(American Museum of Natural History, 2018-01-31)
This is the first installment of a revision of the didelphid marsupial genus Philander, commonly known as gray four-eyed opossums. Although abundant and widespread in lowland tropical forests from southern Mexico to northern ...
Dynamics of species composition of small non-volant mammals from the northern Cordillera Central of Colombia
(De Gruyter, 2015-11-01)
On the basis of our recent fieldwork and historical records, we document the diversity of small non-volant mammals in the northern end of Cordillera Central of Colombia, an important region in the context of vertebrate ...
Phylogenetic relationships of Chacodelphys (Marsupialia: Didelphidae: Didelphinae) based on ¿ancient¿ DNA sequences
(Oxford University Press, 2016-03-01)
Morphological character data are inadequate to resolve the evolutionary relationships of the didelphid genus Chacodelphys, which previous phylogenetic analyses have alternatively suggested might be the sister taxon of ...
Rapid mitochondrial genome sequencing based on Oxford Nanopore Sequencing and a proxy for vertebrate species identification
(John Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2020-01-01)
Molecular information is crucial for species identification when facing challenging morphology-based specimen identifications. The use of DNA barcodes partially solves this problem, but in some cases when PCR is not an ...
