Presentation Abstract

In this study I phylogenetically examined the mitochondrial locus cytochrome oxidase I (COI) from twenty-six marine turtles using Crocodylus porosus for an outgroup comparison. The main purpose of analyzing this locus is to access the utility of COI as an indicator of biodiversity within the family Cheloniidae (Sea Turtles). These analyses expand the number of taxa analyzed in Naro-Maciel et al. 2009, by including ten additional taxa. These taxa, will help increase phylogenetic resolution and the recognition of biodiversity patterns within sea turtles.
