For the first time, the eight known genera of Dendromurinae have been studied in a comparative analysis of their morphological characteristics, mainly dental ones. Phylogenetic interpretations based on comparative morphology with other African Muridae sensu lato are discussed. The taxon Dendromurinae appears to be paraphyletic and might be composed of at least 4 independent lineages. A first one includes Dendromus, Steatomys, Malacothrix and Megadendromus; a second one groups Prionomys and…

Phylogenetic position of a monotypic Ethiopian endemic rodent genus Megadendromus (Rodentia, Nesomyidae)
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis of the Nikolaus’s African climbing mouse using mitochondrial (cytochrome b) and nuclear (interphotoreceptor binding protein) gene sequences obtained from a new specimen recently caught in the Bale Mountains in south-eastern Ethiopia suggests that it does not belong to a distinct monotypic genus, but to the genus Dendromus.
On a new species of Dendromus (Rodentia, Nesomyidae) from Mount Nimba, Guinea
TLDR
The first time G and C banding were employed for members of the genus Dendromus, and the karyotype of the new species confirms that it may be a sibling species of the D. messorius “complex”, for which the distribution and measure of species diversity in west central Africa are far from resolved.
Molecular systematics of gerbils and deomyines (Rodentia: Gerbillinae, Deomyinae) and a test of desert adaptation in the tympanic bulla
TLDR
Support is found for the discordance between molecular and morphological phylogenies in gerbils being partly due to convergent adaptations to arid environments, primarily in the suite of traits associated with inflation of the tympanic bullae.
Rodent systematics in an age of discovery: recent advances and prospects
TLDR
An overview of changes in the understanding of the systematics of living rodents, including species recognition and delimitation, phylogenetics, and classification, with emphasis on the last three decades is provided.
Ecological opportunity and incumbency in the diversification of repeated continental colonizations by muroid rodents.
TLDR
An extension of the conventional ecological opportunity model to include a geographic incumbency effect is presented, the largest muroid phylogeny to date is developed, and a pattern of incumbency that is consistent with ecological opportunity is seen, but they did not inhibit initial diversification rates of secondary colonizers.
Updating the Europe–Africa small mammal exchange during the late Messinian
The Messinian salinity crisis (MSC) was an extraordinary geological event that affected the whole Mediterranean region as well as the global marine circulation between 5.97 and c. 5.33 Ma. One of its

Molecular evidence that the spiny mouse (Acomys) is more closely related to gerbils (Gerbillinae) than to true mice (Murinae).
TLDR
DNA hybridization data indicate that the spiny mouse Acomys and two African genera of Murinae, Uranomys and Lophuromys, constitute a monophyletic clade, a view that was recently suggested on the basis of dental characters.
