Coalescence methods reveal the impact of vicariance on the spatial genetic structure of Elephantulus edwardii (Afrotheria, Macroscelidea)
(Blackwell Publishing, 2007)
Within the Macroscelidea 15 species of elephant-shrews are recognized, of which nine occur in the southern African subregion. The Cape rock elephant-shrew ( Elephantulus edwardii ) is the only strictly endemic South ...
Evolutionary history of the Karoo bush rat, Myotomys unisulcatus (Rodentia: Muridae): disconcordance between morphology and genetics
(The Linnean Society of London, 2011)
Morphological characters have historically been used as the basis for mammalian taxonomic designations and, in a geographic context, subspecies descriptions. Geographic genetic structuring of a species, however, often ...
Relative importance of habitat connectivity in shaping the genetic profiles of two southern African elephant-shrews
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2010)
Aim When interpreting genetic patterns across a landscape it is surprisingly difficult to disentangle the effects of landscape connectivity from those of species biology. Here, the spatial distributions of genetic variation ...
Are road verges corridors for weed invasion? Insights from the fine-scale spatial genetic structure of Raphanus raphanistrum
(European Weed Research Society, 2013)
Raphanus raphanistrum (Brassicaceae) is considered amongst the world’s worst agricultural weeds. We address critical issues in its management by studying the pathway of colonisation at local scales. For this, we assessed ...
