It is now online our new article on the genetic diversity and demographic history of the mouse lemur Microcebus tavaratra. In this work we have assessed the level of genetic diversity of this threatened lemur and compared it with other species of the same genus. In addition, we have quantified its level of genetic structure in relation to open habitat, rivers and recent fragmentation. Lastly, we show that some landscape features may play a role in some species but not in others, even though the species are associated with the same habitat. This suggests that if we want to understand the history of species, and thus the history of habitat changes in a region, studies incorporating co-distributed species maybe particularly important.
