We use data from external morphology and mitochondrial gene sequences to provide the basis for a taxonomic revision of two polytypic, pentadactyl Philippine species of scincid lizards of the genus Brachymeles . Although previous studies have noted significant morphological variation among island...
We review the taxonomic status of Philippine bent-toed geckos previously referred to Cyrtodactylus agusanensis . We delineate four evolutionary lineages within the C. agusanensis complex from the southeastern islands of the archipelago and describe three of these lineages as new species. The new...
The endangered iguana Cyclura cornuta stejnegeri is endemic to Mona Island, Puerto Rico. Factors accounting for its protected status include low adult densities and relatively low abundance of juveniles. We studied the spatial ecology, territoriality, and philopatric behavior along a gradient of...
Cnemidophorus nigricolor consists of at least three species rather than a single taxon distributed throughout the Venezuelan Caribbean islands. We describe two new species, one from Isla La Blanquilla and another from Isla La Tortuga. Both species were previously confused with C. nigricolor. The...
We revised the taxonomic status of Atractus species occurring in the eastern slopes of Central Cordillera, Magdalena Valley, and west slopes of Eastern Cordillera of Colombia on the basis of morphological characters (meristics, morphometrics, color patterns, and hemipenes). A lectotype is...
We studied the population biology of Sonora mud turtles ( Kinosternon sonoriense ) for 10 yr in an extremely hot and dry desert stream habitat in central Arizona. Adults made up 34.4% of the population. Modeling with Program MARK indicated that both age class (adult vs. juvenile-hatchling) and...
