Novel relationships among hyloid frogs inferred from 12S and 16S mitochondrial DNA sequences.


Advanced frogs (Neobatrachia) are usually divided into two taxa, Ranoidea (the firmisternal frogs) and Hyloidea (all other neobatrachians). We investigated phylogenetic relationships among several groups of Hyloidea using 12S and 16S rRNA mitochondrial gene sequences and tested explicit relationships of certain problematic hyloid taxa using a sample of 93… (More)
