The Indian subcontinent has a unique geological history. Its unique history in conjunction with the topological and climatic heterogeneity has resulted in incredible biotic diversity. In this talk, I focus on lizards of the family Scincidae (commonly known as skinks) as a model system and provide a synthesis of studies that unravel their biogeographic patterns in the Indian subcontinent. As a part of this synthesis, I also highlight some of the studies from my lab at NISER Bhubaneswar ( that have contributed to our understanding of Indian skink biogeography.
