An Assessment of the Systematics of Arvicanthine Rodents Using Mitochondrial DNA Sequences: Evolutionary and Biogeographical Implications
Mitochondrial DNA sequences of cytochrome b (1140-bp), 12S (375-bp) and 16S (475-bp) ribosomal RNA gene fragments were used to investigate the phylogenetic relationships of a group of African rodentsExpand

Cytochrome b-based phylogeny of the Praomys group (Rodentia, Murinae): a new African radiation?
Complete cytochrome b gene sequences allows, for the first time, establishing a nearly complete phylogeny among the Praomys group sensu lato. The genera Praomys, Mastomys and Stenocephalemys appearExpand

Phylogeography of the Guinea multimammate mouse (Mastomys erythroleucus): a case study for Sahelian species in West Africa
Aim To investigate the phylogeographical structure of the Guinea multimammate mouse, Mastomys erythroleucus (Temminck, 1853), a widespread murid rodent in sub-Saharan (Sahel and Sudan) savannas, forExpand

Evolutionary systematics in African gerbilline rodents of the genus Gerbilliscus: inference from mitochondrial genes.
Gerbilliscus has recently been proposed as an endemic African rodent genus distinct from the Asian Tatera. A molecular phylogeny of the genus, including nine species from southern, western andExpand

Autosome and Sex Chromosome Diversity Among the African Pygmy Mice, Subgenus Nannomys (Murinae; Mus)
The African pygmy mice, subgenus Nannomys, constitute the most speciose lineage of the genus Mus with 19 recognized species. Although morphologically very similar, they exhibit considerableExpand

The phylogeny of the Praomys complex (Rodentia: Muridae) and its phylogeographic implications
Among the African Murinae (Rodentia, Muridae), the Praomys complex, whose systematics has been studied by different approaches, has raised numerous taxonomic problems. Different taxa, namely Praomys,Expand

Recent radiation in West African Taterillus (Rodentia, Gerbillinae): the concerted role of chromosome and climatic changes
West African gerbils of the genus Taterillus constitute a complex of seven sibling species distributed from sudano-guinean to saharo-sahelian regions. They display radically rearranged karyotypesExpand

Ecological changes in recent land-bridge islands in French Guiana, with emphasis on vertebrate communities
In 1993 a multidisciplinary project investigating the effects of tropical rainforest fragmentation on land-bridge islands created by a hydroelectric reservoir was initiated in French Guiana (theExpand
