Using neutral, selected, and hitchhiker loci to assess connectivity of marine populations in the genomic era
Estimating the rate of exchange of individuals among populations is a central concern to evolutionary ecology and its applications to conservation and management. For instance, the efficiency ofExpand

Fine‐scale genetic structure and inferences on population biology in the threatened Mediterranean red coral, Corallium rubrum
Identifying microevolutionary processes acting in populations of marine species with larval dispersal is a challenging but crucial task because of its conservation implications. In this context,Expand

Genetic survey of shallow populations of the Mediterranean red coral [Corallium rubrum (Linnaeus, 1758)]: new insights into evolutionary processes shaping nuclear diversity and implications for
Combined action from over‐harvesting and recent mass mortality events potentially linked to ongoing climate changes has led to new concerns for the conservation of shallow populations (5–60 m) ofExpand

Species are hypotheses: avoid connectivity assessments based on pillars of sand
Connectivity among populations determines the dynamics and evolution of populations, and its assessment is essential in ecology in general and in conservation biology in particular. The robust basisExpand

From global to local genetic structuring in the red gorgonian Paramuricea clavata: the interplay between oceanographic conditions and limited larval dispersal
Defining the scale of connectivity among marine populations and identifying the barriers to gene flow are tasks of fundamental importance for understanding the genetic structure of populations andExpand

Patterns of lineage diversification in rabbitfishes.
Fishes of the tropical Indo-Pacific family Siganidae comprise 28 species, characterized by their body proportions and their colour patterns. A mitochondrial phylogeny of 20 Siganidae species wasExpand

Comparative mitogenomics, phylogeny and evolutionary history of Leptogorgia (Gorgoniidae).
Molecular analyses of the ecologically important gorgonian octocoral genus Leptogorgia are scant and mostly deal with few species from restricted geographical regions. Here we explore theExpand

Molecular Phylogeny of Mugilidae (Teleostei: Perciformes)
Molecular phylogenetic relationships among five genera and twelve Mugilidae species were investigated us- ing published mitochondrial cytochrome b and 16S rDNA sequences. These analyses suggested theExpand

Role of evolutionary and ecological factors in the reproductive success and the spatial genetic structure of the temperate gorgonian Paramuricea clavata
Dispersal and mating features strongly influence the evolutionary dynamics and the spatial genetic structure (SGS) of marine populations. For the first time in a marine invertebrate, we examinedExpand

AN INTEGRATED APPROACH TO EVALUATE AND MONITOR THE CONSERVATION STATE OF CORALLIGENOUS BOTTOMS: THE INDEX-COR METHOD
Coralligenous outcrops represent a "hotspot" of Mediterranean marine biodiversity. Algae and sessile invertebrate taxa (mainly sponges, cnidarians, bryozoans and tunicates) structure the associatedExpand
