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 of

Mitochondrial cytochrome b sequence yields new insight into the speciation of social voles in south‐west Asia
TLDR
A Bayesian approach to phylogenetic reconstruction (BI) and a maximum likelihood (ML) tree revealed a dichotomy into two major clusters, namely a Microtus guentheri cluster and a M. socialis cluster.
Phylogeography of the rare Balkan endemic Martino's vole, Dinaromys bogdanovi, reveals strong differentiation within the western Balkan Peninsula
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the topographical complexity of the Balkans promoted allopatry and isolation on a small geographical scale during interglacial periods, with secondary contact during glacial maxima, suggesting three independent glacial differentiation centres within the western Balkans.
Mitochondrial phylogeny of Arvicolinae using comprehensive taxonomic sampling yields new insights
TLDR
This is the most inclusive phylogenetic analysis of Arvicolinae (Mammalia, Rodentia) to date, combining all published cytochrome b gene sequences of greater than 1097 bp and new sequences from two monotypic genera.
Pattern and Process in Balkan Biodiversity — An Overview
The morose manner in which the grand vizier, Jusuf Ibrahim, is reported by the celebrated writer, the Bosnian Serb, No Andric, to have recalled his Bosnian homeland probably reflects equally the
Evolutionary history of mole rats (genus Nannospalax) inferred from mitochondrial cytochrome b sequence
TLDR
The results show that associations between genetic and chromosomal variation are not widespread and common in mole rats, and therefore refute the generalization of a ‘cytotype-equals-species’ approach.
Small Indian mongoose Herpestes auropunctatus (Hodgson, 1836) on the Adriatic Islands of Yugoslavia
Seven mongooses from three Adriatic islands of Yugoslavia were examined. They were shown to belong to Herpestes auropunctatus. The history of their introduction since 1910, present distribution and
Mitochondrial phylogeography of the European ground squirrel, Spermophilus citellus, yields evidence on refugia for steppic taxa in the southern Balkans
TLDR
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, suggesting the past existence of an allopatric fragmentation event caused by effective biogeographical barriers.
