Micryletta inornata is a complex species that is widely distributed from Sumatra to mainland Asia, including the Thai-Malay Peninsula and Indochina. Recently, this species was confirmed to be endemic to regions near the type locality in Sumatra, and the populations from other regions were suggested to be different species. We examined phenotypic and genotypic characters of the Sumatran populations and found an unnamed lineage in addition to the true M. inornata. The newly found lineage can be di...

The Oriental greenfinch, Chloris sinica, is a small seed-eating finch that breeds in the eastern Palearctic region, an area that spans from Russia in the east to China, Korea, and Japan in the south and southwest. Several subspecies have been described based on subtle morphological characteristics, although the taxonomy varies among different authors. Although many ecological studies have been performed, there has been no phylogenetic study that encompasses the species' entire geographical range...

Sexual dimorphism, such as sexual size dimorphism (SSD) and sexually dimorphic exaggerated traits, often evolves via sexual selection. In many species, evolution of sexual dimorphism is thought to be driven by either of the two forms of sexual selection: intra- and inter-sexual selection. In some species, however, intra- and inter-sexual selection act simultaneously on the same sexually dimorphic trait. Therefore, it is important to consider the effects of both forms of sexual selection to fully...

Acotylea is a suborder of Polycladida (Rhabditophora, Platyhelminthes) characterized by lack of a cotyl (sucker-like structure) on the ventral surface of the body. We newly determined partial sequences of two mitochondrial (16S ribosomal RNA and cytochrome c oxidase subunit I) and two nuclear (18S and 28S ribosomal RNA) genes from 24 acotylean species (12 families and 14 genera). Based on these sequences in addition to those available in public databases, we inferred the phylogeny of 16 families...
Successful refueling at staging sites is essential for the survival and reproduction of migratory birds. Understanding their staging ecology is therefore crucial for the conservation of migrant species. Rice fields in the mid-western region of the Korean Peninsula serve as staging habitats for the black-tailed godwit (Limosa limosa). We examined the behavior of staging black-tailed godwits in rice fields located in the East Asian-Australasian Flyway during their northward migration. Specifically...
