Dinoponera lucida (Formicidae; Ponerinae) is an extinction-threatened species of ant which is endemic in the central corridor of the Atlantic Forest. We used mitochondrial sequences of the Cox1, Cox2 and Cytb genes in order to infer some aspects of the evolutionary history and phylogeography of this ant. High genetic divergence and population structure were observed for the whole species. The current pattern of D. lucida diversity seems to be shaped during different geological times: middle… Expand

Comparative phylogeography and palaeomodelling reveal idiosyncratic responses to climate changes in Neotropical paper wasps
The impact of the broad disjunction between Amazonia and the Atlantic Forest on biodiversity has been the theme of several discussions in recent decades. Here, we evaluate the effects of dependenceExpand
Comparative phylogeographic and demographic analyses reveal a congruent pattern of sister relationship between bird populations of the northern and south-central Atlantic Forest.
TLDR
The results support the existence of a Pleistocene refugium driving current genetic diversity in the PCE, thereby rejecting the role of the São Francisco River as a primary barrier for population divergence and finding that connections with Amazonia also played a significant role in assembling the PCe avifauna through subsequent migration events.

Integrating Paleodistribution Models and Phylogeography in the Grass-Cutting Ant Acromyrmex striatus (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in Southern Lowlands of South America
TLDR
The phylogeography and historical demography of populations of Acromyrmex striatus, a leaf-cutting ant species restricted to the open plains of South America, showed that populations of A. striatus had remained constant throughout its evolutionary history. Expand
Phylogeography of the sand dune ant Mycetophylax simplex along the Brazilian Atlantic Forest coast: remarkably low mtDNA diversity and shallow population structure
TLDR
This work investigates the distribution of genetic diversity in the endemic sand dune ant Mycetophylax simplex across its known range along the Brazilian coast, with the aim of contributing to the understanding of alternative phylogeographic patterns. Expand
A short-range endemic species from south-eastern Atlantic Rain Forest shows deep signature of historical events: phylogeography of harvestmen Acutisoma longipes (Arachnida: Opiliones)
TLDR
The findings corroborate that harvestmen are a suitable group for the study of ancient biogeographic events in the Atlantic Rain Forest, even at small-scale ranges. Expand
Pleistocene climate changes shaped the population structure of Partamona seridoensis (Apidae, Meliponini), an endemic stingless bee from the Neotropical dry forest
TLDR
No evidence of a potential geographic barrier in the present that could explain the diversification between the P. seridoensis haplogroups was found, and the Bayesian Skyline Plot did not reveal any substantial fluctuation in effective population size in either haplogroup. Expand
Phylogeographic structure is strong in the Atlantic Forest; predictive power of correlative paleodistribution models, not always
TLDR
The results demonstrate poor predictive ability of climate-based models of C. carvalhoi under current climatic conditions, suggesting that factors such as biotic interactions or dispersal ability may be playing a central role in defining this species distribution – both now and in the recent past. Expand
Barriers, rather than refugia, underlie the origin of diversity in toads endemic to the Brazilian Atlantic Forest
TLDR
Comparison of the results with those of other AF taxa indicates organismal specific responses to moderate shifts in habitat and that multiple refuges may constitute a more realistic model for diversification of Atlantic Forest biota. Expand
Phylogeography of ants from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest
TLDR
This study examines a phylogenomic dataset of five ant species to investigate phylogeographical patterns across the Brazilian Atlantic Forest and suggests that distinct groups may have responded idiosyncratically to the climatic changes that took place in this region. Expand
Evidence of at least two evolutionary lineages in Melipona subnitida (Apidae, Meliponini) suggested by mtDNA variability and geometric morphometrics of forewings
TLDR
The population variability of M. subnitida is characterized using geometric morphometrics of the forewing and cytochrome c oxidase I gene fragment sequencing and molecular clock data suggest that this differentiation may have begun in the middle Pleistocene, approximately 396 kya. Expand

TLDR
Analysis of gene flow and divergence time estimates suggest that the endangered subspecies atlanticus (from northeastern Brazil) can be considered a full species under the general lineage species concept. Expand
Extreme population divergence and conservation implications for the rare endangered Atlantic Forest sloth, Bradypus torquatus (Pilosa: Bradypodidae)
TLDR
It is indicated that devastation of the Atlantic Forest leads to an unrecoverable loss of genetic diversity in this species, and populations separated by more than 100 km should be considered different management units. Expand

TLDR
A hypothesis of species limits for G. darwinii is presented, based on concordant lines of evidence including cytogenetic and mtDNA analyses, and two chromosome races are interpreted to be full species on the basis of a number of empirical criteria. Expand
PHYLOGEOGRAPHIC STRUCTURE OF THE FIRE ANT SOLENOPSIS INVICTA IN ITS NATIVE SOUTH AMERICAN RANGE: ROLES OF NATURAL BARRIERS AND HABITAT CONNECTIVITY
TLDR
A major genetic break between S. invicta mtDNA haplotypes that coincides with the Mesopotamia wetlands region of South America, resulting in two higher level nested clade groupings is revealed and contrasting patterns of genetic differentiation within these two major groups are identified. Expand
Evolutionary diversification of spiny rats (genus Trinomys, Rodentia: Echimyidae) in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil
TLDR
The proposed Late Pleistocene refugia in the Atlantic Forest cannot account for the divergence of the clades of Trinomys, but most likely shaped the modern distribution of species. Expand
Phylogeography and population structure in the ant Formica exsecta (Hymenoptera, Formicidae) across Eurasia as reflected by mitochondrial DNA variation and microsatellites
TLDR
The genealogy and the haplotype frequencies suggest postglacial colonization of Siberia from a single refugial source of limited size, similar to findings in diverse array of species associated with forest in Eurasia. Expand

TLDR
The karyotype variation detected in D. lucida suggested that the original population has previously been divided into two allopatric populations distributed in two different refugial areas of Atlantic rain forest in the early Quaternary. Expand
Geographical variation in genetic structure of an Atlantic Coastal Forest frog reveals regional differences in habitat stability
TLDR
Analysis of population genetic structure of a frog endemic to the region and a Bayesian population‐level phylogeny of the Thoropa miliaris species complex suggest that the high diversity of its fauna and flora resulted from a combination of climatic and geologic events from the Pliocene to the present.
