The utility of AFLPs for supporting mitochondrial DNA phylogeographical analyses in the Taiwanese bamboo viper, Trimeresurus stejnegeri


, : The utility of AFLPs for supporting mitochondrial DNA phylogeographical analyses in the Taiwanese bamboo viper, Trimeresurus stejnegeri. Journal of Evolutionary Biology 17(1): 100-107

An amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) assay was performed on individuals representing discrete haplotypes from two genetically distinct mtDNA lineages of the bamboo viper, Trimeresurus stejnegeri (Schmidt), within Taiwan. AFLP (525 polymorphic markers from five primer pairs) and mtDNA genetic distances were highly correlated and an analysis of molecular variance, and a Bayesian approach similarly partitioned estimates of genetic similarity according to the mtDNA phylogeographical pattern. These results are discussed in relation to biogeographical hypotheses, comparative rates of mtDNA molecular evolution, and in the identification of evolutionary significant units of Taiwanese T. stejnegeri. In spite of the high degree of congruence between the genetic datasets, the AFLP phylogenetic analysis did not support the mtDNA tree, suggesting that no contemporary barriers to gene flow exist between individuals from the two mtDNA lineages.
