  • Aim Grey wolves (Canis lupus) are widespread across the Holarctic. Here, we test the previously proposed hypothesis that extant North American wolves originate from multiple waves of colonization from Asia. We also test the hypothesis that land connections have been important in the evolutionary history of other isolated wolf populations in Japan. Location Holarctic. Methods We analyse 105 previously published and newly obtained complete mitochondrial genomes from a geographically… CONTINUE READING
