Abstract Using mtDNA sequence data and a phylogenetic approach, we examined the divergence and evolutionary history of the Toad-Headed Lizards of the Phrynocephalus versicolor species complex, which are currently assigned to three species, P. versicolor, Phrynocephalus frontalis, and Phrynocephalus przewalskii. Both parsimony and likelihood-based analyses resulted in three clades, which do not conform to the current species designation. The three species did not form mutually exclusive… Expand
Partitioned Bayesian analyses, dispersal-vicariance analysis, and the biogeography of Chinese toad-headed lizards (Agamidae: Phrynocephalus): a re-evaluation.
TLDR
This phylogenetic framework inferred the genus' historical biogeography by using weighted ancestral-area analysis and dispersal-vicariance analysis in combination with a Bayesian relaxed molecular-clock approach and paleogeographical data, and partitioned Bayesian analyses support the monophyly of Phrynocephalus and its sister-group relationship with Laudakia.

Comparison of phylogeographic structure and population history of two Phrynocephalus species in the Tarim Basin and adjacent areas.
TLDR
An aridification of the Tarim Basin and adjacent areas since middle Pleistocene has produced significant genetic structuring of the local fauna and interaction between vicariance, dispersal and habitat fragmentation produced the current distribution and genetic diversity of Phrynocephalus axillaris and forsythii. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of the gray-toad agama, Phrynocephalus scutellatus (Olivier, 1807), species complex from Iran.
TLDR
The sequences data strongly support a basal separation of the populations of southeastern-south--central Iran from those occurring in the North, and the divergence between the northern and southern clades cannot be explained by the present data. Expand
Species history and divergence times of viviparous and oviparous Chinese toad-headed sand lizards (Phrynocephalus) on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau.

TLDR
More robust estimates of divergence times and relationships within this important group are established and improved insights into the origins of Phrynocephalus diversity across the QTP are provided. Expand
Cenozoic aridization in Central Eurasia shaped diversification of toad-headed agamas (Phrynocephalus; Agamidae, Reptilia)
We hypothesize the phylogenetic relationships of the agamid genus Phrynocephalus to assess how past environmental changes shaped the evolutionary and biogeographic history of these lizards andExpand
Historical vicariance and male‐mediated gene flow in the toad‐headed lizards Phrynocephalus przewalskii
TLDR
A historical vicariant event followed by male‐mediated gene flow appears to be the best explanation for the data and polygyny mating system and female philopatry may partially contribute to the reduced movement of females. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of Phrynocephalus helioscopus (Reptilia, Squamata, Agamidae)
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of P. helioscopus may help to clarify the phylogenetic relationships related to Phrynocephalus oviparity, and was similar to what observed in most vertebrates. Expand
Phylogeography of a widespread terrestrial vertebrate in a barely-studied Palearctic region: green toads (Bufo viridis subgroup) indicate glacial refugia in Eastern Central Asia
TLDR
A detailed history of how a widespread terrestrial vertebrate responded to geological change and Quaternary glacial events in Eastern Central Asia is provided and may have significance for future phylogeographic research in this understudied region. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of the color changeable toad-headed agama, Phrynocephalus versicolor (Reptilia, Squamata, Agamidae)
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of color changeable toad-headed agama, Phrynocephalus versicolor, was determined using polymerase chain reaction (PCR), long-and-accurate PCR and directly sequencing by primer walking to provide fundamental data for resolving phylogenetic relationship problems related to Agaimidae and genus Phry nocephalus.

Impacts of late Quaternary environmental change on the long-tailed ground squirrel (Urocitellus undulatus) in Mongolia
TLDR
The most extensive molecular analysis to date of the long-tailed ground squirrel in Mongolia is conducted, illuminates possible historical mechanisms responsible for U. undulatus genetic structure and contributes to a framework for ongoing exploration of mammalian response to past and present climate change in central Asia.

Evaluating trans-tethys migration: an example using acrodont lizard phylogenetics.
TLDR
Three historical events may be responsible for the sharp faunal barrier between Southeast Asia and Australia-New Guinea, known as Wallace's line: primary vicariance caused by plate separations, secondary contact of Southeast Asian plates with Eurasia, leading to dispersal from Eurasia into Southeast Asia, and introduction of different biotic elements to Asia by way of separate Gondwanan plates.

Delimiting species using DNA and morphological variation and discordant species limits in spiny lizards (Sceloporus).
TLDR
This paper compares species limits inferred from three approaches for species delimitation, using morphological and mtDNA data for the Yarrow's spiny lizard (Sceloporus jarrovii), a traditionally polytypic species from the southwestern United States and Mexico, and finds the greatest support for the five species that are delimited based on mt DNA data.

A cladistic measure of gene flow inferred from the phylogenies of alleles.
TLDR
A method for estimating the average level of gene flow among populations is introduced, which provides an estimate of Nm that is as nearly as accurate as estimates obtained using FST and other statistics when Nm is moderate. Expand

PHYLOGEOGRAPHIC BREAKS WITHOUT GEOGRAPHIC BARRIERS TO GENE FLOW
  • D. Irwin

  • 2002
TLDR
It is shown that deep phylogeographic breaks can form within a continuously distributed species even when there are no barriers to gene flow, which might provide an explanation as to why some species, such as the greenish warblers, have phyloGeographic breaks in mitochondrial or chloroplast DNA that do not coincide with sudden changes in other traits.

TLDR
The recently‐developed statistical method known as the “bootstrap” can be used to place confidence intervals on phylogenies and shows significant evidence for a group if it is defined by three or more characters. Expand

Sequence and organization of the human mitochondrial genome
TLDR
The complete sequence of the 16,569-base pair human mitochondrial genome is presented and shows extreme economy in that the genes have none or only a few noncoding bases between them, and in many cases the termination codons are not coded in the DNA but are created post-transcriptionally by polyadenylation of the mRNAs.
