Conflicting mitochondrial and nuclear phylogenies for the widely disjunct Emys (Testudines: Emydidae) species complex, and what they tell us about biogeography and hybridization.
TLDR
It is argued that the invasion of Eurasia by Emys orbicularis occurred about 16 Ma via a trans-Beringian land bridge, which explains this discrepancy between mitochondrial and nuclear gene trees.
