Research Priorities for Conservation of Metallophyte Biodiversity and their Potential for Restoration and Site Remediation
Plants that have evolved to survive on metal-rich soils-metallophytes-have key values that must drive research of their unique properties and ultimately their conservation. The ability ofExpand

Effects of recruitment on genetic patchiness in the urchinEchinometra mathaei in Western Australia
Enzyme polymorphisms in the sea urchinEchinometra mathaei were examined to test the relative influences of population turnover and patchiness in recruitment on genetic heterogeneity. We found thatExpand

Polymorphism for direction of coil in Partula suturalis: Behavioural isolation and positive frequency dependent selection
SummaryPartula suturalis is unusual among snails in being polymorphic for direction of shell coiling. Polymorphic populations of P. suturalis occur in narrow clines between areas of monomorphicExpand

Cryptic speciation in two widespread subterranean amphipod genera reflects historical drainage patterns in an ancient landscape
The landscape of the Pilbara region of Western Australia has been relatively unchanged for 100 million years. The ancient river systems of this region might be expected to be sources of isolation andExpand

Chaotic genetic patchiness in an intertidal limpet, Siphonaria sp.
Variation of 4 polymorphic enzymes was studied for 2 yr (1978 and 1979) in an undescribed species of Siphonaria, a pulmonate limpet, from a rocky shore at Rottnest Island, Western Australia.Expand

Protecting the innocent: studying short-range endemic taxa enhances conservation outcomes
A major challenge confronting many contemporary systematists is how to integrate standard taxonomic research with conservation outcomes. With a biodiversity crisis looming and ongoing impediments toExpand

Asexual viviparity and population genetics of Actinia tenebrosa
The intertidal anemone Actinia tenebrosa is viviparous. An electrophoretic study of 3 polymorphic enzymes in Western Australian populations has confirmed genetic identity of adults and their broodExpand

Biochemical Systematics of the Atherinid Genus Menidia
Species of the atherinid genus Menidia were compared electrophoretically for enzymes representing an apparent 24 gene loci and for nonenzymatic skeletal muscle proteins. Average allelic frequencyExpand
