Several authors, on the ground of morphology and more recently also on mitochondrial DNA analysis, expressed the opinion that these two zebras are conspecific. We contend that deductions based on mitochondrial DNA analysis are not cogent, while morphological data give evidence that Quagga and Burchell’s Zebra… Expand
