The genus Sylvilagus, which comprises the New World cottontail rabbits, contains several commercially important as well as endangered (or threatened) species. Understanding the evolution of this group is pertinent to their management and conservation. The purpose of this study was to examine the evolutionary history of the cottontails using sequence data from the mitochondrial 12S rRNA gene. The 12S data provide a robust phylogeny which was supported under a variety of phylogenetic approaches… Expand
