The evolutionary history of Spalacidae is reviewed taxonomically, paleontologically and neontologically. We focused selectively on taxonomy, biogeography, paleontology and evolutionary origins, chromosomal evolution, population biology and the species concept in Spalacidae. We concluded that the taxonomy of Spalacidae needs a modern revision based on chromosome and molecular-genetic data, beside that of morphology, physiology and behavior. The subterranean Spalacidae originated probably from a… CONTINUE READING
