Glacial refugia of mammals in Europe: evidence from fossil records
1Glacial refugia were core areas for the survival of temperate species during unfavourable environmental conditions and were the sources of postglacial recolonizations. Unfortunately, the locations
Late Miocene and Pliocene small mammal faunas [Insectivora, Lagomorpha, Rodentia] of Southeastern Europe
A biochronologic range of 25 genera of insectivores, 12 genera of lagomorphs, and 68 genera of rodents from almost 40 fossil assemblages of Late Miocene and Pliocene age in Southeastern Europe is
Systematics, geographic variation, and evolution of snow voles ( Chionomys ) based on dental characters
Analysis of dental characters of Chionomys supported by a comparison with biochemical and karyological criteria shows its isolation from Microtus (sensu stricto). Snow voles (Chionomys) consist of
Retreat and extinction of the Late Pleistocene cave bear (Ursus spelaeus sensu lato)
The relatively long survival of this bear in karst regions may result from suitable microclimate and continuous access to water provided by deep aquifers, indicating a refugial role of such regions in the Pleistocene for many species.
Origin and history of the present rodent fauna in Poland based on fossil evidence
On the basis of study of ca. 16000 rodent remains belonging to at least 25 species, obtained from 21 faunal assemblages of the Late Quaternary age from Poland, an analysis of rodent communities,
Dental Variation in Sibling Species Microtus arvalis and M. rossiaemeridionalis (Arvicolinae, Rodentia): Between-Species Comparisons and Geography of Morphotype Dental Patterns
The data on dental variability in natural populations of sibling species of common voles (“arvalis” group, genus Microtus) from European and Asian parts of the species’ ranges are summarized using a
