Aim  We discuss biogeographical hypotheses for the Mediterranean lizard species Podarcis and Teira within a phylogenetic framework based on partial mitochondrial DNA sequences. Methods  We derived the most likely phylogenetic hypothesis from our data set (597 aligned positions from the 12S rDNA and phenyl tRNA) under parsimony, distance and maximum likelihood assumptions. Results  The species usually included in Teira do not form a strongly monophyletic clade. In contrast, the… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Reexamination of the Iberian and North African Podarcis (Squamata: Lacertidae) phylogeny based on increased mitochondrial DNA sequencing.
TLDR
Wall lizards (Podarcis spp.) were one of the most studied groups, perhaps due to the complexity of taxonomical entities within this genus by morphological analysis only, due to an extreme intraspeciWc variability coupled with low variation between species. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships and biogeography of Podarcis species from the Balkan Peninsula, by bayesian and maximum likelihood analyses of mitochondrial DNA sequences.
TLDR
The results stress the need for a reconsideration of the evolutionary history of Balkan Podarcis species and help overcome difficulties that classical taxonomy has encountered at both the species and subspecies level. Expand
Are Iberian endemics Iberian?. A case-study using water beetles of family Dytiscidae (Coleoptera)
The phylogenetic relationships and the geographical origin of 27 of the 34 species and of 3 of the 9 subspecies of Iberian endemic Dytiscidae are studied, based on species level phylogeniesExpand
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
Determination of genetic diversity within the insular lizard Podarcis tiliguerta using mtDNA sequence data, with a reassessment of the phylogeny of Podarcis
Despite being the predominant reptile group in Southern Europe, the taxonomy of Podarcis Wall lizards is both complex and unstable. Recent attempts to estimate a phylogeny for the genus usingExpand
The genus Cyphophthalmus (Arachnida, Opiliones, Cyphophthalmi) in Europe: a phylogenetic approach to Balkan Peninsula biogeography.
TLDR
Analysis of phylogenetic data to characterize the relationships among sironids centered in the Balkan region reveals monophyly of a Balkan clade for which the name Cyphophthalmus is resurrected, considered a junior synonym of Siro for over a century. Expand
Hidden diversity in the Podarcis tauricus (Sauria, Lacertidae) species subgroup in the light of multilocus phylogeny and species delimitation.
TLDR
Using sequence data from two mitochondrial and three nuclear genes and applying several phylogenetic methods and species delimitation approaches to an extensive dataset, this work reconstructed the phylogeny of the Podarcis wall lizards in the Balkans, and re-investigated the taxonomic status of the P. t. Expand
Molecular phylogeny and biogeography of the wall-lizard Podarcis erhardii (Squamata: Lacertidae).
TLDR
The DNA based biogeographical and phylogenetic history of Podarcis in Southern Greece is congruent with available paleogeographic data of the region, which supports the view that DNA sequences may be a useful tool for the study of palaeogeography. Expand
Comparing patterns of nuclear and mitochondrial divergence in a cryptic species complex: the case of Iberian and North African wall lizards (Podarcis, Lacertidae)
TLDR
Relationships between forms are weakly supported both by population and individual clustering methods, suggesting a scenario of a rapid diversification that contrasts to the clear bifurcating model assumed from previous mtDNA analyses. Expand
Complex patterns of genetic diversity within Lacerta (Teira) perspicillata: Preliminary evidence from 12S rRNA sequence data
TLDR
To investigate genetic diversity within L. perspicillata, part of the 12S rRNA gene was sequenced from individuals from several populations including all three forms, and compared this to subspeciŽ c status. Expand

Relationships of lacertid lizards (Reptilia: Lacertidae) estimated from mitochondrial DNA sequences and morphology
TLDR
DNA sequences from parts of the 12S, 16S and cytochrome b mitochondrial genes were used to estimate the relationships of 49 species of Lacertidae, supporting an origin for present lacertids in west Eurasia. Expand
Molecular Relationships among Iberian, Moroccan, and South African Lacertid Lizards (Reptilia: Lacertidae)
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
Relationships of Wall Lizards, Podarcis (Reptilia: Lacertidae) Based on Mitochondrial DNA Sequences
Mitochondrial DNA sequence data support conclusions based on morphology, that Podarcis is a clade and is derived from the paraphyletic genus Lacerta, its immediate outgroups being LacertaExpand
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.

MITOCHONDRIAL DNA DIVERGENCE SUGGESTS THAT PODARCIS HISPANICA ATRATA (SQUAMATA : LACERTIDAE) FROM THE COLUMBRETES ISLANDS MERITS SPECIFIC DISTINCTION
Endemic species and island populations are particularly prone to extinction (Reid and Miller, 1989; Frankham, 1997). For this reason, their identification and protection is particularly important.Expand
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENETICS OF THE ITALIAN PODARCIS LIZARDS (REPTILIA, LACERTIDAE)
TLDR
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, and the present results are only partly in agreement with previous hypotheses. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the Canary Island lacertids (Gallotia): mitochondrial DNA restriction fragment divergence in relation to sequence divergence and geological time
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
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
Mitochondrial DNA rates and biogeography in European newts (genus Euproctus).
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
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
