The Central Asian agamid lizards are ecologically and morphologically diverse, occurring across a broad range of desert environments in this biogeographically important region. It is probable that past climatic shifts have significantly influenced the diversification patterns and distributions of the agamid lizards of this region. To assess this within a phylogenetic framework we sequenced a approximately 1200 bp region of mitochondrial DNA and a approximately 1200 bp nuclear gene (RAG-1… CONTINUE READING
