Not all is black and white: phylogeography and population genetics of the endemic blackbuck (Antilope cervicapra)

Both microsatellite and mitochondrial data indicate that the population from the Eastern part of India is genetically distinct and the species as a whole shows signatures of having undergone recent genetic expansion.

Dispersal vs. vicariance: the origin of India’s extant tetrapod fauna

Given the Indian block’s ancient association with Gondwana and subsequent separation from Africa, then Madagascar, then the Seychelles, vicariance has often been invoked to explain the distribution

Into-India or out-of-India? Historical biogeography of the freshwater gastropod genus Pila (Caenogastropoda: Ampullariidae)

The results showed that Pila dispersed into India as well as other parts of tropical Asia from Africa after both India and Africa collided with Eurasia, corroborate increasing evidence that much of the current Indian assemblage of biota actually dispersed ‘into-India’ after it collided with Asia.

Ancient divergence of Indian and Tibetan wolves revealed by recombination‐aware phylogenomics

Genomic findings imply that southern regions of Asia have been important centers for grey wolf evolution and that Indian and Tibetan wolves represent evolutionary significant units (ESUs), and further study is needed to assess whether these ESUs warrant recognition as distinct species.



A multi-calibrated mitochondrial phylogeny of extant Bovidae (Artiodactyla, Ruminantia) and the importance of the fossil record to systematics

It is illustrated how phylogeographic and paleoenvironmental hypotheses inferred from a tree containing only extant taxa can be problematic without consideration of the fossil record, and the importance of considering morphological and ecological characteristics of clades when delimiting higher taxa.

Chromosomal evolution in gazelles.

A phylogenetic reconstruction confirms most of the taxonomic relationships obtained by morphological analyses for this group of species, and the main novelties are the proximity of G. rufifrons and G. thomsoni and the inclusion of Antilope cervicapra in the gazelle group.

Phylogenetic relationships in the bovid subfamily Antilopinae based on mitochondrial DNA sequences.

The tribe Antilopini is monophyletic with Antidorcas marsupialis and Litocranius walleri basal to the large genus Gazella, which would either make Gazella paraphyletic or require that the genus name Gazella be changed to Antilope.

Phylogeny analysis of complete mitochondrial DNA sequences for pelagic fishes from tuna fishery

Phylogenetic relationships based on the complete mitochondrial among 58 species indicated that Teleostean and Chondrichthyans are well separated, however, the control region length of Mobula japonicais was much larger than the other species in this study.

Looking forwards or looking backwards in avian phylogeography? A comment on Zink and Barrowclough 2008

In a recent review, Zink & Barrowclough concluded that, for questions of phylogeographic pattern, mtDNA does quite well on its own as a descriptor of geographical and taxonomic patterns, and that ‘the case for the primacy of nuclear variation for studies of phylegeography is not so clear’.
