TLDR
A history of Molecular Phylogenetics and applications of individuality and Parentage, issues of Heterozygosity, and special Approaches to Phylageny Estimation are reviewed.
Intraspecific Phylogeography: The Mitochondrial DNA Bridge Between Population Genetics and Systematics
TLDR
This poster presents a probabilistic procedure to characterize the response of the immune system to E.coli bacteria and shows clear patterns in response to the presence of E. coli.
Phylogeography: The History and Formation of Species
TLDR
This chapter discusses the history and Purview of Phylogeography, Genealogical Concordance, and Speciation Processes and Extended Genealogy Works and its applications to Speciation and Beyond.
Microsatellite null alleles in parentage analysis
TLDR
Microsatellite null alleles in frequencies typically reported in the literature introduce rather inconsequential biases on average exclusion probabilities, but can introduce substantial errors into empirical assessments of specific mating events by leading to high frequencies of false parentage exclusions.

TLDR
There is rather poor equivalency of taxonomic rank across some of the vertebrates, by the yardstick of genetic divergence in this mtDNA gene, as well as genetic distances in allozymes.
Speciation durations and Pleistocene effects on vertebrate phylogeography
TLDR
Comparisons of genetic–distance trends across the vertebrate classes reveal that for mammals and birds, Pleistocene conditions played an important role in initiating phylogeographic differentiation among now–extant conspecific populations as well as in further sculpting pre–existing phylo geographic variety into many of today's sister species.
Phylogeography: retrospect and prospect
TLDR
This paper summarizes the many achievements and novel perspectives that phylogeography has brought to population genetics, phylogenetic biology and biogeography, and addresses future directions for the field.
Molecular population structure and the biogeographic history of a regional fauna : a case history with lessons for conservation biology

TLDR
These concordant phylogeographic patterns among independently evolving species provide evidence of similar vicariant histories of population separation, and can be related tentatively to episodic changes in environmental conditions during the Pleistocene.
Pleistocene phylogeographic effects on avian populations and the speciation process
TLDR
When avian speciation is viewed properly as an extended temporal process rather than as a point event, Pleistocene conditions appear to have played an active role both in initiating major phylogeographic separations within species, and in completing speciations that had been inaugurated earlier.
Mitochondrial DNA evolution at a turtle's pace: evidence for low genetic variability and reduced microevolutionary rate in the Testudines.
TLDR
Evidence is compiled suggesting a slowdown in mean microevolutionary rate for turtle mitochondrial DNA, and consistency in the direction of the inferred pattern suggests the need for caution in acceptance of a universal mtDNA-clock calibration for higher animals.
