Chromosomal variation and perinatal mortality in San Diego zoo Soemmerring's gazellesSteiner, Cynthia C.; Charter, Suellen J.; Goddard, Natalie; Davis, Heidi; Brandt, Margot; Houck, Marlys L.; Ryder, Oliver A. (2015)…For the past 35 years, the San Diego Zoo Global (SDZG) captive population of Soemmerring's gazelles has revealed complex karyotypes resulting from chromosomal translocations with diploid numbers ranging from 34 to 39... Low levels of genetic distance and nucleotide diversity among individuals, in addition to high relatedness values, suggested that outbreeding is less of a concern than inbreeding for maintaining a sustainable captive population….
Multi-locus phylogeny of the tribe Tragelaphini (Mammalia, Bovidae) and species delimitation in bushbuck: Evidence for chromosomal speciation mediated by interspecific hybridizationHassanin, Alexandre; Houck, Marlys L.; Tshikung, Didier; Kadjo, Blaise; Davis, Heidi; Ropiquet, Anne (2018)The bushbuck is the most widespread bovid species in Africa. Previous mitochondrial studies have revealed a polyphyletic pattern suggesting the possible existence of two distinct species....
