253 Abstract: The bacula, phalli and karyotypes of 15 specimens of Arvicola terrestris were examined. The external and cranial morphology of this species were found to be the same as in previously published papers. The baculum consist of proximal and distal bacula. The phallus is covered with spines. The karyotype has karyological values of 2n= 36, NF= 64 and NFa= 60. The X chromosome is medium-sized submetacentric and the Y chromosome is medium-sized acrocentric.

Variation in the Conventional and Banded Karyotypes among Populations of Arvicola amphibius (L., 1758) (Mammalia: Rodentia) from Turkey

Chromosomal characteristics of water voles (Arvicola amphibius) were studied in ten populations including 33 samples from Anatolia, Turkey, finding variation among Turkish populations was manifested by the number of autosomal arms, positive C-bands and NOR-carrying autosomes.

Distributional, morphological and karyotypic contributions for the Eurasian water vole, Arvicola amphibius (Linnaeus, 1758) (Rodentia: Mammalia), from Turkey

Comparison of the findings with those of other authors indicates that there are karyotypic differences among the chromosomes of the Eurasian water vole related to the morphology of chromosomes.

C-heterochromatin variation and NOR distribution in the karyotype of water vole, Arvicola terrestris (Mammalia, Rodentia)

Populations of water vole from Anatolia resemble in their C-band pattern those studied previously in Azerbaijan, and possibly also in the Balkan peninsula, and they are different in this respect from populations in Central Europe and the other parts of the species range.

Karyotypes of the mammals of Turkey and neighbouring regions: a review

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regions were summarized and reviewed in respect of their implications to taxonomy and systematics, and previously unpublished data are presented in 20 species.

Investigations on the ecology of eurasian water vole, Arvicola amphibius (Rodentia: Mammalia) in Ankara Province.

The population dynamics of Arvicola amphibius were investigated in Ayas (Ankara, Turkey) during the period between August 2005 and July 2006 and the total body length, body weight, reproductive condition, as well as features of habitat were recorded.

The Karyotypes of Some Rodent Species (Mammalia: Rodentia) from Eastern Turkey and Northern Iran with a New Record, Microtus schidlovskii Argyropulo, 1933, from Eastern Turkey

During a field excursion in eastern Turkey and the Zanjan province of Iran, 9 rodent species were captured, and the diploid number of chromosomes (2n), the number of autosomal arms (FNa) and the

The Italian peninsula hosts a divergent mtDNA lineage of the water vole, Arvicola amphibius s.l., including fossorial and aquatic ecotypes

It is believed that the Italian population of water voles belongs to a distinct species, Arvicola italicus Savi, 1838, with the type locality near Pisa, although a morphological assessment of the entire skull is necessary to define it.

The rodent fauna from the Neolithic human settlement of Tepecik-Çiftlik (Niğde, Turkey)

Abstract The primary aim of this study was to establish for the very first time the results on the rodent fauna gathered from the ongoing Neolithic excavations at the Tepecik-Çiftlik site in southern

An Electrophoretic Study on Esterase and Blood Serum Proteins of the Water Vole, Arvicola terrestris (L., 1758) (Mammalia: Rodentia), in Kırşehir Province

There were variations in the globulin, prealbumin and postalbumin regions, while the albumin region was monomorphic, and the esterase enzyme had 2 alleles (A and B), which were coded by 1 locus.



A Phylogeny of New Guinea Rodent Genera Based on Phallic Morphology

The morphology of the male phallus is described for 19 of the 23 genera of New Guinea rodents; 28 species are included among the 72 penises examined, and evidence is presented indicating that Hyomys should be placed in the XJromys group rather than with Pogonomys and Mallomys.
