African duikers in the subfamily Cephalophinae (genera Cephalophus, Philantomba and Sylvicapra) constitute an important target for DNA barcoding efforts because of their importance to the bushmeat trade and protection under the Convention for International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). Duikers also make a challenging test case of barcoding methods due to their recent diversification, substantial intra-specific genetic variation and high species richness. However, no study to date has…

Differentiation at mitochondrial and nuclear loci between the blesbok (Damaliscus pygargusphillipsi) and bontebok (D. p.pygargus): implications for conservation strategy
TLDR
The data indicate that the classification of alpha taxonomy should be reconsidered in this genus (in support of earlier similar suggestions), and that careful management should seek to avoid hybridization and retain the remaining diversity in the bontebok.
A multi-locus species phylogeny of African forest duikers in the subfamily Cephalophinae: evidence for a recent radiation in the Pleistocene
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analyses suggest that Pleistocene-era climatic oscillations have played an important role in the speciation of this largely forest-dwelling group and reveal the most well supported species phylogeny for the subfamily to date, but also highlight several areas of inconsistency.
Mitochondrial divergence suggests unexpected high species diversity in the opsariichthine fishes (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) and the revalidation of Opsariichthys macrolepis
TLDR
Based on the molecular data and morphological characteristics, Opsariichthys macrolepis is proposed as a valid species and its morphological diagnostic characters are described.
Phylogeography of the heavily poached African common pangolin (Pholidota, Manis tricuspis) reveals six cryptic lineages as traceable signatures of Pleistocene diversification
TLDR
The existence of six cryptic lineages within African common pangolins, which might be of major relevance for future conservation strategies are concluded.
Using historical genome‐wide DNA to unravel the confused taxonomy in a songbird lineage that is extinct in the wild
TLDR
This study demonstrates that the use of historical DNA can be instrumental in delimiting species in situations of taxonomic uncertainty, especially when modern admixture may obfuscate species boundaries.
Genetic Patterns in Forest Antelope Populations in the Udzungwa Mountains, Tanzania, as Inferred from Non-Invasive Sampling
TLDR
The results demonstrate the value of non-invasive genetic sampling in studying the distribution and evolution of rarely observed species in the Udzungwa Mountains, Tanzania.
Noninvasive genetic analysis for assessing the abundance of duiker species among habitats in the tropical forest of Moukalaba, Gabon
TLDR
The dung abundance of Ogilby’s and bay duiker was affected by human impacts, while that of yellow-backed duikers was not affected byHuman impacts, and the difference in human impacts among duiker species should be considered for their conservation management.
Can molecular data validate morphometric identification of faecal pellets in Tanzanian forest antelope species?
TLDR
Overall, morphometric assignment of dung piles to species was not accurate enough to validate dung counts as a survey method for forest antelope although the results do not preclude the development of alternative field identification methods using additional non-molecular characters.
Where is the game? Wild meat products authentication in South Africa: a case study
TLDR
The reliability of commercial labeling of game meat in South Africa is very poor and the Kimura-2-parameter intra- and interspecific variation was evaluated for all matched species, suggesting distance would be a poor indicator for identification of African ungulates species.
Evolutionary Relationships Among Duiker Antelope (Bovidae: Cephalophinae)
TLDR
This document summarizes current capabilities, research and operational priorities, and plans for further studies that were established at the 2015 USGS workshop on quantitative hazard assessments of earthquake-triggered landsliding and liquefaction in the Central American region.

TLDR
DNA barcodes are a practical means for rapid species assignment, although efficient analytical methods will likely require a two-tiered approach to differentiate closely related pairs of species.

TLDR
Of the methods examined, tree‐based analyses built on a geographically comprehensive database of control region sequences was the best means of reliably recovering species identity from central African duikers.

TLDR
Closely related sister species of birds can be identified reliably by barcodes of fixed diagnostic substitutions in COI sequences, verifying coalescent-based statistical tests of reciprocal monophyly for taxonomic distinctiveness and identifying recently separated lineages that represent putative species.

TLDR

TLDR
It is argued that duiker speciation has been driven predominantly by habitat fragmentation which probably led to the disruption of gene flow between geographic populations.

TLDR
It is established that the mitochondrial gene cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) can serve as the core of a global bioidentification system for animals and will provide a reliable, cost–effective and accessible solution to the current problem of species identification.
