Abstract

DNA-DNA hybridisations using 'unique' DNA sequences have been done on 11 marsupial species representing seven of the major families. The phylogenetic reconstruction of the branching sequence of the species studied is largely consistent with previous taxonomic predictions. This technique will be important in resolving some of the currently outstanding problems of marsupial taxonomy.
