A review of the taxonomic status of the Bent-toed Gecko Cyrtodactylus quadrivirgatus Taylor, 1962 based on a molecularphylogeny, scalation, and color pattern analyses indicate that it is composed of a single, recently expanding, widespreadpopulation with weakly supported phylogeographic substructuring with no discrete morphological differentiation betweenpopulations. However, based on sampling, significant mean differences in selected scale counts occur between some pop-ulations. The molecular… Expand

Multilocus phylogeny of Bornean Bent-Toed Geckos (Gekkonidae: Cyrtodactylus) reveals hidden diversity, taxonomic disarray, and novel biogeographic patterns.
TLDR
This investigation of Bornean Cyrtodactylus is the most comprehensive to-date and highlights the need for expanded taxonomic sampling and suggests that knowledge of the evolutionary history, systematics, and biogeography of BORNEO is far from complete. Expand
Phylogeny of bent-toed geckos (Cyrtodactylus) reveals a west to east pattern of diversification.
TLDR
The phylogenetic results show Cyrtodactylus to have originated in the circum-Himalayan region just after the Cretaceous/Paleogene boundary, with a generally west to east pattern of colonization and diversification progressing through the Cenozoic. Expand
Repeated evolution of sympatric, palaeoendemic species in closely related, co-distributed lineages of Hemiphyllodactylus Bleeker, 1860 (Squamata: Gekkonidae) across a sky-island archipelago in Peninsular Malaysia
A time-calibrated phylogenetic tree indicates that the evolution of sympatric, montane, endemic species from closely related, co-distributed lineages of the Hemiphyllodactylus harterti group were notExpand
A NEW BENT-TOED GECKO SPECIES OF THE GENUS Cyrtodactylus GRAY, 1827 (SQUAMATA : GEKKONIDAE) FROM THE WEST BALI NATIONAL PARK, BALI, INDONESIA
A new bent-toed gecko species of the genus Cyrtodactylus is described herein from West Bali National Park on the island of Bali, Indonesia. The Cyrtodactylus from Bali have been recognized as C.Expand
Phylogenetic relationships and description of a new upland species of Bent-toed Gecko (Cyrtodactylus Gray, 1827) of the C. sworderi complex from northeastern Peninsular Malaysia.
Molecular and morphological analyses indicate that a new upland species of the Cyrtodactylus sworderi complex, C. tebuensis sp. nov. from Gunung Tebu, Terengganu, Malaysia is most closely related toExpand
Phylogenetic analyses of distantly related clades of bent-toed geckos (genus Cyrtodactylus) reveal an unprecedented amount of cryptic diversity in northern and western Thailand
TLDR
Overall, the results suggest a pattern of geographic separation and distribution of Cyrtodactylus in northern and western Thailand, and provides evidence of a hidden biodiversity in these regions. Expand

Phylogeny of bent-toed geckos (Cyrtodactylus) reveals a west to east pattern of diversification.
TLDR
The phylogenetic results show Cyrtodactylus to have originated in the circum-Himalayan region just after the Cretaceous/Paleogene boundary, with a generally west to east pattern of colonization and diversification progressing through the Cenozoic. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of Philippine bent-toed geckos (Gekkonidae: Cyrtodactylus) contradict a prevailing model of Pleistocene diversification.
TLDR
This study contributes to a nascent body of literature suggesting that the current paradigm for Philippine biogeography is an oversimplification requiring revision, and finds complex patterns that are only partially explained by past island connectivity. Expand
A phylogeny of the enigmatic Madagascan geckos of the genus Uroplatus (Squamata: Gekkonidae)
TLDR
Based on a larger, more inclusive dataset, the closest relatives of Uroplatus are mainland African Afrogecko and Madagascan Matoatoa, suggesting that the diverse Malagasy gecko fauna does not comprise a single evolutionary lineage. Expand
Accounting for phylogenetic uncertainty in biogeography: a Bayesian approach to dispersal-vicariance analysis of the thrushes (Aves: Turdus).
TLDR
A Bayesian approach to dispersal-vicariance analysis is applied that allows a more accurate analysis of the biogeographic history of lineages and finds that despite the uncertainty in tree topology, ancestral area reconstructions indicate that the Turdus clade originated in the eastern Palearctic during the Late Miocene.

Three new species of Cyrtodactylus (Squamata: Gekkonidae) from Peninsular Malaysia
Three new species of the gekkonid genus Cyrtodactylus are described from Peninsular Malaysia; C. jarakensis sp. nov. from Pulau Jarak off the west coast of Perak, C. batucolus sp. nov. from PulauExpand
A new insular species of Cyrtodactylus (Squamata: Gekkonidae) from northeastern Peninsular Malaysia, Malaysia
A new species of endemic Cyrtodactylus is described from Pulau Tenggol, Terengganu, off the northeastern coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It differs from other Sunda Shelf species by having a maximumExpand
Molecular phylogenetics, tRNA evolution, and historical biogeography in anguid lizards and related taxonomic families.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of evolutionary changes in the gene encoding tRNA(Cys) suggests gradual reduction of dihydrouridine (D) stems by successive deletion of bases in some lineages, which contrasts with the one observed for parallel elimination of the D-stem in mitochondrial tRNAs of eight other reptile groups, in which replication slippage produces direct repeats. Expand
Pairwise comparisons of mitochondrial DNA sequences in stable and exponentially growing populations.
TLDR
In an exponentially growing population in which the product of the current population size and the growth rate is substantially larger than one, the analytical and simulation results show that most coalescent events occur relatively early and in a restricted range of times. Expand
MEGA5: molecular evolutionary genetics analysis using maximum likelihood, evolutionary distance, and maximum parsimony methods.
TLDR
The newest addition in MEGA5 is a collection of maximum likelihood (ML) analyses for inferring evolutionary trees, selecting best-fit substitution models, inferring ancestral states and sequences, and estimating evolutionary rates site-by-site. Expand
BEAST: Bayesian evolutionary analysis by sampling trees
TLDR
BEAST is a fast, flexible software architecture for Bayesian analysis of molecular sequences related by an evolutionary tree that provides models for DNA and protein sequence evolution, highly parametric coalescent analysis, relaxed clock phylogenetics, non-contemporaneous sequence data, statistical alignment and a wide range of options for prior distributions.
