The house mouse (Mus musculus) is one of the most invasive mammals and an evolutionary model. However, the timing and components of its origin and dispersal remain poorly documented. To track its synanthropisation and subsequent biological invasion during the develoment of complex human societies, we analyzed 829 Mus specimens from 43 archaeological contexts in Southwestern Asia and Southeastern Europe, dating between 40,000 and 3,000 cal. BP, combining geometric morphometris numerical taxonomy with ancient mitochondrial DNA...

Data from: Ostracods from the end-Permian mass extinction in the Aras Valley section (Northwest Iran)

The Aras Valley section (NW Iran) exposes a sedimentary succession that allows to study ostracod diversity patterns during/across the end-Permian mass extinction because of its ubiquitous fossil record. For the present study, 59 samples were investigated for their ostracod abundances, which ranged from 4 to 31500 specimens per 500 g. In 45 sample horizons, the ostracods were identified to the species-level. In total, 3,425 specimens were determined and 62 species were identified, of which one...

Regionally divergent drivers of historical diversification in the late Quaternary in a widely distributed generalist species, the common pheasant Phasianus colchicus

Aim: Pleistocene climate and associated environmental changes have influenced phylogeographic patterns of many species. These not only depend on a species’ life history but also vary regionally. Consequently, populations of widespread species that occur in several biomes might display different evolutionary trajectories. We aimed to identify regional drivers of diversification in the common pheasant, a widely distributed ecological generalist. Study location: Asia Taxon: Common pheasant Phasianus colchicus Methods: Using a comprehensive geographic sampling of 204...
