Emberiza cioides is a passerine bird of eastern Asia which belongs to the genus Emberiza in the bunting family Emberizidae. The complete mitochondrial genome of E. cioides was obtained for the first time. The circular genome (16,765bp in length) consists of 37 typical animal mitochondrial genes (13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes) and 1 control region. Except for 8 tRNA genes and ND6 gene, all the genes were distributed in plus strand which were identical to those of most vertebrates. © 2013 Informa UK Ltd. Source

Emberiza rustica, least concern species (IUCN), is a passerine bird in the bunting family with wide geographical range. The complete mitochondrial genome of E. rustica (16,798bp in length) had been analyzed for building the database. Similar to the typical mtDNA of vertebrates, it contained 37 genes (13 protein-coding genes, 2 rRNA genes and 22 tRNA genes) and a non-coding region (D-loop). All the protein-coding genes in E. rustica were distributed on the H-strand, except for the ND6 subunit gene and 10 tRNA genes which were encoded on the L-strand. © 2014 Informa UK Ltd.

During a biological survey in July 2011, a pit viper was collected from the Yaoluoping Nature Reserve in the Dabie Mountains, Anhui, China. The pit viper's the total length measured 836 mm with a dorsal ground color of yellow-brown, decorated by 56 dark-brown transverse bands. The 4th supralabial squama of the new species is separated from subocular by two squamae, and the tip of tail is orange; this combination of characters distinguish it from other species of the genus Protobothrops. Based on the body proportions, number of squamae, body color pattern, and comparing the data of its life history with those of other species of Protobothrops, we herein describe it as a new species, belonging to the genus of Protobothrops.

Black-faced bunting (Emberiza spodocephala) is a common small songbird with widely geographical range. In this study, the complete mitochondrial genome of the Emberiza spodocephala was determined. The study showed that the total length of the mitogenome was 16,796 bp as a circular DNA consists of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 rRNA genes, and 1 control region (CR). Overall base composition of the complete mitochondrial DNA was 29.81% A, 23.12% T, 32.51% C, and 14.56% G. The CR is 1215 bp in length and was located between the tRNA Gln and tRNAPhe genes. The mitochondrial genes from Emberiza spodocephala were overlapped in a total of 29 bp at 6 locations, as well as interleaved with a total of 96 bp intergenic spacers at 18 locations. © 2014 Informa UK Ltd.

The Emberiza pusilla is a common bunting with very wide geographical range. Here, the complete mitochondrial genome of E. pusilla (16,790 bp in length) has been analyzed for building the database. The results showed that it consisted of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes, and 1 control region. The base composition of mtDNA was A (29.6%), G (14.8%), C (32.8%), and T (22.9%), so the percentage of A and T (52.5%) was slightly higher than G and C. All the genes in E. pusilla were distributed on the H-strand, except for the ND6 subunit gene and 10 tRNA genes, which were encoded on the L-strand. © 2013 Informa UK, Ltd. Source
