Contemporary habitat discontinuity and historic glacial ice drive genetic divergence in Chilean kelp

Fraser, Ceridwen I.; Thiel, Martin; Spencer, Hamish G.; Waters, Jonathan M.


BACKGROUND South America's western coastline, extending in a near-straight line across some 35 latitudinal degrees, presents an elegant setting for assessing both contemporary and historic influences on cladogenesis in the marine environment. Southern bull-kelp (Durvillaea antarctica) has a broad distribution along much of the Chilean coast. This species represents an ideal model taxon for studies of coastal marine connectivity and of palaeoclimatic effects, as it grows only on exposed rocky...[Show more]
