Abstract

Once common throughout the entire Sahelo-Saharan region, population sizes of Dorcas gazelles (Gazella dorcas) are nowadays decreasing dramatically. The uncertain taxonomy of this species—with a variety of described subspecies without validated status—hampers conservation efforts. In this situation, phylogenetic and phylogeographic investigations using molecular techniques are highly warranted conservation tools. Here, we investigate sequence variation of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene and control region of 73 dorcas (G. dorcas) and Saudi gazelles (G. saudiya) throughout the entire distribution range.
