Introgression patterns in the mosaic hybrid zone between Mytilus edulis and M. galloprovincialis
Hybrid zones are fascinating systems to investigate the structure of genetic barriers. Marine hybrid zones deserve more investigation because of the generally high dispersion potential of planktonicExpand
The zone of sympatry and hybridization of Mytilus edulis and M. galloprovincialis, as described by intron length polymorphism at locus mac-1
Intron-size variation at the actin gene locus mac-1 was used to characterize mussel, Mytilus spp., populations in the ∼2000-km wide zone of contact and hybridization (‘hybrid zone’) between M. edulisExpand
Genetic relationships of Mytilus galloprovincialis Lamarck populations worldwide: evidence from nuclear-DNA markers
Abstract Allozyme surveys of genetic variation in Mytilus galloprovincialis Lamarck throughout the world have identified three groups within this species: a northeastern (NE) Atlantic group that alsoExpand
Direct selection on allozymes is not required to explain heterogeneity among marker loci across a Mytilus hybrid zone
Unequal differentiation between two types of loci (allozyme and DNA markers) across a Mytilus hybrid zone has recently been claimed as evidence for direct selection on some allozyme loci. We provideExpand
Genetic entities and mating system in hermaphroditic Fucus spiralis and its close dioecious relative F. vesiculosus (Fucaceae, Phaeophyceae)
To date, molecular markers have not settled the question of the specific status of the closely related, but phylogenetically unresolved, brown seaweeds, hermaphroditic Fucus spiralis and dioeciousExpand
Genetic characterisation of Mytilus galloprovincialis Lmk. in North West Africa using nuclear DNA markers
The genetic relationships among Mytilus galloprovincialis populations over their range in the northeastern Atlantic and the western Mediterranean were investigated using polymerase chain reactionExpand
Genomic reticulation indicates mixed ancestry in Southern-Hemisphere Mytilus spp. mussels: MIXED ANCESTRY IN SOUTHERN-HEMISPHERE MYTILUS
Previous surveys of allozyme variation in smooth-shell Mytilus spp. mussels have reported the presence in the Southern Hemisphere of both Mytilus edulis and Mytilus galloprovincialis mussels. In theExpand
All traditional markers, both phenotypic and phylogenetic, have failed to discriminate between the taxa composing the Fucus vesiculosus L., F. spiralis L., and F. ceranoides L. species complex,Expand
Implications of mating system for genetic diversity of sister algal species: Fucus spiralis and Fucus vesiculosus (Heterokontophyta, Phaeophyceae)
The implications of mating system for genetic diversity were assessed in the sister species Fucus spiralis and Fucus vesiculosus using a combination of ten microsatellite markers. Five newExpand
