Abstract: Coendou vestitus Thomas, 1899, a rodent commonly known as the brown hairy dwarf porcupine, is one of the smallest Neotropical porcupines; its body is covered by three different types of…
The Role of Vicariance and Paleoclimatic Shifts in the Diversification of Uranoscodon superciliosus (Squamata, Tropiduridae) of the Amazonian Floodplains
- Environmental Science, BiologyEvolutionary Biology
This work is one of the first to describe the genetic structure in a widespread taxon along river-edge environments, thus supporting both patterns of diversification with the compartmentalized lineages along different Amazonian rivers (floodplains) and also the more common pattern found in upland forest species, with main rivers acting as vicariant barriers and playing a role in allopatric speciation.

An Annotated Checklist of the Terrestrial Mammals of Los Angeles County Part II: Eulipotyphla, Carnivora, Artiodactyla, and Chiroptera
- Biology, Environmental ScienceBulletin, Southern California Academy of Sciences
An annotated checklist of the terrestrial mammals of Los Angeles County was compiled, based on over 10,000 museum records spanning over 100 years of scientific research, providing an annotated list and abbreviated synonymies for 46 species of terrestrial mammals in the orders Eulipotyphla, Carnivora, Artiodactyla, and Chiroptera.
Mitogenomic phylogenetics and population genetics of several taxa of agouties (Dasyprocta sp., Dasyproctidae, Rodentia): molecular nonexistence of some claimed endemic taxa
- BiologyMammal Research
Some neotropical rodents are of special interest because they are an important source of animal protein for human indigenous populations throughout Latin America. This is the case of the genus…

Neotypification of Catharus ustulatus (Nuttall)
- BiologyBulletin of the British Ornithologists’ Club
It is demonstrated that the original description of Turdus ustulatus Nuttall, 1840, was likely based on a specimen of Catharus guttatus (Pallas, 1811), which is resolved by designating a neotype that stabilises traditional nomenclature.
