Many species are currently undergoing reductions in population size due to widespread habitat loss and expanding human activities. Because interspecific hybridization is often a consequence of population decline and fragmentation, identification of individuals or populations with hybrid ancestry is an increasingly important issue in conservation biology. In many wild cattle and bison species, the problem of natural hybridization has been compounded by indiscriminate crossbreeding with domestic… 

Conservation genomics: disequilibrium mapping of domestic cattle chromosomal segments in North American bison populations

The ability to identify even low levels of introgression resulting from historic hybridization events suggests that the use of linked molecular markers to identify Introgression is a significant development in the study of intregressive hybridization across a broad range of taxa.

Phenotypic Effects of Cattle Mitochondrial DNA in American Bison

The hypothesis that body size is smaller and height is lower in bison with domestic cattle mtDNA and that genomic integrity is important for the conservation of the American plains bison is supported.

DETECTIOn OF DOMESTIC CATTLE GEnE InTROGRESSIOn In A SMALL POPULATIOn OF nORTH AMERICAn BISOn

Recommendations to manage and restore the genetic integrity of populations with recent introgression of cattle mtDNA include identification of individuals with genetic markers or the use of breed registries.

Genomic evaluation of hybridization in historic and modern North American Bison (Bison bison)

Detailed analyses using whole genome sequencing from nineteen modern and six historical bison are reported to identify and quantitate signatures of nuclear introgression in their recent (within 200 years) history.

Genetic Analysis of the Henry Mountains Bison Herd

Using genetic samples from 129 individuals, it is confirmed it is highly unlikely for free-living bison to crossbreed with cattle, and this disease-free HM bison herd is valuable for the long-term conservation of the species.

A comprehensive evaluation of cattle introgression into US federal bison herds.

The identification of genetically unique and undisturbed populations is critical to species conservation efforts, and this study serves as a model for the genetic evaluation of interspecies introgression.

DETECTION OF BISON/CATTLE HYBRIDIZATION IN CUSTER STATE PARK BREEDING BULLS USING MICROSATELLITE AND MITOCHONDRIAL DNA MARKERS: TOOLS FOR CONSERVATION MANAGEMENT

The degree of hybridity in breeding bulls, was assayed in extant breeding bison bulls as well as samples of archived blood from Custer State Park bulls dating from 1994-2001 to utilize DNA-based assessments of Hybridity in the selection of breeding bulls in the CSP bison herd.

Cattle ancestry in bison : explanations for higher mtDNA than autosomal ancestry

A bottleneck, after the level of cattle ancestry in bison was reduced to a low level, is consistent with the high variance over autosomal loci observed for cattle ancestry, and differential selection among cattle loci in bisons does not need to be invoked.

Genetic analysis of a Bison bison herd derived from the Yellowstone National Park population

Genetic diversity levels in the quarantined herd were high and comparable to the YNP parent herd, suggesting a low risk of genetic loss in the near future.

Mitochondrial DNA analysis implying extensive hybridization of the endangered red wolf Canis rufus

Phylogenetic analysis indicates that red wolves have either a grey wolf or coyote mtDNA genotype, demonstrating hybridization among these species, and does not argue against the continued protection of the red wolf.

The results demonstrate that closely related species of mobile terrestrial vertebrates have the potential for extensive genetic exchange when ecological conditions change suddenly.

Bovine mtDNA Discovered in North American Bison Populations

In the process of constructing a phylogeny for North American bison from mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), a bovine (Bos taurus) haplotype (mitochondrial genotype) was discovered in the Custer State Park (CSP) herd of South Dakota, which prompted a survey forbovine haplotypes among eight other park populations of bison.

Evidence for two independent domestications of cattle.

Application of a molecular clock suggests that the two major mtDNA clades diverged at least 200,000, and possibly as much as 1 million, years ago, as evidence for two separate domestication events of different subspecies of the aurochs, Bos primigenius and Bos taurus.

Hybridization among the ancient mariners: characterization of marine turtle hybrids with molecular genetic assays.

Molecular genetic assays are employed to document the sporadic, natural occurrence of viable interspecific hybrids between species representing four of the five genera of cheloniid sea turtles.

Evolutionary history of the hybridogenetic hybrid frog Rana esculenta as deduced from mtDNA analyses.

The preponderance of R. esculenta individuals with lessonae mtDNA in samples from central Europe suggests that most lineages have gone through at least one mating between an R.Esculenta females with R. lessonae males, and reveals a greater reproductive role for R. Esculenta males than their partial sterility and infrequent matings would suggest.

Multiregional introgressions inferred from the mitochondrial DNA phylogeny of a hybridizing species complex of gobiid fishes, genus Tridentiger.

The results suggested the occurrence of multiregional introgression between the two species, with mitotypes transferring from one species to the other, as well as the phylogenetic relationships of mitotypes.

Cytonuclear Introgressive Swamping and Species Turnover of Bass After an Introduction

The cytonuclear genetic data indicate that within 10-15 years following the unauthorized introduction, a reversal in these species' abundances has occurred and that more than 99% of the population sample analyzed here consists of spotted bass or products of interspecific hybridization.

It is suggested that interspecies hybridization has occurred, primarily between mule deer bucks and white-tailed deer does, with preferential absorption of hybrid offspring into the mule Deer gene pool.

An accurately resolved gene tree may not be congruent with the species tree because of lineage sorting of ancestral polymorphisms, but a survey of mtDNA‐haplotype diversity in 34 species of birds indicates that coalescence is generally very recent, which suggests that coalescent times are typically much shorter than internodal branch lengths of the species Tree, and that sorting of mt DNA lineages is not likely to confound the species trees.
