Molecular evidence supports coastal dispersal among estuaries for two benthic marine worm (Nephtyidae) species in southeastern Australia

Smith, Laura; Hutchings, Pat; Fraser, Ceridwen


Understanding patterns of dispersal of marine organisms among estuaries is important for the conservation of biodiversity and the design of marine park networks. Whereas numerous studies have recently assessed dispersal potential among key marine vertebrates and habitat-forming macroalgae, relatively few have assessed the potential for dispersal in ecologically important benthic polychaete worms. Here, we used phylogeographic analyses to test for evidence of genetic disjunctions among...[Show more]
