Loss of microsatellite diversity and low effective population size in an overexploited population of New Zealand snapper (Pagrus auratus)
Although the effects of overfishing on species diversity and abundance are well documented, threats to the genetic diversity of marine fish populations have so far been largely neglected. Indeed,Expand

Age of cichlids: new dates for ancient lake fish radiations.
Timing divergence events allow us to infer the conditions under which biodiversity has evolved and gain important insights into the mechanisms driving evolution. Cichlid fishes are a model system forExpand

Paradigm shifts in marine fisheries genetics: ugly hypotheses slain by beautiful facts
By providing new approaches to the investigation of demographic and evolutionary dynamics of wild populations, molecular genetics has led to fundamental changes in our understanding of marineExpand

Biogeography of the Indo-Australian Archipelago
The extraordinary species richness and endemism of the Indo-Australian Archipelago (IAA) exists in one of the most geologically dynamic regions of the planet. The provenance of its biota has beenExpand

SPECIATION IN ANCIENT CRYPTIC SPECIES COMPLEXES: EVIDENCE FROM THE MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF BRACHIONUS PLICATILIS (ROTIFERA)
Continental lake-dwelling zooplanktonic organisms have long been considered cosmopolitan species with little geographic variation in spite of the isolation of their habitats. Evidence ofExpand

Environmental DNA for wildlife biology and biodiversity monitoring.
Extraction and identification of DNA from an environmental sample has proven noteworthy recently in detecting and monitoring not only common species, but also those that are endangered, invasive, orExpand

Genomic signatures of local directional selection in a high gene flow marine organism; the Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua)
BackgroundMarine fishes have been shown to display low levels of genetic structuring and associated high levels of gene flow, suggesting shallow evolutionary trajectories and, possibly, limited orExpand

Molecular genetics and the stock concept in fisheries
The concept of a sustainable yield (SY, Gulland, 1983; Lannan et al., 1989) has dominated fisheries management for almost 50 years. The central idea is that each stock has a harvestable surplus, andExpand

Temporal analysis of archived samples indicates marked genetic changes in declining North Sea cod (Gadus morhua)
Despite increasing evidence that current exploitation rates can contribute to shifts in life–history traits and the collapse of marine fish stocks, few empirical studies have investigated the likelyExpand

Power for detecting genetic divergence: differences between statistical methods and marker loci
Information on statistical power is critical when planning investigations and evaluating empirical data, but actual power estimates are rarely presented in population genetic studies. We usedExpand
