Furthermore, it is noteworthy to mention here that Coluber bholanathi and Coluber gracilis (Gunther, 1862), an allopatric congener, both share some scalation and coloration characters in common, except dorsal scale row count --19:19:12-15 (fide Gupta et al.
He follows with description of neural-developmental premises of evolutionary adaptation, including evolution and stress responses and behavioral adaptation to changes in environment, ontogeny, and intragenerational developmental plasticity; epigenetics of circumevolutionary phenomena and the mechanism of evolutionary change, including transgenerational developmental plasticity and the evolution of metazoans and their control system; and the origins of evolutionary novelty, evolution by loss or by reverting to ancestral characters, neural crest-determined evolutionary novelties, evolutionary convergences, species and allopatric speciation, and sympatric speciation.
Within these regions, the potential importance of Pleistocene refugia in promoting allopatric differentiation has been considered (Lehman & Fleagle 2006), but at least for eastern chimpanzees there is little correlation between posited forest refugia and present-day diversity (Goldberg 1998).
