The ADW Team gratefully acknowledges their support. The soft grass mouse, Akodon mollis, was chosen as the test organism because of its wide elevational and latitudinal range.

Some features of this site may not work without it. Nevertheless, a clear association between morphology and elevation was not found.

The Animal Diversity Web online. An unambiguous test of the Ecological Gradient hypothesis was not possible; however, Montane Vicariance was suggested in two instances where mice at similar elevations on different mountains were closely related.

More extensive sampling, including more elevational belts and mountain replicates, additional molecular markers, and the inclusion of isolation by resistance methods, might help to shed further light on speciation by Andean mammals.

Suborder Myomorpha mice, rats, gerbils, jerboas, and relatives. The mechanisms responsible for the species composition of montane biotas remain poorly understood. Bilateria bilaterally symmetrical animals.

Deeper lineages at the southern limit of the species coincide with the oldest part of the Andes, while shallower clades were found akovon the more recent northern Andes.


The most important variables were associated with temperature, and these almost perfectly correlated with elevation. Sigmodontinae in the Andes of Peru. Infraclass Eutheria placental mammals.

Partial least squares and multivariate multiple regression analyses showed a significant association between skull shape and environment.

Superfamily Muroidea mice, rats, gerbils, and relatives. Parapatric and allopatric speciation, in the forms of the Ecological Gradients and Montane Vicariance hypotheses respectively, have mkllis suggested to explain the diversification of Andean fauna.
