SHORT COMMUNICATIONS Long-term Trend toward Increase in the Proportion of Melanics in the Kurgan Population of Northern Mole Voles (Ellobius talpinus L.) against the Background of Climate Change in the Transural Region N. G. Evdokimov, S. V. Sineva, and A. G. Vasil’ev* Institute of Plant and Animal Ecology, Ural Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences, Yekaterinburg, 620144 Russia *e-mail: email@example.com Received September 21, 2016 Keywords: adaptation polymorphism, northern mole vole, climate change, Transural region DOI: 10.1134/S10674136170 40075 Northern mole voles (Ellobius talpinus L.) in the in the Southern Urals, which is also interpreted as a Urals and Transural region forms polymorphic colo- manifestation of adaptive polymorphism. Therefore, it nies comprising animals of different coat color appeared probable that northern mole voles from the morphs: black, brown, and transitional (black-backed same region would also be characterized by adaptive with brown belly and sides), and the ratio of these polymorphism involving changes in the ratio of color morphs may differ between years and localities .
