Mitochondrial DNA from the extinct dusky seaside sparrow (Ammodramus maritimus nigrescens) was compared in terms of nucleotide sequence divergence to mitochondrial DNAs from extant populations of seaside sparrows. Analyses of restriction sites revealed a close phylogenetic affinity of A. m. nigrescens to other sparrow populations along the Atlantic coast of the United States but considerable genetic distance from Gulf coast birds. Concerns and applied management strategies for the seaside… Expand
Matrilineal history of the endangered Cape Sable seaside sparrow inferred from mitochondrial DNA polymorphism
TLDR
Results indicate that the Cape Sable birds belong to an ‘Atlantic’ matrilineal clade, and are highly divergent from other seaside sparrows along the Gulf of Mexico. Expand
Isolation and characterization of tetranucleotide microsatellite loci from the seaside sparrow (Ammodramus maritimus)
TLDR
Development and characterization of 11 novel microsatellite markers for seaside sparrow will be useful for individual identification as well as studies of fine-scale genetic relatedness within populations and subspecies of SESP. Expand
TIGER BEETLES (CICINDELA DORSALIS SAY) INFERRED FROM MITOCHONDRIAL DNA SEQUENCES
TLDR
The geographic distribution of haplotypes did not coincide with the distribution of morphological subspecies, but no evidence for hybridization between two subspecies could be inferred from this observation, and cladistic analysis grouped the haplotype sequences into two main lineages. Expand
INTRASPECIFIC MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY IN THE YELLOW WARBLER (DENDROICA PETECHIA), AND IMPLICATIONS FOR AVIAN BIOGEOGRAPHY IN THE WEST INDIES
  • N. K. Klein, W. Brown
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1994
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) restriction sites was used to examine the evolutionary history of populations of yellow warbler sampled from North America, Central America, South America, and the West Indies, and Parsimony analysis of haplotypes suggested multiple colonizations. Expand
Range-wide population genetic analysis of Seaside Sparrows (Ammospiza maritima) supports at least five distinct population segments that do not align with current subspecies descriptions
TLDR
Principal components, pairwise FST values, and clustering approaches suggest that Seaside Sparrows on the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts are distinct and consist of at least 5 genetic clusters: 1 in southern Texas, 1 ranging from Aransas County, Texas, to Mississippi; 1 in western Florida; and 2 or 3 genetic groups intermixed along a gradient on theAtlantic Coast.

PHYLOGEOGRAPHIC PATTERNS IN COASTAL NORTH AMERICAN TIGER BEETLES (CICINDELA DORSALIS SAY) INFERRED FROM MITOCHONDRIAL DNA SEQUENCES
  • A. Vogler, R. DeSalle
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1993
TLDR
The geographic distribution of haplotypes did not coincide with the distribution of morphological subspecies, but no evidence for hybridization between two subspecies could be inferred from this observation and the implications for the evolution of gene sequences at and below the species level are discussed.

Morphological Adaptation with No Mitochondrial DNA Differentiation in the Coastal Plain Swamp Sparrow
TLDR
A rapid and recent geographic expansion of Swamp Sparrows from restricted Pleistocene populations is suggested, suggesting that selection on the divergent traits is intense. Expand
Molecular population structure and the biogeographic history of a regional fauna : a case history with lessons for conservation biology
TLDR
These concordant phylogeographic patterns among independently evolving species provide evidence of similar vicariant histories of population separation, and can be related tentatively to episodic changes in environmental conditions during the Pleistocene. Expand
POPULATION STRUCTURE OF THE BOTTLENOSE DOLPHIN (TURSIOPS TRUNCATUS) AS DETERMINED BY RESTRICTION ENDONUCLEASE ANALYSIS OF MITOCHONDRIAL DNA
TLDR
The Atlantic Coast–Gulf of Mexico dichotomy is consistent with patterns of genetic variation from other marine and coastal organisms from this region, and supports the hypothesized role of bio-geographic events in promoting the divergence of these and other forms. Expand
