The genetic structure of Australasian green turtles (Chelonia mydas): exploring the geographical scale of genetic exchange
The emerging general picture is one of dynamic population structure influenced by the capacity of females to relocate among proximal breeding sites, although this may be conditional on large population sizes as existed historically across this region.

A phylogenetic analysis of DNA sequences, and gene rearrangements, supported five independent origins of the crab–like form, and suggests that the evolution of the Crab-like form may be irreversible, and supports the utility of mitochondrial gene rearrangeements in phylogenetic reconstruction.

The results suggest that historical eustatic changes have left a significant imprint on the molecular diversity within marine species as well as among those in the Indo–West Pacifc.
Phylogenetic relationships and evolutionary history of the shrimp genus Penaeus s.l. derived from mitochondrial DNA.
A worldwide perspective on the population structure and genetic diversity of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) in New Zealand.
Analysis of gene flow indicated long-distance dispersal among coastal and pelagic populations worldwide (except for those haplotypes described as inshore ecotype in the Western North Atlantic), suggesting that these populations are interconnected on an evolutionary timescale.
New Zealand triplefin fishes (family Tripterygiidae): contrasting population structure and mtDNA diversity within a marine species flock
Overall, a strong relationship was found between habitat depth and population structure among species, and species inhabiting shallower water habitats showed lower genetic diversity with higher levels of population subdivision, suggesting processes resulting from intraspecific differences in habitat preference, climatic histories and/or larval ecologies have subdivided populations of shallow water triplefin species.
Concordance between dispersal and mitochondrial gene flow: isolation by distance in a tropical teleost, Lates calcarifer (Australian barramundi)
The analysis of mtDNA variation in L. calcarifer confirms that population genetic models can detect population structure of not only evolutionary significance but also of demographic significance, and demonstrates the power of inferring such structure from hypervariable markers, which correspond to small effective population sizes.
Indo‐Pacific population structure and evolutionary history of the coconut crab Birgus latro
The starlike phylogeny of alleles from the Pacific suggests a rapid population expansion in the Pacific during the Pleistocene, and includes information about allele phylogeny, as well as distribution and frequency, obscured contemporary population structure, but provided unique insights into the evolutionary history of the species.
DNA surveillance: web-based molecular identification of whales, dolphins, and porpoises.
DNA Surveillance is a Web-based application that assists in the identification of the species and population of unknown specimens by aligning user-submitted DNA sequences with a validated and curated…
Application of mitochondrial control region in population genetic studies of the shrimp Penaeus
Results indicate that the mitochondrial control region in shrimps provides more informative sites and reveals more haplotypes, making it most useful for evaluating genetic variations within and between populations of Penaeus species.
