The four extant members of the family Tapiridae have a disjunct, relictual distribution, with three species being Neotropical (Tapirus bairdii, T. terrestris, andT. pinchaque) and one found in Southeast Asia (T. indicus). Little recent work on tapir systematics have appeared, and no molecular studies of this group have been published. A phylogenetic analysis was undertaken using sequences of the mitochondrial cytochromec oxidase subunit II gene (COII) from representatives of the four species of… 
Molecular phylogeny and evolution of the Perissodactyla
TLDR
An important implication of this study is that Equus asinus, the African wild ass was found to be the sister taxon of Asiatic asses and zebras, diverging from the common ancestor with caballine horses 2 Mya.
A NEW UPPER PLEISTOCENE TAPIR FROM ARGENTINA: REMARKS ON THE PHYLOGENETICS AND DIVERSIFICATION OF NEOTROPICAL TAPIRIDAE
TLDR
A complete skull of a fossil tapir was recovered from outcrops of the Arroyo Feliciano Formation in the Argentine Mesopotamia and is recognized as a new species, Tapirus mesopotamicus sp.
itogenomics of the mountain tapir ( Tapirus pinchaque , apiridae , Perissodactyla , Mammalia ) in Colombia and Ecuador : hylogeography and insights into the origin and systematics f the South American tapirs anuel
TLDR
There was no significant spatial trend in genetic structure for the mountain tapir in Colombia and Ecuador and Phylogenetic analyses did not detect any important geographic clade within this species.
A comprehensive phylogeny of extant horses, rhinos and tapirs (Perissodactyla) through data combination
TLDR
The first phylogenies to include all extant species of Perissodactyla (oddtoed hoofed mammals) and the recently extinct quagga are presented and the contentious affinity of the Sumatran rhino is resolved in favour of it forming a clade with the two Asian rhinos.
Use of mitochondrial cytochrome b sequences to determine the origin of captive Asian tapirs Tapirus indicus: implications for conservation
TLDR
The results suggest that there may be up to 7 distinct haplotypes of T. indicus, and the diverged geographic distribution of these haplotypes illustrates the phylogeographic history of the family Tapiridae based on 963 bp cytochrome b sequences.
Phylogeography and spatial structure of the lowland tapir (Tapirus terrestris, Perissodactyla: Tapiridae) in South America
TLDR
The mitochondrial cytochrome b gene of 141 lowland tapirs (Tapirus terrestris) is sequenced – representing the largest geographical distribution sample of this species studied across of South America to date, agreeing quite well with the view of Voss et al., and against of the claims of Cozzuol et al.
First genomic resource for an endangered neotropical mega-herbivore: the complete mitochondrial genome of the forest-dweller (Baird’s) tapir (Tapirus bairdii)
TLDR
The complete annotation and analysis of the mitochondrial genome of T. bairdii will contribute to a better understanding of the population genomic diversity and structure of this species, and it will assist in the conservation and protection of its dwindling populations.
Phylogeography of the Mountain Tapir (Tapirus pinchaque) and the Central American Tapir (Tapirus bairdii) and the Origins of the Three Latin-American Tapirs by Means of mtCyt-B Sequences
TLDR
The Perissodactyla order is a very old group of mammals that had its maximum diversity peak during the Eocene, but during the upper Oligocene, 10 of the 14 families became extinct and currently only three superfamilies and three families are present.
A new species of tapir from the Amazon
TLDR
A new species of living Tapirus from the Amazon rain forest is described, the first since T. bairdii Gill, 1865, and the 1st new Perissodactyla in more than 100 years, from both morphological and molecular characters.

The evolution of the Old World monkey tribe Papionini, composed of macaques, baboons, mandrills, drills, and mangabeys, was examined using mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequence data on the cytochrome
Resolution of the African hominoid trichotomy by use of a mitochondrial gene sequence.
TLDR
Comparisons of cytochrome oxidase subunit II gene sequences provide clear-cut evidence from the mitochondrial genome for the separation of the African ape trichotomy into two evolutionary lineages, one leading to gorillas and the other to humans and chimpanzees.
Owl monkeys (Aotus) are highly divergent in mitochondrial Cytochromec Oxidase (COII) sequences
TLDR
The AotusCOII data support the existence of multiple species of Aotu, with origins predating late Pleistocene climatic events, and suggest that the taxa are genetically quite distinct and have likely experienced extended periods of isolated evolution.
Molecular evolution of the mitochondrial 12S rRNA in Ungulata (mammalia)
TLDR
The 12S rRNA was useful to solve intraordinal relationships among Ungulata, but it seemed to harbor too few informative positions to decipher the bushlike radiation of some UngulATA orders, an event which has most probably occurred in a short span of time between 55 and 70 MYA.
Evolution of the primate cytochrome c oxidase subunit II gene
TLDR
In congruence with previous studies on COII, it was found that the monkeys and apes have undergone a nearly two-fold increase in the rate of amino acid replacement relative to other primates.
Conservation Genetics of the Black Rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis), I: Evidence from the Mitochondrial DNA of Three Populations
TLDR
The mitochondrial DNA data suggest that within national boundaries, the black rhino populations the authors sampled may be considered single populations for breeding purposes, which might increase the species' probability of survival.
Evolution of the cytochrome b gene of mammals.
TLDR
Comparisons of these cytochrome b sequences support current structure-function models for this membrane-spanning protein, which suggests that the outer surface which includes the Qo redox center is more constrained than the remainder of the molecule, namely, the transmembrane segments and the surface that protrudes into the mitochondrial matrix.
Mitochondrial DNA evolution in the genus Equus.
TLDR
The variation between species supports a divergence of extant lineages from a common ancestor approximately 3.9 Myr before the present, and trees constructed according to the parsimony principle indicate that the three extant zebra species represent a monophyletic group.
Mitochondrial COII sequences and modern human origins.
TLDR
The mitochondrial DNA sequence data from COII and ND4-5 regions therefore do not support this multiregional hypothesis for the emergence of modern humans and are compatible with a 1-Myr-old human mitochondrial ancestor.
Phylogenetic relationships of Dipsacales based on rbcl sequences
TLDR
The genera of Caprifoliaceae do not form a monophyletic group and Symphoricarpos and Lonicera are related and are united with Valerianaceae and Dipsacaceae; Adoxa and Sambucus are directly linked and are possibly related to Viburnum.
