Large-scale DNA barcoding provides a new technique for species
identification and evaluation of relationships across various levels
(populations and species) and may reveal fundamental processes in recently

It is widely recognized that we are entering an extinction event on a scale approaching the mass extinctions seen in the
fossil record. Present-day rates of extinction are estimated to be several orders of magnitude greater ...

Combretum stylesii O.Maurin, Jordaan & A.E.van Wyk, a liana or slender tree with scrambling branches from the Tugela River Valley
(KwaZulu-Natal), South Africa, is described. Molecular data supports its placement in ...

AIM : Although existing bioregional classification schemes often consider the
compositional affinities within regional biotas, they do not typically incorporate
phylogenetic information explicitly. Because phylogeny ...

1. The origin of fire-adapted lineages is a long-standing question in ecology.
Although phylogeny can provide a significant contribution to the ongoing debate,
its use has been precluded by the lack of comprehensive DNA ...

Savannas first began to spread across Africa during the Miocene. A major hypothesis for
explaining this vegetation change is the increase in C4 grasses, promoting fire. We
investigated whether mammals could also have ...
