Topic: Muroidea


  
  Muroidea
(2004) and differs from the more commonly used taxonomy of Musser and Carleton (1993) by recognizing more than a single family within Muroidea.
Musser and Carleton (1993) chose to not subdivide the superfamily because of uncertainty about phylogenetic relationships among the many subfamilies.

Phylogenetic relationships among 19 extant species of rodents, with special emphasis on rats, mice, and allied Muroidea, were studied using sequences of the nuclear protein-coding gene LCAT (lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase), an enzyme of cholesterol metabolism.
Strong support was found for the families Sciuridae (squirrel and marmot) and Gliridae (dormice) and for suprafamilial taxa Muroidea and Caviomorpha (guinea pig and allies).
Evidence from LCAT sequences agrees with that from a number of previous molecular and morphological studies, both concerning branching orders inside Muroidea and the bush-like radiation of rodent suprafamilial taxa (caviomorphs, sciurids, glirids, muroids), thus suggesting that this nuclear gene is an appropriate candidate for addressing questions of rodents relationships.

In his influential classification, Simpson (1945) grouped the Muroidea into four families; the two fossorial groups Spalacidae and Rhizomyidae (which he did not think were closely related) included relatively few species, and the bulk of the diversity was split between the Cricetidae and the Muridae.
The sister group to the Muroidea appears to be the Dipodoidea (the largely bipedal or saltatorial jumping mice and jerboas), forming the Myodonta.
The basal radiation of the Muroidea s.S. ("B") occurred between 24.5 and 25.9 Mya (22.1 to 27.4, the 95% confidence limits around the greater and lesser estimates for the node in question).
