Abstract. The ocelot (Leopardus pardalis) and margay (L. wiedii) are sister-species of Neotropical cats which evolved from a lineage that migrated into South America during the formation of the Panamanian land bridge 3–5 million years ago. Patterns of population genetic divergence of each species were studied by phylogenetic analyses of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) control region sequences in individuals sampled across the distribution of these taxa. Abundant genetic diversity and remarkably… 
Phylogeography, population history and conservation genetics of jaguars (Panthera onca, Mammalia, Felidae)
TLDR
The genetic diversity, population structure and demographic history of jaguars across their geographical range are investigated by analysing 715 base pairs of the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) control region and 29 microsatellite loci in ≈40 individuals sampled from Mexico to southern Brazil.
Biogeographically dynamic genetic structure bridging two continents in the monotypic Central American rodent Ototylomys phyllotis
TLDR
The results support monophyly of the genus Ototylomys and identify three major phylogeographical lineages within O. phyllotis that are linked to its diversification and coincide with the main geological features that shaped Middle America.
Phylogeographic analyses of the pampas cat (Leopardus colocola; Carnivora, Felidae) reveal a complex demographic history
TLDR
H phylogeographic analyses encompassing most of the pampas cat’s distribution are reported, using a novel dataset comprising 2,143 bp of the mitogenome, along with previously reported mtDNA sequences, which revealed strong population strutucture and supported a west-to-east colonization process in this species’ history.
Molecular Diversity and Phylogeography of the Asian Leopard Cat, Felis bengalensis, Inferred from Mitochondrial and Y-Chromosomal DNA Sequences
TLDR
The results indicate that the diversity of southern populations is higher and that genetic differentiation among northern local populations reflects past geographical isolation.
Disparate phylogeographic patterns of molecular genetic variation in four closely related South American small cat species
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses using mitochondrial DNA sequences revealed monophyletic clustering of the four species, plus evidence of natural hybridization between L. tigrinus and L. colocolo in areas of range overlap and discrete population subdivisions reflecting geographical isolation, and the lack of geographical substructure in O. geoffroyi.
Phylogeography and population history of the crab‐eating fox (Cerdocyon thous)
TLDR
Evidence is reported for a major north–south demographic discontinuity that seems to have marked the history of the Atlantic Forest biota in the crab‐eating fox.
Phylogeography and population history of Leopardus guigna, the smallest American felid
TLDR
This is the first study of the genetic structure of this threatened species throughout its whole geographic range and revealed a clear phylogeographic pattern with moderate separation between northern and southern Chilean populations supporting recognized subspecific partitions based on morphology.
The differential effect of lowlands on the phylogeographic pattern of a Mesoamerican montane species (Lepidocolaptes affinis, Aves: Furnariidae).
TLDR
The phylogeographic pattern indicated the Nicaragua Depression has prevented gene flow whereas populations on the two sides of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec did not show strong genetic differentiation and the population of the Sierra Madre Oriental was composed of two different lineages.
Molecular evidence for a recent demographic expansion in the puma (Puma concolor) (Mammalia, Felidae)
TLDR
The estimated demographic history of puma supports the interpretation that pumas suffered a severe demographic decline in the Late Pleistocene throughout their distribution, followed by population expansion and re-colonization of the range, initiating from South America.

Phylogeography and pleistocene evolution in the North American black bear.
TLDR
Congruence between the pattern of diversity observed in black bears and patterns of forest refuge formation during the Pleistocene supports earlier speculation that Pleistsocene forest fragmentations underlie a common pattern in the phylogeography of North American forest taxa.
Hierarchical genetic structure and gene flow in three sympatric species of Amazonian rodents
TLDR
Although gene flow estimates are high, the pattern of Nm as a function of geographical distance suggests that this species experienced a more recent invasion of the region and is still in genetic disequilibrium under its current demographic conditions.
Tracking the evolution of the elusive Andean mountain cat (Oreailurus jacobita) from mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
It is suggested that the Andean mountain cat diverged from a common ancestor with the ocelot (Leopardus paradalis) and margay and exhibits moderate levels of genetic variation.
High Variability for Control-Region Sequences in a Marine Mammal: Implications for Conservation and Biogeography of Steller Sea Lions (Eumetopias jubatus)
TLDR
Patterns of macrogeographic variation indicate the presence of two genetically differentiated populations of Steiler sea lions, which likely diverged as a result of separation in different glacial refugia and are paraphyletic with respect to mtDNA.
Phylogeographic Subspecies Recognition in Leopards (Panthera pardus): Molecular Genetic Variation
TLDR
The incorporation of precise definitions for taxonomic units into wildlife legislation has necessitated the reevaluation of the taxonomy of endangered and threatened species, and it is recommended that subspecific leopard taxonomy be revised to comprise eight subspecies.
Rapid Rate of Control-Region Evolution in Pacific Butterflyfishes (Chaetodontidae)
TLDR
Despite strong constraints on sequence change, phylogenetic information was preserved in the group of recently differentiated species and supported the clustering of sequences into three major mtDNA groupings.
Molecular phylogeny of mitochondrial cytochrome b and 12S rRNA sequences in the Felidae: ocelot and domestic cat lineages.
TLDR
Phylogenetic reconstruction supports more recent, intralineage associations but fails to completely resolve interlineage relationships, and implications of the relative recency of felid evolution, presence of ancestral polymorphisms, and influence of outgroups in placement of the topological root are discussed.
GENE GENEALOGY AND DIFFERENTIATION AMONG ARBOREAL SPINY RATS (RODENTIA: ECHIMYIDAE) OF THE AMAZON BASIN: A TEST OF THE RIVERINE BARRIER HYPOTHESIS
TLDR
Genealogical analyses and broader scale phylogeographic patterns of this species show that both clades have relationships to areas well outside the Rio Juruá basin, which suggests that the basin represents a relatively recent point of invasion between two more broadly distributed and differentiated geographic units of the species.
Molecular evolution of mitochondrial 12S RNA and cytochrome b sequences in the pantherine lineage of Felidae.
TLDR
DNA sequence comparisons of two mitochondrial DNA genes were used to infer phylogenetic relationships among 17 Felidae species, notably 15 in the previously described pantherine lineage, and suggested the recognition of a recently evolved monophyletic genus Panthera.
Worldwide patterns of mitochondrial DNA differentiation in the harbor seal (Phoca vitulina).
TLDR
The results suggest that harbor seals are regionally philopatric, on the scale of several hundred kilometers, however, genetic discontinuities may exist, even between neighboring populations such as those on the Scottish and east English coasts or the east and west Baltic.
