Invasions and subsequent range expansions by exotic species provide an excellent opportunity for the study of founder effects on the genetic structure of colonizing populations. Although the Great Lakes have served as the initial point of colonization for more than 100 species, few studies have examined the genetic structure of these invaders. This study shows that levels of genetic variability in North American populations of the cladoceran invader Bosmina coregoni are at least as high as… CONTINUE READING
