Phylogenetic hypotheses for the turtle family Geoemydidae.
The turtle family Geoemydidae represents the largest, most diverse, and most poorly understood family of turtles. Little is known about this group, including intrafamilial systematics. The onlyExpand
A molecular phylogeny of tortoises (Testudines: Testudinidae) based on mitochondrial and nuclear genes.
Although tortoises of the family Testudinidae represent a familiar and widely distributed group of turtles, their phylogenetic relationships have remained contentious. In this study, we included 32Expand
Multiple data sets, high homoplasy, and the phylogeny of softshell turtles (Testudines: Trionychidae).
We present a phylogenetic hypothesis and novel, rank-free classification for all extant species of softshell turtles (Testudines:Trionychidae). Our data set included DNA sequence data from twoExpand
A phylogeny for side-necked turtles (Chelonia: Pleurodira) based on mitochondrial and nuclear gene sequence variation
Aspects of the phylogeny of pleurodiran turtles are contentious, particularly within the Chelidae. Morphological analyses group the long-necked Australasian Chelodina and the long-necked SouthExpand
A taxonomic reevaluation of Phrynops (Testudines: Chelidae) with the description of two new genera and a new species of Batrachemys.
Relationships among turtle species loosely categorized within the South American genus Phrynops are explored. Three once recognized genera (Batrachemys, Mesoclemmys and Phrynops) that were demoted toExpand
On the paraphyly of the genus Kachuga (Testudines: Geoemydidae).
a Department of Herpetology, Division of Vertebrate Zoology, and Center for Biodiversity and Conservation, American Museum of Natural History, Central Park West at 79th Street, New York, NY 10024,Expand
Contemporary genetic structure of an endemic freshwater turtle reflects Miocene orogenesis of New Guinea
The island of New Guinea lies in one of the most tectonically active regions in the world and has long provided outstanding opportunity for studies of biogeography. Several chelid turtles, of clearExpand
Electrophoretic delineation of species boundaries within the genus Chelodina (Testudines: Chelidae) of Australia, New Guinea and Indonesia
A total of 281 specimens of long-necked chelid turtles (Chelodina) were obtained from drainages of Australia, Papua New Guinea and the island of Roti in Indonesia. Ten diagnosable taxa wereExpand
A NEW BOX TURTLE OF THE GENUS CUORA (TESTUDINES: EMYDIDAE) WITH TAXONOMIC NOTES AND A KEY TO THE SPECIES
A new species of Asian box turtle, Cuora pallidicephala (Emydidae: Bataguridae), is described from north central Yunnan Province, China. Comparisons are made with other members of the genus CuoraExpand
Phylogenetic relationships of chelid turtles (Pleurodira: Chelidae) based on mitochondrial 12S rRNA gene sequence variation.
Conflicting phylogenies have been proposed for the Chelidae (Testudines: Pleurodira), a family of side-necked turtles found only in Australasia and South America. Sequence data from the mitochondrialExpand
