Abstract. NEW SPECIES OF GIANT TORTOISE OF THE GENUS CHELONOIDIS FITZINGER, 1835 (CRYPTODIRA: TESTUDINIDAE), FROM THE LOWER MEMBER OF THE TOROPÍ/ YUPOÍ FORMATION (LATE PLEISTOCENE/ LUJANIAN), BELLA VISTA, CORRIENTES, ARGENTINA. A new species of giant tortoise from the upper section of the lower member of Toropí/ Yupoí Formation (late Pleistocene, 58–22 ka) is described. The holotype of this new species was recovered at Arroyo Toropí (10 km south from Bella Vista city, Corrientes Province… 
Ancient mitogenomics elucidates diversity of extinct West Indian tortoises
TLDR
The shallow mitochondrial divergences of the two radiations on the Bahamas and the Galápagos Islands suggest that each archipelago sustained only one species of tortoise, and that the taxa currently regarded as distinct species in the Galapagos should be returned to subspecies status.

A Review of the Fossil Record of South American Turtles of the Clade Testudinoidea
Abstract The fossil record of turtles of the clade Testudinoidea is generally poor in South America. Fossil tortoises (Testudinidae) are known from the Late Oligocene to Holocene, but they likely

Tortoises: The Oldest Island Hoppers
Tortoises are terrestrial turtles grouped in the clade Testudinidae. This clade represents 18 % of the living turtle diversity and is the most widespread group of nonmarine turtles, distributed
Changes in the Diversity of Turtles (Testudinata) in South America from the Late Triassic to the Present
Abstract. Recent advances in the fossil record, anatomy, and evolutionary history of South American turtles allow a thorough analysis of their changes in diversity, and to identify several major

TESTUDINOIDEA FITZINGER (TESTUDINES: CRYPTODIRA) DE LA FORMACIÓN TOROPÍ/YUPOÍ (CA. 58-28 KA) EN LA PROVINCIA DE CORRIENTES, ARGENTINA: TAXONOMÍA Y ASPECTOS PALEOAMBIENTALES
TLDR
Comparing the global distribution of extant species of giant testudinids with the climate map of Kottek and collaborators, show congruence with the Tropical and Subtropical zones, characterized by warm climate, suggesting a high degree of thermosensitivity for these extant giant tortoises.

The Tropical Tortoise Chelonoidis denticulata (Testudines: Testudinidae) from the Late Pleistocene of Argentina and Its Paleoclimatological Implications
TLDR
The terrestrial tortoise clade Chelonoidis is endemic to the South American continent and nearby islands and currently thought to be the gigantic sisters of C. chilensis, which lives along the eastern dry slopes of the southern Andes.

Origin and evolutionary relationships of giant Galápagos tortoises.
TLDR
A phylogenetic reconstruction based on mitochondrial DNA sequences from Galápagos tortoises and Geochelone from mainland South America and Africa suggests that the four named southern subspecies on the largest island, Isabela, are not distinct genetic units, whereas a genetically distinct northernmost Isabela subspecies is probably the result of a separate colonization.

TLDR
The role of the cardiovascular system in oxygen transport and thermoregulation in lizards, including the common iguana, to walking and diving and the response to activity under restraint, is investigated.
First Record of Boa Constrictor (Serpentes, Boidae) in the Quaternary of South America
TLDR
These remains represent the first snake record from the Lujanian age and determine the minimum age for the species as 50–35 ka BP, which might be explained by changes in the Paraná and Uruguay Rivers.
