Abstract. Thainycteris aureocollaris is a rare vespertilionid bat species reported from remote forest habitats of Lao PDR, Vietnam, and Thailand. In 15 September 2015, one Vespertilionid bat with a well-defined ochraceous collar running from the base of ears across the throat was collected at Shuijia Village, Guizhou Province, China. Based on its morphological characteristics and phylogenetic inference using partial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene, it was identified as T. aureocollaris…

A new species of vespertilionid bat from Taiwan and a revision of the taxonomic status of Arielulus and Thainycteris (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae)
On morphological and chromosomal grounds Pipistrellus (Arielulus) subgenus is elevated to generic rank and the recently described genus Thainycteris has been synonymized with Arielulus . Besides this
Female philopatry and limited male-biased dispersal in the Ussuri tube-nosed bat, Murina ussuriensis
Examination of levels of dispersal and relatedness based on analyses of the mitochondrial D-loop and 12 nuclear microsatellite markers in the woodland specialist Ussuri tube-nosed bat suggests differences in environmental and behavioral variables may influence movement ecology of individuals at these 2 sites and consequently fine-scale genetic structure within this species.
Population genetic structure and natal philopatry in the widespread North American bat Myotis lucifugus
The pattern of structure was complex and demonstrates that unequal gene flow among maternity colonies is occurring and that the co-occurrence of breeding populations within maternity colonies and/or inbreeding could be confounding estimates of population genetic structure among these colonies.
The Role of DNA Barcodes in Understanding and Conservation of Mammal Diversity in Southeast Asia
The results suggest that mammal species richness within the region may be underestimated by at least 50%, and there are higher levels of endemism and greater intra-specific population structure than previously recognized.
Mating patterns, relatedness and the basis of natal philopatry in the brown long‐eared bat, Plecotus auritus
The results of this study suggest that kin selection cannot account for colony stability and natal philopatry in P. auritus, which may instead be explained by advantages accrued through the use of familiar and successful roost sites, and through long‐term associations with conspecifics.
Mate fidelity and intra-lineage polygyny in greater horseshoe bats
It is suggested that when females engage in mate fidelity and intra-lineage polygyny, kin ties among female roost mates will be strengthened, thereby potentially contributing to social group cohesiveness and revealing the hidden complexity that can underlie polygynous breeding.
Modeling of species distributions with Maxent: new extensions and a comprehensive evaluation
This paper presents a tuning method that uses presence-only data for parameter tuning, and introduces several concepts that improve the predictive accuracy and running time of Maxent and describes a new logistic output format that gives an estimate of probability of presence.
Median-joining networks for inferring intraspecific phylogenies.
A method for constructing networks from recombination-free population data that combines features of Kruskal's algorithm for finding minimum spanning trees by favoring short connections, and Farris's maximum-parsimony (MP) heuristic algorithm, which sequentially adds new vertices called "median vectors", except that the MJ method does not resolve ties.
Causes and consequences of living in closed societies: lessons from a long‐term socio‐genetic study on Bechstein’s bats
It is suggested that closed societies in Bechstein’s bats are likely caused by a combination of benefits from cooperation with familiar colony members and parasite pressure, and consequences include increased sensitivity to demographic fluctuations and limits to dispersal during colony foundation, which have broad implications for conservation.
A rapid bootstrap algorithm for the RAxML Web servers.
This work developed, implemented, and thoroughly tested rapid bootstrap heuristics in RAxML (Randomized Axelerated Maximum Likelihood) that are more than an order of magnitude faster than current algorithms and can contribute to resolving the computational bottleneck and improve current methodology in phylogenetic analyses.
