Title The Felids family Felidae Gray, 1821 Type Miscellaneous
Year 1989 Publication Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 46
Keywords Ussr; Felidae; Miocene; Pliocene; Pleistocene; Holocene; origin; Uzbekistan; Genus Uncia; snow leopard; specie range; Western Tien Shan; Hissar ridge; Zeravshan ridge; Turkestan ridge.; 6980; Russian
Abstract Zoolites of the Felidae family are known from the Upper Eocene Lower Pliocene in Eurasia, Africa, and North America. Two sub-families are know to inhabit the territory of the USSR and adjacent territories: the extinct sabre-toothed Felidae species Machairodontia and now existing Felidae species. In the USSR the extinct Felidae species were found to exist in Upper Miocene, Upper and Middle Pliocene, and Pleistocene. In Eurasia panthers has been know since early Pliocene. Three species were found in Uzbekistan – the extinct cave lion Felidae sd†l…†… (Goldfuss, 1810), and now existing P…nth†a… tigris, P…nth†a… pardus. The ancient finds and modern habitats are briefly described. Genus Uncia is represented by one species snow leopard or irbis. Probably it appeared in later Pliocene or Pleistocene in the mountain of Central Asia. In Uzbekistan, remains of snow leopard were found in the Samarqand region in the layer of Upper Pleistocene or Holocene. Probably it moved into the area in Pleistocene or the period of glacier removal in the Western Tien Shan mountains, Turkestan, Zeravshan, and Hissar ridges.

Title The Late Miocene Radiation of Modern Felidae: A Genetic Assessment Type Miscellaneous
Year 2006 Publication Science Abbreviated Journal
Volume 311 Issue Pages 74-77
Keywords carnivore; classification; divergence; Dna; Felidae; fossil; lineages; Miocene; mitochondrial; Molecular; phylogeny; radiation; taxonomic
Abstract Modern felid species descend from relatively recent (G11 million years ago) divergence and speciation events that produced successful predatory carnivores worldwide but that have confounded taxonomic classifications. A highly resolved molecular phylogeny with divergence dates for all living cat species, derived from autosomal, X-linked, Y-linked, and mitochondrial gene segments (22,789 base pairs) and 16 fossil calibrations define eight principal lineages produced through at least 10 intercontinental migrations facilitated by sea-level fluctuations. A ghost lineage analysis indicates that available felid fossils underestimate (i.e., unrepresented basal branch length) first occurrence by an average of 76%, revealing a low representation of felid lineages in paleontological remains. The phylogenetic performance of distinct gene classes showed that Y-chromosome segments are appreciably more informative than mitochondrial DNA, X-linked, or autosomal genes in resolving the rapid Felidae species radiation.

Keywords classification; divergence; Dna; Felidae; genetics; Miocene; mitochondrial; phylogeny; radiation; species; taxonomic
Abstract Modern felid species descend from relatively recent (<11 million years ago) divergence and

speciation events that produced successful predatory carnivores worldwide but that have

confounded taxonomic classifications. A highly resolved molecular phylogeny with divergence dates

for all living cat species, derived from autosomal, X-linked, Y-linked, and mitochondrial gene

segments (22,789 base pairs) and 16 fossil calibrations define eight principal lineages produced

through at least 10 intercontinental migrations facilitated by sea-level fluctuations. A ghost lineage

analysis indicates that available felid fossils underestimate (i.e., unrepresented basal branch

length) first occurrence by an average of 76%, revealing a low representation of felid lineages

in paleontological remains. The phylogenetic performance of distinct gene classes showed that

Y-chromosome segments are appreciably more informative than mitochondrial DNA, X-linked,

or autosomal genes in resolving the rapid Felidae species radiation.
