Two subspecies of killifish, Fundulus heteroclitus, inhabit the Atlantic coast of the United States. The contact zones between them are typified by morphological, physiological, nuclear gene, and mitochondrial DNA clines. Considerable debate exists about the importance of restricted gene flow and natural selection in maintaining these clines. To evaluate the relative importance of these two evolutionary forces we employed analysis of mtDNA as an independent measure of gene flow. Solutions of… CONTINUE READING
