To address several interconnected goals, we used mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequences to explore evolutionary relationships among four potentially hybridizing taxa in a North American avian superspecies (Dendroica occidentalis, D. townsendi, D. virens, and D. nigrescens). We first compared the results of a previous restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP)-based study with 1453 nucleotides from the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI), ATP-synthase 6 (ATPase 6), and ATP… CONTINUE READING
