Thirty specimens of Glis glis orientalis born in captivity were used in this study. In captivity, animals were fed on hazelnuts, chestnut, apple, biscuit, acorn and sunflower seeds under uncontrolled conditions. Cranial and dentition features were examined from 45 days to 1824 days. At the age of 45 days, teeth were not worn, the cusp pattern of P4 was not recognisable, and the cusps of M3 and M3 had not erupted from dentary. In 126 days old, cusp line of M3 and M3 reached M2 and M2, and the cusp of P4 had developed. In 186 days old, tooth had started to wear.

A total of 253 specimens belonging to the genus Apodemus were examined from 45 localities in Turkey based on morphometric and biochemical analyses. Six different Apodemus species were distributed; A. sylvaticus was recorded only from Thrace (European part of Turkey), A. iconicus throughout Turkey, except Thrace and south-eastern Anatolia, A. flavicollis from Turkey (rare in central and eastern Anatolia), A. uralensis from Marmara and Black Sea Region, A. agrarius from the northern parts of Thrace, and A. mystacinus from Asiatic Turkey. Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) of the data showed a high heterogeneity among Apodemus species. Out o . . .f 28 morphometric variables, 27 displayed significant heterogeneity among groups (p < 0.001). The first three discriminant functions explained 96.6% of the total variation. Sylvaemus species (A. flavicollis, A. iconicus, A.uralensis and A. sylvaticus) showed overlapping distribution with each other and two other species A. mystacinus and A. agrarius were formed a separate clusters. Based on ten loci, it was determined that Udh - 1, Mdh-s, ?-Gpdh and Me were distinguishing characters for A. sylvaticus, A. uralensis, A. flavicollis and A. iconicus. Idh-1, Mdh-S, ?-Gpdh, and Me were polymorphic loci, and deviated from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. The greatest genetic differentiation was originated from Me, but the Idh had the smallest genetic differentiation among polymorphic loci. UPGMA dendrograms showed that A. flavicollis was genetically the closest to A. iconicus, but the most distant to A. mystacinus Daha fazlası Daha az

The karyotypes of three vespertilionid bat species from Turkey were examined. The karyotypes of Eptesicus serotinus and Eptesicus bottae were found to be identical in diploid number (2n) and fundamental number of chromosomal arms (NF) with 2n = 50, NF = 52 and NFa = 48. The karyotypes were found as 2n = 42, NF = 54, and NFa = 50 for Nyctalus noctula. The karyological characteristics of E. bottae anatolicus and N. noctula were studied for the first time from Turkey.
