    Some cold-hardy species were present in the unglaciated areas of Britain and Ireland at the Last Glacial Maximum, and the phylogeographic studies suggest that at least one of them (the stoat, Mustela erminea) persisted from then until now. Other species colonised once the ice disappeared (e.g. bank vole, Myodes glarolus), but by that stage there was only a land connection to Britain. There was a final phase of colonisation involving humans. They introduced mammals throughout the British Isles, at different times. The phylogeographic analyses help establish the source areas of those colonisations. In one case, the neolithic introduction of the common vole (Microtus arvalis) onto Orkney, ancient DNA techniques have been used to elucidate the colonisation process.
