Population genetic structure and demographic history of the ground beetle Chlaenius costiger (Coleoptera: Carabidae) in the Tsinling-Dabashan Mountains of central China were estimated using mitochondrial DNA sequences (Cox1-tRNALeu-Cox2) of 144 individuals from 16 local populations. The high haplotype diversity was accompanied by low nucleotide diversity. Phylogenetic analysis (Bayesian inference) of the 43 haplotypes revealed no phylogeographic structure.

Genetic diversity and historical demography of the narrow-range endemic Alpine toad, Scutiger liupanensis, in the Liupan Mountains of central China

L. - N. Su, Meng, H. - Z., and Li, X. - C., Genetic diversity and historical demography of the narrow-range endemic Alpine toad, Scutiger liupanensis, in the Liupan Mountains of central China, vol. 14, pp. 4865-4878, 2015.

The genetic diversity and historical demography of the narrow-range endemic Alpine toad, Scutiger liupanensis, in the Liupanshan National Forest Park of central China were estimated using cytochrome b and cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) from 85 individuals from five local populations. Both the haplotype diversity (Hd) and the nucleotide diversity (Pi) were very high. Phylogenetic analysis of the 63 haplotypes revealed two major clades, and an analysis of molecular variance attributed most of the variation to within populations.
