By Georgy I. Shenbrot, Boris R. Krasnov

Any dwelling organism is shipped somewhere. plenty of details on species documents are scattered in courses and museum catalogues, yet just a couple of taxa have merited sufficient consciousness for a compilation of the to be had information on their geographic distribution. This booklet is aimed to fill during this hole for the species of the rodent subfamily Arvicolinae. It represents an atlas of the worldwide distribution of all 139 arvicoline species. Distribution maps are compiled from documents from the literature and museum catalogues. A map for every species is gifted as either checklist issues and a polygon of a expected distribution. The checklist issues have been georeferenced whereas the polygons of estimated distributions have been built utilizing the GARP set of rules. The e-book offers an inventory of and distributional info for the subspecies in addition to taxonomic notes and references. the quantity is addressed to experts in theriology, taxonomists, biogeographers and conservationists. it will likely be of use to any zoological library.

Californicus and M. mexicanus, are considered as members of the subgenera Mynomes and Microtus s. , respectively, although with some reservations related to unclear interspecific affinities of the two latter species (Musser and Carleton, 1993; Pavlinov, 2003). Molecular data indicate that 30 (a) M. richardsoni and M. chrotorrhinus are not phylogenetically related, (b) M. californicus and M. mexicanus are sister taxa and (c) “californicus/ mexicanus” clade is phylogenetically related (although not particularly close) to M.
