Allozyme and mtDNA variation in populations of the Daphnia pulex complex from both sides of the Rocky Mountains

Abstract

Long-distance dispersal of diapausing eggs by migratory waterfowl is one factor thought to be responsible for the macrogeographical homogeneity of allozyme frequencies in species of the Daphnia pulex complex. If so, populations on either side of the Rocky Mountains are expected to be divergent because few major flyways cross them. To test this prediction… (More)
