Based on this knowledge, we can relate to the difference in habitat that occurred during that period to the divergence of both forms of C. I would like to my loving parents Vijaya Kumaran and Ng Kok Fun whose tender vi support and prayers was always in my mind, my siblings who was always working very hard for the betterment of our family. The remaining pellets were suspended in 50 to j. School of Business Department: The morphometric analysis of Cynopterus species found in Malaysia was aimed at studying the morphological variation of C. The assignment of these bats into the mentioned classification is based on the morphological characters that were observed on the bats.

Morphological variation in the genus Cynopterus of Peninsular Malaysia and Borneo. Similarly populations 91 of M. Balak, Bangi- – 66 P.
Accessed date April 12, The vegetation of the island is described 21-894 kerangas forest with shrub land and drier vegetation at the uphill. The data suggest that Eonycteris diverged from Rousettus at 8.
Rarely netted, this species was previously thought to be confined to Sabah Payne et al. Although the species thrive in various habitats, morphological observation by Payne et al.

Zoogeographic evidence suggests that during the Pliocene or early Pleistocene there was a land bridge from Borneo connecting to the Philippines 92 Heaney, Most of the variation seen within the species involves variation in size and colour Corbet and Hill, A high diversity of bats is found in tropical rainforest, and is directly influenced by the way the forest has been shaped to have a complex ecological interaction among its members both plant and animal of that ecosystem.
As palatal length is associated with feeding and foraging, it can be speculated that the difference observed in palatal length of the forest bborder C.
Comparative morphology and evolution of the female reproductive tract in macroglossine bats Mammalia, Chiroptera. The present study is also in agreement with the findings on other taxa by Inger and Voris that cladogenic speciation occurred in the Sundaland over 1 mya ago.
Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Science They are usually small and some of the characters that distinguish them from Megachiropterans includes small eyes, specialized rostum and the nose pad and lower lips that may be modified in many ways Kunz, ; Vaughan, ; Corbet and Hill, In the present study it was shown that within species except for Macroglossusgenetic divergence value ranges from 0.

Abstrak- Thesis ini mempunyai tiga bahagian utama yang terdiri daripada tiga kajian yang dijalankan pada kelawar di Borneo; bahagian pertama merupakan satu survei kepelbagaian kelawar di beberapa kawasan dalam Sarawak, bahagian kedua merupakan kajian morfometrik yang dijalankan untuk menunjukkan kehadiran spesis ‘cryptic’ didalam Cynopterus brachyotis dan bahagian ketiga membandingkan hubungan filogenetik Macroglossinae yang lama dengan data morfometrik dan DNA.
Lim stated that it was observed that from March to June, C. Thus palatal length also borded differences in both forms and it can be used for further confirmation in determining which C. Baker and Bradley recently observed the genetic divergence within and among species and correlated it with Genetic Species Concept framework based on the Bateson-Dobzhansky- Mueller BDM model.
In Malaysia however only three species coexist together. Vice President for Innovation Research Institute: A study using field survey and published records of the Crocker Range National Park recorded the highest diversity of bats with 41 species Tuen et al, borfer.

The values at group centroids for the first discriminant function were both positive for group 2 and 3 C. Journal of Biogeography, It appeared that these bats were able to survive even though there were natural predators such as owls and eagles recorded in the vicinity Timoh, Tubau camp at Bintulu The trapping area was a small patch of isolated and disturbed forest.
Further comparison was done calculating percentage of species caught with total number of chiropterans found in Borneo. Most of their teeth were worn flat and one of them had no teeth at all. About 88 percent of species of bats are found in the tropical region while the remaining 12 percent occur in the temperate region Findley, Probable explanation to this event is that the species diverged due to different habitats and the available food resource. Confidence limits on phylogenies: At the 9th step only seven variables were used.
Based on previous available literature Start, a; Francis et al, ; Churchill and Zborowski, ; Hall, ; Abdullah and Hall, ; Hall et al, ; Jayaraj et al, a; ; Tuen et al, ; Fukuda, ; Anwarali et al, a; b there are 58 species of bats recorded from these areas Table 2.
Since the probability for Box’s M is less than the level of significance for testing assumptions 0.
