Sequences for the Brown Frog dataset


Dataset of all known taxa of the "western" and "eastern" lineage of the Near Eastern brown frogs (Rana macrocnemis macrocnemis, R. m. camerani, R. holtzi, R. m. pseudodalmatina, R. m. tavasensis, Amphibia, Ranidae, R. m. tavasensis, Amphibia, Ranidae) for the exploration of deeper phylogeographic patterns. Contains the 16S ribosomal mtDNA sequences (n=19) listed in the Appendix II of Veith et al (2003). It is called using data(CladeBrownFrogsRawSeqs).




In total 40 sampling locations throughout the Near Eastern (Turkey, Georgia, Daghestan, Northern Iran) with 21 (19 + 2) haplotypes of length 536.
