Researchers at the University of London have analyzed and taken DNA samples from mammoth remains found in Siberia.

It was intended to compare the results with those of analysis of current elephants and form a tree of evolution of these species. Scientists conclude that these 14,000 year prints are more related to the current African elephant than to the Asian elephant. However, previous studies showed a greater genetic link with Asian. However, according to London scientists, these analyses were based on non-representative characteristics for the whole family. A theory cannot yet be rejected because there is not enough data. But they claim that the difference between the two species today is greater than that between mammoths and elephants.
