Previous morphological and molecular analyses failed to resolve the phylogenetic position of the critically endangered saola (Pseudoryx nghetinhensis) with respect to its placement in Bovina (cattle, bison, and yak) or Bubalina (Asian and African buffaloes). In the present study, G- and C-banding, Ag-staining and FISH with 28S and telomeric probes was undertaken for 17 bovid species. An analysis of these data allowed us to identify 49 structural rearrangements that included autosomes, gonosomes… Expand
Examination of hemiplasy, homoplasy and phylogenetic discordance in chromosomal evolution of the Bovidae.
TLDR
It is concluded that the most probable interpretation for these data is that genuine karyotypic homoplasy predominates, but that hemiplasy (and/or introgression) is a realistic hypothesis for the observed patterns of several shared characters in Bovidae. Expand
Examination of Hemiplasy, Homoplasy and Phylogenetic Discordance
TLDR
It is concluded that the most probable interpretation for these data is that genuine karyotypic homoplasy predominates, but that hemiplasy is a realistic hypothesis for the observed patterns of several shared characters in Bovidae. Expand
Evaluation of the taxonomic status of populations assigned to Phyllomedusa hypochondrialis (Anura, Hylidae, Phyllomedusinae) based on molecular, chromosomal, and morphological approach
TLDR
The results of this study support the need for a thorough revision of the phenotypic features used to discriminate P. azurea and P. hypochondrialis, and recommend the re-evaluation of the taxonomic status of the specimens from the southernmost population known in Brazil. Expand
Interstitial Telomeric Sequences (ITS) and major rDNA mapping reveal insights into the karyotypical evolution of Neotropical leaf frogs species (Phyllomedusa, Hylidae, Anura)
TLDR
It is proposed that the ITSs originated independently during the chromosomal evolution of these species and may provide important insights into the role of these repeats in vertebrate karyotype diversification. Expand
Chromosome Rearrangements in the Tribe Antilopini ( Bovidae )
For a clade that includes Antilope, Gazella, Nanger and Eudorcas (Antilopinae), X;BTA5 translocation is a synapomorphy. Using a combination of fluorescence in situ hybridi zation (FISH) probes andExpand
Molecular Insights into X;BTA5 Chromosome Rearrangements in the Tribe Antilopini (Bovidae)
TLDR
The present study provides the first insight into the X;BTA5 architecture which differs in the species under study, and emphasizes the importance of chromosomal rearrangement verification, particularly, if they are used for phylogenetic analysis. Expand
Molecular cytogenetic characterization of the Amazon River dolphin Inia geoffrensis
TLDR
The boto karyotype demonstrated significant variations in its formula, heterochromatin distribution, and the location of the NOR compared to other cetacean species, contributing to knowledge of the chromosome organization in boto and to a better understanding of karyoevolution in cetACEans. Expand
Nanger, Eudorcas, Gazella, and Antilope form a well-supported chromosomal clade within Antilopini (Bovidae, Cetartiodactyla)
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis of the chromosomal data supports monophyly of Nanger and Eudorcas and suggests an affiliation between A. cervicapra and some of the Gazella species, and renders Gazella paraphyletic and emphasizes a closer relationship between Antilope and Gazella than what has previously been considered. Expand
Comparative Molecular Cytogenetics in Cetartiodactyla
TLDR
This study summarizes the data on chromosome evolution in Cetartiodactyla, mainly derived from molecular cytogenetic studies, and provides several examples of incongruence between traditional morphological and molecular data. Expand
Pattern and timing of diversification of Cetartiodactyla (Mammalia, Laurasiatheria), as revealed by a comprehensive analysis of mitochondrial genomes.
TLDR
The results indicate that the evolutionary history of cetartiodactyls was punctuated by four main phases of rapid radiation during the Cenozoic era, and shows that the high species diversity now observed in the families Bovidae and Cervidae accumulated mainly during the Late Miocene and Plio-Pleistocene.

Hidden morphological support for the phylogenetic placement of Pseudoryx nghetinhensis with bovine bovids: a combined analysis of gross anatomical evidence and DNA sequences from five genes.
TLDR
Combined analyses of the DNA data and published morphological evidence place Pseudoryx with Bovini (cattle and buffaloes), a subclade of Bovinae, while phylogenetic analyses of DNA sequences from five genes are used to test alternatives to the hypothesis that Pseudothyx is a close relative of Caprinae.

TLDR
Pseudoryx is shown to be (i) robustly nested within Bovinae; (ii) strongly associated with Bovini; and (iii) tentatively sharing a sister–group relationship with cattle Bovinis. Expand
A Molecular Cytogenetic Analysis of the Tribe Bovini (Artiodactyla: Bovidae: Bovinae) with an Emphasis on Sex Shromosome Morphology and NOR Distribution
TLDR
Comparisons among representative species of the tribe Bovini and selected outgroup taxa indicate that a knowledge of the chromosomal distribution of NORs among the Bovidae will prove to be phylogenetically informative. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the tribe Bovini (Bovidae, Bovinae) and the taxonomic status of the Kouprey, Bos sauveli Urbain 1937.
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny of the tribe Bovini is performed to determine the taxonomic status of the kouprey and shows that it belongs to the subtribe Bovina, and that three different clades can be evidenced into this group. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of caprines (Bovidae, Antilopinae): the question of their origin and diversification during the Miocene
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses confirm firstly that Pseudoryx and Saiga do not belong to caprines, and secondly, that all tribes classically defined in the literature are not monophyletic, supporting the inclusion of all caprine species into a unique enlarged tribe Caprini sensu lato. Expand
Molecular and morphological phylogenies of ruminantia and the alternative position of the moschidae.
TLDR
A Bayesian relaxed molecular clock approach based on the continuous autocorrelation of evolutionary rates along branches was applied to estimate the divergence ages between the major clades of ruminants, confirming the traditional view that separates Tragulina and Pecora. Expand
Chromosome painting comparison of Leontopithecus chrysomelas (Callitrichine, Platyrrhini) with man and its phylogenetic position
TLDR
The hypothesis of a network (or populational) evolution is proposed to avoid convergence and reversion events, and the karyotype of the last common ancestor to all Callitrichines has been reconstructed. Expand
Phylogenetic relationship among all living species of the genusBubalus based on DNA sequences of the cytochromeb gene
TLDR
The cytochromeb genes of all living species of Bubalus, including the river type and the swamp type of domestic buffaloes, were sequenced to clarify their phylogenetic relationships and demonstrated that the tamaraw (Bubalus mindorensis), endemic to the Philippines, could be classified into the subgenus Bubblealus, not the sub genusAnoa.
