Determining the geographic scale at which to apply ecosystem-based management (EBM) has proven to be an obstacle for many marine conservation programs. Generalizations based on geographic proximity, taxonomy, or life history characteristics provide little predictive power in determining overall patterns of connectivity, and therefore offer little in terms(More)
We combine kinship estimates with traditional F-statistics to explain contemporary drivers of population genetic differentiation despite high gene flow. We investigate range-wide population genetic structure of the California spiny (or red rock) lobster (Panulirus interruptus) and find slight, but significant global population differentiation in mtDNA (ΦST(More)
Regulation of a truncated isoform of AMP-activated protein kinase alpha (AMPK-alpha) in response to hypoxia in the muscle of Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas. Journal of Compartive Physiology B. Transcriptome analysis reveals a rich gene set related to innate immunity in the Eastern Oyster (Crassostrea virginica). Marine Biotechnology. Combined analyses of(More)
1 AbstrAct.—We compared mitochondrial genetic data for two spiny lobsters in Hawaii with different geographic ranges and histories of fishing pressure. Panulirus marginatus (Quoy and Gaimard, 1825) is endemic to Hawaii, and experienced a short, intense fishery in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI) and long-term, less intense exploitation in the Main(More)
