İnsanlık tarihinde ilk kez, günümüzden yaklaşık 11.000 yıl önce yeni bir yaşam tarzı Yakın Doğu’da gelişmeye başladı. İnsanlar geleneksel avcı-toplayıcı kültürünü zamanla terkederek yerleşik hayata geçtiler, tarım ve hayvancılığa başladılar. Bu geçiş sürecinin dinamiklerine antik DNA analizleri ışık tutabiliyor. Bu çalışmada orta Anadolu’nun ilk Taş Devri (Neolitik) çiftçi toplumlarından olan Konya Boncuklu Höyük insanlarının, ayrıca Boncuklu’dan 1000 sene sonra yaşamış Niğde Tepecik-Çiftlik Höyük’ün çiftçilerinin genomları incelendi. İlk çiftçilerin genetik çeşitliliklerinin düşük olduğu, bu açıdan ataları olan avcı-toplayıcılara benzedikleri bulundu. Ama zaman içinde çiftçi toplumların çeşitliliği artmış. Bu da nüfusun zamanla büyüdüğüne ve hareketlenmenin arttığına işaret ediyor.

DNA barkodlama, türlerin genetik olarak başka türlerden ayrılmasına olanak sağlar. bu çalışmada, incelenen 33 kuş türünün 26’sından daha önce görülmemiş yeni genetik barkodlar elde edildi. 12 kuş türünde ise bilim dünyasına yeni 18 genetik haplotip keşfedildi. Yapılan çalışma ile elde edilen DNA barkod verilerini dünyanın farklı bölgelerinden elde edilmiş olan veriler ile karşılaştırıldığında, Türkiye’deki kuşların genetik olarak Doğu Avrupa, Batı Rusya, Orta Asya bölgesinde yaşayan kuşlara daha fazla benzediği görüldü. İncelenen 33 kuş türünün yüzde 79’unda yeni genetik barkodlar keşfedilmesi, Aras Nehri Kuş Cennetinin biyolojik ve genetik çeşitlilik açısından dünya çapındaki önemini bir kez daha gösterdi. Burada, halen genetik olarak incelenmemiş 230’dan fazla kuş türü var. Çalışmalar devam ederse, yüzlerce yeni genetik barkod ve belki de yeni kuş türleri keşfedilebilir.

Türkiye birçok büyük memeli etçil türüne ait popülasyonlar barındırır. Bu popülasyonların sağlıklı biçimde korunması (örn. insan-yaban hayatı çatışmasının ve diğer tehdit unsurlarının en aza indirilmesi) ancak sistematik izleme faaliyetleri ve öngörülen önlemlerin değişen risk unsurlarına bağlı güncellenmesiyle mümkündür. Bu bağlamda Huseyin Ambarlı ve arkadaşları Türkiye’nin önemli etçillerinden bozayı (Ursus arctos), kurt (Canis lupus), çakal (Canis aureus) ve kızıl tilki (Vulpes vulpes) için, türlerin biyo-ekolojik özelliklerini ( aktivite, diyet vb.) ve dağılım haritalarını derledikleri geniş kaynaklı bir veri tabanı hazırladılar. Araştırmacılar bu bilgileri kullanarak türlerin IUCN (Nesli Tükenme Tehlikesi Altında Olan Türlerin Kırmızı Listesi) statülerini belirleyip bu konudaki güncel durumu ortaya koymuşlardır.
