Abstract Phylogenetic relationships within the Italian species of the lacertid genus Podarcis were examined by parsimony analysis of mitochondrial DNA sequences from the genes encoding the small ribosomal RNA and the phenyl transfer RNA. Lacerta viridis was used as outgroup and Teira dugesii was also included in the ingroup. The 80 phylogenetically informative positions produced four most parsimonious trees, with the Italian Podarcis split into three groups: the first comprised P. filfolensis… Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the Palaearctic butterfly genus Pseudophilotes (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) with focus on the Sardinian endemic P. barbagiae
TLDR
The results show that the last common ancestor of the Pseudophilotes genus probably lived in the Messinian period and support the current taxonomy of the genus, although P. barbagiae turned out to be a young endemic, but clearly with European instead of North African origin and evolved through allopatric isolation on the island of Sardinia only about 0.74 Mya.

Phylogenetic relationships of Podarcis siculus (Rafinesque-Schmaltz, 1810) and Podarcis tauricus (Pallas, 1814) in Turkey, based on mitochondrial DNA
TLDR
Most of the top identical trees of phylogenetic analyses and p-distances showed that monophyly was found in extant populations of P. s. siculus and P. t. tauricus in Turkey. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics of Iberian wall lizards (Podarcis): is Podarcis hispanica a species complex?
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships between species and morphotypes of Podarcis wall lizards from the Iberian Peninsula and north Africa were estimated using partial 12S rRNA and cytochrome b mitochondrial DNA sequences and suggest that P. hispanica is a species complex. Expand
An integrated Assessment of a group with complex systematics: the Iberomaghrebian lizard genus Podarcis (Squamata, Lacertidae).
TLDR
The ecological analysis presented here does not support exploitative competition, but rather behavioral interference between forms, and ecomorph classification of lineages suggests character displacement between those with extensive range overlap. Expand
Phylogeography of Balkan wall lizard (Podarcis taurica) and its relatives inferred from mitochondrial DNA sequences
TLDR
The data analysed stress the need for a reconsideration of the evolutionary history of Greek Podarcis species and help overcome difficulties that classical taxonomy has encountered at both the species level. Expand
Phylogeography of the Italian wall lizard, Podarcis sicula, as revealed by mitochondrial DNA sequences
TLDR
The present distribution patterns were interpreted as the consequence of natural events like retreats to glacial refuges and postglacial area expansions, but also as the results of multiple introductions by man. Expand
Can mitochondrial DNA draw the phylogenetic picture of Central Mediterranean island Podarcisl
  • 2008
Five species of wall lizards (genus Podarcis) occur on the Central Mediterranean Islands of Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, the Malta Archipelago and surrounding islets: P. sicula (RAFINESQUE-SCHMALTZ,Expand
Molecular characterization of native (Italy) and introduced (USA) Podarcis sicula populations (Reptilia, Lacertidae)
TLDR
Partial sequences from the 12S rDNA, that had proved diagnostic for the three main subspecies, were used to test specimens from marginal native and from intro duced American populations, finding mitochondrial haplotypes clearly of the campestris type. Expand

Genetic variation within endemic Podarcis lizards from the Balearic Islands inferred from partial Cytochrome b sequences
TLDR
The results suggest that currently accepted subspecies do not form monophyletic groups, and so should be reassessed, and it seems that the forms on the islands are not genetically distinct units, implying that morphological differences are recent adaptations to their environments. Expand

TLDR
The data suggest that the cladogenic events leading to species formation in Euproctus and Triturus occurred very closely in time, indicating that the two genera may not be monophyletic. Expand

TLDR
Until additional data can be gathered, the current classification of the Palearctic Lacertidae cannot be much improved and it is recommended adherence to the taxonomy proposed by Arnold (1973). Expand
DNA systematics and evolution of the artiodactyl family Bovidae.
TLDR
These sequence comparisons suggest that most bovid tribes originated early in the Miocene with all extant lineages present by approximately 16-17 million years ago, and provide an example of rapid cladogenesis, following the origin of families in the infraorder Pecora. Expand
Genetic variation and differentiation in the lizard, Podarcis wagleriana (Reptilia: Lacertidae)
TLDR
Electrophoretic data and comparative species distributions suggest that Podarcis sicula recently colonized the Aeolian Islands, and it has competed successfully with P. raffonei in this area, greatly reducing the range of the latter and causing the extinction of most of its populations. Expand

TLDR
Important differences between Podarcis muralis andPodarcis tiliguerta are apparently sufficient to justify the maintenance of this taxon at the specific level, and the diminution of percentage of polymorphic loci for micro-insular P. tiligUerta populations according to the removal from Sardinia and the estimate separation's time is established.

TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis does not uphold the conventional subspecies, but suggests an alternative arrangement with one northern (La Palma, Tenerife) and one southern (Gomera, Hierro) subspecies. Expand
C-band variability and phylogeny of Lacertidae
TLDR
A higher diploid number than that generally observed in most species of Lacertidae and supernumerary chromosomes have been observed in three of the species investigated and an evident interand intraspecific variability has been found in the C-banding pattern of the various species studied. Expand
Systematics and adaptive radiation of Equatorial African lizards assigned to the genera Adolfus, Bedriagaia, Gastropholis, Holaspis and Lacerta (Reptilia: Lacertidae)
TLDR
The Equatorial African group of lacertids comprises nine species which share a number of derived features and appear to constitute a holophyletic assemblage and Adolfus jacksoni has most features in common with the hypothetical ancestor of the group, while Holaspis guentheri and the species of Gastropholis are the most derived forms.
