Abstract

The high diversity and complex distribution of megadiverse faunas have attracted scientific attention since the early stages of biogeography and evolutionary biology. Despite the early progress in documenting global biotic regionalization patterns, megadiverse regions of the globe remain relatively poorly studied, regardless of the urgency in documenting biogeographical patterns in times of rampant biodiversity crisis. Most available data for global biodiversity analyses are based on avian, mammalian and amphibian distributions. Persistent knowledge gaps in global reptilian distribution hamper broader analyses and general conclusions on biogeographical and macroecological patterns within tetrapods. Despite recent advances in mapping squamate faunas within large cis-andean ecoregions, there are no syntheses and broad analyses on diversity and endemism patterns of Neotropical squamates. Thus, general distribution patterns and their underlying evolutionary processes remain poorly investigated in the richest squamate faunas on the planet. The first aim of this project is to map cis-andean squamate species, filling a persistent gap in global biodiversity knowledge. Based on these revised and detailed distributions, we will document and interpret spatial varations in endemism and phylogenetic diversity, testing if these key biogoegraphical patterns are properly represented in the current protected area system. At broader scales, cis-andean squamate megadiversity will be analysed within the context of global reptilian distributions, testing general biogeographical and macroecological patterns within tetrapods.
