Abstract An apparent instance of hybridization in the wild between Ursus thibetanus and U. malayanus is documented via morphological and genetic comparisons. 
The Case for Holobaraminic Status in Bears (Family Ursidae) and the Implications within a Creation Model of Ecology
TLDR
It is predicted that an understanding of these processes will reveal insights into how the Creator ensured creature persistence in the face of changing environments and the mechanisms involved with rapid ursid diversification in less than 4500 years. Expand
High genetic diversity and distinct ancient lineage of Asiatic black bears revealed by non-invasive surveys in the Annapurna Conservation Area, Nepal
TLDR
It is found that the Asiatic black bear population in the ACA has maintained high levels of genetic diversity as compared to other bear populations from range countries, and a moderate population size is detected, so bear-related conflict should be addressed to ensure the long-term viability of this expanding bear populations. Expand
The evolutionary history of bears is characterized by gene flow across species
TLDR
A genome analysis of the bear family with representatives of all living species shows that gene flow is not limited to closely related species pairs and necessitates shifting the attention from speciation processes achieving genome-wide reproductive isolation to the selective processes that maintain species divergence in the face of gene flow. Expand
The evolutionary history of bears is shaped by gene flow across species
TLDR
A genome analysis of the bear family with representatives of all living species finds strong ancestral gene flow between the Asiatic black bear and the ancestor to polar, brown and American black bear explains numerous uncertainties in reconstructing the bear phylogeny. Expand
Phylogenetic Conflict in Bears Identified by Automated Discovery of Transposable Element Insertions in Low-Coverage Genomes
TLDR
The phylogenomic analyses show that TEs are a major driver of genomic variation in bears and enabled phylogenetic reconstruction of a well-resolved species tree, despite strong signals for incomplete lineage sorting and introgression. Expand
Phylogenetic Conflict in Bears Identified by Automated Discovery of Transposable Element Insertions in Low Coverage Genomes
TLDR
The phylogenomic analyses show that TEs are a major driver of genomic variation in bears and enabled phylogenetic reconstruction of a well-resolved species tree, even with strong signals for incomplete lineage sorting and introgression. Expand
Masticatory adaptations of extant and extinct Ursidae: an assessment using three-dimensional geometric morphometrics
TLDR
It is shown here how to identify the wood of several species common to the Northern Lights using a laser-spot assisted, 3D image analysis. Expand
Epidemiology and pathological progression of erythematous lip lesions in captive sun bears (Helarctos malayanus)
TLDR
The progressively neoplastic nature of this lip lesion syndrome in sun bears which has consequences for captive and re-release management is highlighted, and the detection of Ursid gammaherpesvirus 1 should be considered in pre-release risk analyses, at least until data is available on the prevalence of the virus in wild sun bears.

Phylogeography of brown bears (Ursus arctos) of Alaska and paraphyly within the Ursidae.
TLDR
The mtDNA data support some, but not all, of the currently designated subspecies of brown bears whose descriptions have been based essentially on morphology, and a weak correlation is suggested between types of mtDNA and habitat preference by brown bears in Alaska. Expand
A phylogeny of the bears (Ursidae) inferred from complete sequences of three mitochondrial genes.
TLDR
Calibration of the corrected average number of nucleotide differences per site with the fossil record indicates that transitions at third positions of codons in the ursid cytochrome b gene occur at a rate of approximately 6% per million years, which is considerably slower than comparable values reported for other species of mammal. Expand
Conservation genetics of the fisher (Martes pennanti) based on mitochondrial DNA sequencing
TLDR
The conservation status of the fisher is considered and the potential genetic consequences of past and future translocations on this medium‐sized carnivore are evaluated by examining population variation in mitochondrial control‐region sequences, suggesting British Columbia would be the most appropriate source population.

PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF NORTH AMERICAN URSIDS BASED ON ANALYSIS OF MITOCHONDRIAL DNA
TLDR
Results of restriction fragment analysis of whole mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) as well as sequence descriptions of the cytochrome b genes and the control regions ofmtDNA of American black bears, brown bears, and polar bears are presented to attempt to contribute to a resolution of the phylogenetic relationships of the three taxa.

TLDR
The results based on parsimony analysis show that the giant panda is more closely related to bears than to the lesser panda; the lesserpanda is neither closelyrelated to bears nor to the New World procyonids. Expand

TLDR
The polymerase chain reaction is used to amplify homologous segments of mtDNA from more than 100 animal species, including mammals, birds, amphibians, fishes, and some invertebrates, and the unexpectedly wide taxonomic utility of these primers offers opportunities for phylogenetic and population research.
