Whether the Pleistocene has had a disproportionate impact on the recent diversification of temperate species, or played a lesser role in a more protracted process, has been a prominent evolutionary debate for the past decade. We used cytochrome b sequences to reconstruct the evolutionary histories of two widely co-distributed, and ecologically divergent frogs (Rana catesbeiana and Pseudacris crucifer) to examine the role of the Pleistocene in structuring these species. Results for R… Expand
Postglacial range expansion from northern refugia by the wood frog, Rana sylvatica
TLDR
Clustering analyses based on morphology further support a distinction between eastern and western wood frogs and suggest that postglacial migration has played an important role in generating broad‐scale patterns of phenotypic variation in this species. Expand
Phylogeography of Diadophis punctatus: extensive lineage diversity and repeated patterns of historical demography in a trans-continental snake.
TLDR
Coalescent and non-coalescent demographic analyses indicate that independent lineages currently occupying previously glaciated or unsuitable areas in eastern, central and western US underwent post-glacial population expansion likely from southern refugia during the late Pleistocene/early Holocene, and southern lineages display patterns consistent with long-term population stability. Expand
Phylogeography and Demographic History of Chinese Black-Spotted Frog Populations (Pelophylax nigromaculata): Evidence for Independent Refugia Expansion and Secondary Contact
TLDR
Nested clade phylogeographical and population demographic analyses indicate that the current distribution of P. nigromaculata is the result of range expansion from two independent refugia during the last interglacial period in late Pleistocene, and is consistent with the presence of a refugium in the Korean Peninsula. Expand
Range-wide phylogeography of a temperate lizard, the five-lined skink (Eumeces fasciatus).
TLDR
Analysis of population structure using nuclear microsatellite data within the five-lined skink suggests the importance of glacial dynamics in shaping more recent genetic structuring within one widely distributed lineage that ranges from the Mississippi River to the Atlantic Ocean in longitude and from southern Ontario to the Gulf of Mexico in latitude. Expand
Incongruence in the pattern and timing of intra-specific diversification in bronze frogs and bullfrogs (Ranidae).
TLDR
Although both species have undergone range expansion and population growth, coalescent reconstruction of N(e) reflects larger lineages but more recent divergence in R. clamitans relative to R. catesbeiana, reflecting significant differences in population history or divergent patterns of molecular evolution at mtDNA.

Patterns and processes of speciation in North American chorus frogs (Pseudacris)
TLDR
Parsimony, maximum likelihood, and Bayesian phylogenies are consistent and reveal four strongly supported clades within Pseudacris: 1) A West Coast Clade containing regilla and cadaverina, 2) a Fat Frog Clade including ornata, streckeri, and illinoensis, 3) a Crucifer Clade consisting of crucifer and ocularis, and 4) a Trilling Frog Clades containing all other PseudACris. Expand
Phylogeographic analyses of the southern leopard frog: the impact of geography and climate on the distribution of genetic lineages vs. subspecies
TLDR
Climate breaks are consistent with the geographic distribution of the subspecies of R. sphenocephala, suggesting that environmental pressures may be driving divergence in morphological traits that outpaces molecular evolution. Expand
Out of Florida: mtDNA reveals patterns of migration and Pleistocene range expansion of the Green Anole lizard (Anolis carolinensis)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of mitochondrial DNA sequence data support the previous hypothesis of a western Cuban origin of the species and find five well-supported, geographically distinct mitochondrial haplotype clades throughout the southeastern United States. Expand
Phylogeography of two Andean frogs: Test of vicariance versus elevational gradient models of diversification
TLDR
This research used phylogeographic and coalescent analyses of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequence data to compare genetic diversity and evolutionary history of two frog species across their shared range in northwestern Argentina, and supports the vicariance model over the elevational gradient model. Expand
Contact zone dynamics during early stages of speciation in a chorus frog (Pseudacris crucifer)
TLDR
The spring peeper is a widespread Nearctic chorus frog with six divergent mitochondrial DNA lineages, many of which came into secondary contact during the Holocene, and genetics, morphology, advertisement calls and female preference for two lineages that now overlap in southwestern Ontario, Canada are examined.

