Abstract In order to elucidate the taxonomic status of the Fejervarya limnocharis complex relative to Malaysia and Japan populations, morphological observations and molecular phylogenetic analysis were carried out using three populations from Indonesia (type locality), Malaysia, and Japan. In addition, we conducted histological and spermatogenic observations using hybrids among these populations. Principal component and cluster analyses demonstrated that these populations could be clearly… Expand
Genetic Divergence and Evolutionary Relationship in Fejervarya cancrivora from Indonesia and Other Asian Countries Inferred from Allozyme and MtDNA Sequence Analyses
TLDR
The results suggest that each of the three types of Fejervarya cancrivora can be regarded as a distinct species. Expand
Genetic Divergence and Reproductive Isolation in the Genus Fejervarya (Amphibia: Anura) from Bangladesh Inferred from Morphological Observations, Crossing Experiments, and Molecular Analyses
TLDR
Morphological examinations, crossing experiments and molecular analyses showed that the Bangladesh Fejervarya species were largely divided into three groups: the mangrove type, large type, and others, with the last further subdivided into the medium and small types. Expand
Taxonomic Status of Three Types of Fejervarya cancrivora from Indonesia and Other Asian Countries Based on Morphological Observations and Crossing Experiments
Although the crab-eating frog Fejervarya cancrivora is one of the most widely distributed species in Asian region, taxonomic relationships among different populations remain unclarified. In thisExpand
Genetic divergence and evolutionary relationships in six species of genera Hoplobatrachus and Euphlyctis (Amphibia: Anura) from Bangladesh and other Asian countries revealed by mitochondrial gene sequences.
TLDR
Prior underestimation of the richness of the amphibian fauna in this region was revealed, indicating the possible occurrence of many cryptic species among these groups. Expand
GENETIC DIVERGENCE AND GEOGRAPHIC DISTRIBUTION OF FROGS IN GENUS FEJERVARYA FROM INDONESIA INFERRED FROM MITOCHONDRIAL 16S rRNA GENE ANALYSIS
TLDR
Frogs in genus Fejervarya (Bolkay) are used to study biogeography and examine patterns of gene flow across proposed zoogeographic boundaries to show that there are five FeJervarya species in the Indonesian archipelago. Expand
Molecular Phylogeny of the Diversified Frogs of Genus Fejervarya (Anura: Dicroglossidae)
TLDR
The datasets support paraphyly for the genus Fejervarya, although alternative phylogenetic topologies, including FeJervarya monophyly, were not rejected by KH and SH tests. Expand
Molecular Phylogeny Reconstruction of Grouper (Serranidae: Epinephelinae) at Northern Part of Bird’s Head Seascape - Papua Inferred from COI Gene
TLDR
The DNA sequence of each cytochrome oxidase I (COI) gene was used to study the molecular relationship among closely related species of grouper and highlighted that five genera were represented as a monophyletic group (clade), i.e., Epinephelus, Cephalopholis, Plectropomus, Saloptia and Variola. Expand
Phylogeography of the Rice Frog, Fejervarya multistriata (Anura: Ranidae), from China Based on mtDNA D-loop Sequences
TLDR
This study sampled the species across its distributional area in China and sequenced the mtDNA D-loop to investigate the genetic diversity and geographical pattern of the frog population, finding 38 haplotypes in the population. Expand
Mitogenome of Fejervarya multistriata: a novel gene arrangement and its evolutionary implications.
TLDR
The results suggested that Fejervarya limnocharis and FeJervarya multistriata may be conspecific, because of its low pairwise genetic distance, but these results must be further validated with additional analyses. Expand
A New Species of Frog (Anura: Dicroglossidae) Discovered from the Mega City of Dhaka
TLDR
A new species of frog of the genus Zakerana discovered from the urban core of Dhaka, Bangladesh, one of the most densely populated cities in the world, is described and can be distinguished from all congeners on the basis of morphological characters, advertisement calls and variation in two mitochondrial DNA genes.

