Proceedings of the International Symposium on African Vertebrates, Systematics, Phylogeny, and Evolutionary Ecology: a symposium held at the Zoologisches Forschungsinstitut und Museum Alexander Koenig, Bonn, May , [Karl-L Schuchmann;].   This pioneering volume summarizes the results of diverse research on Pleistocene environments and the cultural and biological evolution of man in Africa. The book includes chapters on Pleistocene stratigraphy and climatic changes throughout the African continent; on the ecology, biology and sociology of African primate and human populations.   Misonne X () African and Indo-Australian Muridae: Musee Royal de L'Afrique Centrale - Tervuren, Belguique Annales Serie N° 8. 1– p.

South Africa - South Africa - Afrikaans literature: The second stream, literature written in Afrikaans, has its origins in the culture and arts of the early Afrikaner nationalist movement.

The genus Aethomys currently includes 11 species, but recent evidence indicates a need for taxonomic revision of the genus. Aethomys chrysophilus (De Winton, ) is a muroid rodent commonly called the red veld rat. A medium-sized rodent with a long, sparsely haired tail, A. chrysophilus is largely parapatric with its sibling species, A. ineptus, and in areas of co-occurrence, determination. Aplin, K. P., P. R.

Abstract. We analyzed two mitochondrial gene fragments to assess genetic divergence within the genus Desmomys endemic to Ethiopia and its phylogenetic relationships with related genera. The phylogenetic analysis supported the monophyly of the Arvicanthini-Otomyini group and revealed that Stochomys is clearly a member of Arvicanthini.

Our study demonstrated that D. harringtoni and D. yaldeni. Intraspecific variation and micro-macroevolution connection: illustration with the late Miocene genus Progonomys (Rodentia, Muridae) - Volume 36 Issue 4 - Vincent. The family comprises two subfamilies: Murinae and Hydromyinae (Australasian water rats).

Some zoologists distinguish five or more subfamilies. There are 80 living genera and 12 extinct ones with more than species. The Muridae are distributed throughout the world, with most species inhabiting tropical and subtropical forests.

Introduction. The Old World Murinae contain well over species and genera. Phylogenetics for this group have been perhaps the most difficult to unravel of all major groups of mammals, to a large extent because of this high level of diversity that evolved over a relatively short time period.

Study of the African diaspora is now a dynamic field in the development of new methods and approaches to African history. This book brings together the latest research on African diaspora in Asia with case studies about India and the Indian Ocean islands.

Mitochondrial DNA sequences of cytochrome b (bp), 12S (bp) and 16S (bp) ribosomal RNA gene fragments were used to investigate the phylogenetic relationships of a group of African rodents referred as the arvicanthines (Family Muridae, Subfamily Murinae).

A total of 49 specimens including all seven genera and 15 of the 24 arvicanthine species currently recognized as. Pamela Willoughby provides a wide-ranging synthesis of current knowledge about the evolution of fully modern humans in Africa during the Middle Palaeolithic / Middle Stone Age.

According to most scholars, our modern ancestors first emerged in Africa and then spread throughout the habitable world. Willoughby brings evidence from mitochondrial DNA, ancient fossils, and archaeological remains 3/5(1). A new species of fossil Mus (Muridae, Rodentia) is described from the Pleistocene fluviatile deposits of the Narmada valley (Central India).

The species, Mus narmadaensis sp. Nov., has a comparatively smaller lower molar which is characterized by a narrow molar with well connected cusps, small anterior expansion of lingual anteroconid, protoconid and metaconid, reduced posterior cingulum in.

The harvest mouse (Micromys minutus) is a small rodent native to Europe and is typically found in fields of cereal crops, such as wheat and oats, in reed beds and in other tall ground vegetation, such as long grass and has reddish-brown fur with white underparts and a naked, highly prehensile tail, which it uses for is the smallest European rodent; an adult may.

Some of them focus on the importance of the species ecological specialization because of its effects on evolutionary processes and the resultant patterns. Particularly, Vrba’s turnover pulse hypothesis and resource-use hypothesis revolve around.

A study of Indigenous Australian DNA has found that Indigenous Australians may have mixed with people of Indian origin about 4, years ago. The same study showed that flint tools and Indian dogs may have been introduced from India at about this time.
