Despite much effort towards resolving the molecular phylogenetic tree for pitvipers, some aspects remain unresolved. In particular, the sister group of the diverse New World radiation has remained impossible to identify with any certainty. In this study, which for the first time includes nuclear intron data from all major groups of Asian pitvipers as well… CONTINUE READING
