Abstract

Comparison of 321 bp long mtDNA cytochrome b sequences of wild and captive Malayan tapir (Tapirus indicus)revealed low variation among the individuals investigated. Phylogenetic analyses using distance (neighbor-joining) analysis supported the monophyletic status of the Malayan tapir. Two haplotypes were identified out of 13 Malayan tapir analyzed.
