A Genetic Perspective of Mammalian Variation and Evolution in the Indonesian Archipelago: Biogeographic Correlates in the Fruit Bat Genus Cynopterus.


This study investigated allozyme and morphometric variability within the genus Cynopterus, with particular emphasis on C. nusatenggara, which is endemic to Wallacea, the area encompassing the Oriental-Australian biogeographic interface. The genetic distances between Cynopterus species are small by mammalian standards and suggest that this genus has… (More)
