In the bovid family (Bovidae), the taxonomy of a subfamily Antilopinae is the most complex and contradictory by now. In particular, the ambiguity originates from the fact that the term antelopes is too widely used. Some researchers [1, 2] even propose dividing the bovid into only two families, Bovinae and Antilopinae, of which the former should remain about the same, whereas the latter should encompass all subfamilies of the rank of tribe. Because of the complexity and heterogeneity of the… 
A re-evaluation of phylogenetic relationships within the tribe Tragelaphini (Bovinae: Bovidae), based on complete mitochondrial genomes
TLDR
The results of current study showed that the complete mitochondrial genomes are very useful, powerful, and accurate tools for evaluating the phylogenetic relationships of the members of the tribe Tragelaphini.
A revised phylogeny of Antilopini (Bovidae, Artiodactyla) using combined mitochondrial and nuclear genes.
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny of this poorly understood taxon is provided using combined analyses of mitochondrial (CYTB, COIII, 12S, 16S) and nuclear (KCAS, SPTBN1, PRKCI, MC1R, THYR) genes to explore the influence of data partitioning and different analytical methods, including Bayesian inference, maximum likelihood and maximum parsimony, on the inferred relationships within Antilopini.
EVALUATION OF PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF ANTILOPINI AND OREOTRAGINI TRIBES (BOVIDAE: ARTIODACTYLA) BASED ON COMPLETE MITOCHONDRIAL GENOMES
TLDR
The results indicated that the complete mitochondrial genomes are very useful, powerful, and accurate tools for evaluating the phylogenetic relationships of animals and biosystematics studies and can meticulously reconstruct and modify the animal classification.
The evolution of body size, horn shape and social behaviour in crown Antilopini - an ancestral character state analysis
TLDR
Using a species level phylogeny of this group, the results for the reconstruction of ancestral social organisation of the dwarf species are inconclusive, but the small body size and short horns of Ourebia, Raphicerus, Dorcatragus, and Madoqua are most likely derived traits.
ADAPTIVE EVOLUTION AND PHYLOGENETIC UTILITY OF ACR (ACROSIN), A RAPIDLY EVOLVING MAMMALIAN FERTILIZATION GENE
TLDR
Impressive congruence with independent DNA data sets suggests that Acr, and perhaps additional rapidly evolving reproductive molecules, show promise for resolving evolutionary radiations of mammals.
Evolution of weaponry in female bovids
TLDR
Comparative phylogenetic analyses show that females are significantly more likely to bear horns in bovids that are conspicuous due to large body size and living in open habitats than inconspicuous species living in closed habitats or that are small, and suggest that conspicuousness and territoriality hypotheses may explain other instances of female cranial weaponry in other horned ruminants.
The function of contrasting pelage markings in artiodactyls
TLDR
It is concluded that contrasting pelage marks have a number of functions in this taxon including pursuit deterrence, intraspecific signaling, and possibly even crypsis.

The tribal radiation of the family Bovidae (Artiodactyla) and the evolution of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene.
TLDR
The nucleotide sequence of the complete mitochondrial cytochrome b gene has been determined and compared for 51 species of the family Bovidae and 10 potential pecoran and tragulid outgroups and depicts a major split within Bovids.
The subfamilies and tribes of the family Bovidae
TLDR
The crucial finding is that Caprinae link with African antelopes and that Antilopini are more remote, which is quite closely compatible with the phenetic distance analysis of the same data, provided the latter is read as if primitive or early bovids share more similarities than divergently advanced ones and hence associate more closely.
