The antlerogenic process is controlled by a complex interaction of fluctuating levels of several hormones, most importantly testosterone. The(More)
Cervid phylogenetics has been puzzling researchers for over 150 years. In recent decades, molecular systematics has provided new input for both the support and revision of the previous results from comparative anatomy but has led to only partial consensus. Despite all of the efforts to reach taxon-wide species sampling over the last two decades, a number of(More)
