Reference Tan S, Zou D, Tang L, Wang G, Peng Q, Zeng B, Zhang C, Zou F. Molecular evidence for the subspecific differentiation of blue sheep (Pseudois nayaur) and polyphyletic origin of dwarf blue sheep (Pseudois schaeferi). Genetica. 2012 Jul 21 p.7/9 table 2PubMed ID22821360
Method Divergence time of the major clades was estimated based on evolutionary rates between 3.8 and 5.4 % per million years at the third codon position of Cyt b, depending on the interpretation of the fossil record in sheep (Ovis aries) and goats (Capra hircus), which are closely related to blue sheep (Pseudois nayaur) in Caprini, Bovidae (Luikart et al. 2001).
