The Intermediate Horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus affinis) is one of the most common cave species using constant frequency (CF) calls in Southeast Asia. In the past, variations of morphology and echolocation calls within the species have been observed among different geographic populations.
The Cambodian bat fauna is one of the least well-known in the region, as is evidenced by the addition of seven new species to the country’s list in a recent publication from Ith Saveng and colleagues. The authors reviewed specimens collected from around the country over the last 11 y
I am happy to say that our recent publication on the insights into social organization and genetic that can be gained from combining spatially explicit capture data with microsatellite analysis of genetic structure is now available online. The study was conducted at Krau Wildlife Rese
Congratulations to Saveng Ith and his many co-authors (including me :-)) on their new article sorting out the complexities of Rhinolophus coelophyllus and R. shameli. No less than 11 authors from eight institutes and seven countries were involved, a model collaboration. Saveng Ith, Pi
It is widely recognized that the diversity of species that persist in forest fragments is likely to be a reduced subset of that in larger intact systems, but what of the genetic diversity of species holding on in fragments? In this June’s issue of Ecology Letters, Matt Struebig
