Phylogeography of the Large White-Bellied Rat Niviventer excelsior Suggests the Influence of Pleistocene Glaciations in the Hengduan Mountains
The Hengduan Mountains, situated in the southeastern Tibetan Plateau, have undergone dramatic geological and climatic changes over the Pleistocene epoch. Several studies have revealed that theExpand
Molecular phylogeny of Asiatic Short-Tailed Shrews, genus Blarinella Thomas, 1911 (Mammalia: Soricomorpha: Soricidae) and its taxonomic implications
The results indicate that B. quadraticauda might be under a budding speciations scenario or is a restricted geographical subspecies of B. griselda, and suggest that diversification and speciation of Blarinella might have been promoted by vicariance events associated to the complex topography of Southwest China.

Complete mitochondrial genome of the Himalayan Musk Deer, Moschus leucogaster, with phylogenetic implication
Using Bayesian phylogenetic methods, it is demonstrated M. leucogaster was a sister relationship to M. chrysogaster and the species was listed as an Endangered (EN) species by the IUCN red list of threatened animals. Expand
The characterization of complete mitochondrial genome and phylogenetic relationship within Rattus genus (Rodentia: Muridae)
The NADH dehydrogenase 4 gene showed a highly elevated Ka/Ks ratio compared to the other protein-coding genes, which indicated ND4 was most likely under relaxed selection pressure, which suggested purifying selection was the predominant evolutionary forces in the mitochondrial genomes of Rattus genus.

Molecular phylogenetics and phylogeographic structure of Sorex bedfordiae based on mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences.
The results support the hypothesis that sky island topography and river systems strongly affect the genetic structure of non-aquatic terrestrial species. Expand
The complete mitogenome of Stripe-Backed Shrew, Sorex cylindricauda (Soricidae)
The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of S. cylindricauda was determined and contributes to illuminating taxonomic status of Stripe-Backed Shrew Sorex cylindRICauda. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the Gracile shrew mole, Uropsilus gracilis (Soricomorpha: Talpidae)
The Gracile shrew mole (Uropsilus gracilis) belongs to the family Talpidae, which distributes in southwestern China, extending to northern Myanmar, and was determined to be of 16,533 bases in this study. Expand
The complete mitogenome of Hodgson’s Red-Toothed Shrew, Episoriculus caudatus (Soricidae)
The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Episoriculus caudatus was determined and contributes to illuminating taxonomic status of Hodgson’s Red-Toothed Shrew. Expand
Multilocus approaches reveal underestimated species diversity and inter-specific gene flow in pikas (Ochotona) from southwestern China.
This study supported O. syrinx (O. huangensis) as a distinct clade from all named subgenera, and uncovered three cryptic species from Shaanxi, Sichuan and Yunnan with strong support, suggesting an underestimation of species diversity in the "sky-island" mountains of southwest China. Expand
The complete mitogenome of Asiatic Short-tailed Shrew Blarinella quadraticauda (Soricidae)
The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of B. quadraticauda was determined and contributes to illuminating taxonomic status of the Asiatic Short-tailed Shrew. Expand
