Genetic and morphological analyses of the southern bull kelp durvillaea antarctica (phaeophyceae: Durvillaeales) in New Zealand reveal cryptic species

Hay, Cameron H.; Spencer, Hamish; Waters, Jonathan; Fraser, Ceridwen


Many macroalgae exhibit considerable intraspecific morphological variation, but whether such variation reflects phenotypic plasticity or underlying genetic differences is often poorly understood. We quantified both morphological and genetic variation of 96 plants from seven field sites across eastern South Island, New Zealand, to assess genetic differences between morphotypes of the southern bull kelp Durvillaea antarctica (Cham.) Har. Consistent DNA sequence differentiation across...[Show more]
