Here we report on the analysis of three rodent sibling species complexes belonging to the African genera Arvicanthis, Acomys and Mastomys. Using cytogenetic and molecular approaches we set out to investigate how karyotype and molecular evolution are linked in these muroid sibling species and, in particular, to what extent chromosomal changes are relevant to cladogenic events inferred from molecular data. The study revealed that each complex is characterized by a distinct pattern of karyotype… CONTINUE READING
