Spatiotemporal diversification of a low‐vagility Neotropical vertebrate clade (short‐tailed opossums, Didelphidae: Monodelphis)
To infer historical‐biogeographical patterns and processes in South America based on estimated divergence times and ancestral distributions for a diverse clade of small marsupials (Monodelphis).
Biogeography and evolutionary history of the Neotropical genus Saltator (Aves: Thraupini)
We reconstructed the biogeographical and evolutionary history of Saltator by producing a robust phylogenetic hypothesis that we used to evaluate the geographical origins of this genus, and assessed
Phylogenetic relationships, diversification and biogeography in Neotropical Brotogeris parakeets
A molecular phylogenetic analysis of Brotogeris (Psittacidae) is presented, test the monophyly of the genus, delineate the basal taxa within it, uncover their phylogenetic relationships, and perform temporal and spatial comparative analyses to help elucidate the historical biogeography of the Neotropical region.
Palaeoclimates and Amazon biodiversity

Are the Northern Andes a species pump for Neotropical birds? Phylogenetics and biogeography of a clade of Neotropical tanagers (Aves: Thraupini)
The phylogeny of this Neotropical bird group is used to identify areas of vicariance, reconstruct ancestral zoogeographical areas and elevational distributions, and to investigate the correspondence of geological events to speciation events.
A review of the Amazonian short-tailed opossum Monodelphis emiliae (Thomas)
Monodelphis emihae (Thomas) generalement considere comme conspecifique avec M. brevicaudata (Erxleben), est une espece distincte sympatrique de M. brevicaudata. D'abord connu seulement de la rive
The role of physical geography and habitat type in shaping the biogeographical history of a recent radiation of Neotropical marsupials (Thylamys: Didelphidae)
The biogeographical history of species within the sister‐genera Thylamys and Lestodelphys, Neotropical marsupials that primarily inhabit open biomes, is reconstructed to test the extent to which physical geography and habitat type shaped patterns of diversification.
A New Species of the Didelphid Marsupial Genus Monodelphis from Eastern Bolivia
A new species of the didelphid marsupial genus Monodelphis is described from the eastern Bolivian province of Santa Cruz, which belongs to the M. brevicaudata group but differs from other taxa within that clade in size, qualitative morphological characters, and cytochrome-b gene sequences.
Genetic variation and geographical structure of five mouse‐sized opossums (Marsupialia, Didelphidae) throughout the Guiana Region
The patterns of genetic variation and geographical structure of five forest‐dwelling didelphid species distributed throughout the Guiana Region and the broader geographical context of the taxon ranges are studied.
Evolutionary affinities of the ‘Lost World’ mouse suggest a late Pliocene connection between the Guiana and Brazilian shields
To investigate the biogeographical history of the Pantepui region based on the phylogenetic relationships and divergence dates of a tepui‐endemic small mammal: the Roraima mouse, Podoxymys roraimae.
