The conservation status of the world's reptiles
The results provide the first analysis of the global conservation status and distribution patterns of reptiles and the threats affecting them, highlighting conservation priorities and knowledge gaps which need to be addressed urgently to ensure the continued survival of the world’s reptiles. Expand
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
Five new, microendemic Asian Leaf-litter Frogs (Leptolalax) from the southern Annamite mountains, Vietnam.
The Leptolalax applebyi group of Asian leaf-litter frogs currently comprises four species of particularly small-bodied (<40 mm SVL) species distributed in the Central Highlands of Vietnam and northeastern Cambodia and formally delineate and describe five of these lineages as distinct species.

Trade in live reptiles, its impact on wild populations, and the role of the European market
Of the 10,272 currently recognized reptile species, the trade of fewer than 8% are regulated by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and theExpand
A new species of Gracixalus (Amphibia: Anura: Rhacophoridae) from northern Vietnam
A new species of small tree frog from northern Vietnam is described based on morphological differences and molecular divergence and the molecular data showed that the new species is nested in the same group with Gracixalus jinxiuensis sensu lato. Expand
A new species of karst dwelling Cyrtodactylus (Squamata: Gekkonidae) from northwestern Laos
A new species of karst dwelling Cyrtodactylus (Squamata: Gekkonidae) from northwestern Laos is described. Expand
Large-scale phylogenetic analyses provide insights into unrecognized diversity and historical biogeography of Asian leaf-litter frogs, genus Leptolalax (Anura: Megophryidae).
The results reveal that both vicariance and dispersal are responsible for current distribution patterns in the Leptolalax genus, and the genus appears to have originated in Sundaland and then colonized mainland Asia. Expand
New country records of reptiles from Laos
Abstract Four species of reptiles, of which one is represented by one of its subspecies, are recorded for the first time from Laos: Cyrtodactylus phongnhakebangensis, Lycodon futsingensis, andExpand
Phylogenetic surveys on the newt genus Tylototriton sensu lato (Salamandridae, Caudata) reveal cryptic diversity and novel diversification promoted by historical climatic shifts
Investigation of the diversification patterns of the newt genus Tylototriton sensu lato found that the genus held a higher diversification rate in the late Miocene-to-Pliocene era than that in the Pleistocene, and the reinforcement of East Asian monsoons associated with the stepwise uplifts of the Tibetan Plateau promoted the radiation of the genus in southeastern Asia.

Review of the genus Dopasia Gray, 1853 (Squamata: Anguidae) in the Indochina subregion
The validity of Dopasia ludovici is confirmed, previously a synonym of D. harti, based on overlooked external morphological differences in the Indochina subregion. Expand
