment using 18S rDNA sequences.
It is suggested that parasitic platyhelminthes appeared early in the evolution of the group and form a sister group to a still-unresolved clade made by Nemertodermatida, Lecithoepitheliata, Prolecithophora, Proseriata and Rhabdocoela, and that Seriata is paraphyletic.
Phylogeography of the lacertid lizard, Psammodromus algirus, in Iberia and across the Strait of Gibraltar
Aim To determine genetic substructuring within the lacertid lizard Psammodromus algirus. To compare levels of variation across a geological barrier, the Strait of Gibraltar, and to compare this…
Relationships and evolution of the North African geckos, Geckonia and Tarentola (Reptilia: Gekkonidae), based on mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences.
Phylogeny, biogeography, and evolution of two Mediterranean snakes, Malpolon monspessulanus and Hemorrhois hippocrepis (Squamata, Colubridae), using mtDNA sequences.
