Freshwater crayfish invasions have been studied around the world, but less so in Africa, a continent devoid of native freshwater crayfish. The present study reviews historical and current information on alien freshwater ...
Genetic diversity and differentiation of the Western Leopard Toad (Sclerophrys pantherina) based on mitochondrial and microsatellite markers
(Taylor & Francis, 2017)
Intraspecific genetic diversity provides the basis for evolutionary change and is therefore considered the most fundamental level of biodiversity. Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and microsatellite loci are the markers most ...
Locomotor performance constrained by morphology and habitat in a diverse clade of African frogs (Anura: Pyxicephalidae)
Understanding how morphology relates to function and how the two change across species in different environments and regions can provide clues to the drivers of speciation and diversity within a clade. Locomotion is a vital ...
