Phylogeny, taxonomy, and zoogeography of the genus Gekko Laurenti, 1768 with the revalidation of G . reevesii Gray, 1831 (Sauria: Gekkonidae)
A review of the taxonomy, phylogeny, and zoogeography of all currently recognized Gekko species is provided based on morphology (including size, scalation, color, and pattern) and mitochondrial andExpand
Revision of the giant geckos of New Caledonia (Reptilia: Diplodactylidae: Rhacodactylus )
A molecular phylogenetic approach using the mitochondrial ND2 gene and five associated tRNAs and the nuclear RAG1 gene to investigate relationships within the giant geckos of New Caledonia and support the recognition of a R. chahoua + Eurydactylodes clade separate from Rhacodactylus sensu stricto. Expand
A Revision of the Bavayia validiclavis group (Squamata: Gekkota: Diplodactylidae), a Clade of New Caledonian Geckos Exhibiting Microendemism
The genus Bavayiaas currently construed is paraphyletic relative to other New Caledonian diplodactylid geckos and is here recognized as the type species of a new genus characterized by small size and a unique combination of digital and coloration features. Expand
A New Genus and Species of Diplodactylid Gecko (Reptilia: Squamata: Diplodactylidae) from Northwestern New Caledonia1
ABSTRACT A new genus and species of diplodactylid gecko, Oedodera marmorata Bauer, Jackman, Sadlier & Whitaker, is described from low-elevation maquis habitat near Paagoumène in the northwest of theExpand
Uncovering karst endemism within Borneo: two new Cyrtodactylus species from Sarawak, Malaysia.
The island of Borneo lies within one of the most biodiverse regions in the world. Despite this, its documented gekkonid diversity is not commensurate with other areas of Southeast Asia. TheExpand
Localized endemism in the southern ultramafic bio-region of New Caledonia as evidenced by the lizards in the genus Sigaloseps (Reptilia: Scincidae), with descriptions of four new species.
In the genetic analysis three taxa restricted to high-elevation habitats in the southern ranges constitute a well supported group and most likely reflects contraction of forest to mountain top refugia resulting from changes in climate during the deep and recent history of the scincid genus Sigaloseps.

Review and phylogeny of the New Caledonian diplodactylid gekkotan genus Eurydactylodes Wermuth, 1965, with the description of a new species
Le genre de gecko diplodactylide Eurydactylodes est endemique de la Nouvelle-Caledonie and il est caracterise par bon nombre de traits morphologiques tres originaux, ainsi qu'avec les anoles arboricoles. Expand
A New Member of the Bavayia cyclura Species Group (Reptilia: Squamata: Diplodactylidae) from the Southern Ranges of New Caledonia1
The area from which the species is recorded so far is the focus of extensive nickel mining operations, and because of its restricted distribution and the potential threats posed by mining in the region, it is here regarded as endangered under IUCN red list criteria. Expand
Cryptic speciation in the New Caledonian lizard genus Nannoscincus (Reptilia: Scincidae) including the description of a new species and recognition of Nannoscincus fuscus Günther.
Cryptic speciation in the New Caledonian lizard genus Nannoscincus (Reptilia: Scincidae) including the description of a new species and recognition of Nannoscope fuscus Günther is described. Expand
