A Review on of the Subspecies of Dremomys lokriah (Hodgson 1836)

  title={A Review on of the Subspecies of Dremomys lokriah (Hodgson 1836)},
  author={Paromit Chatterjee and Kailash Chandra and Goutam Kumar Saha},
Rodent research became less explored in India for the last few decades, leaving an immense information gap on each species. Most of the known rodent species in India are data deficient on the aspects of taxonomy as well as on ecology. Past studies on the species Dremomys lokriah revealed a number of miss-concluded information. Present study delineated the subspecies of D. lokriah based on pelage colouration, cranial features and multivariate analysis using the data available in the literature… 



Taxonomic Study on Subspecies of Dremomys lokriah (Sciuridae,Rodent) From Southwest China--Note With A New Subspecies

This paper peports a result for taxonomic research of subspecies on Orange-bellied Himalayan squirrel (Dremomys lokriah) from southwest China, and believes that D.L.l.subflaviventris from southeast Tibet and Mt.Gaoligong border between Burma and Yunnan,China was a wild subspecies.

Is coat-colour polymorphism in Eurasian red squirrels (Sciurus vulgaris L.) adaptive?

It is suggested that the combination of a denser and more cryptic fur in black morphs gives them a selective advantage over other coat colour morphs in wet, dense spruce-fir forests of the Italian Alps, which could explain the within- and between population variation in the relative frequencies of coat colour phenotypes observed in this study.

A review of Gloger's rule, an ecogeographical rule of colour: definitions, interpretations and evidence

Since humidity seems to be the core climatic variable behind Gloger's rule, it is suggested that the two most plausible mechanisms are camouflage and protection against parasites/pathogens, the latter possibly through pleiotropic effects on the immune system.

Colour vision in Finlayson’s squirrel (Callosciurus finlaysonii): is conspicuous pelage colour useful for species recognition?

Finlayson’s squirrel, Callosciurus finlaysonii, is distributed in lowland forests throughout South-East Asia. Its pelage colour is conspicuous and polymorphic (red, black, white and a mixture of

Thermogenic Capacity in Gray and Black Morphs of the Gray Squirrel, Sciurus carolinensis

During cold exposure, winter-acclimatized gray squirrels are capable of a peak metabolic rate 13.5 times their predicted standard metabolic rate (SMR), and black individuals have a greater NST capacity and a lesser rate of estimated heat loss in the cold than gray ones.
