The woodmouse (Apodemus sylvaticus) and yellow-necked fieldmouse (Apodelnus flavicollis) are sympatric and even syntopic in many regions throughout their European range. Their field discrimination on the basis of external characters is a real challenge for many fields of research. The problem is even more complicated in the Alpine chain where they live sympatrically with a third similar species: A. alpicola. A rapid and simple method is proposed to discriminate the three species in processing field-collected biopsies as well as ethanol-preserved museum samples. [less ▲]

Conflicting hypotheses have been formulated regarding the origin of wood mouse (Apodemus sylvaticus) populations in northern Africa. In this study, the mtDNA restriction patterns of mice (n = 28) collected in Tunisia and Morocco are compared with those of representatives from southern Europe (n = 102). The neighbour-joining tree confirms the existence of the three lineages previously found in the Mediterranean area: western, Tyrrhenian-Balkan, and Sicilian. The western group is isolated from the two others, with bootstrap values of 89 and 95%. Northern African patterns are included in the western group. Their variability is low, the same pattern being shared by five Tunisian and all Moroccan animals (n = 18), caught either in the north of the country (Cap Spartel) or in the south (Marrakech). This implies that northern African wood mouse populations have a southwestern European origin and that their presence in the region is probably recent, which corresponds to both paleontological data and the hypothesis of anthropogenic introduction.

This paper reports for the first time, the presence of Platypsyllus castoris Rits. in Belgium. The insects were collected on a road killed European beaver found in Anseremme (Dinant) in December 1999. This beaver is one of those that were recently illegaly reintroduced in various parts of southern Belgium. [less ▲]

During the course of a study on the use of habitat by the common serotine bat in Belgium, we have had recourse to radiotracking and the prospecting with an ultrasonic detector. The results obtained with the two techniques used have been compared. The preferred habitats of the bats were found identical with the two techniques, with a preferece for leafy environments. However, the interpretation of the results affords different information depending on the technique adopted. We have thus compared the limits of each of the two techniques. In conclusion, the results obtained by radiotracking and with the ultrasonic detector are at the same time virtually the same but also complementary. [less ▲]

Here, notes on the origin and known distribution are given for each species, together with taxonomical and ecological cmments. Except for bats all the remaining species seem to have been introduced under the influence of the man's exploratory and commercial activities [less ▲]

In previous studies, the presence of three main lineages of wood mice mtDNA was described in western Europe: a first one distributed from the Pyrenees to Scandinavia. a Thyrrenian one occurring in peninsular Italy, Elba, Corsica and Sardinia and a third one restricted to Sicily and Marettimo. Do the Iberian wood mice belong to one of these lineages? In order to answer this question, animals were trapped all over the Iberian peninsula (11 sites) as well as in three of the Balearic islands. Comparisons with specimens from the above mentioned lineages were made. From 158 animals trapped in 30 sites, 78 different mtDNA restriction patterns were obtained and compared using the NEI and LI index ((Nei M and Li WH, (1979). Mathematical model for studying genetic variation in terms of restriction endonucleases. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 76: 5269-5273) of nucleotide divergence. A neighbour-joining tree, with a specimen of Apodemus flavicollis as outgroup, was then computed from the similarity matrix. Apodemus flavicollis is well separated from all the A. sylvaticus and all the Iberian restriction patterns are clustered with those of continental France, showing a great similarity level between the Iberian and north-west European animals. This group is well separated from the Sicilian and from the Tyrrhenian ones. These results suggest that the Pyrenees are not a biogeographic barrier for the wood mouse and that the postglacial recolonisation of western Europe by that species has its origin in populations which, during the latest Ice age, were living in refuges situated in southern France or in the Iberian peninsula. Because the Balearic restriction patterns are clustered in a lineage joining Iberian pattern at a low divergence level, we suggest that their origin is continental Spain or southern France. [less ▲]
