Species Akodon mollis soft grass mouse. An unambiguous test of the Ecological Gradient hypothesis was not possible; however, Montane Vicariance was suggested in two instances where mice at similar elevations on different mountains were closely related. Superfamily Muroidea mice, rats, gerbils, and relatives.


Classification Kingdom Animalia animals Animalia: Additional Information Encyclopedia of Life. Phylogenetic analyses of the mitochondrial Cytochrome b gene showed spatial structuring of A.

IUCN Red List of Threatened Species

Partial akodpn squares and multivariate multiple regression analyses showed a significant association between skull shape and environment. More extensive sampling, including more elevational belts and mountain replicates, additional molecular markers, and the inclusion of isolation by resistance methods, might help to shed further light on speciation by Andean mammals. This dissertation reviews the possible role of these mechanisms in the speciation of mammals in Andean habitats.

The soft grass mouse, Akodon mollis, was chosen as the test organism because millis its wide elevational and latitudinal range.

Sigmodontinae in the Andes of Peru. Deeper lineages at the southern limit of the species coincide with the oldest part of the Andes, while shallower clades were found in the more recent northern Andes.

Genus Akodon grass mice and South American field mice. Help us improve the site by taking our survey. Bilateria bilaterally akoson animals.

Infraclass Eutheria placental mammals. Subfamily Sigmodontinae South American rats and mice. The most important variables were associated with wkodon, and these almost perfectly correlated with elevation.


To cite this page: Parapatric and allopatric speciation, in the forms of the Ecological Gradients and Montane Vicariance hypotheses respectively, have been suggested to explain the diversification of Andean fauna. Suborder Myomorpha mice, rats, gerbils, jerboas, and relatives. Differentiation of the Akodon mollis Species Group Rodentia: The Animal Diversity Web is an educational resource written largely by and for college students.

Superclass Gnathostomata jawed vertebrates.

ADW doesn’t cover all species in the world, nor does it include all the latest scientific information about organisms we describe. Nevertheless, a clear association between morphology and elevation was not found. Please see our brief essay. Geographic distance did not explain patterns of genetic variation in Akocon populations.
