Reliable estimates of phylogenetic relationships and divergence times are a crucial requirement for many evolutionary studies, but are usually difficult because fossils are scarce and their interpretation is often uncertain. Frogs are fresh water animals that generally are unable to cross salt water barriers (their skin is readily permeable to both salt and water). The geologically determined ages of salt water barriers that isolate related frog populations thus provide an independent measure… CONTINUE READING
