A kingdom in decline: Holocene range contraction of the lion (Panthera leo) modelled with global environmental stratificationAim We use ecological niche models and environmental stratification of palaeoclimate to reconstruct the changing range of the lion (Panthera leo) during the late Pleistocene and Holocene. Location The modern (early 21st century) range of the lion extends from southern Africa to the western Indian Subcontinent, yet through the...

Post-glacial colonization of eastern Europe by small mammals that survived in the Carpathian refugium: evidence from mitochondrial DNA of the common voleThere is now considerable evidence for the survival of temperate species within glacial refugia that were situated at relatively high latitudes, notably the Carpathian Basin and Dordogne region in Europe. However, the prevalence of fossil remains in such locations is rarely matched by molecular evidence for their contribution to subsequent...
