Beyond the Mediterranean peninsulas: evidence of central European glacial refugia for a temperate forest mammal species, the bank vole (Clethrionomys glareolus)
A complex phylogeographic history for a forest species in Europe which is sufficiently adaptable that, facing climate change, survives in relict southern and northern habitats is demonstrated.
Evolutionary history of the most speciose mammals: molecular phylogeny of muroid rodents.
Phylogenetic relationships between 32 species of rodents representing 14 subfam families of Muridae and four subfamilies of Dipodidae were studied using sequences of the nuclear protein-coding genes Lecithin Cholesterol Acyl Transferase (LCAT) and von Willebrand Factor (vWF), confirming the monophyly of almost all studied subfam Families.

A statistical model with a double original advantage that incorporates information about the spatial distribution of the samples, with the aim to increase inference power and to relate more explicitly observed patterns to geography, which allows one to analyze genetic and phenotypic data within a unified model and inference framework.
Phylogeny of the genus Apodemus with a special emphasis on the subgenus Sylvaemus using the nuclear IRBP gene and two mitochondrial markers: cytochrome b and 12S rRNA.
Revisiting the taxonomy of the Rattini tribe: a phylogeny-based delimitation of species boundaries
This study explores and highlights the limits of the current taxonomy of the Rattini tribe, one of the most difficult groups of mammals, and lays the foundations to better investigate rodent-born diseases in South East Asia.

The authors' analyses indicate a higher genetic variability of woodmice in the Mediterranean peninsulas compared to northern Europe, suggesting a role of the former as refuge regions for this small mammal.
Molecular phylogeny of the Cricetinae subfamily based on the mitochondrial cytochrome b and 12S rRNA genes and the nuclear vWF gene.

There is clear evidence for gene flow out of the Carpathians, demonstrating the contribution of theCarpathian population to the colonization of Europe after the Pleistocene, and the clearest phylogeographic evidence to date of a northern glacial refugium for temperate species in Europe.

This study compares the continental phylogeographic patterns of two wild European species linked by a host–parasite relationship: the field mouse Apodemus sylvaticus and one of its specific parasites, the nematode Heligmosomoides polygyrus, and shows how incorporating phyloGeographic information of an obligate associate can help to better understand the phylo Geographical pattern of its host.
Rise of oceanographic barriers in continuous populations of a cetacean: the genetic structure of harbour porpoises in Old World waters
This work applies a combination of recent individual-based landscape genetic approaches to investigate the population genetic structure of a highly mobile extensive range cetacean, the harbour porpoise in the eastern North Atlantic, with regards to oceanographic characteristics that could constrain its dispersal.
