Vespertilionidae is the largest chiropteran family that comprises species of different specialization and wide geographic distribution. Up to now, only a few vespertilionid species have been studied by molecular cytogenetic approaches. Here, we have investigated the karyotypic relationships of 4 Vespertilionidae species from Siberia by G-banding and comparative chromosome painting. Painting probes from Aselliscus stoliczkanus were used to establish interspecific homologous chromosomal segments…

Cytogenetic Investigations in Emballonuroidea. II. Chromosome Painting in Nycteridae Reveals Cytogenetic Signatures Pointing to Common Ancestry of Nycteris and Emballonura
TLDR
An additional synapomorphy for Vespertilioniformes is described, i.e. the synteny of a segment homologous to human chromosome 13 and ECU12a-22a in elements homologueous to Myotis chromosome MMY6.
Variations on a theme: Karyotype comparison in Eurasian Myotis species and implications for phylogeny
TLDR
Variation has been found concerning position and extent of heterochromatic segments and location and number of nucleolus organizer regions (NORs) in 17 Eurasian Myotis taxa and in three cases these dif- ferences may be of relevance for phylogenetic relationships.
Two new cytotypes reinforce that Micronycteris hirsuta Peters, 1869 does not represent a monotypic taxon
TLDR
The results corroborate the hypothesis of karyotypic megaevolution within Micronycteris, and strong evidence for this is that the entire chromosome complement of M. hirsuta was shown to be derivative with respect to species compared in this study.
Chromosome Evolution in Bats as Revealed by FISH: The Ongoing Search for the Ancestral Chiropteran Karyotype
TLDR
The results show that the prevailing mode of chromosomal evolution in bats is Robertsonian translocation with a large number of convergent events.
The diversity of lifecycles and their role in the evolution of basic chromosome numbers in various living species
TLDR
The significant variation among BCNs of the ancestors of the three mammal subclasses, which diverged tens of millions of years ago, suggests that the evolution of BCNs in the relatives of marsupials and placentals involved polyploidy followed by dysploidY.
First Record of the Genus Plecotus from Southeast Asia with Notes on the Taxonomy, Karyology and Echolocation Call of P. homochrous from Vietnam
TLDR
Although rarely encountered, Plecotus is likely to be widely distributed at the higher elevations of the Himalayan chain in southern China and the adjoining northern areas of Vietnam, Laos, and Myanmar and strongly support the importance of the mountainous areas within the Indo-Burma biodiversity hotspot.
Karyotypes of the mammals of Turkey and neighbouring regions: a review
TLDR
Available data on karyotypes of the mammals from Turkey and neighbouring regions were summarized and reviewed in respect of their implications to taxonomy and systematics, and previously unpublished data are presented in 20 species.
Chromosomal Evolution in Chiroptera
Chiroptera is the second largest order among mammals, with over 1300 species in 21 extant families. The group is extremely diverse in several aspects of its natural history, including dietary
Karyology of the Bats from the Russian Far East
TLDR
For the first time, the karyotypes and their variation type for the valid bat species in the Russian Far East have been described and the accuracy of chromosome characteristics for 17 of 18 valid species today are improved.
Centre De Coordination Ouest Pour L'etude Et La Protection Des Chauves-souris

The management and the library of Swiss Bat Center warmly thank all the authors who sent their bat publications.

Karyotype relationships of six bat species (Chiroptera, Vespertilionidae) from China revealed by chromosome painting and G-banding comparison
TLDR
The results show that Robertsonian translocation is the main mode of karyotype evolution in Vespertilionidae and that the addition of heterochromatic material also plays an important role in the karyotypic evolution of the genera Tylonycteris and Nyctalus.
Cross-species chromosome painting in bats from Madagascar: the contribution of Myzopodidae to revealing ancestral syntenies in Chiroptera
TLDR
Karyotypic relationships among four species, representing four families of Chiroptera endemic to the Malagasy region using cross-species chromosome painting, revealed ancestral syntenies shared between Myzopoda and other bat species of the infraorders Pteropodiformes and Vespertilioniformes.
Karyotypic evolution and phylogenetic relationships in the order Chiroptera as revealed by G-banding comparison and chromosome painting
TLDR
The results substantiate that Robertsonian translocation is the main mode of chromosome evolution in the order Chiroptera, with extensive conservation of whole chromosomal arms and provide the first cytogenetic signature rearrangement that supports the grouping of Pteropodidae and Rhinolophoidea in a common clade.
Karyotypic evolution in family Hipposideridae (Chiroptera, Mammalia) revealed by comparative chromosome painting, G- and C-banding.
TLDR
Comparative analysis of the conserved chromosomal segments among five hipposiderid species and outgroup species suggests that bi-armed chromosomes should be included into the ancestral karyotype of Hipposideridae, which was previously believed to be exclusively composed of acrocentric chromosomes.
Phylogenetic relationships of vespertilionid genera (Mammalia: Chiroptera) as revealed by karyological analysis
TLDR
The results allow for the first time an unequivocal classification of the systematically difficult “pipistrelloid” species and suggest the splitting of this heterogenous genus into at least four genera.
Chromosomal Variation and Evolutionary Relationships of Vespertilionid Bats
TLDR
Intergeneric evolutionary relationships were studied in vespertilionid bats using G- and C-band data and a phylogenetic sequence is proposed based on banding patterns, finding that Miniopterus represents a karyological intermediate between the two groups.
Karyotype evolution in Rhinolophus bats (Rhinolophidae, Chiroptera) illuminated by cross-species chromosome painting and G-banding comparison
TLDR
The painting results substantiate the wide occurrence of whole-chromosome arm conservation in Rhinolophus bats and suggest that Robertsonian translocations of different combinations account for their karyotype differences.
Comparative cytogenetics of bats (Chiroptera): The prevalence of Robertsonian translocations limits the power of chromosomal characters in resolving interfamily phylogenetic relationships
TLDR
The results further substantiate the wide occurrence of Robertsonian translocations in bats, with the possible involvement of whole-arm reciprocal translocations (WARTs) and indicate the prevalence of homoplasic events that reduce the reliability of chromosomal characters for resolving interfamily relationships in bats.
A comparative ZOO-FISH analysis in bats elucidates the phylogenetic relationships between Megachiroptera and five microchiropteran families
TLDR
Comparison of neighboring segment combinations found in Chiroptera with those found in other mammalian taxa revealed six synapomorphic features for Chiropteran species, and monophyly of Chiropters is strongly supported.
Chromosomal homologies of the genera Vespertilio, Plecotus and Barbastella (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae)
TLDR
Q-banding (and partly G- banding) patterns of chromosomes were studied in three species of vespertilionid bats: Vespertilio murinus, Plecotus auritus and Barbastella barbastellus to determine the systematic position of these species.
