Restricted dispersal of the reef fish Myripristis berndti at the scale of the SW Indian Ocean
The reef fish Myripristis berndti (Jordan & Everman 1903) is a pantropical species. A genetic analysis was conducted on 353 individuals from 10 localities distributed across the SW Indian OceanExpand

Incomplete cryptic speciation between intertidal and subtidal morphs of Acrocnida brachiata (Echinodermata: Ophiuroidea) in the Northeast Atlantic
The brittle‐star Acrocnida brachiata (Montagu) lives in sandy‐bottom habitat of both intertidal and subtidal zones along the coasts of the northwestern Europe. An allozyme frequency‐based surveyExpand

Genetic structure of the reef grouper Epinephelus merra in the West Indian Ocean appears congruent with biogeographic and oceanographic boundaries
The reef fauna connectivity of the West Indian Ocean (WIO) is one of the least studied globally. Here we use genetic analyses of the grouper Epinephelus merra (Bloch 1793) to determine patterns ofExpand

Large-scale genetic patchiness among NE Atlantic populations of the brittle star Ophiothrix fragilis
The brittle star Ophiothrix fragilis (Abilgaard, 1789) constitutes a heterogeneous mor- phological group that can be subdivided into 4 varieties. The species is also characterized by high demographicExpand

Comparative phylogeography of the western Indian Ocean reef fauna
Assessing patterns of connectivity at the community and population levels is relevant to marine resource management and conservation. The present study reviews this issue with a focus on the westernExpand

Genetic connectivity of the reef fish Lutjanus kasmira at the scale of the western Indian Ocean
Examining the genetic structure of species allows an estimate of the level of evolutionary connectivity between localities; this information is important for marine biodiversity protection, inExpand

Population structure enhances perspectives on regional management of the western Indian Ocean green turtle
To refine our understanding of the spatial structure of the green turtle (Chelonia mydas) populations in the South West Indian Ocean (SWIO), we analysed patterns of mitochondrial DNA (396 base pairsExpand

Multi-Genetic Marker Approach and Spatio-Temporal Analysis Suggest There Is a Single Panmictic Population of Swordfish Xiphias gladius in the Indian Ocean
Genetic population structure of swordfish Xiphias gladius was examined based on 2231 individual samples, collected mainly between 2009 and 2010, among three major sampling areas within the IndianExpand

Morphological diagnosis of the two genetic lineages of Acrocnida brachiata (Echinodermata: Ophiuroidea), with description of a new species
The burrowing brittle-star Acrocnida brachiata has so far been regarded as a single, easily identifiable species. Recent studies showed habitat-related differences in maximum size, life span,Expand

Isolation and characterization of thirteen polymorphic microsatellite markers from the bluestriped snappers Lutjanus kasmira and L. Bengalensis
Thirteen polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized from the reef fish L. kasmira. Polymorphism was studied in two populations from the South-West Indian Ocean, Seychelles andExpand
