An event model for phylogenetic biogeography using explicitly geographical ranges
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2017-10)
Aim: To develop and implement a method for phylogenetic biogeography that is both event based and geographically explicit, that is, that uses the geographical ranges observed in the terminals instead of ‘predefined areas.’. ...
Historical biogeography and cryptic diversity in the Callichthyinae (Siluriformes, Callichthyidae)
The family Callichthyidae, divided into the subfamilies Corydoradinae and Callichthyinae, contains more than 200 species of armoured catfishes distributed throughout the Neotropics, as well as fossil species dating from ...
Advances in and perspectives on evolution in Bromeliaceae
To accompany the 12 manuscripts on Bromeliaceae in this issue, we here present a summary of evolutionary and phylogenetic studies at different levels in the family. We discuss biogeography, speciation and hybridization in ...
Phylogenetic relationships, diversification and biogeography in Neotropical Brotogeris parakeets
Aim We present a molecular phylogenetic analysis of Brotogeris (Psittacidae) using several distinct and complementary approaches: we test the monophyly of the genus, delineate the basal taxa within it, uncover their ...
Multilocus phylogeny and statistical biogeography clarify the evolutionary history of major lineages of turtles
(Academic Press Inc Elsevier Science, 2017-08)
Despite their complex evolutionary history and the rich fossil record, the higher level phylogeny and historical biogeography of living turtles have not been investigated in a comprehensive and statistical framework. To ...
Evolutionary history of Ramphastos toucans: Molecular phylogenetics, temporal diversification, and biogeography
(ACADEMIC PRESS INC ELSEVIER SCIENCE, 2009)
The toucan genus Ramphastos (Piciformes: Ramphastidae) has been a model in the formulation of Neotropical paleobiogeographic hypotheses. Weckstein (2005) reported on the phylogenetic history of this genus based on three ...
