Taxonomy: Sus bucculentus revisited
TLDR
An additional tissue sample from the specimen is analysed and places the sample within the S. scrofa clade, calling into question the species status of S. bucculentus and demonstrating the need for both phylogenetic and morphological evidence in defining species. Expand
The Evolution of Suidae.
TLDR
The current knowledge of this fascinating group of Cetartiodactyla is reviewed and a comprehensive evolutionary history from the Oligocene to the present day is provided. Expand
A new species of muntjac, Muntiacus putaoensis (Artiodactyla: Cervidae) from northern Myanmar
TLDR
A new species of barking deer is described from northern Myanmar, contributing significantly to knowledge of this poorly studied group and highlighting the importance of continued field surveys in remote regions. Expand
Interrelationships Between Wild Boars ( Sus scrofa ) and Truffles
TLDR
Because wild boar can move as much as 15 km in a day, they efficiently contribute to long-distance dispersal of truffle spores and results in wild boars playing a pivotal role in truffle colonization of new habitats. Expand
Revisiting the species status of Pecari maximus van Roosmalen et al., 2007 (Mammalia) from the Brazilian Amazon
TLDR
Evidence using 91 published and 50 novel DNA sequences mainly from P. tajacu and morphological and ecological data used to claim the species status of P. maximus appears to be deficient and inconclusive, in the light of available literature. Expand
The phylogenetic species concept and its role in Southeast Asian mammal conservation
TLDR
The real debate appears to be about the best method to allocate an appropriate taxonomic rank to taxa that is in line with their evolutionary distinctness and thus the need to prevent their extinction. Expand
NEW FINDINGS ON THE DISTRIBUTION , MORPHOLOGY , AND NATURAL HISTORY OF TRICERATOLEPIDOPHIS SIEVERSORUM ( SERPENTES : VIPERIDAE )
The Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park (PKNP) in central Vietnam and the Hin Namno National Biodiversity Conservation Area (NBCA) in central Laos border each other and form part of the largestExpand
Evolutionary history of the genus Sus inferred from cytochrome b sequences.
TLDR
The relationship between SEA species was investigated, and Morphological analyses point toward the identification of two main lineages, one leading to scrofa/celebensis/philippensis and the other to barbatus/verrucosus, but molecular evidence does not support the same grouping, but mergesScrofa, barbatus and verrucosUS. Expand
Status and Conservation of Douc Langurs (Pygathrix nemaeus) in Laos
TLDR
Douc langurs are threatened in Laos by habitat fragmentation increasing their vulnerability to the existing high hunting levels, and Protective measures should center around implementing habitat conservation and antihunting measures in the recently-declared National Biodiversity Conservation Areas. Expand
Hidden morphological support for the phylogenetic placement of Pseudoryx nghetinhensis with bovine bovids: a combined analysis of gross anatomical evidence and DNA sequences from five genes.
TLDR
Combined analyses of the DNA data and published morphological evidence place Pseudoryx with Bovini (cattle and buffaloes), a subclade of Bovinae, while phylogenetic analyses of DNA sequences from five genes are used to test alternatives to the hypothesis that Pseudothyx is a close relative of Caprinae.
