The Indochinese–Sundaic zoogeographic transition: a description and analysis of terrestrial mammal species distributions
TLDR
The distributions of mammal species between the Indochinese and Sundaic subregions are described and the traditional view that the two faunas show a transition near the Isthmus of Kra on the Thai–Malay peninsula is examined.
Neogene marine transgressions, palaeogeography and biogeographic transitions on the Thai–Malay Peninsula
Aim  The aim of this review is to contribute to our understanding of the origination of the Sundaic and Indochinese biotas in Southeast Asia. Numerous unsolved problems surround the origination of
Evolutionary history of the Paradoxurus palm civets – a new model for Asian biogeography
TLDR
The genetic and morphological diversity among species of palm civets in the genus Paradoxurus is investigated, with a focus on the common Palm civet, Paradoxurus hermaphroditus, in order to address biogeographic scenarios and provide recommendations for a taxonomic revision.
Explaining the causes of the zoogeographic transition around the Isthmus of Kra: using bats as a case study
Aim The causes of a zoogeographic divide in peninsular Thailand around the Isthmus of Kra have not been adequately resolved. We explored climatic, historical and geological perspectives to gain
Indochinese‐Sundaic faunal transition and phylogeographical divides north of the Isthmus of Kra in Southeast Asian Bulbuls (Aves: Pycnonotidae)
TLDR
A mitochondrial marker was used to test the predicted location of intraspecific north–south divides for four species of bulbuls (Pycnonotus) and Phylogenetic relationships among Thai‐Malay populations and their closest relatives from the Greater Sundas were reconstructed.
The biogeography of the Isthmus of Kra region: a review
TLDR
This review examines the evidence for a significant biogeographic divide on the Thai–Malay Peninsula of mainland southeast Asia associated with the Isthmus of Kra and discusses some exemplar distributional patterns.
Cryptic diversity in Cyornis (Aves: Muscicapidae) jungle-flycatchers flagged by simple bioacoustic approaches
Despite the ongoing taxonomic revolution incorporating multiple species delimitation methods, knowledge gaps persist in the taxonomy of comparatively well-studied animal groups such as birds. Morph
Distributions of mammals in Southeast Asia: The role of the legacy of climate and species body mass
Current species distributions are shaped by present and past biotic and abiotic factors. Here, we assessed whether abiotic factors (habitat availability) in combination with past connectivity and a
Horizontal and elevational phylogeographic patterns of Himalayan and Southeast Asian forest passerines (Aves: Passeriformes)
TLDR
This work estimates timings of lineage splits among close relatives from the north Palaearctic, the Sino‐Himalayan mountain forests and from adjacent Southeast Asia, and compares phylogeographic affinities and timing of radiation among members of avian communities from different elevational belts.
A sibling species of Aenictus dentatus FOREL, 1911 (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) from continental Southeast Asia
A new s pecies of army ant, closely related to Aenictus dentatus FOREL, 1911, is described and illustrated based on the worker caste under the name Aenictus paradentatus JAITRONG & YAMANE sp.n. This

TLDR
This work investigated the geographical extent of the savannah vegetation and the positions of the refugia, using a combination of palynonlogical, geological, fossil and termite data to show that during the Last Glacial Maximum, most of Thailand, Peninsula Malaysia, western and southern Borneo, eastern and southern Sumatra, and Java were probably covered by savannah.
