We reconstructed the phylogeny of the subfamily Viverrinae (Mammalia, Carnivora, Viverridae) using a approximately 3kb data set in order to reassess timing and patterns of faunal exchanges between Asia and Africa. Maximum parsimony, maximum likelihood, and Bayesian analyses of separated and combined matrices (cytochrome b, transthyretin intron I and IRBP exon 1 [IRBP1]) recovered all the well-supported relationships within feliformian lineages. In addition, IRBP1 supported paraphyly of genus… Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of the Asian palm civets (Hemigalinae & Paradoxurinae, Viverridae, Carnivora).
TLDR
The Viverridae (Mammalia, Carnivora), one of the least studied groups of carnivorans, include two subfamilies of Asian palm civets, and the differentiation of the (Hemigalinae+Paradoxurinae) was inferred to occur in the Late Oligocene/Early Miocene. Expand
Characteristics of the complete mitochondrial genome of the monotypic genus Arctictis (Family: Viverridae) and its phylogenetic implications
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of the Indian subspecies A. b. Expand
Comprehensive species set revealing the phylogeny and biogeography of Feliformia (Mammalia, Carnivora) based on mitochondrial DNA
TLDR
The results suggest that the climate cooling during 30–27 Ma assisted Feliformia migration from the African mainland to Madagascar by creating a short-lived ice bridge across the Mozambique Channel. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the Herpestidae (Mammalia, Carnivora) with a special emphasis on the Asian Herpestes.
TLDR
The results confirmed the paraphyly of the HerPestes genus and other phylogenetic relationships, which previously had only been moderately supported, and the Asian herpestid species were found to form a monophyletic group within the Herpestidae. Expand
Phylogeny of suckers (Teleostei: Cypriniformes: Catostomidae): further evidence of relationships provided by the single-copy nuclear gene IRBP2
TLDR
This study adds to previous investigations to identify single-copynuclear gene markers for diploid and polyploid cypriniforms, and to expand sequences of nuclear IRBP2 gene to 1,933 bp for 23 catostomid species, and synonymize the former three genera intothe latter genus. Expand
Molecular systematics and biogeography of the Hemigalinae civets (Mammalia, Carnivora)
TLDR
The study showed that the banded and Owston’s civets are sister species, and suggested that Hose’'s civet is sister to these two, and showed a high divergence between individuals from the Mentawai Islands and those from Sumatra and Borneo. Expand
A New Basal Caniform (Mammalia: Carnivora) from the Middle Eocene of North America and Remarks on the Phylogeny of Early Carnivorans
TLDR
Lycophocyon hutchisoni illuminates the morphological evolution of early caniforms leading to the origin of crown-group canoids and suggests that loss of the upper third molars and development of well-ossified entotympanics that are firmly fused to the basicranium are not associated with theorigin of the Carnivora as traditionally thought, but instead occurred independently in the Caniformia and the Feliformia. Expand
The distribution of the Malay civet Viverra tangalunga (Carnivora: Viverridae) across Southeast Asia: natural or human‐mediated dispersal?
TLDR
It is suggested that V. tangalunga was transported by humans across Wallace's Line to Sulawesi and the Moluccas, but also to the Philippines and the Natuna Islands, which has shown that human-mediated dispersal can be an important factor in understanding the distribution of some species in this region. Expand
Multiple in-to-Africa dispersals of labeonin fishes (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) revealed by molecular phylogenetic analysis
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships within the Labeoninae, a subfamily of cyprinid fishes distributed in Asia and Africa, were analyzed to investigate the biogeographic processes governing the modern distribution of these Asian and African Cyprinids. Expand
Functional and Systematic Implications of the Postcranial Anatomy of a Late Miocene Feline (Carnivora, Felidae) from Batallones-1 (Madrid, Spain)
TLDR
While middle Miocene felids were likely semi-arboreal forest dwellers, L. vallesiensis would be mostly terrestrial, climbing essentially for protection, and may be related to the climatic changes detected in Eurasia during the late Miocene. Expand

Molecular phylogeny of the carnivora (mammalia): assessing the impact of increased sampling on resolving enigmatic relationships.
TLDR
This study analyzed 76 species of Carnivora using a concatenated sequence of 6243 bp from six genes, representing the most comprehensive sampling yet undertaken for reconstructing the phylogeny of this clade. Expand
Exhaustive sample set among Viverridae reveals the sister-group of felids: the linsangs as a case of extreme morphological convergence within Feliformia

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series B: Biological Sciences
  • 2003
TLDR
The morphotype reappearance from the Asiatic to the African linsangs suggests that the genome of the Feliformia conserved its potential ability of expression for a peculiar adaptive phenotype throughout evolution, in this case arboreality and hypercarnivory in tropical forest. Expand
Genets and ‘genet‐like’ taxa (Carnivora, Viverrinae): phylogenetic analysis, systematics and biogeographic implications
TLDR
A rain forest origin of the genus Genetta supports an ecological transition from the rain forest genets to the savanna genets, a conclusion which may be generalized to the entire study group. Expand
Molecular systematics of the Asiatic Viverridae (Carnivora) inferred from mitochondrial cytochrome b sequence analysis
TLDR
The data suggests the monophyly of the two Viverridae subfamilies endemic to Asia, and the Asiatic viverrids do not appear to have a unique origin. Expand
Out of Asia: mitochondrial DNA evidence for an Oriental origin of tiger frogs, genus Hoplobatrachus.
TLDR
Results corroborated the monophyly of tiger frogs (genus Hoplobatrachus), a genus with representatives in Africa and Asia, and identified the Asian genus Fejervarya as its possible sister group. Expand
Mosaics of convergences and noise in morphological phylogenies: what's in a viverrid-like carnivoran?
TLDR
These results support the removal from the traditionally held Viverridae of several viverrid-like taxa into three distinct families: Nandiniidae, Prionodontidae (Prionodon), and the newly defined Eupleridae (including Cryptoprocta, Fossa, Eupleres plus all "mongoose-like" Malagasy taxa). Expand
Molecular systematics and origin of sociality in mongooses (Herpestidae, Carnivora).
TLDR
The results suggested unexpected phylogenetic relationships: the genus Cynictis is included in the solitary mongoose clade, and the genus Herpestes is polyphyletic, showing the potential benefit of using such characters in phylogeny. 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
From the Old World to the New World: a molecular chronicle of the phylogeny and biogeography of hystricognath rodents.
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships among 23 Hystricognathi species are reconstructed using a nuclear marker, and it is suggested that Chinchillidae and Dinomyidae are sister clades, Abrocomidae is a true Octodontoidea, and Capromyidae, Echimyidae, and Myocastoridae cluster together. Expand
