nematodes of the family heligmonellidae (trichostrongyloidea) collected from rodents of the ryukyu archipelago and taiwan.six species of the family heligmonellidae (nematoda: trichostrongyloidea), including 3 new species, are recorded from rodents of the subfamily murinae in the ryukyu archipelago and taiwan. heligmonoides ikeharai n. sp. from tokudaia osimensis muenninki on mt. yonaha, okinawa island, is characterized by extremely long spicules and hypertrophied ridges in the prevulval region. heligmonoides taiwanensis n. sp. from apodemus draco on mt. alishan, taiwan, is distinguished from other members of the ge ...19902380855
sequencing and analysis of complete mitochondrial genome of apodemus draco (rodentia: arvicolinae).the genus apodemus are the most common small rodents in fields. they are also one of the best species for biogeographic study and understanding the environmental changes. in this study, the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of apodemus draco is determined. the mitogenome is 16 220 bp in length and contains 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal rna genes, 22 transfer rna genes and a control region, with a base composition of 35.1% a, 29.0% t, 23.8% c and 12.1% g. the nucleotide sequence data ...201627158789
hoarding decisions by edward's long-tailed rats (leopoldamys edwardsi) and south china field mice (apodemus draco): the responses to seed size and germination schedule in acorns.co-varying traits in acorns such as seed size and germination schedule are important to influence the behavioural decisions of hoarding rodents. using acorn pairs from cork oak (quercus variabilis) (large size and short germination schedules) serrate oak (q. serrata) (small size and short germination schedule) and qinggang (cyclobalanopsis glauca) (small size and long germination schedule) with contrasting seed size and germination schedule, we conducted a series of experiments to investigate ho ...200919615609
prevalence and diversity of bartonella in rodents of northern thailand: a comparison with bartonella in rodents from southern china.we report results of the first study to investigate the distribution and diversity of bartonella in rodents from thailand. whole blood from 195 rodents, representing six species, was tested for the presence of bartonella species using standard culture techniques. isolates were obtained from 17 (8.7%) of the samples, and 14 of those isolates represented distinct strains, based upon partial sequencing of the citrate synthase (glta) gene. phylogenetic analysis of the isolates and other bartonella s ...200415100459

phylogeography of the south china field mouse (apodemus draco) on the southeastern tibetan plateau reveals high genetic diversity and glacial refugia.the southeastern margin of the tibetan plateau (semtp) is a particularly interesting region due to its topographic complexity and unique geologic history, but phylogeographic studies that focus on this region are rare. in this study, we investigated the phylogeography of the south china field mouse, apodemus draco, in order to assess the role of geologic and climatic events on the tibetan plateau in shaping its genetic structure. we sequenced mitochondrial cytochrome b (cyt b) sequences in 103 i ...201222666478
does scatter-hoarding of seeds benefit cache owners or pilferers?the scatter-hoarding behavior of granivorous rodents plays an important role in seed dispersal and seedling regeneration of trees, as well as the evolution of several well-known mutualisms between trees and rodents in forest ecosystems. because it is difficult to identify seed hoarders and pilferers under field conditions by traditional methods, the full costs incurred and benefits accrued by scatter-hoarding have not been fully evaluated in most systems. by using infrared radiation camera track ...201728688134
