Molecular Taxonomy and the Conservation of the Red Wolf and Other Endangered Carnivores
TLDR
It is probable that, a medida that molecular technology is refined in its ability to resolve taxonomic histories and uncertainties, it is likely that hybridization event(s) will be recognized in more species, and may be of particular importance for large carnivores, whose small population sizes make them susceptible to hybridization episodes with closely related, sympatric species.

Pleistocene origins, western ghost lineages, and the emerging phylogeographic history of the red wolf and coyote
TLDR
Findings indicate that the red wolf pre-dated not only European colonization but human, and possibly coyote, presence in North America . Expand
Genome-wide local ancestries discriminate homoploid hybrid speciation from secondary introgression in the red wolf (Canidae: Canis rufus)
TLDR
This work examined how interactions between recombination and gene flow shaped the phylogenomic landscape of red wolf to create non-random retention of introgressed ancestry to reconcile conflicting hypotheses regarding the impact of hybridization on evolution of North American canids. Expand
Diversity, distribution and conservation of the terrestrial reptiles of Oman (Sauropsida, Squamata)
TLDR
The results indicate that the sampling effort is not only remarkable from a taxonomic point of view, with multiple observations for most species, but also for the spatial coverage achieved, and that large areas of the climatic space of Oman lie outside protected areas and that seven of the 20 climatic clusters are not protected at all.

Predictive Modelling of the Distribution and Evaluation of the Conservation Status with a Taxonomic Clarification of Macromitrium fortunatii Thér. (Orthotrichaceae, Bryophyta) in China and Adjacent Regions
Abstract Macromitrium fortunatii Thér. was included in the first Red List of Chinese endangered bryophytes, but later its inclusion was considered as uncertain because of taxonomic uncertainty andExpand
Unpacking the species conundrum: philosophy, practice and a way forward
TLDR
It is argued that while generalized frameworks may work well for concepts of what species are, plurality and ‘inclusive’ probabilistic approaches may work best for delimitation. Expand
Factors influencing red wolf–coyote hybridization in eastern North Carolina, USA
TLDR
It is suggested that disruption of stable breeding pairs of red wolves facilitates hybridization, jeopardizing future recovery of the red wolf and indicating the importance of behavioral forces, especially social stability, in regulating hybridization. Expand
APPLICATIONS AND IMPLICATIONS OF PHYLOGEOGRAPHY FOR CANID CONSERVATION
TLDR
It is shown that large-sized canids have demonstrated to have enough physiological and behavioural plasticity to survive in open habitats, while smaller species that depend on closed habitats are more susceptible to fragmentation. Expand
Red Wolf (Canis rufus) Recovery: A Review with Suggestions for Future Research
TLDR
Although restoration efforts have established a population of approximately 70–80 red wolves in the wild, issues of hybridization with coyotes, inbreeding, and human-caused mortality continue to hamper red wolf recovery. Expand
TAXONOMIC STATUS AND GENETIC STRUCTURE OF SPECKLED CHUBS (CYPRINIDAE: CF. MACRHYBOPSIS AESl1VALlS) IN THE ARKANSAS RIVER DRAINAGE
A recent study recognized two distinct morphological types of speckled chub (cf Macrhybopsis aestivalis) in the Arkansas River drainage. The purpose of this study was to use protein electrophoresisExpand

Mitochondrial DNA analysis implying extensive hybridization of the endangered red wolf Canis rufus
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis indicates that red wolves have either a grey wolf or coyote mtDNA genotype, demonstrating hybridization among these species, and does not argue against the continued protection of the red wolf. Expand
Carnivore Behavior, Ecology, and Evolution
TLDR
This book discusses the role of Odor in the Social Lives of Carnivores, the Phylogeny of the Recent Carnivora, and the Physiology and Evolution of Delayed Implantation in Carnivors. Expand
