Marine organisms exhibit great variation in reproductive modes, larval types, and other life-history traits that may have major evolutionary consequences. We measured local and regional patterns of genetic variation in corals along Australia's Great Barrier Reef to determine the relative contributions of sexual and asexual reproduction to recruitment and to infer levels of gene flow both locally (among adjacent sites, < 5 km apart) and regionally (among reefs separated by 500-1,200 km). We… CONTINUE READING
