Sudden expansion of a single brown bear maternal lineage across northern continental Eurasia after the last ice age: a general demographic model for mammals?
The brown bear has proved a useful model for studying Late Quaternary mammalian phylogeography. However, information is lacking from northern continental Eurasia, which constitutes a large part ofExpand

Mitogenetic structure of brown bears (Ursus arctos L.) in northeastern Europe and a new time frame for the formation of European brown bear lineages
We estimated the phylogenetic relationships of brown bear maternal haplotypes from countries of northeastern Europe (Estonia, Finland and European Russia), using sequences of mitochondrial DNAExpand

Genetic structure in large, continuous mammal populations: the example of brown bears in northwestern Eurasia
Knowledge of population structure and genetic diversity and the spatio‐temporal demographic processes affecting populations is crucial for effective wildlife preservation, yet these factors are stillExpand

Nuclear and mitochondrial genetic structure in the Eurasian beaver (Castor fiber) – implications for future reintroductions
Many reintroduction projects for conservation fail, and there are a large number of factors that may contribute to failure. Genetic analysis can be used to help stack the odds of a reintroduction inExpand

GENETIC VARIATION AND POPULATION STRUCTURE OF THE EURASIAN BEAVER CASTOR FIBER IN EASTERN EUROPE AND ASIA
Abstract The Eurasian beaver, Castor fiber L., suffered extreme demographic reduction through overhunting until the end of the 19th century. However, active protection measures have led to a powerfulExpand

Complete mitochondrial genomes and a novel spatial genetic method reveal cryptic phylogeographical structure and migration patterns among brown bears in north-western Eurasia
Aim Using sequences of complete mitochondrial genomes, our aims were: (1) to investigate the matrilineal phylogeographical structure, migration patterns and lineage coalescence times in a large,Expand

Long-Range Gene Flow and the Effects of Climatic and Ecological Factors on Genetic Structuring in a Large, Solitary Carnivore: The Eurasian Lynx
Due to their high mobility, large terrestrial predators are potentially capable of maintaining high connectivity, and therefore low genetic differentiation among populations. However, previousExpand

Phylogeographic Sympatry and Isolation of the Eurasian Badgers (Meles, Mustelidae, Carnivora): Implications for an Alternative Analysis using Maternally as Well as Paternally Inherited Genes
In the present study, to further understand the phylogenetic relationships among the Eurasian badgers (Meles, Mustelidae, Carnivora), which are distributed widely in the Palearctic, partial sequencesExpand

Mitochondrial genetic diversity and phylogenetic relationships of Siberian flying squirrel (Pteromys volans) populations
Abstract Siberian flying squirrel, an endangered species in South Korea, is distributed through major mountain regions of South Korea. The number of Siberian flying squirrel (Pteromys volans) inExpand

Fur mites of the genus Schizocarpus Trouessart (Acari: Chirodiscidae) from the Eurasian beaver Castor fiber tuvinicus Lavrov (Rodentia: Castoridae) in the Azas River (Tuva Republic, Russia)
Sixteen species of the genus Schizocarpus Trouessart, 1896 (Acari: Chirodiscidae) are recorded from six live individualsof the Eurasian beaver Castor fiber tuvinicus Lavrov (Rodentia: Castoridae)Expand
