The Pleistocene Epoch has been frequently cited as a period of intense speciation for a significant portion of temperate continental biotas. To critically assess the role of Pleistocene glaciations on the evolution of the freshwater fish clade Micropterus, we use a phylogenetic analysis of complete gene sequences from two mitochondrial genes (cytochrome b and ND2), and a fossil calibration of the molecular clock to estimate ages of speciation events and rates of diversification. The absence of… Expand
Glacial cycles as an allopatric speciation pump in north‐eastern American freshwater fishes
TLDR
It is shown that the eastern Great Lakes drainage represents a multispecies suture zone for glacial lineages of freshwater fishes with variable levels of genetic divergence and that Pleistocene glacial cycles can be viewed as a ‘speciation pump’ that played a predominant role in generating biodiversity.

Old divergences in a boreal bird supports long-term survival through the Ice Ages
TLDR
The Arctic Warbler separated into three main clades in close succession around the Pliocene/Pleistocene border, with the two northern clades diverging last. Expand
Evolutionary Drivers of Diversification and Distribution of a Southern Temperate Stream Fish Assemblage: Testing the Role of Historical Isolation and Spatial Range Expansion
TLDR
The Miocene-Pliocene major sea-level transgression and the resultant isolation of populations in upland refugia appear to have driven widespread allopatric divergence within the three genera, which is proposed to have facilitated range expansion of lineages that currently occur across isolated river systems.

Body Shape Evolution in Sunfishes: Divergent Paths to Accelerated Rates of Speciation in the Centrarchidae
TLDR
It is found that centrarchids partitioned body shape early in their evolutionary history, a pattern that is largely associated with expansion into divergent foraging niches and elaboration of sexual ornamentation. Expand
Ice sheets promote speciation in boreal birds

TLDR
Comparisons of coalescence times of pairs of avian species belonging to superspecies complexes from the high–latitude boreal forest with those of sub–boreal and tropical avifaunas of the New World show direct evidence that speciation was commonly initiated during recent glacial periods. Expand
The ghost of introduction past: Spatial and temporal variability in the genetic diversity of invasive smallmouth bass
TLDR
A three‐way comparison of the genetic diversity of native (historic and contemporary) and invasive (contemporary) smallmouth bass (Micropterus dolomieu) populations suggests that both contemporary populations experienced a recent genetic bottleneck. Expand
Discovery and validation of gene‐linked diagnostic SNP markers for assessing hybridization between Largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) and Florida bass (M. floridanus)
Efforts to improve recreational fisheries have included widespread stocking of Micropterus floridanus outside its native range of peninsular Florida. Hybridization of Florida bass (M. floridanus)Expand
Genetic differentiation over small spatial scales in the absence of physical barriers in an Australian rainforest stream fish
This study investigated the genetic population structure of the regionally endemic rainforest fish Cairnsichthys rhombosomoides by analysing sequence variation in the mitochondrial control region.Expand

Intraspecific phylogeography of Percina evides (Percidae: Etheostomatinae): an additional test of the Central Highlands pre‐Pleistocene vicariance hypothesis
TLDR
Pleistocene vicariance hypothesis is tested with a phylogeographic analysis of the percid species Percina evides, which is widely distributed in several disjunct areas of the Central Highlands, and recovery of very limited mitochondrial DNA polymorphism and lack of phyloGEographic structuring support a hypothesis of dispersal during or following the Pleistocene.

INTRASPECIFIC PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF NORTH AMERICAN HIGHLAND FISHES: A TEST OF THE PLEISTOCENE VICARIANCE HYPOTHESIS
TLDR
The distribution and mtDNA relationships among subspecies of Erimystax dissimilis are not consistent with Pleistocene vicariance, but relationships among Appalachian haplotypes are consistent with the late Pleistsocene integration of the modern Ohio River system. Expand
LOWER VERTEBRATES FROM AN ARIKAREEAN (EARLIEST MIOCENE) FAUNA NEAR THE TOLEDO BEND DAM, NEWTON COUNTY, TEXAS
TLDR
A recently discovered vertebrate fossil-bearing locality in the Fleming Formation of easternmost Texas has revealed a highly diverse fauna that contains a minimum of 44 early Miocene vertebrate taxa, document the rare preservation of a forested subtropical to tropical coastal lowland paleoenvironment and provide evidence to imply that separation into mid-continent and coastal plain paleobiogeographic provinces had not yet occurred.

Evolution of NADH dehydrogenase subunit 2 in east African cichlid fish.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the sequences shows that the mtDNA variation in Lake Malawi cichlids is nested monophyletically within the range of variation shown by Tanganyikan cichLids, and Divergences among tribes are consistent with an intralacustrine radiation within the past 10 million years.

The current major hypotheses are outlined, predictions relevant to integrated molecular approaches are developed, and the current evidence is evaluated, focusing on central African, Australian, and South American systems. Expand

Cytonuclear Introgressive Swamping and Species Turnover of Bass After an Introduction
TLDR
The cytonuclear genetic data indicate that within 10-15 years following the unauthorized introduction, a reversal in these species' abundances has occurred and that more than 99% of the population sample analyzed here consists of spotted bass or products of interspecific hybridization. Expand
The molecular phylogeographic bridge between deep and shallow history in continental biotas.

TLDR
Molecular sequences in extant taxa can be used to infer speciation and biogeographic history in deep time, as well as changes in population distributions produced by range shifts in shallow time, and thus provide a basis for constructing bridges between historicalBiogeographic, paleoecological and ecological biogeographical perspectives.

Detecting the Geographical Pattern of Speciation from Species‐Level Phylogenies
TLDR
It is found that relatively recent speciation events are characterized by greater asymmetry in range size between sister clades than expected under the null models, providing potential support for the peripatric model of speciation. Expand
Phylogenetic interpretation of ontogenetic change: sorting out the actual and artefactual in an empirical case study of centrarchid fishes
TLDR
It is concluded that the ontogenetic criterion is not a reliable indicator of phylogenetic polarity and it is recommended that alternative classification schemes be pursued. Expand
