TLDR
Species belonging to mono- and bispecific genera, as well as island endemic species, were more threatened than the overall percentage of threatened taxa in freshwater turtles and tortoises worldwide. Expand
Threats from wildlife trade: The importance of genetic data in safeguarding the endangered Four-eyed Turtle (Sacalia quadriocellata)
Wildlife trade has been considered one of the largest threats to biodiversity in Southeast Asia. Many vertebrates, such as pangolins, elephants and turtles have been heavily hunted as a result ofExpand

Phylogeny, biogeography and diversification patterns of side-necked turtles (Testudines: Pleurodira)
TLDR
The biogeographic analyses highlight the predominance of both anagenetic and cladogenetic dispersal events and support the importance of transoceanic dispersals as a more common driver of area changes than previously thought, agreeing with previous studies with other non-turtle lineages. Expand
Phylogenetic and spatial distribution of evolutionary diversification, isolation, and threat in turtles and crocodilians (non-avian archosauromorphs)
TLDR
It is found that unlike other terrestrial vertebrate groups, extinction risk increases with evolutionary distinctiveness: a disproportionate amount of phylogenetic diversity is concentrated in evolutionarily isolated, at-risk taxa, particularly those with small geographic ranges. Expand
Turtles of the genera Geoemyda and Pangshura (Testudines: Geoemydidae) lack differentiated sex chromosomes: the end of a 40-year error cascade for Pangshura
TLDR
It is shown that the identification of sex chromosomes in the original report was based on the erroneous pairing of chromosome in the karyogram, causing over decades an error cascade regarding the inferences derived from the putative existence of female heterogamety in geoemydid turtles. Expand
Estimating the phylogeny of geoemydid turtles (Cryptodira) from landmark data: an assessment of different methods
TLDR
This work explores the use of continuous data in the form of 3D coordinates of homologous landmarks on the turtle shell for phylogenetic inference and the phylogenetic placement of single species on a scaffold molecular tree. Expand
Revised Type Locality and Distribution of the Data Deficient Chelodina kuchlingi and a Review of its Status as a Distinct Species

  • 2020
TLDR
A review of documents from the 1960s demonstrates that mix-ups of collection data of various turtle specimens occurred between their collection in the Kimberley in 1965 and 1966 and their accession in the Western Australian Museum 9–24 mo later, considered to represent a valid, Data Deficient species.

The gender of the tortoise genus Chelonoidis Fitzinger, 1835 (Testudines: Testudinidae)
TLDR
The rules of nomenclature dictate that the proper gender of the generic name Chelonoidis Fitzinger, 1835, used for certain tortoises of South America and the giant species of the Galapagos, is masculine, which necessitates changes to the endings of the following specific names. Expand
