Differentiation of the Akodon mollis Species Group Rodentia: Infraclass Eutheria placental mammals. Geographic distance did not explain patterns of genetic variation in Andean populations.

IUCN Red List of Threatened Species

Family Cricetidae New World rats and mice, voles, hamsters, and relatives. 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. The Animal Diversity Web online. The ADW Team gratefully acknowledges their support.

Connect with us Help us improve the site by taking our survey. Parapatric and allopatric speciation, in the forms of the Ecological Gradients and Montane Vicariance hypotheses respectively, mollus been suggested to explain the diversification of Andean fauna. The mechanisms responsible for the species composition of montane biotas remain poorly understood. Help us improve the site by taking our survey. To cite akodn page: Classification Kingdom Animalia animals Animalia: 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.


Species Akodon mollis soft grass mouse. Sigmodontinae in the Andes of Peru. Confused by a class within a class or an order within an order?

The soft grass mouse, Akodon mollis, was chosen as the test organism because of its wide elevational and latitudinal range. Additional Information Encyclopedia of Life. Superfamily Muroidea mice, xkodon, gerbils, and relatives. Phylogenetic analyses of the mitochondrial Cytochrome b gene showed spatial structuring of A. JavaScript is disabled for your browser.

Nevertheless, a clear association between morphology and elevation was not found. Class Sarcopterygii lobe-finned fishes and terrestrial vertebrates. Superclass Gnathostomata jawed vertebrates. While ADW staff and contributors provide references to books and websites that we believe are reputable, we cannot necessarily endorse the contents of references beyond our control.

Suborder Myomorpha mice, rats, gerbils, jerboas, and relatives. ADW doesn’t cover all species in the world, nor does it include all the latest scientific information about organisms we describe. About Deep Mollia Data. Bilateria bilaterally symmetrical animals. Deeper lineages moolis 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.


Please see our brief essay. Partial least squares and multivariate multiple regression analyses showed a significant association between skull shape and environment.

The Animal Diversity Web is an educational resource written largely by and for college students. Though we edit our accounts for accuracy, we cannot guarantee all information in those accounts.

The most important variables were associated with temperature, and these almost perfectly correlated with elevation.

Soft grass mouse

Subfamily Sigmodontinae South American rats and mice. This dissertation reviews the possible role of these mechanisms in the speciation of mammals in Andean habitats. Genus Akodon grass mice and South American field mice.
