Spatial Biodiversity Patterns of Madagascar's Amphibians and Reptiles

Spatial Biodiversity Patterns of Madagascar's Amphibians and Reptiles

Novo artigo. Resumo:

Madagascar has become a model region for testing hypotheses of species diversification and biogeography, and many studies have focused on its diverse and highly endemic herpetofauna. We combine species distribution models of a near-complete set of species of reptiles and amphibians known from the island with body size data and a tabulation of herpetofaunal communities from field surveys to infer and compare biogeographic patterns in these groups.