Cryptic lineages in a small frog: the post-glacial history of the spring peeper, Pseudacris crucifer (Anura: Hylidae).
TLDR
The spring peeper (Pseudacris crucifer) is believed to have been a primary herpetological invader of eastern North America following the most recent period of glacial retreat, and whether the distribution of haplotypic variants reflect post-Pleistocene recolonization dynamics is examined. Expand
HISTORICAL ISOLATION, RANGE EXPANSION, AND SECONDARY CONTACT OF TWO HIGHLY DIVERGENT MITOCHONDRIAL LINEAGES IN SPOTTED SALAMANDERS (AMBYSTOMA MACULATUM)
TLDR
The evolutionary history of spotted salamander populations underscores the generality of biogeographical processes in eastern North America: despite differences in population size, glacial refugia, and vagility, similar signatures of differentiation are evident among and within widespread taxa. Expand
Phylogenetics, zoogeography, and the role of dispersal and vicariance in the evolution of the Rana catesbeiana (Anura: Ranidae) species group
TLDR
Dispersal–vicariance analysis suggested a Coastal Plain biogeographical region origin of the Rana catesbeiana species group, supporting the notion that the region was an important centre of anuran diversification, with post-speciation dispersal playing a major role in explaining the distribution of the widespread species. Expand
Intraspecific phylogeography of Percina evides (Percidae: Etheostomatinae): an additional test of the Central Highlands pre‐Pleistocene vicariance hypothesis
TLDR
Pleistocene vicariance hypothesis is tested with a phylogeographic analysis of the percid species Percina evides, which is widely distributed in several disjunct areas of the Central Highlands, and recovery of very limited mitochondrial DNA polymorphism and lack of phyloGEographic structuring support a hypothesis of dispersal during or following the Pleistocene. Expand
Phylogeography of the Northern short‐tailed shrew, Blarina brevicauda (Insectivora: Soricidae): past fragmentation and postglacial recolonization
TLDR
The present distribution of B. brevicauda is best explained by past fragmentation and range expansion events during and following the Pleistocene glacial cycles, which suggest recent expansion or diversification within each group. Expand
EVIDENCE FOR MULTIPLE PLEISTOCENE REFUGIA IN THE POSTGLACIAL EXPANSION OF THE EASTERN TIGER SALAMANDER, AMBYSTOMA TIGRINUM TIGRINUM
TLDR
It is suggested that disjunct mountain populations of Coastal Plain species may have existed in situ throughout the Pleistocene in Appalachian refugia, and are not of recent origin, but rather exist as relicts of a warmer, more widespread fauna and flora that is now restricted to the Coastal Plain. Expand
Climatic oscillations triggered post-Messinian speciation of Western Palearctic brown frogs (Amphibia, Ranidae).
TLDR
It is concluded that drastic climatic changes followed by successive temperature oscillations "trapped" most brown frog species in their southern European glacial refugia with enough time to speciate and that substantial dispersal was only possible during extensive interglacial periods of a constant subtropical climate.

Pleistocene effects on North American songbird evolution
  • J. Klicka, R. Zink
  • Biology
  • Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series B: Biological Sciences
  • 1999
TLDR
The study used the average interphylogroup mtDNA distance, calibrated at 2% per million years, to conclude that speciation required on average one million years to complete, which means speciation events begun in the Late Pliocene would have been completed in the mid– to late Pleistocene. Expand
Pleistocene phylogeographic effects on avian populations and the speciation process
  • J. Avise, D. Walker
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series B: Biological Sciences
  • 1998
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.

EVOLUTIONARY RELATIONSHIPS WITHIN THE ENSATINA ESCHSCHOLTZII COMPLEX CONFIRM THE RING SPECIES INTERPRETATION
TLDR
Division of this complex into separate species on the basis of the observed patterns of monophyly for mitochondrial DNA is unwarranted because further sampling could reveal additional instances of paraphyly across subspecies and, more generally, because mtDNA alone should not be used to infer species boundaries.
