Genetic evidence for different scales of connectivity in a marine mollusc

Piggott, Maxine; Banks, Samuel; Tung, Peter; Beheregaray, Luciano B


Recent studies of connectivity in marine populations have suggested that larval retention and local recruitment are more common than previously considered. Here we used genetic data to investigate the scale of connectivity and patterns of recruitment in the abalone Haliotis coccoradiata, a broadcast spawner with a short larval stage. Although we detected weak but significant genetic differentiation (FST) between populations over a scale of approximately 1000 km, the pattern did not fit an...[Show more]
