    Institut des Sciences de l Evolution, UMR5554 CNRS IRD, Universite Montpellier 2, Montpellier, France
    BMC Biol 10:65. 2012
    ..Genome-scale data have been shown to be useful in resolving other debated phylogenies, but no such adequate dataset is yet available for amniotes...
  2. pmc Phylogeography of Sardinian cave salamanders (genus Hydromantes) is mainly determined by geomorphology
    Ylenia Chiari
    Institut des Sciences de l Evolution, CNRS UMR n 5554, CC 064, Universite Montpellier II, Montpellier, France
    PLoS ONE 7:e32332. 2012
    ..While these salamander species can also occur outside caves, our results indicate that there is a very poor dispersal of these species between separate cave systems...
  3. pmc Morphometrics parallel genetics in a newly discovered and endangered taxon of Galápagos tortoise
    Ylenia Chiari
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and YIBS Molecular Systematics and Conservation Genetics Lab, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 4:e6272. 2009
    ..Because the turtle shell is a complex heritable trait, our results suggest that, for the Cerro Fatal population, non-neutral loci have probably experienced a parallel decrease in variability as that observed for the genetic data...

    J Morphol 272:379-86. 2011
    ..Furthermore, females have a more elongated and wider carapace shape than males. Finally, carapace shape changes with growth, with vertebral scutes becoming narrower and pleural scutes becoming larger during late ontogeny...

    Mol Phylogenet Evol 62:496-507. 2012
    ..Our results revealed that the earliest divergences within crown testudinoids occurred around 95.0 Mya, in the early Late Cretaceous, earlier than previously reported, raising new questions about the historical biogeography of this group...
