A new species of fish-eating rat, genus Neusticomys (Sigmodontinae), from Ecuador

Abstract

In this study, the genetic substructure and morphology of the species Neusticomys monticolus was evaluated. A nuclear marker and mitochondrial maker were used to examine phylogeographic structure and to estimate genetic distances. Two statistical measurement analyses were applied to morphological data. These data recovered two morphologically distinct… (More)
