The association between demographic history, genealogy and geographical distribution of mitochondrial DNA cytochrome b haplotypes was studied in the wood lemming (Myopus schisticolor), a species that is closely associated with the boreal forest of the Eurasian taiga zone from Scandinavia to the Pacific coast. Except for a major phylogeographic discontinuity(More)
Distribution of nucleolus organizer regions (NORs) in karyotypes was studied in 10 species of wood mice, including Apodemus flavicollis, A. sylvaticus, A. uralensis (= A. microps), A. fulvipectus (= A. falzfeini), A. ponticus, A. hyrcanicus, A. mystacinus, A. agrarius, A. peninsulae, and A. speciosus. Peculiarities of NOR location in karyotypes can be used(More)
Polymorphism of nucleotide sequence of D-loop fragment of the mitochondrial DNA was studied in 20 moose from several local populations on the territory of Eurasia. Three main haplotype variants of D-loop were detected by molecular phylogenetic method, which formed three clusters named European, Asian, and American. Intraspecies variation in the length of(More)
291 Skeletal remains and frozen corpses of fossil mam mals, having special scientific value, are preserved in the permafrost. A considerable amount of such remains has been found in the Arctic zone of Yakutia, in regions of spreading ice sediments of the Yedoma suite. To date, more than 15 frozen corpses, including mammoths, wooly rhinoceroses, horses,(More)
Genetic relations between four European mice species of the genus Apodemus (Apodemus sylvaticus, A. flavicollis, A. microps and A. falzfeini) and five Transcaucasian ones (A. mystacinus, A. microps, and the forms No 2, 3p, 3f) were studied for 37 biochemical loci. Close genetic relations were demonstrated between the mice of subgenus Sylvaemus and A.(More)
Data on the complex genetic analysis of three sympatric species of Caucasian wood mice, Apodemus ponticus, A. fulvipectus, and A. uralensis are presented. A high degree of genetic differentiation at the isozymic, karyological and molecular (nuclear DNA) levels was revealed. The genetic distances between each pair of species varied significantly within a(More)
The fragment preserved is a 112-cm-long anterior corpse part, including the head, incomplete trunk, neck, and incomplete thorax (Fig. 1). The body is cut off just posterior to the withers, scapula, and the upper part of the humerus. The skin is broken at the top of the head in the frontal area. The skull is heavily damaged. The trunk is cut from the head;(More)
Examination of the water mite collection made by the authors in the territory of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) in 2006 has revealed 43 mite species of the phalanx Hydrachnidia, belonging to 19 genera and 12 families, 1 species of the phalanx Trombidia, and 2 freshwater species of the superfamily Halacaroidea, belonging to 2 genera and 1 family. All the(More)
23 As was reported earlier [1, 2], in June 2007, a fro zen mummy of an adult female woolly rhinoceros (Coelodonta antiquitatis, Blum., 1799) was found at a goldmine near the Cherskii settlement of the Nizh nekolymskii raion of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) (68°46' N, 161°38' E). A study of the stomach contents of the fossilized rhinoceros using(More)
205 Hair of the woolly mammoth Mammuthus primige nius Blumenbach, 1799 has been studied for many years. Judging from the ancient rock paintings, figu rines, and preserved hair fragments, as well as from the data of numerous paleontological researches, the mammoth hair was long (up to 1 m or even longer), thick, multi tiered, and with topographical differ(More)
