Toward the resolution of an explosive radiation--a multilocus phylogeny of oceanic dolphins (Delphinidae).

Abstract

Oceanic dolphins (Delphinidae) are the product of a rapid radiation that yielded ∼36 extant species of small to medium-sized cetaceans that first emerged in the Late Miocene. Although they are a charismatic group of organisms that have become poster children for marine conservation, many phylogenetic relationships within Delphinidae remain elusive due to… (More)
