An expanded phylogeny of treefrogs (Hylidae) based on nuclear and mitochondrial sequence data

Wiens, John J.; Kuczynski, Caitlin A.; Hua, Xia; Moen, Daniel S.


The treefrogs (Hylidae) make up one of the most species-rich families of amphibians. With 885 species currently described, they contain >13% of all amphibian species. In recent years, there has been considerable progress in resolving hylid phylogeny. However, the most comprehensive phylogeny to date (Wiens et al., 2006) included only 292 species, was based only on parsimony, provided only poor support for most higher-level relationships, and conflicted with previous hypotheses in several parts...[Show more]
