Ever-Young Sex Chromosomes in European Tree Frogs
TLDR
It is concluded that sex-chromosome homomorphy in these tree frogs does not result from a recent turnover but is maintained over evolutionary timescales by occasional X-Y recombination, a result at odds with the view that sex chromosomes necessarily decay until they are replaced. Expand
Unexpected findings on the taxonomic status of East Mediterranean Crocidura russula auct. (Mammalia, Insectivora)
Les animaux attribues a Crocidura russula gueldenstaedti et/ou C. r. monacha en Turquie, Chypre et Israel appartenant en fait au taxon C. suaveolens Pallas 1811
Crocidura cossyrensis Contoli, 1989 (Mammalia, Soricidae): karyotype, biochemical genetics and hybridization experiments
TLDR
The shrew Crocidura cossyrensis from Pantelleria and C. russula cf. Expand
The Crocidura fuliginosa species complex (Mammalia: Insectivora) in peninsular Malaysia: Biological, karyological and genetical evidence
TLDR
Four West Malaysian shrew populations of the genus Crocidura were investigated through their karyotype and allozyme variations, and, in part, by interfertility experiments, indicating that both karyotypes correspond to a relatively ancient separation. Expand
A Contribution to the Taxonomy and Ecology of Shrews (Crocidura zimmermanni and C. suaveolens) from Crete and Turkey
TLDR
Chromosomal and biochemical investigations of shrews from genus Crocidura from Crete and Turkey show that C. russula zimmermanni Wettstein, 1953 is a well defined species. Expand
The HSR on chromosome 1 of the house mouse, Mus domesticus: distribution and frequency in Switzerland.
TLDR
There was no strong association between the geographic distribution of the HSR and the areas of occurrence of metacentrics, however, at Chiggiogna theHSR was found on Rb (1.3). Expand
The karyotype of the Middle-African hedgehog Atelerix albiventris Wagner, 1841 and its cytotaxonomical relationships to other Erinaceinae (Insectivora: Erinaceidae)
TLDR
Like other hedgehog species investigated hitherto, also the Middle African species Atelerix albiventris has a diploid number of 48 chromosomes, and individual chromosome structures and reactivities permit the recognition of similarities to the Algerian hedgehog Aethechinus algirus and indicate their close relationship. Expand
Genomic Evidence for Cryptic Speciation in Tree Frogs From the Apennine Peninsula, With Description of Hyla perrini sp. nov
TLDR
This system illustrates the speciation continuum of Western-Palearctic tree frogs and identifies additional cryptic lineages of similar divergence to be treated as separate species (H. meridionalis and H. perrini) for the future taxonomic assessment of cryptic diversity in alloparapatric radiations of terrestrial vertebrates. Expand
Population genomics of an exceptional hybridogenetic system of Pelophylax water frogs
TLDR
Two types of hybridogenetic systems in Ticino are found, implying that polyploidy is not the exclusive evolutionary pathway for hybrids to become reproductively independent, and challenge the classical view that Hybridogenetic taxa are necessarily sexual parasites. Expand
