Association between mitochondrial DNA and morphological evolution in Canada geese


Variation within and between eight subspecies of Canada geese was assessed by restriction fragment analysis of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), electrophoresis of proteins encoded by nuclear DNA, and the morphometric analysis of skeletons. Estimates of mtDNA sequence divergence between Canada goose subspecies ranged from 0.04 to 2.54%. Pairwise comparisons of the… (More)
