Mitochondrial gene genealogy and gene flow among island and mainland populations of a sedentary songbird, the grey-crowned babbler (Pomatostomus temporalis
Similarly, mtDNA sequences (Edwards 1993) from a highly variable segment of the control region distinguished geographically close populations of gray crowned babblers (Pomatostomus temporalis
), whereas more conservative segments of the mtDNA genome distinguished only major lineages (Edwards and Wilson 1990).
Grey-crowned Babblers (Pomatostomus temporalis) are highly social songbirds with helpers at the nest ("cooperative breeders") and an extensive range throughout Australia and New Guinea.
Samples arid Genetic Distances between Individuals.--In this study, 120 individuals belonging to 12 populations in the temporalis (n = 46) and rubeculus (n = 74) lineages of Pomatostomus temporalis were used (fig.
