Seascapes are complex environments, and populations are often isolated by factors other than distance. [...] Key Result Analyzing 138 individuals throughout the range of N. brevirostris (N = 80) and N. acutidens (N = 58) at microsatellite loci (nine and six loci, respectively) and the mitochondrial control region, we find evidence of allopatric speciation corresponding to the Tethys Sea closure (10-14 million years ago) and isolation of the eastern Pacific N. brevirostris population via the emergence of the…Expand
Phylogeography, Genetic Diversity, and Management Units of Hawksbill Turtles in the Indo-Pacific.
TLDR
This study analyzed the most geographically comprehensive sample of hawksbill turtles from the Indo-Pacific Ocean, sequencing 766 bp of the mitochondrial control region from 13 locations (plus Aldabra, n = 4) and revealed 52 haplotypes distributed in 5 divergent clades. Expand
Phylogeography of the reef fish Cephalopholis argus (Epinephelidae) indicates Pleistocene isolation across the indo-pacific barrier with contemporary overlap in the coral triangle
TLDR
The Indo-Pacific Barrier, operating during low sea level associated with glaciation, defines the primary phylogeographic pattern in this species, and a pattern of isolation, divergence, and subsequent overlap likely contributes to species richness at the adjacent CT and is consistent with the region of overlap hypothesis. Expand
Phylogeography of the copper shark (Carcharhinus brachyurus) in the southern hemisphere: implications for the conservation of a coastal apex predator
TLDR
It is proposed that this species originated in the Atlantic, experienced vicariant isolation of Pacific and Atlantic lineages by the rise of the Isthmus of Panama and, subsequently, dispersed across the Pacific to colonise Australasia. Expand
Population structure and phylogeography of the short-tailed stingray, Dasyatis brevicaudata (Hutton 1875), in the Southern Hemisphere.
TLDR
Comparisons suggest that these stingrays exhibit similar levels of population differentiation as other coastal elasmobranchs, with high divergence across oceanic basins and lower differentiation along continuous coastal habitats. Expand
Evidence of historical isolation and genetic structuring among broadnose sevengill sharks (Notorynchus cepedianus) from the world’s major oceanic regions
Cosmopolitan marine pelagic species display variable patterns of population connectivity among the world’s major oceans. While this information is crucial for informing management, information isExpand
Phylogeography of Lionfishes (Pterois) Indicate Taxonomic Over Splitting and Hybrid Origin of the Invasive Pterois volitans
TLDR
The lionfish is an iconic marine fish, recently renowned for a disastrous introduction into the West Atlantic, and the hybrid origin of the Atlantic invasion invokes the possibility of heterosis as a contributing factor to invasion success. Expand
Population structure and cryptic speciation in bonnethead sharks Sphyrna tiburo in the south-eastern U.S.A. and Caribbean.
TLDR
Findings suggest that S. tiburo comprises a species complex and supports previous research indicating fine population structure, which has implications for fisheries management and biodiversity conservation. Expand
Global phylogeography of the dusky shark Carcharhinus obscurus: implications for fisheries management and monitoring the shark fin trade
TLDR
MSA simulations show that reconstruction of the relative contributions of USATL, SAF, and AUS management units to the Asian fin trade is possible using these mtCR sequences, and suggest avenues for obtaining samples to conduct MSA of the shark fin trade, which could enhance manage- ment of dusky sharks and other species that are exploited for their fins.

Genetic evaluation of marine biogeographical barriers: perspectives from two widespread Indo-Pacific snappers (Lutjanus kasmira and Lutjanus fulvus)
TLDR
The IPB does not act as a biogeographical barrier to L. kasmira, and, in L. fulvus, its effects are no stronger than isolating mechanisms elsewhere, further demonstrating a strong barrier at the latter location. Expand
Phylogeography of eagle rays of the genus Aetobatus: Aetobatus narinari is restricted to the continental western Atlantic Ocean
The biogeography and conservation of elasmobranch species was increasingly addressed in the recent past, but the southwestern Atlantic Ocean fauna is still one of the least studied. ReliableExpand

Global phylogeography of the scalloped hammerhead shark (Sphyrna lewini)
TLDR
It is concluded that nursery populations linked by continuous coastline have high connectivity, but that oceanic dispersal by females is rare, and oceanic barriers appear to have a much stronger influence on the genetic architecture of this species and may indicate a mechanism for recent evolutionary radiations in the genus Sphyrna. Expand
Population genetic structure of the lemon shark (Negaprion brevirostris) in the western Atlantic: DNA microsatellite variation
TLDR
DNA microsatellite markers were used to characterize the population genetic structure of the lemon shark, Negaprion brevirostris, in the western Atlantic, and most alleles were found at all four sites, indicating that gene flow occurs throughout the westernAtlantic with no evidence for distinct stocks. Expand
Worldwide phylogeography of the blacktip shark (Carcharhinus limbatus) inferred from mitochondrial DNA reveals isolation of western Atlantic populations coupled with recent Pacific dispersal
TLDR
The findings indicate that a major population subdivision exists across the Atlantic Ocean, but not the Pacific Ocean, and that the historical dispersal of this widespread, coastal species may have been interrupted by the rise of the Isthmus of Panama. Expand
RECONSTRUCTION OF PARENTAL MICROSATELLITE GENOTYPES REVEALS FEMALE POLYANDRY AND PHILOPATRY IN THE LEMON SHARK, NEGAPRION BREVIROSTRIS
TLDR
High levels of polyandry raise the possibility that poly andry evolved in viviparous sharks to reduce genetic incompatibilities between mother and embryos. Expand
Low worldwide genetic diversity in the basking shark (Cetorhinus maximus)
TLDR
Evidence for a bottleneck event within the Holocene is provided, an effective population size that is low for a globally distributed species is estimated, and the implications are discussed. Expand
Extensive paraphylies within sharks of the order Carcharhiniformes inferred from nuclear and mitochondrial genes.
TLDR
A new classification for the Carcharhiniformes is proposed, with the redefinition of the family Scyliorhinidae sensu stricto and the resurrection of thefamily Pentanchidae with a new definition. Expand
Microsatellite analysis of population structure in the shortfin mako (Isurus oxyrinchus)
TLDR
Integrating the results from microsatellite- and mitochondrial-based studies may provide evidence for gender-biased dispersal for the shortfin mako. Expand
Life-history and ecology of sharks at Aldabra Atoll, Indian Ocean
  • J. Stevens
  • Biology
  • Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series B. Biological Sciences
  • 1984
TLDR
Ten species of shark belonging to three families were recorded from Aldabra Atoll and stomach contents of the more abundant species indicate that fish are the most important item in the diet, except for Nebrius concolor which feeds principally on octopus. Expand
Multiple Paternity of a Lemon Shark Litter (Chondrichthyes: Carcharhinidae)
TLDR
Findings demonstrate that this female exhibited philopatry to a nursery ground in Bimini, Bahamas, where she returned to give birth in both 1996 and 1998, and provided the first demonstration of polygamous mating and multiple paternity in a carcharhinid shark. Expand
