    Fossils matter: improved estimates of divergence times in Pinus reveal older diversification

    The taxonomy of pines (genus Pinus) is widely accepted and a robust gene tree based on entire plastome sequences exists. However, there is a large discrepancy in estimated divergence times of major pine clades am...

    A genetic chronology for the Indian Subcontinent points to heavily sex-biased dispersals

    India is a patchwork of tribal and non-tribal populations that speak many different languages from various language families. Indo-European, spoken across northern and central India, and also in Pakistan and B...

    Low genetic but high morphological variation over more than 1000 km coastline refutes omnipresence of cryptic diversity in marine nematodes

    The resilience of ecosystems to negative impacts is generally higher when high gene flow, species diversity and genetic diversity are present. Population genetic studies are suitable to investigate genetic div...

    Implications of hepatitis C virus subtype 1a migration patterns for virus genetic sequencing policies in Italy

    In-depth phylogeographic analysis can reveal migration patterns relevant for public health planning. Here, as a model, we focused on the provenance, in the current Italian HCV subtype 1a epidemic, of the NS3 r...

    Phylogeography of red muntjacs reveals three distinct mitochondrial lineages

    The members of the genus Muntiacus are of particular interest to evolutionary biologists due to their extreme chromosomal rearrangements and the ongoing discussions about the number of living species. Red muntjac...

    Two new genera of songbirds represent endemic radiations from the Shola Sky Islands of the Western Ghats, India

    A long-standing view of Indian biodiversity is that while rich in species, there are few endemics or in-situ radiations within the subcontinent. One exception is the Western Ghats biodiversity hotspot, an isol...

    Cryptic diversity, geographical endemism and allopolyploidy in NE Pacific seaweeds

    Molecular markers are revealing a much more diverse and evolutionarily complex picture of marine biodiversity than previously anticipated. Cryptic and/or endemic marine species are continually being found thro...

    Evolutionary history of Podarcis tiliguerta on Corsica and Sardinia

    Podarcis tiliguerta is a wall lizard endemic to the Mediterranean islands of Corsica and Sardinia. Previous findings of high mtDNA and morphological diversity have led to the suggestio...
