The northern flicker is a common woodpecker that inhabits open woodlands throughout North America. A narrow hybrid zone occurs along the range boundaries between the eastern yellow-shafted and western red-shafted subspecies. Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) was isolated from 20 1 flickers from 27 locales, primarily along two transects that cross the hybrid zone, one across the northern United States and one across the southern United States. Analysis of restriction-fragment patterns revealed…

Mitochondrial DNA Variation in Field Crickets across a Narrow Hybrid Zone

TLDR
Analysis of mitochondrial DNA restriction-site variation within and between populations of fall-adult field crickets across a narrow hybrid zone in Connecticut reveals two distinct mtDNA lineages, each consisting of a single common genotype together with one or more rare genotypes.

Genetic differentiation in populations of Canada geese (Branta canadensis)

TLDR
Principal coordinates analysis on the genetic distances, followed by nonmetric scaling in three dimensions and supplemented by construction of a minimum spanning tree, gave a more informative and less distorted picture of relationships among populations than cluster analysis.

RIBOSOMAL‐DNA, MITOCHONDRIAL‐DNA, CHROMOSOMAL, AND ALLOZYMIC STUDIES ON A CONTACT ZONE IN THE POCKET GOPHER, GEOMYS

TLDR
It is proposed that F1's and highly heterozygous males are sterile and that hybrid females are less fertile than parental females, and the structure of the zone can be explained by the “dynamic equilibrium” model.

MITOCHONDRIAL DNA AND PROTEIN DIFFERENTIATION BETWEEN HYBRIDIZING CYTOTYPES OF THE WHITE‐FOOTED MOUSE, PEROMYSCUS LEUCOPUS

Restriction‐enzyme analysis of mitochondrial DNA and protein electrophoresis were used to document patterns of gene flow across a hybrid zone between chromosomal races of Peromyscus leucopus.

REPRODUCTIVE ISOLATION AND INTROGRESSION BETWEEN NOTROPIS CORNUTUS AND NOTROPIS CHRYSOCEPHALUS (FAMILY CYPRINIDAE): COMPARISON OF MORPHOLOGY, ALLOZYMES, AND MITOCHONDRIAL DNA

TLDR
The lack of concordance of morphological, allozymic, and mtDNA introgression patterns implies operation of one or two factors: 1) geographically variable patterns of selection against different hybrid and backcross combinations or 2) genetic differences between Michigan populations inhabiting eastward‐ and westward‐flowing drainage systems accumulated during historical isolation.

Length variation and heteroplasmy are frequent in mitochondrial DNA from parthenogenetic and bisexual lizards (genus Cnemidophorus).

TLDR
The frequent occurrence of these length variations suggests either that they can be generated rapidly or that they were inherited from a highly polymorphic ancestor, the former interpretation is favored.

GENETIC ANALYSIS OF A HYBRID ZONE BETWEEN THE FIRE‐BELLIED TOADS, BOMBINA BOMBINA AND B. VARIEGATA, NEAR CRACOW IN SOUTHERN POLAND

TLDR
A survey of five diagnostic enzyme loci across the hybrid zone near Cracow in Southern Poland to estimate the dispersal rate, selection pressures, and numbers of loci which maintain this zone suggests that the zone is maintained largely by selection against hybrids.

Allozyme Analysis of the California Gull (Larus californicus)

TLDR
It is hypothesized, based on the morphological differences (Jehl 1987), that the genetic variation should be more pronounced between the Canadian and Great Basin birds than between the Great Basin colonies.

Holocene Climatic Changes in Relation to Vegetation Disjunction and Speciation

A review of plant distributions in central California indicates that important shifts in the area occupied by vegetation, as well as species, may result from a change of only 1⚬ C in mean temperature
