The Oriental garden lizard (Calotes versicolor) is one of the few non-gekkonid lizards that are geographically widespread in the tropics. We investigated its population dynamics on Hainan Island and the adjacent mainland of China and Vietnam, focusing on the impact of cyclic upheaval and submergence of land bridges during the Pleistocene. Our Bayesian phylogenetic analysis reveals two mitochondrial lineages, A and B, which are estimated to have coalesced about 0.26 million years ago (95… Expand
Genetic diversity and population structure of blue-crested lizard, Calotes mystaceus Duméril & Bibron, 1837 (Squamata: Agamidae) in Thailand
TLDR
The mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (CO1) sequence variation of 238 individual C. mystaceus from 42 different geographical localities of the north, west, central, east and northeast regions of Thailand revealed high genetic diversity and genetic differentiation at the intrapopulation and interpopulation levels.

From mainland to islands: colonization history in the tree frog Kurixalus (Anura: Rhacophoridae)
TLDR
The results indicate that the genus Kurixalus originated in the Asian mainland and subsequently arrived at its current distribution in Borneo, Taiwan, Ryukyu, and Hainan islands by a series of dispersal events. Expand
Population structure of Aphyocypris normalis: phylogeography and systematics
TLDR
The study found that the Wuzhishan and Yinggeling Mountain Range was an important barrier limiting gene exchange between populations on both sides and cyclic climate changes may have shaped migrations and population differentiations. Expand
Complex longitudinal diversification across South China and Vietnam in Stejneger's pit viper, Viridovipera stejnegeri (Schmidt, 1925) (Reptilia: Serpentes: Viperidae)
TLDR
Estimation of divergence time and ancestral area suggests that V. stejnegeri originated at ~6.0 Ma in the late Miocene on the Yunnan–Guizhou Plateau, which closely matches the geological origin of the both islands. Expand
Phylogeography and ecological niche modeling reveal evolutionary history of Leiolepis ocellata (Squamata, Leiolepidae)
TLDR
Environmental niche modeling suggested an expansion of suitable habitats of L. ocellata, when LGM‐liked conditions, which potentially facilitated their dispersal among adjacent localities leading to lineage diversification and genetic admixture, after the riverine divergence. Expand
Coalescence Models Reveal the Rise of the White-Bellied Rat (Niviventer confucianus) Following the Loss of Asian Megafauna
TLDR
The demographic history of N. confucianus suggests that these rodents directly profited from the loss of megafauna, while their most recent increases potentially led to the proliferation of zoonotic disease by this species. Expand
Phylogeography of the cicada Platypleura hilpa in subtropical and tropical East Asia based on mitochondrial and nuclear genes and microsatellite markers.
TLDR
This work investigated the population genetic structure, diversity and demographic history of the cicada Platypleura hilpa which occurs in coastal areas of southern China and northeastern Indo-Burma, and analysed the potential impact of climate change and geological events on its evolutionary history. Expand
Multilocus phylogeography of the brown-spotted pitviper Protobothrops mucrosquamatus (Reptilia: Serpentes: Viperidae) sheds a new light on the diversification pattern in Asia.
TLDR
A complex longitudinal and latitudinal diversification pattern was uncovered in P. mucrosquamatus, and tests of intraspecific taxonomy indicated that no cryptic taxon is present within this widely distributed snake. Expand
Spatial genetic structure of the cyprinid fish Onychostoma lepturum on Hainan Island
TLDR
The results of a statistical dispersal-vicariance analysis suggest that the ancestral populations were distributed widely on Hainan Island, and the rising of the central mountainous area of Hainen Island, the Wuzhi and Yinggeling Mountain Range, separated these four drainages into independent lineages.

Phylogeography and population structure of the Reevese's Butterfly Lizard (Leiolepis reevesii) inferred from mitochondrial DNA sequences.
TLDR
To assess the genetic diversity within L. reevesii, and its population structure and evolutionary history, sequenced 1004 bp of cytochrome b for 448 individuals collected from 28 localities covering almost the whole range of the lizard. Expand
Phylogeography of the Japanese pipistrelle bat, Pipistrellus abramus, in China: the impact of ancient and recent events on population genetic structure
TLDR
The authors' mitochondrial DNA tree recovered two divergent geographical clades, indicating multiple glacial refugia in the region, and highlights the importance of using multiple sets of markers for teasing apart the roles of ancient and more recent events on population genetic structure. Expand
A new scenario for the quaternary history of European beech populations: palaeobotanical evidence and genetic consequences.
TLDR
The largely complementary palaeobotanical and genetic data indicate that beech survived the last glacial period in multiple refuge areas and the modern genetic diversity was shaped over multiple glacial-interglacial cycles. Expand
Pleistocene climatic cycling drives intra‐specific diversification in the intermediate horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus affinis) in Southern China
TLDR
This study highlights the important role of climate‐mediated sea level changes have had in shaping current processes and patterns of population structure and taxonomic diversification in the horseshoe bat Rhinolophus affinis. Expand
Phylogeography of Chinese bamboo partridge, Bambusicola thoracica thoracica (Aves: Galliformes) in south China: inference from mitochondrial DNA control-region sequences.
TLDR
The mtDNA marker suggested the existence of a geographical structure among Chinese bamboo partridge populations, resulting from the synergistic affect of Pleistocene climatic variations, as well as two robustly supported clades. Expand
Phylogeography of Diadophis punctatus: extensive lineage diversity and repeated patterns of historical demography in a trans-continental snake.
TLDR
Coalescent and non-coalescent demographic analyses indicate that independent lineages currently occupying previously glaciated or unsuitable areas in eastern, central and western US underwent post-glacial population expansion likely from southern refugia during the late Pleistocene/early Holocene, and southern lineages display patterns consistent with long-term population stability.

Testing Pleistocene refugia theory: phylogeographical analysis of Desmognathus wrighti, a high‐elevation salamander in the southern Appalachians
TLDR
It is proposed that intrinsic barriers to dispersal, such as species interactions with other southern Appalachian plethodontid salamanders, persisted during the Pleistocene to maintain the fragmented distribution of D. wrighti and allow for significant genetic divergence of populations by restricting gene flow.

Comparisons of life history traits of C. versicolor are compared to understand variation in life hi story with reference to their geographical distrib ution and emergent life history patterns from the comparisons are discussed. Expand

The genetic legacy of aridification: climate cycling fostered lizard diversification in Australian montane refugia and left low-lying deserts genetically depauperate.
TLDR
It is demonstrated with multiple datasets from Australian geckos that topographically complex mountain regions harbor high nucleotide diversity, up to 18 times higher than that of the surrounding desert lowlands, and that taxa in topologically complex areas have older coalescent histories than those in the geologically younger deserts.
