Using a multi-gene approach to infer the complicated phylogeny and evolutionary history of lorises (Order Primates: Family Lorisidae).

Rachel A Munds, Chelsea L Titus, Lori S Eggert, Gregory E Blomquist,

Extensive phylogenetic studies have found robust phylogenies are modeled by using a multi-gene approach and sampling from the majority of the taxa of interest. Yet, molecular studies focused on the lorises, a cryptic primate family, have often relied on one gene, or just mitochondrial DNA, and many were unable to ... Read more >>

Spatial genetic structure in American black bears (Ursus americanus): female philopatry is variable and related to population history.

Thea V Kristensen, Emily E Puckett, Erin L Landguth, Jerrold L Belant, John T Hast, Colin Carpenter, Jaime L Sajecki, Jeff Beringer, Myron Means, John J Cox, Lori S Eggert, Don White, Kimberly G Smith,

Previously, American black bears (Ursus americanus) were thought to follow the pattern of female philopatry and male-biased dispersal. However, recent studies have identified deviations from this pattern. Such flexibility in dispersal patterns can allow individuals greater ability to acclimate to changing environments. We explored dispersal and spatial genetic relatedness patterns ... Read more >>

The influence of breeding phenology on the genetic structure of four pond-breeding salamanders.

Jacob J Burkhart, William E Peterman, Emily R Brocato, Kimberly M Romine, M Madeline S Willis, Brittany H Ousterhout, Thomas L Anderson, Dana L Drake, Freya E Rowland, Raymond D Semlitsch, Lori S Eggert,

Understanding metapopulation dynamics requires knowledge about local population dynamics and movement in both space and time. Most genetic metapopulation studies use one or two study species across the same landscape to infer population dynamics; however, using multiple co-occurring species allows for testing of hypotheses related to different life history strategies. ...

Reducing bias in population and landscape genetic inferences: the effects of sampling related individuals and multiple life stages.

William Peterman, Emily R Brocato, Raymond D Semlitsch, Lori S Eggert,

In population or landscape genetics studies, an unbiased sampling scheme is essential for generating accurate results, but logistics may lead to deviations from the sample design. Such deviations may come in the form of sampling multiple life stages. Presently, it is largely unknown what effect sampling different life stages can ... Read more >>

Phylogeographic Analyses of American Black Bears (Ursus americanus) Suggest Four Glacial Refugia and Complex Patterns of Postglacial Admixture.

Emily E Puckett, Paul D Etter, Eric A Johnson, Lori S Eggert,

Studies of species with continental distributions continue to identify intraspecific lineages despite continuous habitat. Lineages may form due to isolation by distance, adaptation, divergence across barriers, or genetic drift following range expansion. We investigated lineage diversification and admixture within American black bears (Ursus americanus) across their range using 22 k ... Read more >>

María José Ruiz-López, Ryan J Monello, Stephanie G Schuttler, Stacey L Lance, Matthew E Gompper, Lori S Eggert,

Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) variability plays a key role in pathogen resistance, but its relative importance compared to environmental and demographic factors that also influence resistance is unknown. We analyzed the MHC II DRB exon 2 for 165 raccoons (Procyon lotor) in Missouri (USA). For each animal we also determined ... Read more >>

Trap array configuration influences estimates and precision of black bear density and abundance.

Clay M Wilton, Emily E Puckett, Jeff Beringer, Beth Gardner, Lori S Eggert, Jerrold L Belant,

Spatial capture-recapture (SCR) models have advanced our ability to estimate population density for wide ranging animals by explicitly incorporating individual movement. Though these models are more robust to various spatial sampling designs, few studies have empirically tested different large-scale trap configurations using SCR models. We investigated how extent of trap ... Read more >>

Within-river gene flow in the hellbender (Cryptobranchus alleganiensis) and implications for restorative release

Sheena M Feist, Jeffrey T Briggler, Jeffrey B Koppelman, Lori S Eggert,

Understanding how populations are genetically and demographically connected is beneficial for species management, since gene flow and dispersal contribute to genetic diversity and population persistence. For hellbenders (Cryptobranchus alleganiensis), an aquatic salamander species experiencing dramatic declines in population size, fine-scale (i.e. within river) patterns of genetic diversity and gene flow ...

Ecological resistance surfaces predict fine-scale genetic differentiation in a terrestrial woodland salamander.

William E Peterman, Grant M Connette, Raymond D Semlitsch, Lori S Eggert,

Landscape genetics has seen tremendous advances since its introduction, but parameterization and optimization of resistance surfaces still poses significant challenges. Despite increased availability and resolution of spatial data, few studies have integrated empirical data to directly represent ecological processes as genetic resistance surfaces. In our study, we determine the landscape ... Read more >>

Influence of drift and admixture on population structure of American black bears (Ursus americanus) in the Central Interior Highlands, USA, 50 years after translocation.

Emily E Puckett, Thea V Kristensen, Clay M Wilton, Sara B Lyda, Karen V Noyce, Paula M Holahan, David M Leslie, Jeff Beringer, Jerrold L Belant, Don White, Lori S Eggert,

Bottlenecks, founder events, and genetic drift often result in decreased genetic diversity and increased population differentiation. These events may follow abundance declines due to natural or anthropogenic perturbations, where translocations may be an effective conservation strategy to increase population size. American black bears (Ursus americanus) were nearly extirpated from the ... Read more >>

Judith D Toms, Lori S Eggert, Wayne J Arendt, John Faaborg,

While testing genetic sexing techniques in Ovenbirds (Seiurus aurocapilla), we found a genetic polymorphism in the ATP5A1 gene in 38% of individuals. The Z' allele included changes in both intronic and exonic portions of the sequenced region, but there was no evidence that this changed the resulting ATP synthase product. ... Read more >>

Resolving the evolution of extant and extinct ruminants with high-throughput phylogenomics.

Jared E Decker, J Chris Pires, Gavin C Conant, Stephanie D McKay, Michael P Heaton, Kefei Chen, Alan Cooper, Johanna Vilkki, Christopher M Seabury, Alexandre R Caetano, Gary S Johnson, Rick A Brenneman, Olivier Hanotte, Lori S Eggert, Pamela Wiener, Jong-Joo Kim, Kwan Suk Kim, Tad S Sonstegard, Curt P Van Tassell, Holly L Neibergs, John C McEwan, Rudiger Brauning, Luiz L Coutinho, Masroor E Babar, Gregory A Wilson, Matthew C McClure, Megan M Rolf, Jaewoo Kim, Robert D Schnabel, Jeremy F Taylor,

The Pecorans (higher ruminants) are believed to have rapidly speciated in the Mid-Eocene, resulting in five distinct extant families: Antilocapridae, Giraffidae, Moschidae, Cervidae, and Bovidae. Due to the rapid radiation, the Pecoran phylogeny has proven difficult to resolve, and 11 of the 15 possible rooted phylogenies describing ancestral relationships among ... Read more >>
