Mitochondrial DNA divergence in the critically imperilled pygmy madtom, Noturus stanauli (Siluriformes: Ictaluridae)
Abstract:The mitochondrial cytochrome b gene was sequenced for six individuals of the pygmy madtom, Noturus stanauli, a globally imperilled catfish, from both known localities in Tennessee (U.S.A.) separated by over 1055 river km. Phylogenetic and population genetic analyses revealed little divergence between these populations for this locus.
