Systematic relationships of Oriental tiny frogs of the family Microhylidae (Amphibia, Anura) as revealed by mtDNA genealogy.
The genealogical relationships and assessed systematic relationships among 45 out of 89 named species and four unnamed taxa from 11 of 14 genera of the Oriental microhylids were estimated using maximum parsimony, maximum likelihood, and Bayesian inference methods. Expand
Stone‐tool usage by Thai long‐tailed macaques (Macaca fascicularis)
The discovery of stone‐tool usage by Thai long‐tailed macaques provides a new point of reference for discussions regarding the evolution of tool usage and the material culture of primates. Expand
The new family Diapheridae, a new species of Diaphera Albers from Thailand, and the position of the Diapheridae within a molecular phylogeny of the Streptaxoidea (Pulmonata: Stylommatophora)
The molecular phylogenetic analysis placed the two genera with high-spired shells, Sinoennea and Diaphera, in an isolated position as a sister group to the Streptaxoidea, providing support to the proposed recognition of a new family, the Diaperidae. Expand
Phylogenetic and taxonomic relationships of the Polypedates leucomystax complex (Amphibia)
The phylogenetic and taxonomic relationships of the Polypedates leucomystax complex (Amphibia) are described and described as follows:. Expand
Evolution of whole-body enantiomorphy in the tree snail genus Amphidromus
This study implicates the need for explicit approaches to disclosure of a maintenance mechanism and conservation of the genus Amphidromus, and indicates that whole‐body enantiomorphy is maintained within populations opposing the rule of directional asymmetry in animals. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships, taxonomy, character evolution and biogeography of the lacertid lizards of the genus Takydromus (Reptilia: Squamata): a molecular perspective
Interrelationships indicate invalidity of PlatyplacopusBoulenger 1917, which was recently resurrected as a subgenus of Takydromus on the basis of the morphological analysis; homoplasy in states of some morphological characters, such as green dorsal coloration; and involvement of the genus in a series of vicariances in both the continental and insular parts of eastern Eurasia.

Taxonomic review of the tree snail amphidromus albers, 1850 (Pulmonata: Camaenidae) in Thailand and adjacent areas : Subgenus Amphidromus
Extensive series of Amphidromus Albers, 1850 were collected from low-altitude areas (30-500 m above sea level) in Thailand, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia between 1993 and 2004. Data onExpand
Annotated checklist of the terrestrial molluscs from Laos (Mollusca, Gastropoda)
This is the first comprehensive annotated checklist with an up-to-date systematic framework of the land snail fauna in Laos based on both field investigations and literature surveys and may inspire malacologists to carry on systematic research in this region. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of the operculate land snail genus Cyclophorus Montfort, 1810 in Thailand.
This work reconstructed the molecular phylogeny of 87 Cyclophorus specimens, representing 29 nominal species (of which one was represented by four subspecies), plus three related out-group species, and confirmed the species level classification of at least three nominate species. Expand