Genetic Divergences and Phylogenetic Relationships Among the Fejervarya limnocharis Complex in Thailand and Neighboring Countries Revealed by Mitochondrial and Nuclear Genes
TLDR
Neither the mitochondrial nor the nuclear data clarified intergeneric relationships, but thenuclear data rejected the monophyly of the genus Fejervarya. Expand
Evolutionary Relationships and Reproductive Isolating Mechanisms in the Rice Frog (Fejervarya limnocharis) Species Complex from Sri Lanka, Thailand, Taiwan and Japan, Inferred from mtDNA Gene Sequences, Allozymes, and Crossing Experiments
TLDR
The mtDNA and allozyme data showed that the Ranong population is most closely related to the Bangkok population in nuclear genome, but more similar to the Okinawa and Taiwan populations in mtDNA genome. Expand
Inter- and intraspecific evolutionary relationships of the rice frog Rana limnocharis and the allied species R. cancrivora inferred from crossing experiments and mitochondrial DNA sequences of the 12S and 16S rRNA genes.
TLDR
The hybridization experiments revealed that there were no reproductively isolating mechanisms between the Sakishima-island populations and other populations of R. limnocharis and an allied species, Rana cancrivora, and based on the present crossing experiments and molecular data, it seems reasonable to regard the Sakishingima- island populations as a single subspecies of Rana limnoCharis.

Genetic Relationships and Reproductive-isolation Mechanisms among the Fejervarya limnocharis Complex from Indonesia (Java) and Other Asian Countries
TLDR
The present allozyme analyses and crossing experiments strongly suggested the presence of two distinct forms, the large type and the small type, in the F. limnocharis complex from Asia, and further subdivision of theLarge type was found in samples from India, Thailand, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, and included at least three different species. Expand
Reproductive Isolating Mechanisms and Molecular Phylogenetic Relationships among Palearctic and Oriental Brown Frogs
TLDR
The phylogenetic tree based on nucleotide sequence data from the mitochondrial 12S and 16S rRNA genes of the Palearctic and Oriental brown frogs showed that the three taxa are included in a cluster together with the other species with 2n=24 chromosomes, supporting the hypothesis that each of them is a separate but closely related species. Expand
Genetic Divergence among Southeast and East Asian Populations of Rana limnocharis (Amphibia: Anura), with Special Reference to Sympatric Cryptic Species in Java
TLDR
Results indicated that specimens from a single locality in Java derived from two genodemes showing complete allelic displacement at eight out of 25 presumptive loci examined strongly suggest that those specimens actually represent two biological species. Expand
Allozyme variation among east asian populations of the Indian rice frog Rana limnocharis (Amphibia: Anura)
TLDR
Results suggest overseas dispersal of Rana limnocharis across the East China Sea, and genetic distinctiveness of the southern Ryukyu populations indicates the absence of gene flow between these and other populations. Expand
Genetic relationships of the western Mediterranean painted frogs based on allozymes and mitochondrial markers: evolutionary and taxonomic inferences (Amphibia, Anura, Discoglossidae)
TLDR
The genetic relationships between taxa with intermediate levels of divergence were well defined by allozyme data, but showed short internodes and low bootstrap values for mitochondrial data, suggesting a rapid radiation of their lineages during the Messinian Lago Mare phase. Expand
Molecular and bioacoustic divergence in Mantidactylus granulatus and M. zavona n.sp. (Anura: Mantellidae): bearings for the biogeography of northern Madagascar
TLDR
The relatively small differences between M. granulatus from different sites in northern Madagascar supports a biogeographic scenario in which the lowland rainforests in this area were connected in Pliocene Pleistocene times, and may be seen as evidence for a longer isolation of the habitats at these elevational levels. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA Phylogeographic Differentiation among Avian Populations and the Evolutionary Significance of Subspecies
TLDR
Questions are raised concerning the population-genetic and evolutionary significance of current subspecies designations in ornithology, particularly within the Rufous-sided Towhee and Common Yellowthroat. Expand
