AKODON CURSOR PDF

Akodon cursor and A. As they can only be separated based on the presence or absence of a gall bladder or by their karyotypes, previously collected individuals in scientific collections that had not these characters annotated cannot be used in any further study with certainty. The purpose of our study was to assess whether geometric morphometrics of the skull and mandible could identify and separate specimens of A. We used 74 adult specimens 48 - A. We digitized 24, 22, 25, 13 landmarks on images of their skulls in dorsal, ventral, and lateral views and mandible, respectively. We found significant sexual shape dimorphism in A.

We digitized 24, 22, 25, 13 landmarks on images of their skulls in dorsal, ventral, and lateral views and mandible, respectively. We found significant sexual shape dimorphism in A. Part of the observed variation in shape of the skull and mandible of the two species are likely related to size allometry , while the lack of adequate ecological information hinders any evaluation of whether skull differences are related to feeding habits.
