We compared mitochondrial DNA and gill-raker number variation in populations of the European whitefish Coregonus lavaretus (L.) species complex to illuminate their evolutionary history, and discuss mechanisms behind diversification. [] Key Method Using single-strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP) and sequencing 528 bp of combined parts of the cytochrome oxidase b (cyt b) and NADH dehydrogenase subunit 3 (ND3) mithochondrial DNA (mtDNA) regions, we documented phylogeographic relationships among populations…
Morphology and mitochondrial DNA variation of the Siberian whitefish Coregonus lavaretus pidschian (Gmelin) in the upstream water bodies of the Ob and Yenisei Rivers
TLDR
This work compared patterns of diversification within and among populations of the southern Siberian whitefish species Coregonus lavaretus pidschian (Gmelin) to illuminate their evolutionary history and documented phylogeographic relationships among populations and developed a phylogeny of mtDNA haplotypes.
Phylogeographic structure of brown trout Salmo trutta in Britain and Ireland: glacial refugia, postglacial colonization and origins of sympatric populations.
TLDR
The mosaic-like distribution of mtDNA lineages means that conservation prioritization in Britain and Ireland should be based on the biological characteristics of local populations rather than solely on evolutionary lineages.
Complex and divergent histories gave rise to genome‐wide divergence patterns amongst European whitefish (Coregonus lavaretus)
TLDR
It is suggested that neutral processes, primarily drift and regionally distinct pre‐glacial evolutionary histories, are important drivers of genomic divergence in British populations of European whitefish and sheds new light on the establishment of the native British freshwater fauna after the last glacial maximum.
Matrilinear phylogeography and demographical patterns of Rutilus rutilus: implications for taxonomy and conservation.
TLDR
A phylogeographic analysis of mitochondrial DNA sequence variation indicated a demographic expansion during the Middle-Pleistocene for both clades.
Northern and Southern expansions of Atlantic brown trout (Salmo trutta) populations during the Pleistocene
TLDR
The phylogeography of the Atlantic populations showed the mixed distribution of several Atlantic clades in glaciated areas of Northern Europe, whereas diverged haplotypes dominated the coastal Iberian rivers.
Circumpolar phylogeography of the northern pike (Esox lucius) and its relationship to the Amur pike (E. reichertii)
TLDR
The precise location of the glacial refugia is uncertain, but the data suggests an Asian origin, and one of the northern pike mtDNA lineages was found throughout the entire Holarctic region suggesting transcontinental dispersal from a single refugium.
Millennia-Long Co-Existence of Two Major European Whitefish (Coregonus spp.) Lineages in Switzerland Inferred from Ancient Mitochondrial DNA
TLDR
Two major mtDNA clades, C and N, known from contemporary European whitefish populations were detected, suggesting co-occurrence for at least 5000 years, and NGS technologies may be used to explore Coregonus or other fish species and ecotype diversity in the past to elucidate the human impact on lacustrine/limnic environments.
Mitogenome sequencing reveals shallow evolutionary histories and recent divergence time between morphologically and ecologically distinct European whitefish (Coregonus spp.)
TLDR
The utility of mitogenome data for resolving recent intraspecific divergence events is illustrated and evidence for recent reproductive isolation of the phenotypically divergent NSH is provided.
Delimitation of Alosa species (Teleostei: Clupeiformes) from the Sea of Azov: integrating morphological and molecular approaches.
TLDR
It is concluded that gill-raker number is not reliable for delimiting species of Alosa, and type material should be addressed by examining type material to provide a robust integrative classification for these commercially important fishes.
Composition of native and introduced mtDNA lineages in Coregonus sp. in two Austrian lakes: evidence for spatio-temporal segregation of larvae?
TLDR
The results imply that differences in the spawning ecology of the two groups maintain sufficient reproductive isolation to be reflected in distinct larval occurrence in space and time highly consistent with genetic differences on the mtDNA level.

Postglacial recolonization patterns and genetic relationships among whitefish (Coregonus sp.) populations in Denmark, inferred from mitochondrial DNA and microsatellite markers
TLDR
Both mtDNA and microsatellite data indicated that postglacial recolonization by C. lavaretus in Denmark was less likely to have taken place from the Baltic Sea, and suggested a recent common origin of all Danish whitefish populations, including North Sea houting, probably by recolonizing via the post glacial Elbe River system.
Complex patterns of colonization and refugia revealed for European grayling Thymallus thymallus, based on complete sequencing of the mitochondrial DNA control region
TLDR
The multiple divergent clades representing populations in the upper Danube, as well as the deeply divergent haplotypes found in the Adriatic and Loire basins support the theory that European grayling have had a long history in Western Europe, pre‐dating Pleistocene glacial cycles.

TLDR
Overall, the diversity, the geographic structure and the times of divergence of mtDNA phylogenetic assemblages correlate with the Pleistocene glaciations classically assumed to have dramatically altered the genetic diversity of northern fishes in recent evolutionary times.

TLDR
Phylogeographic, nested clade, and mismatch analyses of mitochondrial DNA variation were used to infer the temporal dynamics of distributional and demographic history of brown trout and confirmed the existence of five major evolutionary lineages that evolved in geographic isolation during the Pleistocene and have remained largely allopatric since then.
Mitochondrial and nuclear DNA phylogeography of European grayling (Thymallus thymallus): evidence for secondary contact zones in central Europe
TLDR
This study shows that both large‐scale phylogeographical and detailed genetic analyses on a fine scale are mandatory for developing appropriate conservation guidelines of endangered species.
Matrilinear phylogeography of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) in Europe and postglacial colonization of the Baltic Sea area
TLDR
The Swedish west‐coast populations differ from the geographically close southern Baltic, indicating absence of inward and limited outward gene flow through the Danish straits during the last 8000 years and proposed postglacial colonization routes to the Baltic Sea are discussed in relation to the haplotype distribution pattern.
Genetic lineages and postglacial colonization of grayling (Thymallus thymallus, Salmonidae) in Europe, as revealed by mitochondrial DNA analyses
TLDR
North European T. thymallus populations have survived dramatic Pleistocene temperature oscillations and originate from ancient eastern and central European refugia, and the remainder of Europe harbours additional differentiated assemblages that likely descend from a Danubian refugium.
Contrasting patterns of mitochondrial DNA and microsatellite introgressive hybridization between lineages of lake whitefish (Coregonus clupeaformis); relevance for speciation
TLDR
Assessment of mitochondrial DNA and microsatellite loci among lake whitefish populations indicated that environmental differences may be as important as the historical contingency of secondary contact in explaining the persistence of sympatric ecotypes and the differential pattern of introgressive hybridization among lakes.
Genetic divergence and phylogeographic relationships among European perch (Perca fluviatilis) populations reflect glacial refugia and postglacial colonization
TLDR
Investigation of postglacial colonization routes of freshwater fishes in Europe suggests that present perch populations in western and northern Europe were colonized from three main refugia, located in southeastern, northeastern and western Europe.
Combining mitochondrial DNA sequences and morphological data to infer species boundaries: phylogeography of lanceheaded pitvipers in the Brazilian Atlantic forest, and the status of Bothrops pradoi (Squamata: Serpentes: Viperidae)
TLDR
A hypothesis‐testing approach is demonstrated, using a combination of phylogeographic methods, multivariate morphometrics and matrix association tests, to investigate species boundaries in eastern Brazilian pitvipers, which leads to the conclusion that the haplotype clades do not denote independently evolving organismal lineages, and do not constitute separate species under any criterion.
