I investigate the systematics, distribution and range limitations of amphibians and reptiles based on molecular data.
Ecological Niche Modelling
I am interested effect of climatic change on distribution of species using species distribution modelling and also I use data that combines both phylogeny and local environmental conditions.
I examine age structure, life-history, effects of latitude and altitude, relationship between age and body size (SVL) in both amphibians and reptiles using skeletochronology method.
Cross-sections (18 μm) at the diaphysis level of a phalanx of Apathya cappadocica individual (m.c. = marrow cavity, e.b. = endosteal bone, r.l. = resorption line). The LAGs are indicated by black arrows.
