Twenty cranial measurements and three body variables were compared among samples of three species of the genus Akodon previously identified by karyotype, using univariate (ANOVAs) and multivariate (Discriminant analyses) methods. A geographic analysis for A. montensis and A. cursor from localities in the State of Rio de Janeiro and adjacent areas was also performed. Akodon montensis presented smaller values for most cranial measurements, whereas A. aff. cursor showed larger values, with A… CONTINUE READING
