Extinction of lions in southern Europe, North Africa and the Middle East interrupted gene flow between lion populations in Asia and Africa.
Genetic evidence revealed numerous mutations in lion samples from East and Southern Africa,
which indicates that this group has a longer evolutionary history than genetically less diverse lion samples from Asia and West and Central Africa.
A whole genome-wide sequence of lion samples showed that samples from West Africa shared alleles with samples from Southern Africa, and samples from Central Africa shared alleles with samples from Asia.
This phenomenon indicates that Central Africa was a melting pot of lion populations after they had become isolated, possibly migrating through corridors in the Nile Basin during the early Holocene.
