Abstract The earthworm fauna of agricultural soils in southern Australia is dominated by accidentally introduced lumbricids ( Aporrectodea spp.) from Europe. RAPD analyses were used to generate indices of molecular similarity (M) between: (1) individuals within single populations of the parthenogenetic A. trapezoides (M=85.6%) and the closely-related, but bi-parental, A. caliginosa (M=77.1%); (2) separate populations of A. trapezoides (M=64.9–86.8%); and (3) different Aporrectodea spp. (M=46.6… CONTINUE READING
