Although the genus Japalura s.l. has long been recognized as paraphyletic based on limited genetic sampling, its problematic taxonomy has not been revised, and phylogenetic relationships among the majority of congeners remain unknown. Here we utilize a densely sampled dataset of both multilocus genetic and morphological data to provide the first phylogenetic inference of relationships among Japalura s.l.species. Our results show that Japalura s.l. is paraphyletic, consisting of four major clades that are scattered across...

Data from: Understanding cryptic introgression and mixed ancestry of Red Junglefowl in India

Red Junglefowl (RJF), the wild progenitor of modern day chicken (DC), are believed to be in genetic endangerment due to introgression of domestic genes through opportunistic matings with domestic or feral chickens. Previous studies from India reported rare hybridization of RJF in wild, however, RJF population structure,pattern of gene flow and their admixture with DC populations are poorly understood at the landscape level. We conducted this study with the large sample size, covering the predicted...
