Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We describe DNA sequences for the mitochondrial control region and phenylalanine-tRNA from the four extant gibbon subgenera. In contrast to earlier studies on gibbon phylogeny that used other parts of the mtDNA, the control region depicts the crested gibbons (Nomascus) as the most basal group of the Hylobatidae, followed by Symphalangus, with Bunopithecus and Hylobates as the last to diverge. Our data show that the molecular distances among the four gibbon subgenera are in the same range as those between Homo and Pan, or even higher. As a consequence of these findings, we propose to raise all four gibbon subgenera to genus rank.
