Bats (order Chiroptera) are one of the few orders of mammals that echolocate and the only group with the capacity for powered flight. [...] Key Result Here we present a phylogenetic analysis of bat relationships using DNA sequence data from four nuclear genes and three mitochondrial genes (total of 8,230 base pairs), indicating that microbat families in the superfamily Rhinolophoidea are more closely related to megabats than they are to other microbats.Expand
