Remarkable species diversity in Malagasy mouse lemurs (primates, Microcebus).
Phylogenetic analysis of mtDNA sequence data confirms the observation that species diversity in the world's smallest living primate (genus Microcebus) has been greatly underestimated. The descriptionExpand

Delimiting Species without Nuclear Monophyly in Madagascar's Mouse Lemurs
Background Speciation begins when populations become genetically separated through a substantial reduction in gene flow, and it is at this point that a genetically cohesive set of populations attainExpand

Lemur Diversity in Madagascar
A basic understanding of the taxonomy, diversity, and distributions of primates is essential for their conservation. This review of the status of the taxonomy of lemurs is based on a 5-d workshopExpand

Species discovery and validation in a cryptic radiation of endangered primates: coalescent‐based species delimitation in Madagascar's mouse lemurs
Implementation of the coalescent model in a Bayesian framework is an emerging strength in genetically based species delimitation studies. By providing an objective measure of species diagnosis, theseExpand

Geogenetic patterns in mouse lemurs (genus Microcebus) reveal the ghosts of Madagascar's forests past
Phylogeographic analysis can be described as the study of the geological and climatological processes that have produced contemporary geographic distributions of populations and species. Here, weExpand

On the specific identification of subfossil Cryptoprocta (Mammalia, Carnivora) from Madagascar
Grandidier (1902) described a large form of Cryptoprocta ferox Bennett, 1833, a genus of Carnivora endemic to Madagascar, from subfossil material dating from the presumed Holocene that he referred toExpand

A multidimensional approach for detecting species patterns in Malagasy vertebrates
The biodiversity of Madagascar is extraordinarily distinctive, diverse, and endangered. It is therefore urgent that steps be taken to document, describe, interpret, and protect this exceptionalExpand

Molecular Evolutionary Characterization of a V1R Subfamily Unique to Strepsirrhine Primates
Vomeronasal receptor genes have frequently been invoked as integral to the establishment and maintenance of species boundaries among mammals due to the elaborate one-to-one correspondence betweenExpand

Species delimitation in lemurs: multiple genetic loci reveal low levels of species diversity in the genus Cheirogaleus
BackgroundSpecies are viewed as the fundamental unit in most subdisciplines of biology. To conservationists this unit represents the currency for global biodiversity assessments. Even thoughExpand

Two New Species of Mouse Lemurs (Cheirogaleidae: Microcebus) from Eastern Madagascar
The number of newly discovered Malagasy vertebrate taxa has multiplied in recent years, emphasizing the importance of complete taxon sampling for phylogenetics, biogeography, functional ecology, andExpand
