Radiation of chromosome shuffles.
Rock wallabies, Petrogale, exhibit chromosome diversity that is exceptional in marsupials, with 20 distinct chromosome races being recognized. Many of the karyotypic changes identified withinExpand
Volcanostratigraphic Controls on the Occurrence of Massive Sulfide Deposits in the Semail Ophiolite, Oman
The Semail ophiolite in Oman is capped by up to 2 km of basaltic-andesitic lavas that host copper-dominant, Cyprus-type, volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits. This study identifies multipleExpand
Taxonomy of rock-wallabies, Petrogale (Marsupialia: Macropodidae). III. Molecular data confirms the species status of the purple-necked rock-wallaby (Petrogale purpureicollis Le Souef)
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) analysis was undertaken to resolve the systematic uncertainties surrounding the morphologically distinct purple-necked rock-wallaby (P. lateralis purpureicollis) ofExpand
Chromosomal rearrangements in rock wallabies, Petrogale (Marsupialia: Macropodidae). III. G-banding analysis of Petrogale inornata and P. penicillata
The karyotypes of Petrogale inornata and the two currently recognised races of Petrogale penicillata were examined using G-banding from cultured fibroblasts. Petrogale inornata (2n = 22) was found toExpand
Helminth parasites of rock-wallabies, petrogale spp. (Marsupialia), from Queensland
Helminth parasites were examined from the following rock-wallaby species from Queensland: Petrogale penicillata penicillata (2), P. penicillata herberti (1l), P. inornata (15), P. assirnilis (36),Expand
Taxonomy of Rock Wallabies, Petrogale (Marsupialia, Macropodidae) .1. A Revision of the Eastern Petrogale With the Description of 3 New Species
The taxonomy of Petrogale has been in a state of flux for many years. The eight chromosome races of the eastern Petrogale radiation are currently placed in four species. However, several of theseExpand
Multifaceted genetic analysis of the “Critically Endangered” brush-tailed rock-wallaby Petrogale penicillata in Victoria, Australia: Implications for management
The use of molecular genetic techniques can aidwildlife managers in setting priorities anddevising management strategies for scatteredpopulations of threatened taxa. In this study,six remnantExpand
Phylogeny inferred from allozymes in the Heterodoxus octoseriatus group of species (Phthiraptera : Boopiidae)
Phenetic and phylogenetic relationships in the Heterodoxus octoseriatus group of species were explored with data from 21 putative allozyme loci. The phenetic analyses and some of the cladisticExpand
Genetic analysis of a population crash in brush-tailed rock-wallabies (Petrogale penicillata) from Jenolan Caves, south-eastern Australia
Although the theoretical effects of a severe reduction in effective population size (i.e. a bottleneck) are well known, relatively few empirical studies of bottlenecks have been based on extensiveExpand
