The newts Triturus vulgaris and Triturus montandoni are sister species that exhibit contrasting levels of intraspecific morphological variation. Triturus vulgaris has a broad Eurasiatic distribution encompassing both formerly glaciated and unglaciated areas and shows substantial morphological differentiation in the southern part of its range, while T. montandoni, confined to the Carpathians, is morphologically uniform. We analysed sequence variation of two mtDNA fragments of the total length of… Expand
The dissection of a Pleistocene refugium: phylogeography of the smooth newt, Lissotriton vulgaris, in the Balkans
TLDR
Dating revealed that very little, if any, pre-Pliocene genetic diversity has survived in Europe, despite an extensive fossil record for this species in the Miocene and Pliocene. Expand
Evolutionary history of Ichthyosaura alpestris (Caudata, Salamandridae) inferred from the combined analysis of nuclear and mitochondrial markers.
TLDR
This study provides a solid, comprehensive background on the evolutionary history of the alpine newt based on the most complete combined mtDNA+nDNA+allozymes dataset to date and identification of instances of discordance across markers that highlight the complexity and dynamism of past and ongoing evolutionary processes in the species. Expand
On glacial refugia, genetic diversity, and microevolutionary processes: deep phylogeographical structure in the endemic newt Lissotriton italicus1
TLDR
It is suggested that the occurrence of phases of allopatric divergence (eventually followed by secondary admixture) could be a common, albeit probably underrated feature in the history of formation of hotspots of intraspecific diversity. Expand
Mitochondrial phylogeography of the Eurasian beaver Castor fiber L.
TLDR
The low level of sequence divergence of the entire cytochrome b gene among six individuals representing six subspecies suggests differentiation during the last glacial period and existence of multiple glacial refugia. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of the alpine newt Mesotriton alpestris (Salamandridae, Caudata), inferred from mtDNA sequences.
TLDR
Extensive sequence divergence, implying greater isolation in multiple refugia, is found within eastern clades, while the western clades seem to have been involved in the colonization of central, western and north-eastern Europe from a hypothetical refugium in central Europe. Expand
Phylogeography of the rare Balkan endemic Martino's vole, Dinaromys bogdanovi, reveals strong differentiation within the western Balkan Peninsula
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the topographical complexity of the Balkans promoted allopatry and isolation on a small geographical scale during interglacial periods, with secondary contact during glacial maxima, suggesting three independent glacial differentiation centres within the western Balkans. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA phylogeography of Lissotriton boscai (Caudata, Salamandridae): evidence for old, multiple refugia in an Iberian endemic
TLDR
The significant genetic structure found is consistent with long‐term survival of populations in allopatric refugia, supporting the ‘Refugia‐within‐refugia’ scenario for southern European peninsulas and suggests that Mediterranean refuges had more relevance for the composition and distribution of present biodiversity patterns than currently acknowledged. Expand
Genetic implications of phylogeographical patterns in the conservation of the boreal wetland butterfly Colias palaeno (Pieridae)
TLDR
The most parsimonious interpretation for the results is the existence of a continuous Wurm glacial distribution in Central Europe, with secondary disjunction during the Last Glacial Maximum into a south-western and a north-eastern fragment and subsequent moderate differentiation. Expand
Evolutionary history of Lissotriton helveticus: multilocus assessment of ancestral vs. recent colonization of the Iberian Peninsula.
TLDR
Diversity patterns among Lissotriton species seem to be defined by four main factors: ancestral distributions, colonization capabilities, interactions with other species and effective population sizes, which explain part of the diversity in patterns of genetic diversity created by glaciations in Western Europe. Expand
One Species, Three Pleistocene Evolutionary Histories: Phylogeography of the Italian Crested Newt, Triturus carnifex
TLDR
The phylogeographic structure observed within T. carnifex and divergence time estimates among its lineages, suggest that responses to Pleistocene environmental changes in this single species have been as diverse as those found previously among several codistributed temperate species combined.

TLDR
The geographical distribution and genealogical relationships between haplotypes from the AI lineage indicate that this group had two glacial refugia, one located in the eastern part of the CB and the other probably in southern Russia. Expand
Pre-pleistocene refugia and differentiation between populations of the caucasian salamander (Mertensiella caucasica).
TLDR
A 350-bp fragment of the mitochondrial cytochrome-b gene was sequenced in the Caucasian salamander, Mertensiella caucasica, representing 10 populations from across its range along the Black Sea coast, showing parallel patterns in body proportions and coloration patterns. Expand
Phylogeography of field voles (Microtus agrestis) in Eurasia inferred from mitochondrial DNA sequences
TLDR
High levels of mtDNA variation indicate relatively large population sizes and subdivisions within phylogeographic groups during the last glaciation of the field vole, and a possible new suture zone in east Europe. Expand

TLDR
The crested newt has a widespread European distribution and encompasses four taxa recently elevated to full species; the levels of divergence found concur with the systematics of the group, but the differentiation within T. carnifex and T. karelini is notable. Expand

Speciation of Iberian diving beetles in Pleistocene refugia (Coleoptera, Dytiscidae)
TLDR
For some taxa Iberian populations were isolated during the Pleistocene long enough to speciate, and apparently did not expand their ranges to recolonize areas north of the Pyrenees, in contradiction to observations from fossil beetles in areas further north. Expand
Population genetic diversity of the endemic Sardinian newt Euproctus platycephalus: implications for conservation
TLDR
Analysis of molecular variance and phylogenetic analyses suggest that the Sardinian population consists of two distinct mtDNA groups, which may reflect ancient isolation and expansion events and implications for the conservation of newt populations are discussed. Expand
Intraspecific allozymatic differentiation reveals the glacial refugia and the postglacial expansions of European Erebia medusa (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae)
TLDR
Allozyme analysis of Erebia medusa over large regions of Europe revealed a significant population differentiation and it is likely for the western lineage that its ice-age distribution showed at least one disjunction in late Wurm with the consequence of further genetic differentiation. Expand
