Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequence variation was examined in the three species belonging to the newt genus Euproctus: E. asper, E. montanus, and E. platycephalus, and in three other species belonging to the same family: Triturus carnifex, T. vulgaris and Pleurodeles waltl. The Euproctus species inhabit mountain streams in the Pyrenean region, Corsica, and Sardinia, respectively. This vicariant distribution is believed to be a result of the disjunction and rotation of the Sardinia-Corsica… CONTINUE READING
