Abstract

<p>Family Camelidae includes Guanaco and Vicuna in South America and two-humped camels (<i>Camelus bactrians</i> and <i>C. ferus</i>) and one-humped camels (<i>C. dromedarius</i>) are distributed from Eurasia to Northern Africa. We reviewed studies on mitochondrial and nuclear DNA of camels. We collected 37 complete mitochondrial DNA sequences of Camelid including those of now extinct <i>Camelops</i> which distributed in North America from DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank International Nucleotide Sequence Database. Neighbor-joining trees were constructed for these sequences, and evolution of family Camelidae and genus <i>Camelus</i> are discussed with special reference to demographic changes of <i>C. bactrians</i> and <i>C. dromedarius</i>.</p>
