Mating pattern and gene flow were studied in the contact zone between two morphologically very similar Chiffchaff taxa (Phylloscopus collybita, P. brehmii) in SW France and northern Spain. Mating was assortative in brehmii, but not in collybita. Mixed matings were strongly asymmetric (excess of collybita male × brehmii female pairs), but did produce viable offspring in some cases. Sequence divergence of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene was 4.6%. Haplotypes segregated significantly with… 
GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION AT NUCLEAR AND MITOCHONDRIAL LOCI AMONG LARGE WHITE‐HEADED GULLS: SEX‐BIASED INTERSPECIFIC GENE FLOW?
TLDR
The extensive similarity of their nuclear genome demonstrates that selection on a limited number of characters is an important factor in establishing and maintaining clear‐cut phenotypic differences between these species and suggests that the number of loci involved in this process is quite low.
Molecular and morphological patterns of introgression between two large white‐headed gull species in a zone of recent secondary contact
TLDR
It is hypothesized that one of these variables, the orbital ring colour, may play a role in mate choice, acting as an incomplete premating barrier through assortative mating, and multilocus approaches are useful to discriminate among possible mechanisms responsible for the maintenance of hybrid zones.
Genetic differentiation and history of populations of the Italian treefrog Hyla intermedia: lack of concordance between mitochondrial and nuclear markers
TLDR
How the use of multiple markers having distinct evolutionary properties can help unravel the existence of more complex evolutionary histories is emphasized, in the context of population genetic studies.
Amplified fragment length polymorphism analysis identifies hybrids between two subspecies of warblers
TLDR
The data suggest that the fraction of the adult population having a hybrid origin (hybrids or backcrosses) is in the order of 10%, consistent with male‐biased gene flow and Haldane’s rule.
A hybrid zone with coincident clines for autosomal and sex‐specific markers in the Sorex araneus group
TLDR
The significantly lower number of mismatches observed in males than in females possibly results from Y chromosome–mtDNA interactions, and the overall level of genetic differentiation between the two species must be strong enough to hinder asymmetric introgression.
Contrasting patterns of mitochondrial and microsatellite genetic structure among Western European populations of tawny owls (Strix aluco)
TLDR
It is suggested that congruence among genetic markers should be more likely in cases of range expansion into new areas than when populations interact across contact zones.
Cytonuclear discordance across a leopard frog contact zone.
TLDR
A genetic analysis of the extent of hybridization within and outside a contact zone between two North American leopard frogs, Rana blairi and Rana pipiens, by comparing distribution patterns of mitochondrial and nuclear haplotypes shows strong cytonuclear discordance.
Simple identification of mitochondrial lineages in contact zones based on lineage‐selective primers
TLDR
A simple and quick polymerase chain reaction assay for identification of divergent mtDNA lineages in a secondary contact zone of the side‐blotched lizard (Uta stansburiana) is devised and tested, confirming its usefulness in quick and reliable identification of mt DNA lineages.
Unidirectional Hybridization and Introgression in an Avian Contact Zone: Evidence from Genetic Markers, Morphology, and Comparisons with Laboratory-Raised F1 Hybrids
TLDR
The results indicate the existence of a unimodal hybrid zone with asymmetric introgression from S. capicola into S. vinacea, which suggests a balance between dispersal and selection.
DIFFERENTIAL PATTERNS OF MALE AND FEMALE MTDNA EXCHANGE ACROSS THE ATLANTIC OCEAN IN THE BLUE MUSSEL, MYTILUS EDULIS

Unidirectional Spread of Secondary Sexual Plumage Traits Across an Avian Hybrid Zone
TLDR
An avian hybrid zone between Manacus candei and M. vitellinus is reported here that displays an unusual pattern of noncoincident clines, suggesting that sexual selection is driving male sexual traits across the zone.
Microsatellite analysis of population structure in Canadian polar bears
TLDR
Using eight hypervariable microsatellite loci to study the genetic relationships between four Canadian polar bear populations indicates that gene flow between local populations is restricted despite the long‐distance seasonal movements undertaken by polar bears.

TLDR
Variation in mitochondrial DNA was surveyed, using restriction endonucleases, in all species of the Papilio glaucus and P. troilus groups (Lepidoptera: Papilionidae), confirming traditional species limits in the two species groups and compared favourably with a prior survey of their allozymes.

The research aims at investigating genetic structuring along an altitudinal gradient in its Himalayan breeding quarters and how this is related to morphological differentiation.

TLDR
A large microsatellite data set from three species of bear was used to empirically test the performance of six genetic distance measures in resolving relationships at a variety of scales, finding that linearity was lost for each of the statistics.

MORPHOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR VARIATION ACROSS A MIGRATORY DIVIDE IN WILLOW WARBLERS, PHYLLOSCOPUS TROCHILUS
TLDR
The observed pattern, clear morphological and behavioral differentiation without genetic differentiation at neutral loci, suggests either that the differences are maintained by strong selection on the expressed genes in combination with high levels of current gene flow or, in the case of weak gene flow, that the divergence in morphology and behavior is very recent.
