Abstract

Taxonomy of the house mouse, Mus musculus is currently being extensively discussed. Feral and commensal forms of Mus musculus provide an important pool of genes (Morse 1978). In order to unify the taxonomy of the species, it is necessary to accumulate and integrate many lines of experimental evidence. The information on Asiatic mice is still incomplete.
