Bats (Mammalia: Chiroptera) of the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East. Part 10. Bat fauna of Iran
A complete list of bat records available from Iran was compiled from literature and from new records, based on field studies and examination of museum specimens, to give basic descriptive echolocation parameters for at least 24 species.
Mitochondrial phylogeography of the long-eared bats (Plecotus) in the Mediterranean Palaearctic and Atlantic Islands.
Bats (Mammalia: Chiroptera) of the Eastern Mediterranean. Part 3. Review of bat distribution in Bulgaria
In Bulgaria, at least 32 species of bats have been recorded in 2127 localities in Bulgaria, according to official records.
Phylogeography of the greater horseshoe bat, Rhinolophus ferrumequinum: contrasting results from mitochondrial and microsatellite data
A detailed study of the phylogeography of the greater horseshoe bat using 1098 bp of the mitochondrial ND2 gene from 45 localities from across its Palaearctic range to infer population history and shows two colonization events in Europe, one before the Last Glacial Maximum and one after it.
Molecular architecture of Pipistrellus pipistrellus/Pipistrellus pygmaeus complex (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae): further cryptic species and Mediterranean origin of the divergence.
SYSTEMATIC STATUS OF AFRICAN POPULATIONS OF LONG-EARED BATS, GENUS PLECOTUS (MAMMALIA: CHIROPTERA)
Three species of Plecotus occurring in Africa are defined and a new subspecies is described and described from the Mediterranean region of Cyrenaica, north-eastern Libya, and two well-defined allopatric populations in northern Africa are recognised.
Molecules, morphometrics and new fossils provide an integrated view of the evolutionary history of Rhinopomatidae (Mammalia: Chiroptera)
The mtDNA survey provided phylogenetic tree of the family Rhinopomatidae for the first time and revealed an unexpected diversification of the group both within R. hardwickii and R. muscatellum morphospecies.
ALLOZYME VARIATION AND SYSTEMATICS OF THE GENUS APODEMUS (RODENTIA: MURIDAE) IN ASIA MINOR AND IRAN
Starch gel electrophoresis at 36 presumptive loci was used to study genetic variation and systematic status of 110 wood mice from 19 sites scattered across Anatolia, Armenia, and Iran, finding the pattern of variation and level of genetic differentiation within and among species were comparable between western and eastern samples.
Phylogeography and predicted distribution of African-Arabian and Malagasy populations of giant mastiff bats, Otomops spp. (Chiroptera: Molossidae)
Accumulation of suitable habitats supported the inferred high levels of continental gene flow (relatively low genetic distances), and suggested that factors other than habitat suitability have resulted in the observed phylogeographic structure (e.g., seasonal mass migrations of insects that might be tracked by these bats).

Together, these results suggest European populations originated from west Asia in the ancient past, and experienced a more recent range expansion since the Last Glacial Maximum.
