For many marine organisms, including large, long-lived predators, the factors affecting connectivity between populations are still largely unknown. We assessed levels of genetic differenti- ation and dispersal patterns of bottlenose dolphins Tursiops sp. across Spencer Gulf and coastal areas west of the gulf in the Great Australian Bight, South Australia (SA), using data from mitochondrial DNA control region sequences and 6 microsatellite loci. Marked genetic differentiation and low migration… CONTINUE READING
