Genetic structure, conservation genetics and evidence of speciation by range expansion in shy and white-capped albatrosses

Abbott, Cathryn; Double, Michael

Description

Six variable microsatellite loci were used to examine genetic structuring in the closely related shy albatross (Thalassarche cauta) and white-capped albatross (T. steadi). First, levels of genetic differentiation between the species, and among three populations within each species, were analysed using AMOVA, FST and RST. We found high levels of genetic structuring and detected many unshared alleles between the species, which provide strong evidence against any contemporary gene flow between...[Show more]
