Abstract

Partial sequences of mitochondrial ND2 (NADH dehydrogenase subunit 2), 12S rRNA and 16S rRNA genes were obtained from four Australian abalone species and two New Zealand abalone species. Phylogenetic analyses were conducted using the parsimony method. The resulting phylogenetic trees revealed two clades, one consisting of four Australian abalone species and the other containing two New Zealand abalone species. The possible application of ND2, 12S and 16S sequence for the inves-tigation of abalone poaching is discussed.
