    • Evidence of an Australasian divide : exploring little penguins using DNA barcodes 

      Waugh, John (2016-12)
      The use of DNA barcodes (haplotypic variation in a 648 bp segment of the cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene within the mitochondrial genome, starting from base 58 at the 5’ end of the gene) as part of a species ...
