Patterns and models of karyotypic evolution in turtles are reviewed and discussed. OVER the past 10 years knowledge of turtle karyology has grown to such an extent that the order Testudines is one of the better known groups of lower vertebrates (Bickham, ). Nondifferentially stained karyotypes are known for 55% of cryptodiran turtle species.
Instead, turtles are shown to be the sister‐group of Sauropterygia, the two clades being nested within Sauria as sister‐group of Lepidosauriformes. This scenario is also supported by several developmental and soft tissue characters which are shown to be congruent with the current by: This category of vulture and the "New World Vultures" in the Americas have acquired similar traits via convergent evolution. Bearded Vultures belong to the subfamily Gypaetinae, which is a group that occurs rather early in the phylogentic tree of the Acciptridae family. All of this, however, is just the general phylogeny of the Bearded Vulture.

Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts then people will find new. Here we report on the first discovery of shelled eggs inside the body cavity of a fossil turtle and on an isolated egg clutch, both referable to the Cretaceous turtle discoveries provide a unique opportunity to gain insight into the reproductive traits of an extinct turtle and to understand the evolution of such traits among living by:

The position of turtles among amniotes remains in dispute, with morphological and molecular comparisons giving different results.
Morphological analyses align turtles with either lizards and their relatives, or at the base of the reptile tree, whereas molecular analyses, including a recent study by Chiari et al. in BMC Biology, place turtles with birds and by: Ferreira – Patterns of morphological evolution in the skull of turtles ii Acknowledgements I am very grateful to my supervisor Max Langer, who offered me a space in his lab for the past ten years and immensily contributed to shape my career path until now.
Here, we use sequence data collected from thousands of ultraconserved elements (UCEs; sensu Faircloth et al., ) to infer a genome-scale phylogeny of turtles.
We use this phylogeny to assess and update the phylogenetic nomenclature and to compare the evolutionary relationships of turtles to broad temporal and spatial patterns from the fossil Cited by: The turtle family Kinosternidae comprises 25 living species of mud and musk turtles confined to the New World.

Molecular data used to address this major evolutionary question have so far been limited to a handful of markers and/or taxa.

Herpetol. Monogr. 5: A combined phylogenetic analysis of molecular and morphological data for 23 genera of living turtles and seven key fossil taxa (Shaffer, Meylan and McKnight, ) corroborates much of the hypothesis of higher relationships suggested by studies of morphological data alone, but also leads to some serious questions about relationships within the side-neck family, Chelidae and about the higher relationships among the living families of hidden-necked (cryptodiran.

That analysis sug-gested that neural bone patterns are highly susceptible to homoplasy, and that they are not good phylogenetic indicators unless in-corporated in the context of a larger char-acter set in which other characters can be.
This chapter traces the history of the debate on the evolution of the turtle shell, and carries the analysis of the origin of the turtle carapace forward from two complementary perspectives, viz.
paleontology and developmental biology. Two alternative approaches to morphological analysis—the transformationist and the emergentist—are by: nae), known as mud or musk turtles, which inhabit semiaquatic environments from Canada to South America (Ernst and Barbour, ; Bonin et al., ).
The subfamily Kinosterninae is represented by Kinosternon, which is composed of at least twenty different species and many subspecies (Bonin et al., ).
Only three species of Kinosternon inhabit.Bour and Dubois (c) discuss the history of the family name. All Mexican forms reviewed by Smith and Smith (). Phylogenetic relationships based on protein variation are discussed by Seidel et al. (); those based on neural bone patterns by Iverson (); and those based on morphology by Iverson () and Hutchison ().
