We analyzed a concatenated (8492 bp) nuclear-mitochondrial DNA data set from 44 musteloids (including the first genetic data for Lyncodon patagonicus) with parsimony, maximum likelihood, and Bayesian methods of phylogenetic and biogeographic inference and two Bayesian methods of chronological inference. Here we show that Musteloidea emerged approximately 32.4-30.9 million years ago (MYA) in Asia, shortly after the greenhouse-icehouse global climate shift at the Eocene-Oligocene transition… Expand
Phylogeography of subspecies of the sable (Martes zibellina L.) based on mitochondrial genomes: implications for evolutionary history
Phylogeography of the sable is complicated by mass reintroductions that occurred in some areas of Russia from 1940 to 1970. We assessed phylogeny of the sable by sequence analysis of 75 mitogenomeExpand
Post K-Pg diversification of the mammalian order Eulipotyphla as suggested by phylogenomic analyses of ultra-conserved elements.
TLDR
It is concluded that the crown eulipotyphlan lineages arose through a rapid diversification after the K-Pg boundary when novel niches were created by the mass extinction of species. Expand
Mitochondrial genomes reveal the pattern and timing of marten (Martes), wolverine (Gulo), and fisher (Pekania) diversification.
TLDR
This study demonstrates the high informativeness of the mitogenome for phylogenetic inference and divergence time estimation within Guloninae, and suggests that mitogenomes can be highly informative also for other clades at similar levels of evolutionary divergence. Expand
The earliest mustelid in North America
TLDR
The significance of the relatively small size of this new mustelid as it relates to predictions based on increased aridification of the palaeoclimate and the expansion of open habitats in the Oligocene is discussed. Expand
Trophic Segregation of Small Carnivorans (Carnivora: Mustelidae and Mephitidae) from the Southern Cone of South America
TLDR
Evaluating the trophic segregation of small carnivorans from southern South America using a geometric morphometric approach and Canonical Phylogenetic Ordination to study the association between shape, size, diet, and phylogeny found C. chinga as the most hypocarnivorous member of the guild. Expand
Colonization history of the sable Martes zibellina (Mammalia, Carnivora) on the marginal peninsula and islands of northeastern Eurasia
We examined the nucleotide sequences of the mitochondrial NADH dehydrogenase subunit 2 gene (976 base pairs) for 279 individuals of the sable Martes zibellina (Carnivora, Mustelidae), derived fromExpand
Comparative phylogeography of the endemic Japanese weasel (Mustela itatsi) and the continental Siberian weasel (Mustela sibirica) revealed by complete mitochondrial genome sequences
TLDR
The results indicate a single migration of an ancestral population from the Korean Peninsula to southern Japan across an Early Pleistocene land bridge, followed by allopatric speciation of M. itatsi in Japan. Expand
A Total Evidence Phylogenetic Analysis of Pinniped Phylogeny and the Possibility of Parallel Evolution Within a Monophyletic Framework
TLDR
Results suggest the pinniped stem may be expanded to include additional fossil arctoid taxa, including Puijila, Potamotherium, and Kolponomos, and provide further support for prolonged freshwater and nearshore phases in the Evolution of pinnipeds, prior to the evolution of the extreme level of aquatic adaptation displayed by extant taxa.

New Early Miocene Material of Iberictis, the Oldest Member of the Wolverine Lineage (Carnivora, Mustelidae, Guloninae)
We describe new dental remains of the genus Iberictis (Carnivora: Mustelidae) from the late early Miocene of the Iberian Peninsula. The new fossils of Iberictis azanzae from Artesilla (16.5–16.3 Ma,Expand
A mitogenomic phylogeny and genetic history of sable (Martes zibellina).
TLDR
Evidence of positive selection acting at ND4 and cytochrome b genes is found, thereby suggesting adaptive evolution of the A2a clade in Kamchatka, and Bayesian skyline plots show an expansion around 40 kya in the warm Karganian time. Expand

Molecular phylogeny of the carnivora (mammalia): assessing the impact of increased sampling on resolving enigmatic relationships.
TLDR
This study analyzed 76 species of Carnivora using a concatenated sequence of 6243 bp from six genes, representing the most comprehensive sampling yet undertaken for reconstructing the phylogeny of this clade. Expand
A phylogeny of the Caniformia (order Carnivora) based on 12 complete protein-coding mitochondrial genes.
TLDR
The sequence of 12 mitochondrial genes from a total of 38 carnivore species was used to investigate the phylogeny of the caniform (dog-like) carnivores and provided a unique and well-supported solution to most contentious relationships within Caniformia. Expand
Phylogeny of the caniform carnivora: evidence from multiple genes
TLDR
Combined analyses of four nuclear and one mt genes recover a branching order in which almost all nodes were strongly supported, and provide evidence in favor of Ailurus fulgens as the closest taxon to the procyonid-mustelid clade. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships within caniform carnivores based on analyses of the mitochondrial 12S rRNA gene
TLDR
The complete 12S rRNA gene of 32 carnivore species, including four feliforms and 28 caniforms, was sequenced and showed an unresolved polytomy of the basic caniform clades; pinnipeds, mustelids, procyonids, skunks, Ailurus (lesser panda), ursids, and canids, indicating a major diversification ofCaniforms during a relatively short period of time.

Evolutionary trends of the mitochondrial lineage differentiation in species of genera Martes and Mustela.
TLDR
The authors' data suggested that these lineages of Martes and Mustela differentiated in a stepwise fashion with five radiation stages from the generic divergences to the intraspecific divergence, during the last 10 or 20 million years as the fossil evidence suggests. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of otters (Carnivora: Mustelidae) based on mitochondrial cytochrome b sequences
TLDR
This work evaluates the relationships among nine of the 13 species of otters and their position in the Mustelidae through phylogenetic analysis of the complete nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene and indicates that among sampled mustelid taxa, members of the genus Mustela are most closely related to otters. Expand
Phylogeny of the Procyonidae (Mammalia: Carnivora): molecules, morphology and the Great American Interchange.
TLDR
The findings, which are in strong disagreement with prior fossil and morphology-based assessments of procyonid relationships, reemphasize the morphological and ecological flexibility of these taxa and suggest convergence associated with similar lifestyles and diets rather than ancestry. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships and Divergence Times among Mustelids (Mammalia: Carnivora) Based on Nucleotide Sequences of the Nuclear Interphotoreceptor Retinoid Binding Protein and Mitochondrial Cytochrome b Genes
TLDR
The low level of sequence divergence in cytochrome b between Mustela lutreola and Putorius is therefore a result of interspecific mitochondrial introgression between these taxa, rather than a recent origin of Mustelinae in a close relationship to Putorius. Expand
Evidence from Nuclear DNA Sequences Sheds Light on the Phylogenetic Relationships of Pinnipedia: Single Origin with Affinity to Musteloidea
TLDR
Evidence from nuclear DNA evolution presented here contradicts the two major hypotheses of pinniped relationships and strongly suggests a single origin of the pinnipeds from an arctoid ancestor shared with Musteloidea to the exclusion of Ursidae. Expand
