Microsatellite flanking region similarities among different loci within insect species
Although microsatellites are ubiquitous in eukaryota, the number of available markers varies strongly among taxa. This meta‐analysis was conducted on 32 insect species. Sequences were obtained fromExpand

REDUCTIONS IN THE MITOCHONDRIAL DNA DIVERSITY OF CORAL REEF FISH PROVIDE EVIDENCE OF POPULATION BOTTLENECKS RESULTING FROM HOLOCENE SEA‐LEVEL CHANGE
Abstract.— This study investigated the influence of reproductive strategy (benthic or pelagic eggs) and habitat preferences (lagoon or outer slope) on both diversity and genetic differentiation usingExpand

Genetic structuring of the temperate gorgonian coral (Corallium rubrum) across the western Mediterranean Sea revealed by microsatellites and nuclear sequences
In the past decades, anthropogenic disturbance has increased in marine costal habitats, leading to dramatic shifts in population size structure of various marine species. In the temperate region, theExpand

Fine-scale genetic structuring in Corallium rubrum: evidence of inbreeding and limited effective larval dispersal
The red coral Corallium rubrum has a long history of intensive exploitation. As a conse- quence, most populations have been overharvested, which may be leading to reduced levels of genetic diversity.Expand

Seventeen new exon‐primed intron‐crossing polymerase chain reaction amplifiable introns in fish
We used exon-primed, intron-crossing polymerase chain reaction (EPIC-PCR) amplification to assay variation in nuclear loci in some teleost fishes (Carangidae, Centropomidae, Chaetodontidae,Expand

Genetic relatedness in groups of the humbug damselfish Dascyllus aruanus: small, similar‐sized individuals may be close kin
Kin selection plays an important role in the evolution of social behaviour in terrestrial systems. The extent to which kin selection influences the evolution of social behaviour in marine systems isExpand

Drivers of density for the exploited giant clam Tridacna maxima: a meta‐analysis
Giant clam populations have been over-exploited throughout their range over the past decades for their meat and shells. Tridacna maxima, commonly known as the ‘small giant clam’, has remainedExpand

Spatial and temporal genetic structure of the planktonic Sagitta setosa (Chaetognatha) in European seas as revealed by mitochondrial and nuclear DNA markers
Little is known about the spatial and temporal scales at which planktonic organisms are genetically structured. A previous study of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in the holoplanktonic chaetognath SagittaExpand
