New distribution record of Black Softshell Turtle Nilssonia nigricans (Anderson, 1875) from Manas National Park, Assam, India

A new distribution record of the Black Softshell Turtle Nilssonia nigricans is reported from Assam. It was recorded in the protected area of Manas National Park, Baksa district of Assam. A detailed

Phylogeny and phylogeography of chelonians from sub-Saharan Africa—A review of current knowledge in tribute to Margaretha D. Hofmeyr

It is shown that phylogeographic and phylogenetic investigations have led to unexpected findings for Pelomedusa, a putatively wide-ranging monotypic terrapin genus, cryptic diversity was revealed, with more than ten species being uncovered.

The last of the large-sized tortoises of the Mediterranean islands

Archaeological investigations carried out in the cave Zubbio di Cozzo San Pietro, Bagheria, Sicily, revealed the presence of a few skeletal elements of a large-sized tortoise in a funerary area

A lower Pliocene Erymnochelyini turtle (Pleurodira, Podocnemididae) from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The taxon from the Democratic Republic of Congo is analyzed in detail, not only considering current knowledge about the lineage but also incorporating new material into this study, highlighting several partial skulls that corresponds to one of the members of this lineage represented by a greater number of skulls.

Quantifying shell patterning helps identify species of Trionychidae.

Softshell turtles (Trionychidae) display characteristic pits and ridges, or "sculpturing," on the bony carapace. Variation in sculpturing pattern may be useful in classifying fossilized shell

Landscape configurations determining the genetic structure of the Yellow-Spotted Amazon River Turtle (Podocnemis unifilis) in Brazilian Amazonia

Context Waterfalls and rapids of Amazon basin have been suggested as causing the speciation and genetic structure of many freshwater species, including turtles. The species behavior affects the way

Phylogeographic and phenotypic divergence between two subspecies of Testudo graeca (T. g. buxtoni and T. g. zarudnyi) across their contact zone in Iran

Divergence time analysis suggests that the two subspecies of Testudo graeca diverged from one another after the uplifting of the Zagros Mountains during the early Pliocene, and high levels of phylogeographic and phenotypic variation in the contact zone.

Niche diversification of Mediterranean and southwestern Asian tortoises

Evaluated ecological niche models indicated that most species differ in their climate niches, but show overlap, with gradual transitions at range boundaries, and Evaluation of the phylogenetic signal indicated thatClimate niches have been weakly conserved, but sister species also show high evolutionary divergence.

On the Occurrence of the Khorat Snail-Eating Turtle (Malayemys khoratensis) in Lao People's Democratic Republic with Notes on Traditional Ecological Knowledge and Exploitation

Abstract. The Khorat snail-eating turtle (Malayemys khoratensis) is a recently described (2016), poorly studied freshwater turtle known from the Khorat Plateau in Thailand and a small area near

A new subspecies of the Asiatic softshell turtle Amyda ornata (Gray, 1861) from its northern distribution range

We describe a new subspecies of Amyda ornata (Gray, 1861) from the southeastern parts of Bangladesh (Chittagong hill tracts), adjacent regions of north-eastern India (Mizoram, Assam and Tripura) and
