Genetic resolution of composition and phylogenetic placement of the Isabelline Bear

Galbreath, Gary J; Groves, Colin; Waits, Lisette


We sequenced part of the mitochondrial control region of 2 Himalayan Ursus arctos isabellinus individuals and compared it with that of other U. arctos. Results indicate that the valid allopatric subspecies U. a. isabellinus represents an ancient clade and includes the Gobi bear of Mongolia as a relict population.
