The phylogeography of palm cockatoos, Probosciger aterrimus, in the dynamic Australo-Papuan region

Murphy, Stephen; Double, Michael; Legge, Sarah


Aims: We aimed to investigate the effects of historical land-sea boundary and vegetation dynamics in the Australo-Papuan region on the genetic structure of palm cockatoo populations. In doing so, we also sought to clarify the intraspecific taxonomic status of palm cockatoos, and to examine the potential conservation implications of our results. Location: New Guinea and northern Australia. Methods: We examined mtDNA (domain III, control region) genetic structure in 71 palm cockatoos from 17...[Show more]
