The biogeographical boundaries of northern Australia: evidence from ecological niche models and a multi-locus phylogeny of Uperoleia toadlets (Anura: Myobatrachidae)

Catullo, Renee; Lanfear, Robert; Doughty, Paul; Keogh, J Scott


Aim: Our aim was to test hypothesized biogeographical barriers using small-bodied terrestrial Uperoleia frogs, to identify Pleistocene refugia and to define biogeographical units. Location: The Australian Monsoonal Tropics, defined as the open woodlands and savanna north of the inland arid and eastern winter-rainfall zones. Methods: A multi-locus molecular phylogeny of the Uperoleia lithomoda, U. trachyderma and U. minima species complex, with supporting morphological and acoustic data, was...[Show more]
