Molecular phylogeny endorses the relationship between carnivorous and filter‐feeding tunicates (Tunicata, Ascidiacea)
TLDR
Molecular phylogeny endorses the relationship between carnivorous and filter‐feeding tunicates (Tunicata, Ascidiacea) and concludes that carnivorous tunicates and filter- feeding tunicates are related. Expand
Population genetic structure of the Antarctic ascidian Aplidium falklandicum from Scotia Arc and South Shetland Islands
TLDR
In this work, ISSRs-PCR markers were used to study the genetic structure of populations of Aplidium falklandicum, a compound ascidian with short-lived lecitotrophic larvae, and a highly significant genetic differentiation and a pattern of isolation by distance were found. Expand
Population genetic structure of the ascidian Styela rustica at Kongsfjorden, Svalbard, Arctic
TLDR
Although the weak genetic structure found among the studied populations could indicate a founder effect, the genetic landscape shape analysis together with a positive relationship between genetic and geographic distances also suggest possible current gene flow among populations in the fjord. Expand
