- Post-Messinian evolutionary relationships across the Sicilian channel: mitochondrial and nuclear markers link a new green toad from Sicily to African relativesMatthias Stöck
University of California, Berkeley, Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, 3101 Valley Life Sciences Building 3160, Berkeley, CA 94720 3160, USA
BMC Evol Biol 8:56. 2008..To gain insight into the phylogeography of the region, we examine two mitochondrial and two nuclear markers (one is a newly adapted intron marker) in green toads (Bufo viridis subgroup) across that sea barrier, the Strait of Sicily...
- Trapping and handling of North American river otters (Lontra canadensis) in a managed marshNatalia M Belfiore
Department of Animal Science, 1 Shields Avenue, University of California, Davis, California 95616, USA
J Zoo Wildl Med 39:13-20. 2008..This trend is likely attributable to blood draws immediately after the animal had been held in a trap for several hours, in contrast to most other studies, in which blood was drawn days to weeks after being held in captivity...
- Multilocus phylogenetics of a rapid radiation in the genus Thomomys (Rodentia: Geomyidae)Natalia M Belfiore
13101 VLSB 3160, Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, University of California, Berkeley, California 94720, USA
Syst Biol 57:294-310. 2008..This comparison underscores the risks of overreliance on results from concatenation, and ignoring the properties of coalescence, especially in cases of recent, rapid radiations...
