We estimated the phylogenetic relationships of mitochondrial DNA haplotypes within the sinica-group of macaques, which includes Macaca sinica, M. radiate, M. thibetana, M. assamensis, and possibly M. effort was made to detect intraspecific variation by sampling individuals from different parts of the species' range or from different by: The macaques (/ m ə ˈ k ɑː k / or / m ə ˈ k æ k /) constitute a genus (Macaca) of gregarious Old World monkeys of the subfamily 23 species of macaques inhabit ranges throughout Asia, North Africa, and (in one instance) es are principally frugivorous, although their diet also includes seeds, leaves, flowers, and tree species, such as the crab Class: Mammalia.

With regard to earlier unresolved issues on the macaque evolution, the topology of our tree suggests that: 1) genus Macaca contains four monophyletic species groups; 2) within the Asian macaques, the silenus group diverged first, and members of the sinica and fascicularis groups share a common ancestor; 3) Macaca arctoides are classified in the Cited by:   Sympatry in the genusMacaca is restricted to a heartland area in South Asia that is inhabited by eight species. All heartland species apparently are segregated either ecologically or geographically. Available evidence is compatible with the hypothesis that interspecific competition has been a major factor in the evolution of this pattern of ecogeographic by: Disclaimer: ITIS taxonomy is based on the latest scientific consensus available, and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties. However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes. While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species are contained in Biological classification: Species. The genus Macaca is the most widely distributed of nonhuman primates and is found in twenty countries in Southeast Asia and North Africa. Over the comparative short time span of five million years, macaques have evolved diverse forms, from long-tailed arboreal types to robust terrestrial animals, and inhabit a variety of : John E. Fa.
