Mitochondrial Phylogeny of Namib Day Geckos (Rhoptropus) Based on Cytochrome b and 16S rRNA Sequences


We examined phylogenetic relationships among the Namib day geckos (genus Rhoptropus) using DNA sequence data from the mitochondrial cytochrome b (cytb) and 16S ribosomal RNA genes. Maximum-parsimony analysis of the cytb, 16S, and combined (cytb/16S) datasets each recovered an identical single most-parsimonious tree, revealing two well-supported clades: (1… (More)
