Recent work in collaboration with Adam Leache, Caleb Ofori-Boateng, and Matt Fujita is out in Evolution on the comparative phylogeography of a diverse set of reptiles and amphibians from West Africa. We used computational methods developed in the Phyletica Lab to infer the temporal distribution of divergences among 20 species across the Dahomey Gap. We found a lot of variation in divergence times, suggesting that species responded differently to past aridification across West Africa.
