Application of a new method to investigate population structure in the harbour porpoise, Phocoena phocoena, with special reference to the North and Baltic Seas

Lockyer, C.
Journal of Cetacean Research and Management (1999)

Tooth ultrastructure in harbour porpoise is examined as a possible tool for differentiating between animals from different geographical regions in the North Atlantic. Nine different characteristics in both dentine and…


A preliminary study on the variability of the mitochondrial DNA control region in populations of finless porpoises (Neophocaena phocaenoides) in Chinese waters

Yang, Guang; Zhou, Kaiya
Biology and Conservation of Freshwater Cetaceans in Asia (2000)

The mitochondrial DNA control region of 12 finless porpoises (Neophocaena phocaenoides) from the Yangtze River, Yellow Sea, and South China Sea, was amplified. Two portions, 317 and 245 base pairs,…


Phylogeography, intraspecific structure and sex-biased dispersal of Dall’s porpoise, Phocoenoides dalli , revealed by mitochondrial and microsatellite DNA analyses

Escorza-Treviño, S.; Dizon, A. E.
Molecular Ecology (2000)

Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) control-region sequences and microsatellite loci length polymorphisms were used to estimate phylogeographical patterns (historical patterns underlying contemporary distribution), intraspecific population structure and gender-biased dispersal of Phocoenoides dalli…
