The highland fish fauna of eastern North America consists of Appalachian and Ozark centers of endemism separated by the intervening Glacial Till Plains. Clades within these areas are more closely related phylogenetically to each other than to clades occurring in the intervening formerly glaciated region, suggesting that the Pleistocene glaciations fragmented a widespread highland region and its associated fauna. Alternatively, it is possible that these faunal assemblages predate the glaciations… 
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.
Pleistocene climatic fluctuations explain the disjunct distribution and complex phylogeographic structure of the Southern Red-backed Salamander, Plethodon serratus
TLDR
The hypothesis that climate-induced environmental changes during the Pleistocene played a dominant role in driving isolation and divergence of disjunct populations of P. serratus is supported.
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.

EFFECTS OF CLIMATIC AND GEOLOGICAL PROCESSES DURING THE PLEISTOCENE ON THE EVOLUTIONARY HISTORY OF THE NORTHERN CAVEFISH, AMBLYOPSIS SPELAEA (TELEOSTEI: AMBLYOPSIDAE)
TLDR
The results show that the modern Ohio River has been a significant barrier to dispersal and is correlated with patterns of genetic divergence, and infer that populations were isolated in two refugia located north and south of the Ohio River during the most recent two glacial cycles.
Gene lineages and eastern North American palaeodrainage basins: phylogeography and speciation in salamanders of the Eurycea bislineata species complex
TLDR
The molecular genetic results corroborate geological and faunistic evidence suggesting that palaeodrainage connections altered by glacial advances and headwater erosion occurring between the mid‐Miocene and Pleistocene epochs explain regional patterns of biodiversity in eastern North American streams.
Explicit tests of palaeodrainage connections of southeastern North America and the historical biogeography of Orangethroat Darters (Percidae: Etheostoma: Ceasia)
TLDR
Results of DEC ancestral area reconstructions indicate that the Teays‐Mahomet River was a key dispersal route between disjunct highland regions connecting the Mississippi River tributaries to the Old‐Ohio Drainage minimally at two separate occasions during the Pleistocene.
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.

Vicariance biogeography in the Pleistocene and speciation in North American wood warblers: a test of Mengel's model.
TLDR
The phylogeny of the black-throated green warbler complex is reconstructed, implying a mix, wherein some western endemics were budded off an eastern source, as Mengel posits, while others probably resulted from intermontane isolations in the west.

TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of the total mtDNA restriction‐site variation throughout the range of Onychomys suggests that the distribution of this genus has been affected by the same Quaternary pluvial‐interpluvial climatic fluctuations that have resulted in the periodic fragmentation of arid habitats in western North America.
Evolutionary and Biogeographic Relationships of Fundulus catenatus (Fundulidae)
TLDR
Evolutionary relationships among 21 geographic samples of the northern studfish, Fundulus catenatus, were inferred from genotype distributions at 24 presumptive gene loci, and a pattern of relationship supports the persistence of gene flow across the region that is now the Central Lowlands after isolation of the Ouachita Highlands.
Variation in Mitochondrial DNA and the Biogeographic History of Woodrats (Neotoma) of the Eastern United States
TLDR
Results indicate that three major lineages of Neotoma floridana diverged in the early Pleistocene, and the pattern of mtDNA variation in the southern lineage suggests that vicariance events, including the insularization of Florida, have been important determinants of geographic variation.

SPECIATION IN NORTH AMERICAN CHICKADEES: I. PATTERNS OF mtDNA GENETIC DIVERGENCE
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses suggest that North American taxa include two clades, hudsonicus‐rufescens‐sclateri versus carolinensis‐atricapillus‐gambeli and thatCarolinensis and atricapilli are not sister species.
ORIGIN AND EVOLUTION OF THE BIOTA OF SOUTHEASTERN NORTH AMERICA: EVIDENCE FROM THE FOSSIL PLANT RECORD
TLDR
An attempt will be made to characterize the older plant communities, and the conditions under which they evolved, and to demonstrate the existence of paleoenvironments suitable for the introduction of other components during subsequent periods of geologic time.
BIOGEOGRAPHY OF OUACHITA HIGHLAND FISHES
The Ouachita Mountain Province in southwestern Oklahoma and southeastern Arkansas is an uplifted and strongly faulted region drained largely by the Kiamichi, Little, Ouachita and Saline rivers.
HISTORICAL BIOGEOGRAPHY OF THE BANANAQUIT (COEREBA FLAVEOLA) IN THE CARIBBEAN REGION: A MITOCHONDRIAL DNA ASSESSMENT
TLDR
The geographic distribution of mt DNA haplotypes, and of bananaquit populations, suggests periods of invasiveness followed by relative geographic quiescence, and provides a remarkable counterexample of strong geographic structuring of mtDNA variation over relatively small distances.
Molecular zoogeography of freshwater fishes in the southeastern United States.
TLDR
Results exemplify the positive role that intraspecific genetic analyses may play in historical zoogeographic reconstruction and point out the potential inadequacies of any interpretations of population genetic structure that fail to consider the influences of history in shaping that structure.
