Mitochondrial genetic diversity and divergence dating of Angolan colobus monkeys (Colobus angolensis) in the eastern forests of Kenya and Tanzania: Implications for subspeciation and reconstructing historical biogeography.
A novel, more direct migration route from Central Africa to their current range navigating Lake Tanganyika, the central Tanzanian corridor, and the Rufiji River is proposed and evaluated about the founding and differentiation of these subspecies during Pleistocene climatic fluctuations.
Gene Flow Increases Phylogenetic Structure and Inflates Cryptic Species Estimations: A Case Study on Widespread Philippine Puddle Frogs (Occidozyga laevis).
The findings suggest that speciation may not be the major process underlying the high levels of hidden diversity observed in many taxonomic groups and that widely-adopted tree- and distance-based methods overestimate species diversity in the presence of gene flow.
Redescription of Emplectonema viride – a ubiquitous intertidal hoplonemertean found along the West Coast of North America
It is presented morphological and molecular evidence that E. viride is distinct from E. gracile and following Corrêa’s designation, this should be the type species of the genus Emplectonema.


Species Boundaries within Morphologically Cryptic Galagos: Evidence from Acoustic and Genetic Data
Investigating species boundaries between two putative highly cryptic species of Eastern dwarf galagos concludes that P. cocos and P. zanzibaricus represent two valid cryptic species that probably underwent speciation in the Late Pliocene while fragmented in isolated populations in the eastern forests.
An integrative approach to delimiting species in a rare but widespread mycoheterotrophic orchid
This study represents perhaps the most geographically comprehensive example of integrative species delimitation for any orchid and any mycoheterotroph.
On species delimitation: Yet another lemur species or just genetic variation?
It is shown that genetic distance estimates and Population Aggregation Analysis (PAA) are inappropriate for species delimitation in lemurs and several of the recently described lemur species should be reevaluated with additional data.
Cryptic species as a window on diversity and conservation.
Remarkable ancient divergences amongst neglected lorisiform primates
The results obtained in this study suggest that lorisiform diversity remains substantially underestimated and that previously unnoticed cryptic diversity might be present within many lineages, thus urgently requiring a comprehensive taxonomic revision of this primate group.
Delimiting Species without Nuclear Monophyly in Madagascar's Mouse Lemurs
This study uses a multi-faceted approach that applies phylogenetic, population genetic, and genealogical analysis for recognizing lineage diversity and presents the most thoroughly sampled species delimitation of mouse lemur ever performed.
Species-Level Diversity Among Malagasy Lemurs
It is argued that “silver-bullet” approaches to species recognition ignore real biological complexity, and that species are best recognized through weighing all available evidence including that furnished by morphology, molecules, behavior, communication, demography, and distributions.
A multilocus phylogeny reveals deep lineages within African galagids (Primates: Galagidae)
Using a multilocus approach, the results suggest an early origin for the crown Galagidae, soon after the Eocene-Oligocene boundary, making Euoticus one of the oldest lineages within extant Primates.
Factors affecting species delimitations with the GMYC model: insights from a butterfly survey
The results demonstrate that this method is remarkably stable under a wide array of circumstances, including most phylogenetic reconstruction methods, high singleton presence (up to 95%), taxon richness (above five species) and the presence of gaps in intraspecific sampling coverage (removal of intermediate haplotypes).
Sequence-based species delimitation for the DNA taxonomy of undescribed insects.
Cataloging the very large number of undescribed species of insects could be greatly accelerated by automated DNA based approaches, but procedures for large-scale species discovery from sequence data
