Seascapes are complex environments, and populations are often isolated by factors other than distance. Here we investigate the role of coastal habitat preference and philopatry in shaping the distribution and population structure of lemon sharks. The genus Negaprion comprises the amphiatlantic lemon shark (N. brevirostris), with a relict population in the eastern Pacific, and its Indo-West Pacific sister species, the sicklefin lemon shark (N. acutidens). Analyzing 138 individuals throughout the… CONTINUE READING
