Genetic structure of Melanotaenia australis at local and regional scales in the east Kimberley,Western Australia

Phillips, Ryan; Storey, A.W.; Johnson, M.S.


The Kimberley region of Western Australia possesses a poorly studied freshwater fish fauna with high endemism in an aquatic landscape subject to monsoonal floods and dry season isolation. In the first population genetic study of freshwater fish in this region, the authors tested the effects of geographic barriers on genetic structure at multiple spatial scales in east Kimberley populations of the western rainbowfish, Melanotaenia australis, the most widespread and abundant species in the...[Show more]
