Molecular phylogeny of the speciose vole genus Microtus (Arvicolinae, Rodentia) inferred from mitochondrial DNA sequences.
Voles of the genus Microtus represent one of the most speciose mammalian genera in the Holarctic. We established a molecular phylogeny for Microtus to resolve contentious issues of systematicExpand

Holarctic phylogeography of the root vole (Microtus oeconomus): implications for late Quaternary biogeography of high latitudes
A species‐wide phylogeographical study of the root vole (Microtus oeconomus) was performed using the whole 1140 base pair mitochondrial (mt) cytochrome b gene. We examined 83 specimens from 52Expand

Multigenic and morphometric differentiation of ground squirrels (Spermophilus, Scuiridae, Rodentia) in Turkey, with a description of a new species.
This study reports on the molecular phylogenetics of ground squirrels, genus Spermophilus, in Turkey using cytochrome b (1140bp), part of the D-loop and flanking tRNAs (572bp), X chromosomeExpand

Phylogeography of field voles (Microtus agrestis) in Eurasia inferred from mitochondrial DNA sequences
In a distribution‐wide phylogeographic survey of the field vole (Microtus agrestis), 75 specimens from 56 localities across Eurasia were examined for DNA sequence variation along the whole 1140 baseExpand

Phylogeography of the common vole (Microtus arvalis) with particular emphasis on the colonization of the Orkney archipelago
To investigate the human introduction of the common vole Microtus arvalis onto the Orkney islands, the complete cytochrome b gene was sequenced in 41 specimens from both Orkney (four localities) andExpand

Phylogeography of lemmings (Lemmus): no evidence for postglacial colonization of Arctic from the Beringian refugium
Beringia is considered as an important glacial refugium that served as the main source for colonization of formerly glaciated Arctic regions. To obtain high resolution views of Arctic refugialExpand

Colonization history in Fennoscandian rodents
Fennoscandia probably constitutes one of the best places on earth to study faunal history. During the height of the most recent glacial period Fennoscandia was completely covered with ice. Thus, theExpand

Colonization history of north European field voles (Microtus agrestis) revealed by mitochondrial DNA
The genetic structure of field vole (Microtus agrestis) populations from northern Europe was examined by restriction fragment length polymorphisms of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in 150 individuals fromExpand

The occurrence of mountain hare mitochondrial DNA in wild brown hares
If interspecific hybrids are fertile and backcross to either parental species, transmission of mitochondrial DNA over the species barrier can occur. To investigate if such transmission has occurredExpand

Asymmetric and differential gene introgression at a contact zone between two highly divergent lineages of field voles (Microtus agrestis)
Secondary contact zones have the potential to shed light on the mode and rate at which reproductive isolation accumulates during allopatric speciation. We investigated the population genetics of aExpand
