Molecular phylogenetics of howler monkeys (Alouatta, Platyrrhini)

Molecular phylogenetic analyses of seven Brazilian Alouatta species, based on cytochrome b DNA sequence data were carried out. Parsimony and neighbor joining topologies grouped Alouatta belzebul and A. fusca as sister groups in one clade while another, well-supported clade contained A. seniculus as the most basal offshoot, followed by A. nigerrima as a sister lineage of A. macconnelli/A. stramineus. Estimates of inter-specific sequence divergence were generally low, and estimates of the time of… CONTINUE READING
