Phylogeography of Jackson's Forest Lizard Adolfus jacksoni (Sauria: Lacertidae) Reveals Cryptic Diversity in the Highlands of East Africa
Results from phylogenetic analyses and additional morphological data indicated that Adolfus jacksoni occurs throughout the Albertine Rift, likely from the Kabobo Plateau to the Lendu Plateau of Democratic Republic of the Congo, as well as southern Uganda, Mt. Elgon, and the highlands of western Kenya on the western side of the Kenyan Rift.
Butterflies (Lepidoptera: Papilionoidea) of Mount Kilimanjaro: Nymphalidae subfamilies Libytheinae, Danainae, Satyrinae and Charaxinae
An identification key to the subfamilies of Nymphalidae, and the 19 genera of Libytheinae, Danainae, Satyrinee, Charaxinae that occur in Tanzania, together with aKey to the adults of all the species of these four subfam families considered to occur or have occurred on Kilimanjaro are presented.
Phylogeography of Sesamia cretica Lederer (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
Analysis of molecular variance (AMOVA) indicated significant genetic differentiation among the clades of the greater sugarcane borer, and the results of mismatch distribution analyses were consistent with the demographic expansion of theClades.
Diversity and Host Range of Lepidopteran Stemborer Species in Cameroon
Results of the survey undertaken to establish stemborer species diversity and geographical distribution in Cameroon are provided and a total of 32 stemborers species were identified from the 22 plant species found infested.
Butterflies (Lepidoptera: Papilionoidea) of Mount Kilimanjaro: family Pieridae, subfamily Coliadinae
Three genera (Catopsilia, Colias and Eurema) with eight species of Coliadinae are believed to occur within the main forest zone, but one or two may prove to be no more than variants of a third species, EUREma desjardinsii.
Butterflies (Lepidoptera: Papilionoidea) of Mount Kilimanjaro: family Pieridae, subfamily Pierinae
This paper, which presents an annotated checklist of the whites (Pieridae: Pierinae), is the third in a series on the butterfly fauna of Mount Kilimanjaro, with a total of 11 genera and 40 species listed.
A phylogeny for the pomatiopsidae (Gastropoda: Rissooidea): a resource for taxonomic, parasitological and biodiversity studies
The molecular dates and phylogenetic estimates in this study are consistent with an Australasian origin for the Pomatiopsidae and an East to West radiation via Oligocene Borneo-Philippines island hopping to Japan and then China (Triculinae arising mid-Miocene in Southeast China), and less so with a triculine origin in Tibet.
Genetic structure and origin of Busseola fusca populations in Cameroon
The study suggests that the Cameroonian population of B. fusca is relatively recent and originates from the recent geographical expansion of clade KII, which is thought to be the likely starting point for the colonization of other zones in Cameroon.
Species limits within the Praomys delectorum group (Rodentia: Muridae: Murinae) of East Africa: a morphometric reassessment and biogeographical implications
We examined approximately 600 specimens that represent the Praomys delectorum species group (Muridae: Murinae: Praomyini), a rodent complex restricted to Afromontane landscapes in East Africa and
New and revised descriptions of the immature stages of some butterflies in Sri Lanka and their larval food plants (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae). Part 1: Sub-family Danainae
This study provides the basic information for further studies on the biology of these species and provides information for conservation management programs for butterflies in Sri Lanka.
