Using mtDNA sequencing and allozyme electrophoresis data, we tested the "vicariance followed by dispersal" hypothesis of the Bufo gargarizans species group and re-evaluated the species status in the general lineages species concept. A phylogenetic analysis suggested that dispersal, instead of vicariance, dominated the history of the species group. There was a general trend of west to east dispersal, while some lineages from the east subsequently returned to the west. The secondary admixture of… Expand
Population Genetic Structure and Species Status of Asiatic Toads (Bufo gargarizans) in Western China
TLDR
Overall, these toad populations harbor a large amount of genetic diversity and have very high population differentiation, but taken together the evidence suggests that all populations belong to a single species. Expand
Population genetic structure and phylogeographical pattern of rice grasshopper, Oxya hyla intricata, across Southeast Asia
TLDR
The past geological events and climatic fluctuations are the most important factor on the phylogeographical structure and genetic patterns of O. hyla intricata populations, which might have been caused by climatic oscillations during glacial periods in the Quaternary. Expand
A New Phylogeographic Pattern of Endemic Bufo bankorensis in Taiwan Island Is Attributed to the Genetic Variation of Populations
TLDR
The results suggest that the population expansion of Taiwan Island species B. bankorensis might have resulted from the release of available habitat in post-glacial periods, the genetic variation on mtDNA showing habitat selection, subsequent population dispersal, and co-distribution among clades. Expand
Past and present: Phylogeography of the Bufo gargarizans species complex inferred from multi-loci allele sequence and frequency data.
TLDR
The authors' phylogenetic analyses showed that the observed divergence in the B. gargarizans species complex likely dated back to 7-8 million years ago, and likely represents a meta-population dynamic that has emerged over the past ∼10,000 years. Expand
Multilocus species tree analyses resolve the radiation of the widespread Bufo bufo species group (Anura, Bufonidae).
TLDR
Coalescent-based estimations of time to most recent common ancestors for each species and selected subclades allowed historical reconstruction of the diversification of the species group in the context of Mediterranean paleogeography and indicated a long evolutionary history in this region. Expand
Population Genetics and Phylogeography of Bufo gargarizans in China
TLDR
Phylogeographic analyses suggested that past fragmentation and/or long-distance colonization seemed to have shaped the present-day distribution of the haplotypes of B. gargarizans. Expand
Molecular phylogeography and population structure of a mid-elevation montane frog Leptobrachium ailaonicum in a fragmented habitat of southwest China.
TLDR
Analysis of molecular variance indicates that most of the observed genetic variation occurs among the four regions implying long-term interruption of maternal gene flow, suggesting that L. ailaonicum may represent more than one distinct species and should at least be separated into four management units corresponding to these four geographic lineages for conservation. Expand
Multilocus phylogeography of the brown-spotted pitviper Protobothrops mucrosquamatus (Reptilia: Serpentes: Viperidae) sheds a new light on the diversification pattern in Asia.
TLDR
A complex longitudinal and latitudinal diversification pattern was uncovered in P. mucrosquamatus, and tests of intraspecific taxonomy indicated that no cryptic taxon is present within this widely distributed snake. Expand
Molecular phylogeography of endangered sharp-snouted pitviper (Deinagkistrodon acutus; Reptilia, Viperidae) in Mainland China.
TLDR
The results show that isolation, dispersal, bottleneck, and expansion jointly constitute the history of D. acutus, a threatened snake species with commercial and medicinal importance in China. Expand
Vicariance and Its Impact on the Molecular Ecology of a Chinese Ranid Frog Species-Complex (Odorrana schmackeri, Ranidae)
TLDR
Molecular analysis suggest that the Odorrana schmackeri species complex may represent seven different species, three described species and four cryptic species and should at least be separated into seven management units corresponding to these seven geographic lineages for conservation. Expand

Phylogenetic relationships of bufonid frogs and tests of alternate macroevolutionary hypotheses characterizing their radiation
TLDR
To examine phylogenetic relationships within Bufonidae and test these alternate hypotheses, DNA sequence data were obtained from four genes, three mitochondrial and one nuclear, from populations throughout the geographic and taxonomic breadth of the family. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of toads in the Bufo bufo species group from the eastern escarpment of the Tibetan Plateau: a case of vicariance and dispersal.
TLDR
The most parsimonious phylogenetic tree places the high-elevation species, B. andrewsi, as the sister taxon to the other Asian Bufo populations; these high-Elevation populations are postulated to have had a vicariant origin approximately 5 million years before present. Expand
Genetic Diversity of Eastern Batrachuperus (Caudata: Hynobiidae)
TLDR
The distribution patterns of the mitochondrial haplotypes of the northwestern populations indicated that the dispersal or divergence of Batrachuperus might not be confined to river valleys, although all species in the genus are fully aquatic. Expand
Phylogeny of east asian bufonids inferred from mitochondrial DNA sequences (Anura: amphibia).
TLDR
The relationships of Asian bufonids are investigated using partial sequences of mitochondrial DNA genes and the genus Torrentophryne should be synonymized with Bufo to remove paraphyly. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships among Agamid lizards of the Laudakia caucasia species group: testing hypotheses of biogeographic fragmentation and an area cladogram for the Iranian Plateau.
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships within the Laudakia caucasia species group on the Iranian Plateau were investigated using 1708 aligned bases of mitochondrial DNA sequence from the genes encoding ND1 (subunit one of NADH dehydrogenase) and COI, and every branch of the phylogenetic tree is well supported.

Long-distance colonization and radiation in gekkonid lizards, Tarentola (Reptilia: Gekkonidae), revealed by mitochondrial DNA sequences
TLDR
Partial DNA sequences derived from the mitochondrial cytochrome b and 12S rRNA genes are used to trace migration and speciation in Tarentola geckos, a primarily North African clade which has invaded many of the warmer islands in the North Atlantic Ocean. Expand
Molecular Phylogeny of the Genus Paramesotriton (Caudata: Salamandridae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic trees that were constructed from the combined data set of the three gene fragments indicated that all six species of Paramesotriton formed a monophyletic group, with P. caudopunctatus as basal to the other five species. Expand
Molecular tests of phylogenetic taxonomies: a general procedure and example using four subfamilies of the lizard family Iguanidae.
TLDR
Tests of monophyly for four subfamilies in the lizard family Iguanidae using 1561 aligned base positions of mitochondrial DNA sequences, representing coding regions for eight tRNAs, ND2, and portions of ND1 and COI, suggest that the Tropidurinae is not monophyletic but the hypothesis ofmonophyly cannot be rejected.

TLDR
This chapter provides a general theoretical context that accounts for both the unity and the diversity of ideas represented by alternative species definitions, and proposes a revised and conceptually unified terminology for the ideas described by contemporary species definitions. Expand
