Taxonomy and redescription of the Swamp Antechinus, Antechinus minimus (E. Geoffroy) (Marsupialia: Dasyuridae)
TLDR
Based on an assessment of morphology and DNA, it is concluded that A. minimus is both distinctly different from all extant congeners and that the two existing subspecies of Swamp Antechinus are appropriately taxonomically characterised. Expand
Life history, breeding biology and movement in a new species of carnivorous marsupial, the buff-footed antechinus (Antechinus mysticus) and a sympatric congener, the subtropical antechinus (Antechinus subtropicus)
TLDR
Results showed that A. mysticus followed the synchronous, semelparous breeding strategy seen in all congeners, and provided a foundation for further research and will aid the conservation management of this new species. Expand
Using 3D geometric morphometrics to aid taxonomic and ecological understanding of a recent speciation event within a small Australian marsupial (genus Antechinus)
TLDR
3D geometric morphometrics of the cranium is used to improve taxonomic differentiation and add eco-morphological characterisation of a young cryptic divergence within the marsupial carnivorous genus Antechinus, while providing perspectives on the adaptive origins and potential future threats of mammalian diversity. Expand
The first Antechinus reference genome provides a resource for investigating the genetic basis of semelparity and age-related neuropathologies
TLDR
Comparative genomics revealed interesting expansions in the NMRK2 gene and the protocadherin gamma family, which have previously been associated with aging and age-related dementias respectively. Expand
The first Antechinus reference genome provides a resource for investigating the genetic basis of semelparity and age-related neuropathologies
Antechinus are a genus of mouse-like marsupials that exhibit a rare reproductive strategy known as semelparity and also naturally develop age-related neuropathologies similar to those in humans. WeExpand
Systematics, biogeography and ancestral state of the Australian marsupial genus Antechinus (Dasyuromorphia: Dasyuridae), including evolutionary relationships among five new species
TLDR
Overall, increasing aridity from the Miocene to the Pleistocene and a number of well-known biogeographic barriers to mesic species, appear to have driven speciation in Antechinus. Expand
Type specimens of non-fossil mammals in the Australian Museum, Sydney
TLDR
This is the first published list of non-fossil mammal types in the AM Collection since the publication of Krefft’s catalogue in 1864, and includes taxa for which the type series has not been located since publication of the name. Expand
Helminth parasites of Australasian monotremes and marsupials.
This work includes all published records, to April 2015, of the helminths occurring in Australasian monotremes and marsupials, with due regard for synonymy and an attempt to include life historyExpand
Phylogenetic relationships of dasyuromorphian marsupials revisited
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of dasyuromorphians are reassessed using a large molecular database comprising previously published and new sequences for both nuclear (nDNA) and mitochondrial (mtDNA) genes from the numbat, most living species of Dasyuridae, and the recently extinct marsupial wolf, to suggest that Thylacinidae is sister to Myrmecobiidae + Dasyurids.
