Abstract We employed Bayesian coalescent modeling of samples of mitochondrial control region sequences in two species of shorebird, Red Knots (Calidris canutus) and Dunlins (Calidris alpina) to estimate evolutionary effective population size, population divergence times, and time to most recent common ancestor of genes in the samples. The gene trees for the two species contrast sharply: knot haplotypes were connected in a shallow, star phylogeny whereas Dunlin haplotypes were related in a… 

Global flyway evolution in red knots Calidris canutus and genetic evidence for a Nearctic refugium

TLDR
It is inferred that red knots derive from two main lineages that diverged ca.

Genetic structure among continental and island populations of gyrfalcons

TLDR
It is inferred that the observed microsatellite population genetic structure has developed since the last glacial maximum, consistent with gyrfalcons having expanded rapidly from a single glacial‐age refugium to their current circumpolar distribution.

Multilocus Phylogeography of a Holarctic Duck: Colonization of North America from Eurasia by Gadwall (Anas strepera)

TLDR
This study illustrates the use of multiple loci and coalescent analyses for critically testing a priori hypotheses regarding dispersal and colonization and provides an independent datapoint supporting an OW to NW bias in the direction of colonization.

Low genetic differentiation between Greenlandic and Siberian Sanderling populations implies a different phylogeographic history than found in Red Knots

TLDR
The results suggest that the assignment of breeding origin of Sanderling on Afro-European flyways will not be possible with simple and inexpensive genetic methods, and imply that Sanderlings and Red Knots have very different post-glacial phylogeographic histories.

Population structure of Purple Sandpipers (Calidris maritima) as revealed by mitochondrial DNA and microsatellites

TLDR
There was significant genetic differentiation among samples from all breeding locations; however, none of the breeding populations was a monophyletic group; and differentiation between both Iceland and Svalbard breeding populations and North American wintering populations was found.

Intercontinental Migratory Connectivity and Population Structuring of Dunlins from Western Alaska

Abstract. The Dunlin (Calidris alpina) is a polytypic shorebird with complex patterns of distribution and migration throughout its holarctic range. We analyzed mark-re sighting data obtained

Genetic diversity and population structure of wintering Western Sandpipers from the Sinaloa coast, Mexico

TLDR
The low level of nucleotide diversity, the star-shape of the haplotype tree, the mismatch distribution, and the significantly negative Tajima's D values suggest that Western Sandpipers underwent a recent demographic expansion.

Mito‐nuclear discord in six congeneric lineages of Holarctic ducks (genus Anas)

TLDR
Holarctic ducks show prominent mito‐nuclear discord between Old World and New World populations, and this study rejects differences in sorting rates as the sole cause of the within‐species discord.

High gene flow on a continental scale in the polyandrous Kentish plover Charadrius alexandrinus

TLDR
A prominent role for polyandrous females is suggested in maintaining genetic homogeneity across large geographic distances in the phylogeography of the Kentish plover Charadrius alexandrinus.

Multilocus test of the absence of mtDNA phylogeographic structure in a widespread wader, the Common Sandpiper (Actitis hypoleucos)

TLDR
The mtDNA results were consistent with those based on nuclear loci in suggesting a lack of strong population structure and a recent population increase, however, multiple genes are needed to quantify demographic history such as timing and extent of effective population size change.

Mitochondrial DNA lineages in composite flocks of migratory and wintering dunlins (Calidris alpina).

TLDR
The genetic composition of nonbreeding populations indicates the confluence of breeding populations on southward migration and mtDNA analysis can be extremely useful in defining broad migration corridors or flyways, and in determining staging and wintering areas used by the major breeding populations.

GLOBAL MITOCHONDRIAL DNA PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF HOLARCTIC BREEDING DUNLINS (CALIDRIS ALPINA)

TLDR
Dunlins provide one of the clearest examples of the linkage between historical and contemporary components of mtDNA phylogeographic structuring in birds, which is being maintained by natal philopatry.

Disjunct distribution of highly diverged mitochondrial lineage clade and population subdivision in a marine bivalve with pelagic larval dispersal

TLDR
According to mitochondrial DNA sequence data, populations of this species can remain highly subdivided in spite of the potential for high gene flow, implying that their population and evolutionary dynamics can be independent.

TIME TO THE MOST RECENT COMMON ANCESTOR AND DIVERGENCE TIMES OF POPULATIONS OF COMMON CHAFFINCHES (FRINGILLA COELEBS) IN EUROPE AND NORTH AFRICA: INSIGHTS INTO PLEISTOCENE REFUGIA AND CURRENT LEVELS OF MIGRATION

TLDR
Estimating the locations of refugia where chaffinches survived the last glacial episode was achieved by estimating the TMRCA of populations in regions surrounding the Mediterranean that were unglaciated in the late Pleistocene, suggesting these regions served as refugi for the common chaffinch.

The deep roots of bird migration: Inferences from the historical record preserved in DNA

TLDR
Simulation of the coalescent process in three species of migratory birds to detect historical migration events and indicate that current faithful behavioural migration to natal breeding sites is maintaining regional population divergences that originated in the last half of the Pleistocene.

PERSPECTIVE: GENE DIVERGENCE, POPULATION DIVERGENCE, AND THE VARIANCE IN COALESCENCE TIME IN PHYLOGEOGRAPHIC STUDIES

TLDR
It is shown that phylogeographic studies in vertebrates suggest that divergence of alleles in ancestral species can comprise from less than 10% to over 50% of the total divergence between sister species, suggesting that the problem of ancestral polymorphism in dating population divergence can be substantial.

Hypervariable-control-region sequences reveal global population structuring in a long-distance migrant shorebird, the Dunlin (Calidris alpina).

TLDR
It is shown that population fragmentation in Pleistocene refuges is the most plausible mechanism of mtDNA differentiation but at a much earlier time scale than suggested previously with morphometric data.

Breeding origin and migration pattern of dunlin (Calidris alpina) revealed by mitochondrial DNA analysis

TLDR
The genetic markers clearly show that the dunlin has a parallel migration system, with populations breeding in the western Palaearctic wintering mainly in theWestern part of the wintering range, and dunlin populations breeding further east wintering further east.

TLDR
The phylogeographical structure and sparse fossil records indicate that, during the last glaciation, some biologically significant refugia and important sources of postglacial colonization were located to the northwest of the main ice sheet in the Canadian Arctic.

Ancestral polymorphisms in genetic markers obscure detection of evolutionarily distinct populations in the endangered Florida grasshopper sparrow (Ammodramus savannarum floridanus)

TLDR
It is argued that despite the lack of phylogenetic distinctiveness of floridanus genotypes the observed genetic differentiation and previously documented phenotypic differences justify continued designation of this subspecies as a protected population segment.
