Eliomys quercinus (Linnaeus, ) – Lérot – Overview

Lindsey Paretti – Blood Island. Populations of garden dormice in eastern Europe have declined significantly over the last 30 years, and may now inhabit less than 50 percent of its former range 4. Estimation of divergence time between mitochondrial lineages.

Description of the karyotypic diversity found in Eliomys quercinus and closely related Gliridae species. Our results also suggest that additional, unexpected refuge regions around the Alps exist for the species.

Shortly before giving birth, the female will build a nest, usually a globular structure made of grass, leaves and moss, and lined with hairs and feathers, situated in a hole in a tree or a crook of a branch 3. The bold lines indicate the population subdivisions between clades, the dotted lines the subdivisions between subclades, and the gray lines distinguish southern and northern, and western and eastern, groups of populations in clades 3 and 5 used in Table 2.

The Animal Diversity Web is an educational resource written largely by and for college querxinus. The coat is gray or brown, with a white underside. There is usually only one litter born to a female each year.

At night, they look for food, mainly eating larger insectssuch as grasshoppers and beetlesand snailseggs, young nestlings quercinu, small rodentsand spidersas well as berriesfruitand nutssuch as acorns and beechnuts.

Garden dormouse habitat The misleadingly-named garden dormouse actually primarily inhabits woodland, from sea level up to an altitude of 2, metres 4. A simple method for estimating evolutionary rates of base substitutions through comparative studies eoiomys nucleotide sequences. Dormice curl into a ball before hibernation.

Eliomys quercinus

Extant species of family Gliridae Dormice. Taxonomic consideration of Eliomys populations. Phylogeography of a nematode Heligmosomoides polygyrus in the western Palearctic region: Thus, this colonization was the result of passive or active transportation by humans Dobson ; Ramalhinho and Libois Blog Friday 05 October Wildscreen With: The contrasting pattern of divergence mirrors measures of genetic diversity obtained for both species, which are higher in E. The network showed a general congruence with the phylogenetic reconstruction, because the same 6 clades and subclades of Eliomys sp.

Masked mouse-tailed dormouse Myomimus personatus Roach’s mouse-tailed dormouse Myomimus roachi Setzer’s mouse-tailed dormouse Myomimus setzeri. Mismatch distribution for Eliomys quercinus based on cytochrome- b gene sequences for the Alpine and Iberian clades.

Like other dormice, the garden dormouse is an agile rodent, known for its ability to accumulate fat and hibernate for long periods 3. Natural hybridization between extremely divergent chromosomal races of the common shrew Sorex araneusSoricidae, Soricomorpha: Karyotypic relationships of the garden dormouse Eliomys quercinus from central Europe.

The mitochondrial lineages found in E. We also thank P. Clades and subclades are indicated following the results obtained for the phylogenetic analyses.

The mean transition to transversion ratio was 4. Eliomys quercinus is found throughout Europe to Asia to North Africa. Therefore, an approximate timing of divergence between the observed mitochondrial lineages was calculated on the quericnus of the percentage of GD obtained with a distance analysis K2P distance- Kimuraand was corrected for ancestral mitochondrial DNA mtDNA polymorphism, as proposed by Avise using the formula: The garden dormouse, Eliomys quercinusis a rodent from the family Gliridae.
