Abstract Multilocus genealogical approaches are still uncommon in phylogeography and historical demography, fields which have been dominated by microsatellite markers and mitochondrial DNA, particularly for vertebrates. Using 30 newly developed anonymous nuclear loci, we estimated population divergence times and ancestral population sizes of three closely related species of Australian grass finches (Poephila) distributed across two barriers in northern Australia. We verified that substitution… 
QUANTIFYING THE PLEISTOCENE HISTORY OF THE OAK GALL PARASITOID CECIDOSTIBA FUNGOSA USING TWENTY INTRON LOCI
TLDR
The results suggest that there is significant information in the minimal samples currently analyzable with maximum likelihood methods, and that similar methods could be applied to multiple species to test alternative models of assemblage evolution.
Evolutionary history of the critically endangered Cozumel dwarf carnivores inferred from mitochondrial DNA analyses
TLDR
Although it is likely that the island taxa colonized Cozumel before the Mayan peoples populated the island, the hypothesis that colonization by these taxa was not human facilitated is unable to definitively reject.
Divergence Across Australia's Carpentarian Barrier: Statistical Phylogeography of the Red-Backed Fairy Wren (Malurus melanocephalus)
TLDR
Multilocus coalescent analysis suggests that the red-backed fairy wren population was separated from the other two regions approximately 0.27 million years ago, and that significant gene flow between the ER and the CY populations suggests geographic continuity in eastern Australia.
Phylogeography and geno-phenotypic discordance in a widespread Australian bird, the Variegated Fairy-wren, Malurus lamberti (Aves: Maluridae)
TLDR
The Variegated Fairy-wren Malurus lamberti as currently construed occurs across almost all of mainland Australia, and phylogeographic analyses of one mitochondrial and eight nuclear DNA markers reconstruct the bird’s history, especially for its arid and tropical populations.
DIVERSITY AND DEMOGRAPHY IN BERINGIA: MULTILOCUS TESTS OF PALEODISTRIBUTION MODELS REVEAL THE COMPLEX HISTORY OF ARCTIC GROUND SQUIRRELS
TLDR
The population history of the arctic ground squirrel is quantified, highlighting the complementary perspectives on species’ histories that multiple lines of evidence provide, and the utility of multilocus data for resolving complex population histories relevant to understanding effects of climate change.
Population Differentiation, Historical Demography and Evolutionary Relationships Among Widespread Common Chaffinch Populations (Fringilla coelebs ssp.)
TLDR
The results suggest European ancestry for the common chaffinch and Atlantic islands appear to have been colonized sequentially from north to south via Azores.
A species assemblage approach to comparative phylogeography of birds in southern Australia
TLDR
A novel approach to investigating the divergence history of biomes and their component species using single-locus data prior to investing in multilocus data, using the power of multitaxa coalescent analyses as an efficient means of generating a foundation for further, targeted research.
Phylogeography of the iconic Australian red-tailed black-cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus banksii) and implications for its conservation
TLDR
Thousands of genome-wide single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and mitochondrial DNA are utilized to provide the first genetic assessment of the Australian red-tailed black-cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus banksii), a widespread bird species comprising populations of varying conservation concern.
Next-Generation Museomics Disentangles One of the Largest Primate Radiations
TLDR
Having produced the largest mitochondrial DNA data set from museum specimens, this work documents how NGS technologies can “unlock” museum collections, thereby helping to unravel the tree-of-life.

GENETIC EVIDENCE ON THE DEMOGRAPHY OF SPECIATION IN ALLOPATRIC DOLPHIN SPECIES
TLDR
The intermixed genealogical patterns observed between these dolphin sister species are highly probable only under an extended history of large population size, and a parsimonious model for the Pleistocene origin of these distributions would not involve rare breaches of a constant dispersal barrier by small colonization propagules.
Population structure in the American oyster as inferred by nuclear gene genealogies.
TLDR
No simple explanation can account for the great variety of population genetic patterns across loci displayed by American oysters, and this study provides an empirical demonstration that different sequences of DNA within the same organismal pedigree can have quite different phylogeographic histories.
PERSPECTIVE: GENE DIVERGENCE, POPULATION DIVERGENCE, AND THE VARIANCE IN COALESCENCE TIME IN PHYLOGEOGRAPHIC STUDIES
TLDR
It is shown that phylogeographic studies in vertebrates suggest that divergence of alleles in ancestral species can comprise from less than 10% to over 50% of the total divergence between sister species, suggesting that the problem of ancestral polymorphism in dating population divergence can be substantial.
GENETIC STRUCTURE AND MALE‐MEDIATED GENE FLOW IN THE GHOST BAT (MACRODERMA GIGAS)
TLDR
The high level of population subdivision across the range of the ghost bat contrasts with evidence for high gene flow in other chiropteran species and may be due to narrow physiological tolerances and consequent limited availability of roosts for ghost bats, particularly across the subtropical and relatively arid regions.
NEW MITOCHONDRIAL DNA DATA AFFIRM THE IMPORTANCE OF PLEISTOCENE SPECIATION IN NORTH AMERICAN BIRDS

TLDR
It is concluded that the entire Pleistocene, including the last two glacial cycles (<250,000 years ago), was important in speciations of modern North American birds.
mtDNA diversity in rhesus monkeys reveals overestimates of divergence time and paraphyly with neighboring species.
TLDR
It is concluded that intraspecific mtDNA diversity is substantial in at least some primate species, and the reliability of hominoid mtDNA phylogenies, based as they are on one or a few representatives of each species, in an already depauperate superfamily of primates is questioned.
Long-distance gene flow in a cooperative breeder detected in genealogies of mitochondrial DNA sequences

TLDR
A continent-wide survey of DNA sequence diversity in the most variable part of the mitochondrial (mt) genome among 163 grey-crowned babblers (Pomatostomus temporalis) throughout Australia and Papua New Guinea suggested that genes from unrelated migrants contribute to genetic diversity in 5 of 50 social groups, occasionally producing large intragroup sequence differences.
Likelihood and Bayes estimation of ancestral population sizes in hominoids using data from multiple loci.
TLDR
Analysis of sequence data from three species under a finite-site nucleotide substitution model suggests that typical data sets contain useful information about the ancestral population sizes and that it is advantageous to analyze data of several species simultaneously.
Reconciling paleodistribution models and comparative phylogeography in the Wet Tropics rainforest land snail Gnarosophia bellendenkerensis (Brazier 1875)
TLDR
An alternative approach in which spatial models of predicted species distributions under serial paleoclimates are compared with a molecular phylogeography, in this case for a snail endemic to the rainforests of North Queensland, Australia, is developed.
INFERRING PHYLOGENIES FROM mtDNA VARIATION: MITOCHONDRIAL‐GENE TREES VERSUS NUCLEAR‐GENE TREES
  • W. Moore

  • 1995
TLDR
An accurately resolved gene tree may not be congruent with the species tree because of lineage sorting of ancestral polymorphisms, but a survey of mtDNA‐haplotype diversity in 34 species of birds indicates that coalescence is generally very recent, which suggests that coalescent times are typically much shorter than internodal branch lengths of the species Tree, and that sorting of mt DNA lineages is not likely to confound the species trees.
