The Suidae are a family of Cetartiodactyla composed of 17 species classified in a minimum of five extant genera that originated at least 20 million years ago. Their success is evident in the multitude of habitats in which they are found as both natural and feral populations in tropical Island Southeast Asia, the high plateau of the Himalayas, Siberia, North Africa, the Pacific Islands, Australia, and the Americas. Morphological and molecular analyses of these species have revealed numerous… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

New material of Sus strozzii (Suidae, Mammalia) from the Early Pleistocene of Italy and a phylogenetic analysis of suines
TLDR
The first phylogenetic analysis of both living and fossil Eurasian and African Suinae is carried out to reconstruct their relationships and the results are in agreement with the literature based on molecular and/or morphological analyses. Expand
Cetartiodactyla: Updating a time-calibrated molecular phylogeny.
TLDR
All mitochondrial genetic data available in GenBank is gathered to build a robust Cetartiodactyla calibrated phylogenetic tree using 21 fossil calibration points and the major lineages showed robust support and families divergence times are congruent with the available fossil evidence and with previously published phylogenetic hypotheses. Expand
Argasid and ixodid systematics: Implications for soft tick evolution and systematics, with a new argasid species list.
TLDR
Estimation of divergence times using molecular dating allowed dissection of phylogeographic patterns for argasid evolution, and the discovery of cryptic species in the subgenera Chiropterargas, Ogadenus and Ornithodoros suggests that cryptic speciation is common within the Argasidae. Expand
Description, molecular characteristics and Wolbachia endosymbionts of Onchocerca borneensis Uni, Mat Udin & Takaoka n. sp. (Nematoda: Filarioidea) from the Bornean bearded pig Sus barbatus Müller (Cetartiodactyla: Suidae) of Sarawak, Malaysia
TLDR
Morphological and molecular characteristics of the new species revealed its close evolutionary relationship with O. d. Expand
Suidae Transition at the Miocene-Pliocene Boundary: a Reassessment of the Taxonomy and Chronology of Propotamochoerus provincialis
The Miocene-Pliocene (Turolian-Ruscinian) transition represents a fundamental interval in the evolution of Euro-Mediterranean paleocommunities. In fact, the paleoenvironmental changes connected withExpand
Paleogenomics of Animal Domestication
Starting with dogs, over 15,000 years ago, the domestication of animals has been central in the development of modern societies. Because of its importance for a range of disciplines – includingExpand
Synchronous diversification of Sulawesi’s iconic artiodactyls driven by recent geological events
TLDR
It is concluded that recent emergence of land on Sulawesi (~1–2 Myr) may have allowed species to expand synchronously, and indicates that the establishment of the highly endemic faunal assemblage on Sulwesi was driven by geological events over the last few million years. Expand
Synchronous diversification of Sulawesi's iconic artiodactyls driven by recent geological events
TLDR
It is concluded that emergence of land on Sulawesi (approx. 1–2 Myr) may have allowed species to expand synchronously and indicate that the establishment of the highly endemic faunal assemblage on Sulwesi was driven by geological events over the last few million years. Expand
The post-Jaramillo persistence of Sus strozzii (Suidae, Mammalia) in Europe: New evidence from the Vallparadís Section (NE Iberian Peninsula) and other coeval sites
Abstract The Vallparadis composite section (VCS) includes the nearby paleontological sites of Cal Guardiola and Vallparadis Estacio (Valles-Penedes Basin, northeastern Iberian Peninsula). The sectionExpand
Genomic analysis on pygmy hog reveals extensive interbreeding during wild boar expansion
TLDR
Analysis of genomes of pygmy hog and related suid species and identifies signals of introgression among these species indicate that the rapid spread of wild boar was facilitated by inter-specific/inter-generic admixtures. Expand

Taxonomy and phylogeny of the Suidae (Mammalia) in Indonesia
TLDR
The phylogeny, evolution and biostratigraphy of the various Javanese species of the genus Sus are discussed and one species from the Island of Flores - Sus heureni - is described as new. Expand
Suid evolution and correlation of African hominid localities
TLDR
Suid data are employed in a refinement of stratigraphic correlations at Omo Shungura, Olduvai, and east of Lake Turkana and in a correlation of East African and South African sites, with important implications for interpretation of hominid evolution. Expand
A NEW SPECIES OF NOTOCHOERUS (ARTIODACTYLA, SUIDAE) FROM THE PLIOCENE OF ETHIOPIA
Abstract A new species of Notochoerus, N. clarki, sp. nov., has been identified from three Pliocene Formations in Ethiopia, the Omo Shungura, Konso, and Bouri (Middle Awash). This taxon, formerlyExpand
A new species of Kolpochoerus (Mammalia: Suidae) from the Pliocene of Central Afar, Ethiopia: Its Taxonomy and Phylogenetic Relationships
TLDR
A new species is described, Kolpochoerus millensis, based on new fossil material from the Woranso-Mille and Gona sites in the Central Afar region of Ethiopia and dated to 3.5–3.8 million years ago, demonstrating clearly the presence of transitional forms in the fossil record. Expand
Listriodontinae (Suidae, Mammalia), their evolution, systematics and distribution in time and space
smaller protuberances above the orbits are found in both males and females. On account of molar similarity, some listriodonts have previously been described erroneously as tapirs. The oldestExpand
Suid evolution and correlation of African hominid localities: an alternative taxonomy.
TLDR
An alternative scheme is suggested, in which 9 genera and 21 species are recognized and the taxonomic and phylogenetic differences do not have any significant effect on the stratigraphic interpretations offered by White and Harris. Expand
New specimens of Propotamochoerus (Suidae, Mammalia) from the late Miocene of the Balkans
We describe new remains of the small Suidae Propotamochoerus from the late Miocene of Macedonia and Bulgaria, which greatly increase the European sample. They are clearly distinct from both theExpand
Borneo and Indochina are major evolutionary hotspots for Southeast Asian biodiversity.
TLDR
Meta-analyses of geological, climatic, and biological data sets are conducted to test which areas have been the sources of long-term biological diversity in SE Asia, particularly in the pre-Miocene, Miocene, and Plio-Pleistocene and whether the respective biota have been dominated by in situ diversification, immigration and/or emigration, or equilibrium dynamics.

Ancestors of Broom's pigs
TLDR
The aim of this paper is to examine the well documented Late Miocene and Pliocene suid fossil record of Eurasia in order to determine whether any of the taxa could be closely related to the other African taxa described by Broom. Expand
The differentiation of bunodont Listriodontinae (Mammalia, Suidae) of Africa: new data from Kalodirr and Moruorot, Kenya
TLDR
The first phylogenetic analysis of the Listriodontinae is performed and supports close relationships between Kubanochoerus and a clade (Eurolistriodon, Listriodon) and Lopholistriodon is the most basal representative of the listriodentine clade. Expand
