Obtaining blood and muscle samples is often not feasible in genetic studies on endangered species, therefore researchers must adopt sampling techniques that are less invasive, but yield poorer quality DNA (Taberlet et al. 1999). Noninvasive sampling has increased in avian genetics over the last decade (Pearce et al. 1997; Segelbacher and Steinbru¨ck 2001;(More)
The phylogenetic relationships of 21 pheasant and 6 non-pheasant species were determined using nucleotide sequences from the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene. Maximum parsimony and maximum likelihood analysis were used to try to resolve the phylogenetic relationships within Phasianidae. Both the degree of resolution and strength of support are improved over(More)
