The mitochondrial cytochrome b gene is widely used in systematic studies to resolve divergences of many different ages. To investigate phylogenetic relationships among frogs of the large family Bufonidae, and to explore the utility of cytochrome b for this purpose, approximately one-third of the gene was sequenced from representatives of this group. Samples were chosen to represent a range of divergence levels within Bufonidae: (1) deep (= old), among species from around the world; (2) middle… CONTINUE READING
