Some karyological records and a new chromosomal form for Spalax (Mammalia: Rodentia) in Turkey
TLDR
The karyological peculiarities and distributional area of mole rats in the European part of Turkey have been determined in detail, and it is shown that only the 2n = 56 form is distributed in Thrace.
Phylogeography of the Greater Horseshoe Bat, Rhinolophus ferrumequinum (Chiroptera: Rhinolophidae), in Southeastern Europe and Anatolia, with a Specific Focus on Whether the Sea of Marmara is a
TLDR
Investigating the mitochondrial genetic differentiation of the greater horseshoe bat, Rhinolophus ferrumequinum in southeastern Europe and Anatolia indicated a suture zone in central Anatolia, similar to those recorded in other animal species, showing the presence of more than one refugium within the region.
Regionally and climatically restricted patterns of distribution of genetic diversity in a migratory bat species, Miniopterus schreibersii (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae)
TLDR
A scenario showing how multiple biotic and abiotic events including glacial periods, climate and historical dispersal patterns complemented each other in causing regional and local differentiation within a species is described.
Molecular ecology and phylogeography of the bent‐wing bat complex (Miniopterus schreibersii) (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) in Asia Minor and adjacent regions
TLDR
The presence of the genetically distinct lineages, with allopatric distribution and corresponding morphometric differences, probably reflects their long isolation during the ice‐age in the Balkans and the Caspian/Caucasus refugia, followed subsequently by expansion into different habitats.
Contribution to the distribution and karyology of some vespertilionid bats (Mammalia: Chiroptera) from Turkey
TLDR
The diploid number of chromosomes (2n) and the total numbers of autosomal arms (NFa) were determined as 2n= 44, NFa= 50 for M. myotis,M.
Serological Survey for Viral Pathogens in Turkish Rodents
TLDR
Preliminary results support presence of several virus groups with zoonotic potential in wild rodents in northeastern and western Turkey, and additional studies are needed to identify the specific viruses that are present in these populations.
Contribution to karyology, distribution and taxonomic status of the Long-winged Bat, Miniopterus schreibersii (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae), in Turkey
TLDR
The karyotype of the Long-winged Bat, Miniopterus schreibersii, in Turkey was found to be 2n= 46, FN= 52, FNa= 48, which is in conformity with the karyotypes described from other parts of the distribution area of this species.
Contribution to Rousettus aegyptiacus (Mammalia: Chiroptera) from Turkey
TLDR
The characteristics of the Turkish population were similar to those of the nominative subspecies, and moderate differences between the sexes were found in tibia length and total body length.
Phylogeographic analysis of Anatolian bats highlights the importance of the region for preserving the Chiropteran mitochondrial genetic diversity in the Western Palaearctic
TLDR
Comparing the phylogeographic patterns of different taxa indicates that three regions, the Balkans, the Caucasus, and the southern Anatolia, harbour genetically divergent populations and should have higher priority in conservation practices.
