We address the problem of the possible significance of biological speciation to the magnitude and pattern of divergence of asexually transmitted characters in bisexual species. The empirical data for this report consist of restriction endonuclease site variability in maternally transmitted mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) isolated from 82 samples of Peromyscus polionotus and P. leucopus collected from major portions of the respective species' ranges. Data are analyzed together with previously… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Mitochondrial DNA sequence data indicate evidence for multiple species within Peromyscus maniculatus

TLDR
A comprehensive phylogenetic study was conducted to assess patterns of genetic variation throughout the range of P. maniculatus to resolve the taxonomy and ascertain the distribution of phylogroups, revealing the presence of eight major phylogenetic groups.

Mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences reveal recent divergence in morphologically indistinguishable petrels

TLDR
Coalescent analyses reveal effectively no migration between GAPE and HAPE and that they diverged relatively recently, coincident with a time of intense ecological change in both the Galapagos and Hawaiian archipelagoes, which indicates that recent divergence and incomplete lineage sorting are causing the difference in the strength of the phylogenetic signal of each data set.

Mitochondrial-DNA Analysis of the Systematic Relationships within the Peromyscus maniculatus Species Group

TLDR
The parsimony and distance-based phylogenetic analyses of sequence data from three mitochondrial DNA genes revealed that, as currently recognized, the Peromyscus maniculatus species group is polyphyletic and that P. coolidgei is closer to P. sejugis than to the other subspecies of P. manicuatus examined.

A population genetic analysis of chloroplast DNA in Phacelia

TLDR
Hierarchical sampling from populations, incipient and recognized varieties within Phacelia dubia and P maculata has revealed high levels of intraspecific polymorphism in chloroplast DNA, suggesting an ancient split in the evolution of plastid genomes.

Systematic Relationships among Waterfowl (Anatidae) Inferred from Restriction Endonuclease Analysis of Mitochondrial DNA

TLDR
Estimates of mtDNA sequence divergence among congeneric waterfowl fall in a broad range well within the expected linear portion of the curve, demonstrating that the restriction fragment approach to mtDNA analysis should provide an important new molecular technique for studying evolutionary relationships among lower taxonomic levels in Aves.

Mitochondrial-DNA and nuclear-gene differentiation in North American prairie grouse (Genus Tympanuchus)

TLDR
Mitochondrial-DNA restriction-site and allozyme variation in prairie grouse obtained from localities throughout their current range in North America were assayed to examine the nature and timing of events promoting differentiation in Tympanuchus, finding no clear genetic differences among species.

MITOCHONDRIAL‐DNA VARIATION IN THE CRESTED NEWT SUPERSPECIES: LIMITED CYTOPLASMIC GENE FLOW AMONG SPECIES

TLDR
The crested newt has a widespread European distribution and encompasses four taxa recently elevated to full species; the levels of divergence found concur with the systematics of the group, but the differentiation within T. carnifex and T. karelini is notable.

Chloroplast DNA Restriction Site Phylogeny of the Genus Androcymbium (Colchicaceae)

TLDR
The results indicate that the genus Androcymbium is monophyletic and had a southern African origin, and weak support for the monophyly of the two currently recognized sections suggests that the presence of wing-like appendages on the tepals is not a reliable taxonomic character for sectional circumscription.

MITOCHONDRIAL DNA SEQUENCE VARIATION AMONG NATURAL POPULATIONS OF THE TRINIDAD GUPPY, POECILIA RETICULATA

TLDR
Examination of fish from northeastern South America will be required to determine whether these populations differentiated in their present locations or were the result of separate invasions of Trinidad from different Venezuelan sources, however, genetic isolation of these populations appears to predate the current physical separation of the island of TrinidadFrom the Venezuelan mainland.

Extensive polymorphism in the mitochondrial DNA of apes.

TLDR
It is proposed that each ape species is the remnant of an ancient and widespread population that became subdivided geographically and reduced in size and range, perhaps by hominid competition and is consistent with geological evidence that the human species is young.

CHROMOSOMAL EVOLUTION AND THE MODE OF SPECIATION IN THREE SPECIES OF PEROMYSCUS

TLDR
This study was designed to yield additional data on the cytogenetics of three species of the Peromyscus maniculatus complex of deer mice in order to evaluate the "centrifugal speciation" model as a viable explanation of the evolutionary origin of the complex.

Rapid evolution of animal mitochondrial DNA.

TLDR
The rate of evolution of the mitochondrial genome appears to exceed that of the single-copy fraction of the nuclear genome by a factor of about 10 and is likely to be an extremely useful molecule to employ for high-resolution analysis of the evolutionary process.

EXTENSIVE GENETIC VARIATION IN MITOCHONDRIAL DNA'S AMONG GEOGRAPHIC POPULATIONS OF THE DEER MOUSE, PEROMYSCUS MANICULATUS

TLDR
The data presented in this paper are of considerable significance to two different but closely interrelated aspects of mtDNA evolution: the use of restriction endonucleases to measure mitochondrial DNA sequence relatedness in natural populations and the observation that samples from Colorado and southern Michigan were very similar in mtDNA sequence.

GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION DURING THE SPECIATION PROCESS IN DROSOPHILA

TLDR
The question, "how much genetic differentiation occurs in the process of speciation," must be unfolded into two separate questions concerning the two stages of the process, and the genetic differentiation occurring between allopatric populations that are likely to give rise to different species if and when they become, at least partially, sympatric.

Ecological Shifts and the Evolution of Geographically Restricted Species of North American Peromyscus (Mice)

TLDR
Studies of the ecology of colonization and the evolution of restricted species are viewed as a promising means for fashioning a general theory of the 'biogeography of the species' which is applicable on continents, as well as on islands.

DNA polymorphism detectable by restriction endonucleases.

TLDR
This application has suggested that the evolutionary change of mtDNA in higher animals occurs mainly by nucleotide substitution rather than by deletion and insertion, and the evolutionary distances among the three species have been estimated.
