Allozyme electrophoresis was used to explore relationships among the Australian Chelidae in order to test the currently accepted phylogeny and to determine the affinities of several distinctive but undescribed species. The data set was comprehensive, being based on 54 loci for turtles from 76 populations of 22 species (excluding Pseudemydura umbrina and Chelodina novaeguineae). Analysis by both phenetic and phylogenetic methods revealed that the genus Elseya, as currently recognised, is… Expand
