Molecular phylogenies challenge the view that bats belong to the superordinal group Archonta, which also includes primates, tree shrews, and flying lemurs. Some molecular studies also challenge microbat monophyly and instead support an alliance between megabats and representative rhinolophoid microbats from the families Rhinolophidae (horseshoe bats, Old World leaf-nosed bats) and Megadermatidae (false vampire bats). Another molecular study ostensibly contradicts these results and supports… Expand
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of nycteribiid and streblid bat flies (Diptera: Brachycera, Calyptratae): implications for host associations and phylogeographic origins.
Bat flies are a small but diverse group of highly specialized ectoparasitic, obligatory bloodsucking Diptera. For the first time, the phylogenetic relationships of 26 species and five subfamiliesExpand
Phylogenomic Analyses Elucidate the Evolutionary Relationships of Bats
Molecular phylogenetics has rapidly established the evolutionary positions of most major mammal groups, yet analyses have repeatedly failed to agree on that of bats (order Chiroptera). Moreover, theExpand
Molecules, morphometrics and new fossils provide an integrated view of the evolutionary history of Rhinopomatidae (Mammalia: Chiroptera)
BackgroundThe Rhinopomatidae, traditionally considered to be one of the most ancient chiropteran clades, remains one of the least known groups of Rhinolophoidea. No relevant fossil record isExpand
Vespertilioninae systematics: Using mitochondrial and nuclear markers to elucidate phylogenetic relationships
A paucity of useful characters, morphological convergence, and potential rapid radiation has hindered systematists in elucidating evolutionary relationships within Vespertilioninae. In this studyExpand

Two assumptions have framed previous systematic and biogeographic studies of the family Natalidae: that it comprises a few widespread species, and that extant lineages originated in Mexico and/orExpand

Even though marsupials are taxonomically less diverse than placentals, they exhibit comparable morphological and ecological diversity. However, much of their fossil record is thought to be missing,Expand
Evolutionary relationships of the old world fruit bats (Chiroptera, Pteropodidae): Another star phylogeny?
BackgroundThe family Pteropodidae comprises bats commonly known as megabats or Old World fruit bats. Molecular phylogenetic studies of pteropodids have provided considerable insight intoExpand

Molecular evidence regarding the origin of echolocation and flight in bats
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of bat relationships using DNA sequence data from four nuclear genes and three mitochondrial genes indicates that microbat families in the superfamily Rhinolophoidea are more closely related to megabats than they are to other microbats, which implies that echolocation systems either evolved independently in rhinlophoids and otherMicrobat monophyly is uncorroborated by molecular data.

Phylogenetic relations between microbats, megabats and primates (Mammalia: Chiroptera and Primates).
We examine the paraphylectic hypothesis of bat origins, both in the light of previous discussions, and in the light of new evidence from our analyses of neurological traits and wing morphology.Expand
Complete Mitochondrial Genome of a Neotropical Fruit Bat, Artibeus jamaicensis, and a New Hypothesis of the Relationships of Bats to Other Eutherian Mammals
TLDR
The hypothesis regarding the relationship of bats to other eutherian mammals is concordant with previous molecular studies and contrasts with hypotheses based solely on morphological criteria and an incomplete fossil record. Expand
Base-compositional biases and the bat problem. III. The questions of microchiropteran monophyly.
TLDR
Among the outgroups, an apparent sister-group relation of Dermoptera and Primates suggests that flying lemurs do not represent the ancestors of some or all bats; yet the position of Cynocephalus in the tree indirectly strengthens the argument that true flight could have evolved more than once among bats.

Monophyletic Origin of the Order Chiroptera and Its Phylogenetic Position Among Mammalia, as Inferred from the Complete Sequence of the Mitochondrial DNA of a Japanese Megabat, the Ryukyu Flying Fox (Pteropus dasymallus)
TLDR
The complete sequence of the mtDNA of a Japanese megabat, the Ryukyu flying fox, is determined and the monophyly of the order Chiroptera and its close relationship to Fereuungulata is suggested. Expand
Phylogeny of the Pteropodidae (Mammalia, Chiroptera) Based on Dna Hybridization, With Evidence for Bat Monophyly
TLDR
It appears that anatomical specialisations for nectar- and pollen-feeding evolved (or were lost) several times within Pteropodidae, which supports bat monophyly and the family's Australo-Pacific or south-east Asian origin. Expand
The phylogenetic position of the Talpidae within eutheria based on analysis of complete mitochondrial sequences.
TLDR
The analyses of complete mtDNAs challenge the maintenance of the order Lipotyphla as a taxonomic unit and support the elevation of the Soricomorpha to the level of an order, as previously proposed in some morphological studies. Expand

A molecular view of Primate Supraordinal Relationships from the Analysis of Both Nucleotide and Amino Acide Sequences and the Role of the Neurosciences in Primate Evolutionary Biology is presented. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics and the origins of placental mammals
TLDR
The potential weaknesses of limited character and taxon sampling are addressed in a comprehensive molecular phylogenetic analysis of 64 species sampled across all extant orders of placental mammals, providing new insight into the pattern of the early placental mammal radiation. Expand
Integrated fossil and molecular data reconstruct bat echolocation
TLDR
A methodological approach is employed that allows for the integration of molecular and paleontological data in deciphering one of the most innovative features in the evolutionary history of mammals—laryngeal echolocation in bats. Expand
