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
Population differentiation during the ice ages, followed by range expansions has significantly contributed to the geographic distribution patterns of the genetic diversity in Europe. In this regard,Expand

Cryptic diversity of the bent-wing bat, Miniopterus schreibersii (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae), in Asia Minor
BackgroundTwo or more species are cryptic, if they are morphologically similar, biologically distinct, and misclassified as a single species. Cryptic species complexes were recently discovered withinExpand

Regionally and climatically restricted patterns of distribution of genetic diversity in a migratory bat species, Miniopterus schreibersii (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae)
BackgroundVarious mechanisms such as geographic barriers and glacial episodes have been proposed as determinants of intra-specific and inter-specific differentiation of populations, and theExpand

Molecular ecology and phylogeography of the bent‐wing bat complex (Miniopterus schreibersii) (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) in Asia Minor and adjacent regions
In this study we investigate population genetic structure and phylogeography of the bent‐wing bat complex (Miniopterus schreibersii) in Asia Minor and adjacent regions. PCR amplification andExpand

Shallow Genetic Differentiation in Miniopterus schreibersii (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) Indicates a Relatively Recent Re-Colonization of Europe from a Single Glacial Refugium
In this study we analyzed 547 sequences of the first hypervariable domain of the control region of Miniopterus schreibersii sampled in colonies located in the western- and eastern-most borders of itsExpand

On the phylogeny of Miniopterus Schreibersii Schreibersii and Miniopterus Schreibersii Pallidus from Asia Minor in Reference to other Miniopterus Taxa (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae)
In this study we investigated phylogenetics of Miniopterus schreibersii schreibersii and M. s. pallidus from Asia Minor by means of two mitochondrial DNA markers, NADH dehydrogenase subunit 2 (ND2)Expand

Cytonuclear discordance and the species status of Myotis myotis and Myotis blythii (Chiroptera)
We used both highly variable mitochondrial and nuclear loci to investigate the large mouse‐eared bat species complex in the Western Palaearctic to clarify their systematic position. AlthoughExpand

Molecular taxonomy and phylogeography of Miniopterus schreibersii (Kuhl, 1817) (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae), in the Eurasian transition
Miniopterus schreibersii is a polytypic bat species, with one of the widest distribution ranges among the mammals. We studied the genetic differentiation and taxonomy of this species in theExpand
