Present distribution of the Golden Jackal Canis aureus in the Balkans and adjacent regions
Small, scattered, but resident, populations of Golden Jackal Canis aureus occur along the coasts of the Balkan Peninsula. The bulk of these European Jackals is concentrated in the eastern parts ofExpand

Mitochondrial cytochrome b sequence yields new insight into the speciation of social voles in south‐west Asia
We established a cytochrome b (cyt b) phylogeny for six species of social voles. A Bayesian approach to phylogenetic reconstruction (BI) and a maximum likelihood (ML) tree revealed a dichotomy intoExpand

Glis glis (Rodentia: Gliridae)
Abstract Glis glis (Linnaeus, 1766) is a glirid commonly called the fat or edible dormouse. It is the largest dormouse and the only species in the genus Glis. Range mainly overlaps with a deciduousExpand

Phylogeography of the rare Balkan endemic Martino's vole, Dinaromys bogdanovi, reveals strong differentiation within the western Balkan Peninsula
The spatial genetic structure of Martino's vole, a rare palaeoendemic species of the western Balkans, was investigated using DNA isolated from archived museum samples. The study was based on partialExpand

Molecular systematics and evolutionary biogeography of the genus Talpa (Soricomorpha: Talpidae).
The range of the genus Talpa covers almost all Europe up to Western Asia. This genus has never been the object of comprehensive systematic studies using molecular and genetic techniques, such thatExpand

Evolutionary history of mole rats (genus Nannospalax) inferred from mitochondrial cytochrome b sequence
Mole rats (genus Nannospalax) display prolific chromosomal variation with more than 50 distinct cytotypes. These cytotypes are largely indistinguishable morphologically, are mainly allopatric andExpand

Mitochondrial phylogeny of Arvicolinae using comprehensive taxonomic sampling yields new insights
Comprehensive taxonomic sampling can vastly improve the accuracy of phylogenetic reconstruction. Here, we present the most inclusive phylogenetic analysis of Arvicolinae (Mammalia, Rodentia) to date,Expand

Mitochondrial phylogeography of the European ground squirrel, Spermophilus citellus, yields evidence on refugia for steppic taxa in the southern Balkans
The spatial genetic structure of the European ground squirrel, a species characteristic of the short-grass steppe, was investigated on the basis of a 1140-bp cyt b gene sequence. TheExpand

Evolutionary biogeography of water shrews (Neomys spp.) in the western Palaearctic Region
We studied the morphology, DNA sequence, and Recent and Pleistocene distributions of three species of the water shrew genus Neomys (N. fodiens, N. anomalus, and N. teres) represented by samples fromExpand

A new cytochrome b phylogroup of the common vole (Microtus arvalis) endemic to the Balkans and its implications for the evolutionary history of the species
The phylogeographic architecture of the common vole, Microtus arvalis, has been well-studied using mitochondrial DNA and used to test hypotheses relating to glacial refugia. The distribution of theExpand
