The complete sequence of the mitochondrial genome of Buteo buteo (Aves, Accipitridae) indicates an early split in the phylogeny of raptors.
The complete sequence of the mitochondrial (mt) genome of Buteo buteo was determined. Its gene content and nucleotide composition are typical for avian genomes. Due to expanded noncoding sequences,Expand

Molecular phylogeny of the genus Buteo (Aves: Accipitridae) based on mitochondrial marker sequences.
DNA sequences of the mitochondrial nd6 gene and the non-repetitive part of the pseudo-control region (PsiCR) were isolated from 101 individuals to analyze the phylogenetic relationships among allExpand

Marmot phylogeny revisited: molecular evidence for a diphyletic origin of sociality
We established the phylogeny of 11 species of the genus Marmota based on the entire sequence of the mitochondrial cytochrome b (cyt-b) gene (1.1 kb) and a partial sequence of the NADH dehydrogenaseExpand

GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION AND SHELL MORPHOLOGY OF TROCHULUS OREINOS (WAGNER, 1915) AND T. HISPIDUS (LINNAEUS, 1758) (PULMONATA: HYGROMIIDAE) IN THE NORTHEASTERN ALPS
Trochulus oreinos oreinos and T. oreinos scheerpeltzi are two land snail taxa endemic to the Northeastern Austrian Alps, which have been regarded as subspecies of the highly variable, widespread landExpand

Relaxed selective constraints drove functional modifications in peripheral photoreception of the cavefish P. andruzzii and provide insight into the time of cave colonization
The genetic basis of phenotypic changes in extreme environments is a key but rather unexplored topic in animal evolution. Here we provide an exemplar case of evolution by relaxed selection in theExpand

Paraphyly and budding speciation in the hairy snail (Pulmonata, Hygromiidae)
Delimitation of species is often complicated by discordance of morphological and genetic data. This may be caused by the existence of cryptic or polymorphic species. The latter case is particularlyExpand

Differentiation in the Trochulus hispidus complex and related taxa (Pulmonata: Hygromiidae): morphology, ecology and their relation to phylogeography
In this study we investigated the morphology and ecology of representatives of the taxonomically ambiguous genus Trochulus. The main focus was on the T. hispidus complex, which comprises severalExpand

Early primiparity in brown bears
We documented 2 cases of unusually early primiparity in brown bearsUrsus arctos Linneaus, 1758 in an introduced population in central Austria. Two females gave birth at the age of 3 years.
