    Eduardo Eizirik
    Faculdade de Biociencias, PUCRS, Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil
    Mol Phylogenet Evol 56:49-63. 2010
    ..Analysis of this data set led to consistent and robust resolution of all supra-familial nodes in the carnivoran tree, and allowed the construction of a molecular timescale for the evolution of this mammalian order...
  3. pmc How the leopard hides its spots: ASIP mutations and melanism in wild cats
    Alexsandra Schneider
    Laboratório de Biologia Genômica e Molecular, Faculdade de Biociencias, Pontificia Universidade Catolica do Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil
    PLoS ONE 7:e50386. 2012
    ..Our results reveal two additional cases of species-specific mutations implicated in melanism in the Felidae, and indicate that ASIP mutations may play an important role in naturally-occurring coloration polymorphism...

    Mol Ecol Resour 12:18-35. 2012
    ..Overall, our results indicate that these segments hold good potential as standard markers for accurate species-level identification in the Carnivora...

    Cristine S Trinca
    Departamento de Genetica, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Avenida Bento Gonçalves, 9500, Prédio 43323, Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
    J Hered 103:479-92. 2012
    ..The results obtained here provide novel insights on the evolutionary history of this largely unknown Neotropical mustelid and should be useful to design conservation and management policies on behalf of this species and its habitats...

    Laura R P Utz
    Faculdade de Biociencias, Pontificia Universidade Catolica do Rio Grande do Sul PUCRS, Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
    J Eukaryot Microbiol 57:415-20. 2010
    ..This suggests that characters used to define this genus may be plesiomorphic for Peritrichia, so that Epistylis may in fact represent an assemblage of basal species retaining ancestral features...
