Here we report the determination of DNA sequences from two mitochondrial ribosomal gene segments (930 base pairs per species) for 16 species of cetaceans, a perissodactyl and a sloth, and construct the first phylogeny for whales and dolphins based on explicit cladistic methods. Our data (and earlier published myoglobin sequences) confirmed that cetaceans are closely related to artiodactyls and that all families and superfamilies of cetaceans are monophyletic. A surprising finding was that one group of toothed whales, the sperm whales, is more closely related to the baleen whales than to other odontocetes. The common ancestor of baleen whales and sperm whales might have lived only 10 15 million years ago. The suggested paraphyly of toothed whales has many implications for classification, phylogeny and our understanding of the evolutionary history of cetaceans.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Nature 361 (1993), pp. 346-348</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:contributor>Milinkovitch, Michel C.</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Ortí, Guillermo</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Meyer, Axel</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Ortí, Guillermo</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Meyer, Axel</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Revised phylogeny of whales suggested by mitochondrial ribosomal DNA sequences</dcterms:title> <dcterms:issued>1993</dcterms:issued> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
