Phylogenetic relationships of three bat species from TurkeyTürkiye’de bulunan üç yarasa türü arasındaki filogenetik ilişkiler
The applicability of DNA sequencing of the Cytochrome b (encoded by mitochondrial DNA) gene was tested for species delineation and species identification in three bat species (Miniopterus schreiberensii, Myotis blythii and Myotis myotis) sampled from Turkey as a geographic region. Morphologically identified species have also identified genetically. This study showed that DNA markers are valuable molecular methods for biodiversity monitoring programs in Turkey. Sequencing-based comparisons could provide more flexibility in large-scale studies for Turkish bat species.
