Abstract
<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title> <jats:p>A molecular phylogeny based on 917 base pairs (bp) of the mitochondrial (mt) DNA cytochrome-b gene was used to test and reassess the systematics and conflicting taxonomic treatments of the small, black-and-white Puffinus shearwaters, including the P. assimilis-lherminieri species complex. Three geographically discrete clades were identified in the North Atlantic, Southern (Australasia) and tropical Pacific and Indian oceans that contain most of the P. assimilis-lherminieri taxa. Together with four other lineages (P. puffinus, P. opisthomelas, P. mauretanicus-P. yelkouan, P. newelli-P. myrtae), they form an unresolved pol...
