Partial least squares and multivariate multiple regression analyses showed a significant association between skull shape and environment.

Infraclass Eutheria placental mammals. The soft grass mouse, Akodon mollis, was chosen as the test organism because of its wide elevational and latitudinal range. Classification Kingdom Animalia animals Animalia: The most important variables were associated with temperature, and these almost perfectly correlated with elevation.

Class Sarcopterygii lobe-finned fishes and terrestrial vertebrates. JavaScript is disabled for your browser. This dissertation reviews the possible role of these mechanisms in the speciation of mammals in Andean habitats. The mechanisms responsible for the species composition of montane biotas remain poorly understood. Sigmodontinae in the Andes of Peru.

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. Confused by a class within a class or an order within an order?

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. To cite this page: ADW doesn’t cover all species in the world, nor does it include all the latest scientific information about organisms we describe. 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.

Geographic distance did not explain patterns of genetic variation in Andean populations. Suborder Myomorpha mice, rats, gerbils, jerboas, and relatives.

Nevertheless, a clear association between morphology and elevation was not found. Genus Akodon grass mice and South American field mice.

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. Additional Information Encyclopedia of Life.
