- Population structure of the African savannah elephant inferred from mitochondrial control region sequences and nuclear microsatellite lociS Nyakaana
Institute of Environment and Natural Resources, Makerere University, P O Box 7298, Kampala, Uganda
Heredity (Edinb) 89:90-8. 2002..31). We discuss our results in the light of Pleistocene refugia and attribute the observed pattern to population divergence in allopatry accompanied by a recent population admixture following a recent population expansion...

Heredity (Edinb) 91:361-72. 2003..85) than at nuclear loci (FST=0.20), but both mitochondrial and nuclear loci support the existence of the three warthog lineages. We interpret our results in terms of the large-scale climatic fluctuations of the Pleistocene...
