 [No title]
The morphology of osseous middle ear was examined in next to all recent genera of Gliridae: Graphiurus (3 species), Glirulus, Myoxus, Dryomys (2 sp.), Eliomys, Muscardinus, Myomimus (3 sp.) and Selevinia.
Three modes of the mastoid pneumatization may be distinquished in Gliridae.
So, almost all Gliridae are characterized by the same evolurionary route of middle ear development.

Dormice (Gliridae) are mammals whose exact distribution in Poland is still unknown.
During the study we found three species of Gliridae in the Bialskie Mountains: the fat dormouse (Glis glis), the common dormouse (Muscardinus avellanarius) and the forest dormouse (Dryomys nitedula).
In spite of the fact that the edible dormouse is one of the rarest mammals in the Polish Sudety Mountains we found that the species is much more numerous than the other two dormice in the study area.

In the rodent family Gliridae, dental crown pattern is a key morphological character used in taxonomy and stratigraphy.
One of important sources of this disagreement might be that equivalency of landmarks is not fully compatible to homology of crown elements adopted in glirid phylogenetics.

Vergleichend-ontogenetische Untersuchungen an der Ethmoidal- und der Orbitotemporalregion der Gliridae (Rodentia, Mammalia).
Hier zeigt sich, dass die Gliridae zunächst eine primitive protrogomorphe Organisation der Kaumuskulatur aufweisen, die bei späteren Funden in einer Vergrößerung des Foramen infraorbitale für den M. masseter medialis, und in einer Expansion des M. masseter lateralis resultiert.
Molekulare Analysen bestätigen ebenfalls, dass die Gliridae eine Platz in der Nähe der basalen Aplodontia und Sciuridae einnehmen, und nicht zu den Myomorpha gestellt werden können.

Claudine Montgelard research interests are presently in the field of molecular phylogeny with a special emphasis on rodent evolution and confrontation of molecular systematics with morphological and paleontological data.
Phylogenetic relationships among the Gliridae family (dormice) was first analysed between genera using nuclear introns and mitochondrial genes.
The first molecular results using cytochrome b sequences reveal discrepancies between molecular clades and species identification, thus emphasing the necessity of an overall systematic revision to understand the evolution of this genus and its contibution to African biogeography.

 Sciuromorpha - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Carleton and Musser (2005) redefined rodent suborders on the basis of a host of both morphological and molecular reasons.
It has long been suggested that dormice (Gliridae) are not particularly related to the Myomorpha, and their zygomasseteric structure has been termed "pseudomyomorphy".
The connection between squirrels and dormice has been almost exclusively suggested through genetic studies, and to a lesser degree via the fossil rodent Reithroparamys.

 Family Myoxidae or dormice and hazel mice
Holden's use of the name Myoxidae is followed here, but this family sometimes is called Gliridae or Muscardinidae.
The PTES says what is happening to the dormice is a warning about the fate of the hedgerows themselves, which it describes as "green corridors" between increasingly isolated patches of woodland.

In addition, many small rodents with distinctly different characteristics have also come to be known as mice.
Among them are the short-tailed field mice, or field voles, Microtus; the pocket mice, family Heteromyidae; the jumping mice, family Zapodidae; and the squirrellike dormice and related forms, families Gliridae, Platacanthomyidae, and Seleviniidae.
Many of these animals carry a variety of viral, bacterial, and parasitic disease.

This study deals with the Gliridae from 49 localities ranging from Late Eocene (MP17) up to the Late Oligocene (MP30).
The sizes and dental pattern diversity, as well that of infra-orbitary structures as early as the Late Eocene indicate that the first glirid radiation occured before that period.
The «myomorphy» of the Gliridae is derived from a protrogomorph infra-orbital organization: for that reason and on account of their other particular features, the question of the systematical position of the African graphiurids within the Gliridae is formulated.
