  • Abstract We studied the genetic differentiation and taxonomy of the bent-wing bat (Miniopterus) populations occurring in Iran by analyzing the mitochondrial cytochrome-b (687 bp) sequences. Molecular data provided by the present study exhibit a closer average K2P genetic distance among the Miniopterus populations in Iran and Azerbaijan (0.05) than that among those in Iran and Turkey (1.38), Iran and Spain (2.93) and Iran and Georgia (3.16). Moreover, the phylogenetic trees showed that all… CONTINUE READING
