Gene and species trees of a Neotropical group of treefrogs: genetic diversification in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest and the origin of a polyploid species.
The Neotropical Phyllomedusa burmeisteri treefrog group includes four diploid (P. bahiana, P. burmeisteri, P. distincta and P. iheringii) and one tetraploid (P. tetraploidea) forms. Here we useExpand

New primers for the amplification and sequencing of nuclear loci in a taxonomically wide set of reptiles and amphibians
We report new primers for the amplification and sequencing of 11 nuclear markers in squamate reptiles and anuran amphibians (five in squamates, six in anurans). Ten out of the 11 loci are intronsExpand

Cryptic Genetic Diversity Is Paramount in Small-Bodied Amphibians of the Genus Euparkerella (Anura: Craugastoridae) Endemic to the Brazilian Atlantic Forest
Morphological similarity associated to restricted distributions and low dispersal abilities make the direct developing “Terrarana” frogs of the genus Euparkerella a good model for examiningExpand

Ancient divergence and recent population expansion in a leaf frog endemic to the southern Brazilian Atlantic forest
The evolutionary history of Neotropical organisms has been often interpreted through broad-scale generalizations. The most accepted model of diversification for the Brazilian Atlantic forest (BAF)Expand

Species limits, phylogeographic and hybridization patterns in Neotropical leaf frogs (Phyllomedusinae)
The taxonomy of many species is still based solely on phenotypic traits, which is often a pitfall for the understanding of evolutionary processes and historical biogeographic patterns, especiallyExpand

Genetic variability of Brazilian rice landraces determined by SSR markers
The objective of this study was to evaluate the genetic variability of rice (Oryza sativa) landraces collected in Brazilian small farms. Twelve simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers characterized 417Expand

Not always young: The first vertebrate ancient origin of true parthenogenesis found in an Amazon leaf litter lizard with evidence of mitochondrial haplotypes surfing on the wave of a range expansion.
In vertebrates, true parthenogenesis is found only in squamate reptiles and (mostly) originates via interspecific hybridization after secondary contact. In many cases, parthenogenesis is followed byExpand

On the distinctiveness of Amapasaurus, its relationship with Loxopholis Cope 1869, and description of a new genus for L. guianensis and L. hoogmoedi (Gymnophthalmoidea/Ecpleopodini: Squamata).
Amapasaurus is a monotypic genus of forest lizards never accessed molecularly and, based on morphological similarities, suggested to be closely related to species of the former Leposoma parietaleExpand

Evolutionary Dynamics and Consequences of Parthenogenesis in Vertebrates
Parthenogenesis is asexual reproduction without any required participation from males and, as such, is a null model for sexual reproduction. In a comparative context, we can expand our understandin...

FLUXO GÊNICO ENTRE ARROZ VERMELHO E ARROZ CULTIVADO ESTIMADO POR MEIO DE MARCADORES MICROSSATÉLITES
The study aimed to evaluate the capacity of SSR markers to detect the gene flow between the red rice (RR) and the cultivated rice (CR). SSR is currently used in plant genomic analysis due to the highExpand
