Pinniped phylogenetic relationships inferred using AFLP markers

  title={Pinniped phylogenetic relationships inferred using AFLP markers},
  author={Kanchon K Dasmahapatra and Joseph I. Hoffman and William Amos},
Amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs) are widely used for phylogenetic reconstruction in plants but their use in animal taxa has been limited, and in mammals rare. In addition, their use has been largely limited to shallow relationships amongst species or subspecies. Here, we genotype 23 pinniped species for 310 AFLP markers and find a strong phylogenetic signal, with individuals coclustering within species, and overall a good agreement between our phylogeny and those constructed… CONTINUE READING
