Publications on cryptic species
and species concept in zoology

(PDF-format, articles by Igor Zagorodniuk and colleagues)

 

english version This page devoted to investigations of cryptic diversity of mammals from Ukraine and adjacent countries as well as problems of distinguish and using of the concept of "species" for all cases of establishing of early stages of evolutionary differentiation of populations on the levels of sibling-species, allospecies, quasispecies, transitive taxonomic systems (TTS) etc. This part of biodiversity includes up to 20 % of taxonomic diversity known in classic reviews. This topic in a whole is the joyous flame of biodiversity investigators and permanent headache for fauna investigators and fauna conservators. Every year, number of known (and recognized) mammal species is continuously increasing, and such knowledge should be accessible for each of all, who are studying and describing fauna composition and ecology of mammals, and who are developing action plans for their protection.
