  • Complete sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit II gene were used to construct a phylogeny for 21 of the 25 currently recognized chipmunk species. Phylogenetic analyses indicate that T. striatus (subgenus Tamias, eastern United States) and T. sibiricus (subgenus Eutamias, Asia) are distantly related to the other species (subgenus Neotamias), which constitute a western North American radiation. We discuss and compare our molecular phylogeny to previous taxonomies and present a… CONTINUE READING
