Correlating Bayesian date estimates with climatic events and domestication using a bovine case study

Ho, Simon; Larson, Greger; Edwards, Ceiridwen J.; Heupink, Tim H.; Lakin, Kay E.; Holland, Peter W.H.; Shapiro, Beth


The tribe Bovini contains a number of commercially and culturally important species, such as cattle. Understanding their evolutionary time scale is important for distinguishing between post-glacial and domestication-associated population expansions, but estimates of bovine divergence times have been hindered by a lack of reliable calibration points. We present a Bayesian phylogenetic analysis of 481 mitochondrial D-loop sequences, including 228 radiocarbon-dated ancient DNA sequences, using a...[Show more]
