Mate recognition in a freshwater fish: geographical distance, genetic differentiation, and variation in female preference for local over foreign males

Wong, Bob; Keogh, J Scott; Jennions, Michael


It often is assumed that more distant allopatry should reflect reduced rates of contemporary gene flow and/or greater divergence in mate recognition systems. This assumption, however, is rarely tested and may not always be appropriate. Here we investigated female preference for local and foreign males in a morphologically variable Australian freshwater fish, the Pacific blue-eye Pseudomugil signifer. Using a multidisciplinary approach that combined molecular phylogeography with conventional...[Show more]
