Cryptic speciation in the southern African vlei rat Otomys irroratus complex: evidence derived from mitochondrial cyt b and niche modelling
The vlei rat Otomys irroratus has a wide distribution in southern Africa with several datasets indicating the presence of two putative species (O. irroratus and O. auratus). In the present study weExpand

Genetic Similarity Amongst Phenotypically Diverse Little Free-Tailed Bats, Chaerephon pumilus
The African molossid Chaerephon pumilus shows extensive variation in colour, size and echolocation across its wide distributional range with a light-winged form in north-eastern Africa and a darkExpand

Increased geographic sampling reveals considerable new genetic diversity in the morphologically conservative African Pygmy Mice (Genus Mus; Subgenus Nannomys)
African endemic pygmy mice (Genus Mus; sub-genus Nannomys) have considerable economic and public health significance, and some species exhibit novel sex determination systems, making accurateExpand

Mutations in the gene encoding the PML nuclear body protein Sp110 are associated with immunodeficiency and hepatic veno-occlusive disease
We describe mutations in the PML nuclear body protein Sp110 in the syndrome veno-occlusive disease with immunodeficiency, an autosomal recessive disorder of severe hypogammaglobulinemia, combined TExpand

Phylogeny of the African murid tribe Otomyini (Rodentia), based on morphological and allozyme evidence
Based on a cladistic analysis of 45 morphological (craniodental) and 46 binary allozyme characters, previous systematic treatments of the African murid tribe, Otomyini (laminate-toothed rats), areExpand

Measurement of the clinical utility of a combined mutation detection protocol in carriers of Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy
Background: Recent methodological advances have improved the detection rate for dystrophin mutations, but there are no published studies that have measured the clinical utility of these protocols forExpand

INTEGRATIVE TAXONOMY AND PHYLO- GENETIC SYSTEMATICS OF THE GENETS (CARNIVORA, VIVERRIDAE, GENETTA): A NEW CLASSIFICATION OF THE MOST SPECIOSE CARNIVORAN GENUS IN AFRICA
The taxonomy of the genus Genetta has been hotly debated. Following recent clarifications on the phylogeny of and species boundaries within the genets, we propose a new classification, includingExpand

The genus Neoromicia (Family Vespertilionidae) in Madagascar, with the description of a new species
Using molecular genetics, male sexual organ morphology (baculum), and cranio-dental characters, we describe a new spe-cies of the genus Neoromicia from Madagascar, N. robertsi sp. nov. It is presumedExpand

When is a species not a species? Uncoupled phenotypic, karyotypic and genotypic divergence in two species of South African laminate-toothed rats (Murinae: Otomyini)
Chromosomal polytypy, morphological conservatism and absence of data have frustrated the taxonomic revision of two species of southern African-endemic laminate-toothed rats (Otomys irroratus andExpand
