PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Integrative taxonomy of Australian monsoonal herpetofauna

We propose to undertake detailed systematic studies of several herpetological taxa for which existing genetic data suggest a significant number of unrecognised species, especially in the monsoonal tropics. This study will confirm current taxonomic status and describe new species in the:
