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 ...
A new species of elephant-shrew (Afrotheria: Macroscelidea: Elephantulus) from South Africa
(American Society of Mammalogists, 2008)
Elephant-shrews (also called sengis, order Macroscelidea) are small-bodied insectivorous mammals with a strictly African distribution. Fifteen species currently are recognized, of which 9 occur in the southern African ...
Phylogenetic relationships of elephant-shrews (Afrotheria, Macroscelididae)
(The Zoological Society of London, 2011)
Elephant-shrews or sengis (Macroscelidea, Afrotheria) are grouped into two subfamilies, Rhynchocyoninae with a single genus and four species, and Macroscelidinae represented by three genera and 13 species. Our current ...
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 ...
