Population Genetic Structure of the Endangered Kaiser’s Mountain Newt, Neurergus kaiseri (Amphibia: Salamandridae)
Species often exhibit different levels of genetic structuring correlated to their environment. However, understanding how environmental heterogeneity influences genetic variation is difficult becauseExpand

Phylogeography and Taxonomic Status of the Greater Mouse-Tailed Bat Rhinopoma microphyllum (Chiroptera: Rhinopomatidae) in Iran
The taxonomic status of the greater mouse-tailed bat (Rhinopoma microphyllum) in Iran is not clear and researchers have reported conflicting results. The initial suggestion of the presence of twoExpand

Postnatal Growth and Wing Development in Kuhl's Pipistrelle Pipistrellus kuhlii (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) in Captivity
2at 88 d of age. The aspect ratio showed a high degree of scatter in the early stages of life, which decreased in the latter period of growth. Additionally, linear regression equations, confidenceExpand

Historical explanation of genetic variation in the Mediterranean horseshoe bat Rhinolophus euryale (Chiroptera: Rhinolophidae) inferred from mitochondrial cytochrome-b and D-loop genes in Iran
Abstract Molecular phylogeography and species distribution modelling (SDM) suggest that late Quaternary glacial cycles have portrayed a significant role in structuring current population geneticExpand

Taxonomic Evaluation of the Greater Horseshoe Bat Rhinolophus ferrumequinum (Chiroptera: Rhinolophidae) in Iran Inferred from the Mitochondrial D-Loop Gene
To examine the level of genetic differentiation in the sequences of the mitochondrial D-loop gene of Rhinolophus ferrumequinum, and to evaluate the current taxonomic status of this species, 50 tissueExpand

Taxonomic evaluation of the bent-winged bat (Miniopterus) populations occurring in Iran inferred from mitochondrial cytochrome-b sequences
Abstract We studied the genetic differentiation and taxonomy of the bent-wing bat (Miniopterus) populations occurring in Iran by analyzing the mitochondrial cytochrome-b (687 bp) sequences. MolecularExpand

Echolocation call frequency and mitochondrial control region variation in the closely related bat species of the genus Rhinolophus (Chiroptera: Rhinolophidae) occurring in Iran: implications for
There is a high level of morphological similarity among rhinolophid species leading to problematic taxonomic identifications. We undertook analyses of mitochondrial DNA gene sequences (D-loop), alongExpand

First insights into the population genetic structure and the phylogeographic status of the Mehely’s horseshoe bat Rhinolophus mehelyi (Chiroptera: Rhinolophidae) in Iran inferred from mitochondrial
Abstract Mehely’s horseshoe bat, Rhinolophus mehelyi Matschie 1901, is a medium-sized rhinolophid with a discontinuous distribution from North Africa and southern Europe through Asia Minor, Anatolia,Expand

Mitochondrial DNA marker (D-loop) reveals high genetic diversity but low population structure in the pale bent-wing bat (Miniopterus pallidus) in Iran
Abstract This study investigates the population genetic structure of Miniopterus pallidus using the D-loop region of mitochondrial DNA (331 bp) from 13 localities in Iran. We found a high number ofExpand
