Most species of Dendromus climb with the aid of the long digits of the forefeet and hind feet. The opposable digit 5 of the hindfoot which can be opposed to contact digit 1 and the prehensile tail are especially important for climbing and balancing on twigs and grass stems. Some species have a nail rather than a claw on digit 5 of the hindfoot, and tend to be more terrestrial than others (ZIEKUR 2006). The mammary formula is 2 – 2 = 8. 

On a new species of Dendromus (Rodentia, Nesomyidae) from Mount Nimba, Guinea

TLDR
The first time G and C banding were employed for members of the genus Dendromus, and the karyotype of the new species confirms that it may be a sibling species of the D. messorius “complex”, for which the distribution and measure of species diversity in west central Africa are far from resolved.

Small terrestrial mammal distributions in Simien Mountains National Park, Ethiopia: a reassessment after 88 years

TLDR
This study recorded 13 species, comprising 11 rodents and two shrews, all endemic to the Ethiopian Plateau, and found greatest species richness at mid-elevations, consistent with a general pattern found on many other mountains worldwide but less so in Africa.

Annotated checklist, taxonomy and distribution of rodents in Ethiopia

Abstract. We provide an annotated checklist of rodents of Ethiopia. For each species we show a distributional map based on critically revised data from: (1) published literature; (2) museum

The Input of DNA Sequences to Animal Systematics: Rodents as Study Cases

The advent of molecular techniques, and especially the possibility to get DNA sequences that can then be compared between individuals of any taxon using more and more powerful algorithms of analysis,

Rodents of the Menagesha State Forest, Ethiopia, with an emphasis on the endemic Praomys albipes Rüppell 1842

TLDR
Composition and distribution of the rodent fauna were compared with studies in other localities of Ethiopia and the effect of habitat degradation on the distribution of species and its concern was stressed.

TLDR
It seems possible that Pelomys rex may be a forest form which is confined to southwestern Ethiopia, while at least two of the remaining « endemics » (Mus mahomet, Praomys albipes) are likely, to judge from their altit...

Catalogue of the mammals of Ethiopia and Eritrea. 7. Revised checklist, zoogeography and conservation

TLDR
This review of the Ethiopian and Eritrean mammal fauna recognises provisional totals of 277 terrestrial and 11 marine species and concludes that Ethiopian forests have an impoverished fauna compared with those of Uganda and Zaire.

Late Quaternary Climatic Change in Africa

TLDR
This review summarizes current knowledge in one branch of natural geography, the late-Quaternary paleoclimatology of Africa, and indicates that an accurate under­ standing of the nature, amplitude, and timing of changes in the geographical param­ eters of ecological systems is vital.
