A detailed picture of the origin of the Australian dingo, obtained from the study of mitochondrial DNA.
To determine the origin and time of arrival to Australia of the dingo, 582 bp of the mtDNA control region were analyzed in 211 Australian dingoes sampled in all states of Australia, 676 dogs from allExpand

Mitochondrial DNA data indicate an introduction through Mainland Southeast Asia for Australian dingoes and Polynesian domestic dogs
In the late stages of the global dispersal of dogs, dingoes appear in the Australian archaeological record 3500 years BP, and dogs were one of three domesticates brought with the colonization ofExpand

Invasive species can't cover their tracks: using microsatellites to assist management of starling (Sturnus vulgaris) populations in Western Australia
Invasive species are known to cause environmental and economic damage, requiring management by control agencies worldwide. These species often become well established in new environments long beforeExpand

Death by sex in an Australian icon: a continent‐wide survey reveals extensive hybridization between dingoes and domestic dogs
Hybridization between domesticated animals and their wild counterparts can disrupt adaptive gene combinations, reduce genetic diversity, extinguish wild populations and change ecosystem function. TheExpand

Assessing the taxonomic status of dingoes Canis familiaris dingo for conservation
1. The conservation status of the dingo Canis familiaris dingo is threatened by hybridization with the domestic dog C. familiaris familiaris. A practical method that can estimate the different levelsExpand

Whole-genome genetic diversity in a sample of Australians with deep Aboriginal ancestry.
Australia was probably settled soon after modern humans left Africa, but details of this ancient migration are not well understood. Debate centers on whether the Pleistocene Sahul continent (composedExpand

Narrow genetic basis for the Australian dingo confirmed through analysis of paternal ancestry
The dingo (Canis lupus dingo) is an iconic animal in the native culture of Australia, but archaeological and molecular records indicate a relatively recent history on the continent. Studies ofExpand
