Volume 3, Issue 2 , Winter 2019, , Pages 11-17


  The Luristan newt (Neurerguskaiseri) is an endemic and vulnerable species to the southern Zagros Mountains of Iran, inhabiting streams and ponds in open woodlands, dominated by oak tree (Quercus brantii). In the current study, 20 specimens of the Luristan newt were collected and sequenced for a 651bp ...  Read More

3. New insight into the phylogeny of the orchid bees (Apidae: Euglossini)

Taghi Ghassemi-Khademi

Volume 2, Issue 1 , Winter 2018, , Pages 19-35


  Orchid bees occur across the American continent, from the southern United States to Paraguay and northern Argentina. There are 240 described species of orchid bees. The phylogeny of these bees has been studied by several researchers. In most cases, phylogenetic trees with different topologies have been ...  Read More

Volume 1, Issue 2 , Autumn 2017, , Pages 79-87


  The house shrew (Suncus murinus-S. montanus species complex) is considered to have been unintentionally introduced by humans from their original range to other regions around the Indian Ocean and neighboring seas, but this has yet not fully been investigated. A phylogenetic tree and haplotype network ...  Read More

5. Evaluation of phylogenetic relationships of Antilopini and Oreotragini tribes (Bovidae: Artiodactyla) based on complete mitochondrial genomes

Taghi Khademi

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Summer 2017, , Pages 1-11


  In this research, phylogenetic relationships of 24 species from the subfamily Antilopinae were evaluated using complete mitochondrial genomes. The average base composition of mtDNA sequences was 27.8% T, 25.2% C, 33.7% A, and 13.3% G, showing a strong AT bias (61.5%). The phylogenetic trees were investigated ...  Read More
