Ecological and evolutionary consequences of biotic homogenization.
TLDR
The goal is to initiate future research that investigates the broader conservation implications of homogenization and to promote a proactive style of adaptive management that engages the human component of the anthropogenic blender that is currently mixing the biota on Earth. Expand
HOLARCTIC PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF ARCTIC CHARR (SALVELINUS ALPINUS L.) INFERRED FROM MITOCHONDRIAL DNA SEQUENCES
TLDR
Arctic charr could serve as a model organism to investigate the linkage between historical and contemporary components of phylogeographic structuring in fish, and, with a global perspective of the distribution of genetic variation as a framework, meaningful comparisons of charr studies at a smaller geographic scale will now be possible. Expand
Evolution of rattlesnakes (Viperidae; Crotalus) in the warm deserts of western North America shaped by Neogene vicariance and Quaternary climate change
During Pleistocene, the Laurentide ice sheet rearranged and diversified biotic distributions in eastern North America, yet had minimal physical impact in western North America where lineageExpand
HOLARCTIC PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF ARCTIC CHARR (SALVELINUS ALPINUS L.) INFERRED FROM MITOCHONDRIAL DNA SEQUENCES
TLDR
Arctic charr could serve as a model organism to investigate the linkage between historical and contemporary components of phylogeographic structuring in fish, and, with a global perspective of the distribution of genetic variation as a framework, meaningful comparisons of charr studies at a smaller geographic scale will now be possible.

Do assemblages of Coregonus (Teleostei: Salmoniformes) in the Central Alpine region of Europe represent species flocks?
TLDR
Re reproductively isolated species diverged within lakes, with similar patterns repeatedly emerging among lakes, rejecting the hypothesis that within‐lake morphological and ecological diversity reflects phenotypic plasticity within a single gene pool. Expand
Small Fish in a Large Landscape: Diversification of Rhinichthys osculus (Cyprinidae) in Western North America
TLDR
The map of 112 restriction sites in the mitochondrial DNA genome of the Speckled Dace suggested at least three separate ichthyofaunal invasions of California, as well as a Bonneville Basin fragmented by a north-south connection between southeastern Idaho and the Colorado River. Expand
Microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA assessment of population structure and stocking effects in Arctic charr Salvelinus alpinus (Teleostei: Salmonidae) from central Alpine lakes
TLDR
The results suggest that long‐term stocking practices did not generally alter natural genetic partitioning, and stress the importance of considering genetic diversity of Arctic charr in the Alpine region for sound management, and show the potential usefulness of microsatellite DNAs in addressing evolutionary and conservation issues in this species. Expand
BIODIVERSITY OF CENTRAL ALPINE COREGONUS (SALMONIFORMES): IMPACT OF ONE‐HUNDRED YEARS OF MANAGEMENT
TLDR
Until species descriptions are forthcoming for all forms, the Central Alpine Coregonus lineage should be viewed as an "evolutionarily significant unit" (ESU), and each population a specific "management unit" within that lineage. Expand
Conservation phylogenetics of helodermatid lizards using multiple molecular markers and a supertree approach.
TLDR
The conservation phylogenetic approach emphasizes the origin and diversification of this group, yields information on the manner by which past environmental variance may have impacted its populations and, in turn, allows us to disentangle historic from contemporary impacts that might threaten its long-term persistence.
