Phylogenetic analysis of the 24 named albatross taxa based on full mitochondrial cytochrome b DNA sequences

Chambers, Geoffrey K.; Moeke, Cassidy; Steel, Ryan; Trueman, John


A stable evidence-based taxonomy is a critical requirement for the effective future conservation of the albatrosses. Recently published partial molecular phylogenies are in broad agreement with respect to the structure of the evolutionary tree for most named taxa, but the analytical methods used to create them have been seriously criticised and they must be considered provisional at best. A further problem is that their authors reach startlingly different conclusions regarding the numbers of...[Show more]
