Worldwide phylogeography of the blacktip shark (Carcharhinus limbatus) inferred from mitochondrial DNA reveals isolation of western Atlantic populations coupled with recent Pacific dispersal
Although many coastal shark species have widespread distributions, the genetic relatedness of worldwide populations has been examined for few species. The blacktip shark, (Carcharhinus limbatus),Expand

Microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA analyses of the genetic structure of blacktip shark (Carcharhinus limbatus) nurseries in the northwestern Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean Sea
We investigated the genetic structure of blacktip shark (Carcharhinus limbatus) continental nurseries in the northwestern Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean Sea using mitochondrial DNAExpand

Contrasting mtDNA diversity and population structure in a direct‐developing marine gastropod and its trematode parasites
The comparative genetic structure of hosts and their parasites has important implications for their coevolution, but has been investigated in relatively few systems. In this study, we analysed theExpand

Genetic heterogeneity among blacktip shark, Carcharhinus limbatus, continental nurseries along the U.S. Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico
Genetic population structure of the blacktip shark, Carcharhinus limbatus, a commercially and recreationally important species in the southeast U.S. shark fishery, was investigated usingExpand

Host specificity under molecular and experimental scrutiny.
Current research on the patterns and processes underpinning host specificity in parasites goes well beyond field observations. Molecular studies are used increasingly on a range of parasite taxa toExpand

Co-occurrences of parasite clones and altered host phenotype in a snail-trematode system.
The frequent co-occurrence of two or more genotypes of the same parasite species in the same individual hosts has often been predicted to select for higher levels of virulence. Thus, if parasites canExpand

The implications of philopatry in sharks for the management of shark fisheries
Evidence of philopatric behavior in diverse species of sharks is accumulating through various sources of data, including studies of shark behavior, genetics and fisheries. If sharks display naturalExpand

Characterization of microsatellite loci isolated from the blacktip shark and their utility in requiem and hammerhead sharks
We isolated and characterized 16 microsatellite loci from the blacktip shark, Carcharhinus limbatus, and tested cross-species amplification in 11 Carcharhinus species and five additional sharkExpand

Trematode parasites of Otago Harbour (New Zealand) soft‐sediment intertidal ecosystems: Life cycles, ecological roles and DNA barcodes
Abstract Parasites, in particular trematodes (Platyhelminthes: Digenea), play major roles in the population dynamics and community structure of invertebrates on soft‐sediment mudflats. Here, weExpand

Genetics, intensity-dependence, and host manipulation in the trematode Curtuteria australis: following the strategies of others?
Manipulation of host phenotype by parasites can require a collective effort from many individuals. The cost of manipulation may only be paid by the individuals actually inducing the manipulation,Expand
