Extreme genetic differences among populations of Gazella granti, Grant's gazelle, in Kenya

Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) control region sequences from six Kenyan Grant's gazelle (Gazella granti) populations were highly divergent among locations. Neighbouring populations not separated by geographical or vegetational barriers exhibited a nucleotide sequence divergence of about 14 per cent. A similar level of divergence separates Grant's gazelles from a… (More)
