The masked palm civet Paguma larvata (Carnivora: Viverridae) in Japan has been phylogeographically considered an introduced species from Taiwan. To reveal the population structures and relationships among the P. larvata populations in Japan, seven compound microsatellite loci were isolated from the genome and genotyped for 287 individuals collected from the field. STRUCTURE analysis and factorial correspondence analysis of genotyping data revealed that animals from Japan were divided into four… 
Introduction and Expansion History of the Masked Palm Civet, Paguma larvata, in Japan, Revealed by Mitochondrial DNA Control Region and Cytochrome b Analysis
TLDR
The mitochondrial DNA control region of 226 individuals from Japan and Taiwan was analyzed, and 13 haplotypes were identified, which are phylogenetically closely related to each other, and strongly show multiple introduced routes of P. larvata in Eastern Japan.
Multiple Origins of the Japanese Marten Martes melampus Introduced Into Hokkaido Island, Japan, Revealed by Microsatellite Analysis
TLDR
The results suggest that the founders were introduced to Hokkaido from multiple locations in the native distributional range in Japan, and that the descendants still maintain genetic polymorphisms.
The genetic structure of raccoon introduced in Central Europe reflects multiple invasion pathways
TLDR
The results confirm the high intensity of the raccoon invasion in Central Europe and point to specific measures needed as part of an effective management strategy.
Development and Characterization of Polymorphic Microsatellite Markers (SSRs) for an Endemic Plant, Pseudolarix amabilis (Nelson) Rehd. (Pinaceae)
TLDR
Five compound SSR markers and ten novel polymorphic expressed sequence tags (EST) derived microsatellites showed that all 15 loci were polymorphic with the number of alleles per locus ranging from two to seven, which will contribute to the species conservation.
Development and Characterization of Polymorphic Microsatellite Markers ( SSRs ) for an Endemic Plant , Pseudolarix amabilis ( Nelson )
TLDR
To better understand levels of genetic diversity, population structure and gene flow among populations of P. amabilis, five compound SSR markers and ten novel polymorphic expressed sequence tags (EST) derived microsatellites were developed and all 15 loci were polymorphic.
Molecular characterization and zoonotic potential of Enterocytozoon bieneusi, Giardia duodenalis and Cryptosporidium sp. in farmed masked palm civets (Paguma larvata) in southern China
TLDR
To the best of the authors' knowledge, this first report of enteric protists in farmed masked palm civets suggests that these animals might be potential reservoirs of zoonotic E. bieneusi and G. duodenalis infections.
Habitat preferences of medium/large mammals in human disturbed forests in Central Japan
TLDR
It is demonstrated that, if a forest had been disturbed by human, the forest can be a habitat for terrestrial herbivores, but this was not always true for frugivores.

Origins and Founder Effects on the Japanese Masked Palm Civet Paguma larvata (Viverridae, Carnivora), Revealed from a Comparison with Its Molecular Phylogeography in Taiwan
TLDR
The comparison of haplotype distributions strongly demonstrated that the eastern Japanese populations originated from animals of western Taiwan, and that the western Japanese populations originate from those of eastern Taiwan.
Genetic variations of the masked palm civet Paguma larvata, inferred from mitochondrial cytochrome b sequences
TLDR
The present study highlighted the problem whether the Japanese Paguma larvata is an introduced species showing multiple original routes, or whether it is a native species genetically differentiated from Southeast Asian populations and even within Japan.
Low genetic diversity in the masked palm civet Paguma larvata (Viverridae)
TLDR
A low genetic variability is indicated in the masked palm civet and a lack of a phylogeographic structure is suggested in this species, which do not allow inferring the geographic origin of samples of unknown origin, although it is possible to distinguish individuals from China and the Sundaic region.
Genetic Variation and Population Structure of the Feral American Mink (Neovison vison) in Nagano, Japan, Revealed by Microsatellite Analysis
TLDR
The results suggest that the genetic characters of the American mink populations around the Chikuma River were not formed after naturalization, but during or before breeding in fur farms, resulting in genetic structure change in the future populations.
Isolation and Characterization of Polymorphic Microsatellite Markers for the Masked Palm Civet (Paguma larvata)
TLDR
The isolation and characterization of six polymorphic microsatellite markers for P. larvata are reported, which indicate the species is a potential carrier of a SARS-like CoV virus and its geographic distribution and genetic diversity have never been studied.
Karyological Study of the Masked Palm Civet Paguma larvata in Japan (Viverridae)
The genus Paguma is monotypic, containing the single species Paguma larvata, the masked palm civet. This species is distributed widely, in India, eastern Tibet, Vietnam, the Malay Peninsula, Sumatra,
Isolation and characterization of compound microsatellite loci in the tri-spine horseshoe crab (Tachypleus tridentatus)
TLDR
To examine the genetic structure and the genetic diversity of the Japanese population, eight novel compound micros satellite loci were developed by the intercompound microsatellite method and were considered useful as conservation genetic markers for this endangered species.
Genetic divergence in the small Indian mongoose (Herpestes auropunctatus), a widely distributed invasive species
TLDR
It is suggested that population assignments of individuals should be viewed as tentative and that there should be agreement among different algorithms before assignments are applied in conservation or management of the small Indian mongoose.
Isolation of compound microsatellite loci in the herbaceous perennial Cirsium purpuratum (Maxim.) Matsum.
TLDR
The herbaceous perennial Cirsium purpuratum is a pioneer on the southeast side of Mount Fuji in Japan and polymorphic compound microsatellite markers developed using an adaptor‐ligated library method and a simpler method called the intercompound micros satellite method were considered effective for genetic analysis.
