Divergence of the Populations of Yellow Wagtail Motacilla flaval Linnaeus, 1758, And Citrine Wagtail Motacilla citreola Pallas, 1776, (Motacillidae, Passeriformes) in Middle Volga Region of Russia

E.A. Artemieva, A.V. Mishchenko, D.K. Makarov


Blood samples of so-called “yellow” wagtails collected in geographical areas of Middle Volga breeding populations of these species were studied. After mtDNA isolation barcoding of studied species of "yellow" wagtails was performed. Site of gene cytochromec-oxidase I was amplified. This gene was used as a genetic marker for the comparison of obtained samples. After sequencing and sequence alignment of gene cytochrome c-oxidase I, based on the comparison of genetic distances between specimens of the studied species using Jalview software, phylogenetic trees of populations of species Motacilla flava L. and Motacilla citreola Pall. were constructed.
