Mitochondrial DNA Phylogeography and Comparative Cytogenetics of the Springhare, Pedetes capensis (Mammalia: Rodentia)

  title={Mitochondrial DNA Phylogeography and Comparative Cytogenetics of the Springhare, Pedetes capensis (Mammalia: Rodentia)},
  author={Conrad A Matthee and Terence J. Robinson},
  journal={Journal of Mammalian Evolution},
Variation in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) was used together with comparative cytogenetics to examine the evolutionary history and taxonomic status of an African hystricomorphous rodent, the springhare Pedetes capensis. The mtDNA phylogeographic structure showed that the majority of the southern African populations (P. c. capensis) are characterized by unique but closely related maternal lineages. Based on restriction endonuclease fragment analysis, the east African populations (P. c. surdaster… CONTINUE READING
