Mitochondrial DNA phylogeography of the Mesoamerican spiny-tailed lizards (Ctenosaura quinquecarinata complex): Historical biogeography, species status and conservation. Molecular ecology, 14(10), 3095-3107. doi:10.1111/j.1365-294x.2005.02665.x

Through the examination of past and present distributions of plants and animals, historical biogeographers have provided many insights on the dynamics of the massive organismal exchange between North and South America. However, relatively few phyloge...

An extant cichlid fish radiation emerged in an extinct Pleistocene lake (2005)
Journal Article
Joyce, D. A., Lunt, D. H., Bills, R., Turner, G. F., Katongo, C., Duftner, N., …Seehausen, O. (2005). An extant cichlid fish radiation emerged in an extinct Pleistocene lake. Nature, 435(7038), 90-95. doi:10.1038/nature03489

The haplochromine cichlid fish of the East African Great Lakes represent some of the fastest and most species-rich adaptive radiations known(1), but rivers in most of Africa accommodate only a few morphologically similar species of haplochromine cich...
