Large marine fishes typically have little population genetic structure. The exceptions are associated with sedentary behaviour, disjunct distributions, or reproductive philopatry. Scalloped hammerhead sharks (Sphyrna lewini) incorporate the contrasting traits of oceanic habitat (usually associated with high dispersal) and possible fidelity to nursery grounds (for reproductive females). To evaluate the expectations of these contrasting behaviours, we examined the global genetic structure of S… Expand
Demographic Processes Underlying Subtle Patterns of Population Structure in the Scalloped Hammerhead Shark, Sphyrna lewini
TLDR
The data and analyses suggest that S. lewini was far more abundant throughout the EP in the past than at present, and that all populations have experienced a bottleneck and all current values of θ are at least an order of magnitude smaller than ancestral θ, indicating large decreases in Ne. Expand
Genetic connectivity of the scalloped hammerhead shark Sphyrna lewini across Indonesia and the Western Indian Ocean
TLDR
The establishment of a haplotype network provided evidence of a significantly different population and a limited genetic distribution between the Indonesian and the Western Indian Ocean populations, and showed the presence of a complex population of S. lewini with limited connectivity only in Indonesia separated from theWestern Indian Ocean. Expand
Population genetic structure of Earth's largest fish, the whale shark (Rhincodon typus)
TLDR
The absence of population structure across the Indian and Pacific basins indicates that oceanic expanses and land barriers in Southeast Asia are not impediments to whale shark dispersal and provides a compelling argument for development of broad international approaches for management and conservation of Earth's largest fish. Expand
Global phylogeography and seascape genetics of the lemon sharks (genus Negaprion)
TLDR
The role of coastal habitat preference and philopatry in shaping the distribution and population structure of lemon sharks is investigated and evidence of allopatric speciation corresponding to the Tethys Sea closure and isolation of the eastern Pacific N. brevirostris population is found. 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
Conservation Genetics of the Scalloped Hammerhead Shark in the Pacific Coast of Colombia.
TLDR
High genetic connectivity between Malpelo Island and the Colombian Pacific coast, suggesting that these 2 areas are nurseries for S. lewini, the first evidence of nursery areas identified for the scalloped hammerhead shark anywhere in the world. Expand
Phylogeography and conservation of the bull shark (Carcharhinus leucas) inferred from mitochondrial and microsatellite DNA
TLDR
The results indicate that effective bull shark management strategies will require local, regional, and international attention and cooperation, and are congruent with restricted maternal gene flow between populations caused by female site fidelity to nursery areas. Expand
Deep mitochondrial divergence in Baja California populations of an aquilopelagic elasmobranch: the golden cownose ray.
TLDR
The results indicate that despite high dispersal potential, GC and PCBC golden cownose ray populations are characterized by highly divergent mitochondrial lineages, and suggest a possible cryptic species in the region. Expand
Global Phylogeography with Mixed-Marker Analysis Reveals Male-Mediated Dispersal in the Endangered Scalloped Hammerhead Shark (Sphyrna lewini)
TLDR
This study includes the largest sampling effort and the most molecular loci ever used to survey the complete range of a large oceanic predator, and findings emphasize the importance of incorporating mixed-marker analysis into stock assessments of threatened and endangered shark species. Expand
Genetic structure of leopard shark (Triakis semifasciata) populations in California waters
TLDR
A novel set of highly variable genetic markers for use in shark population studies is identified, and these results may be used to better inform management decisions for leopard sharks in California. Expand

Population structure of the Australian gummy shark (Mustelus antarcticus GÜnther) inferred from allozymes, mitochondrial DNA and vertebrae counts
TLDR
Vertebrae counts from Eden northwards increased, supporting the conclusion of population heterogeneity off eastern Australia, and three of the seven polymorphic allozyme loci and the mtDNA haplotypes showed significant spatial differentiation. Expand
PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF THE TRUMPETFISHES (AULOSTOMUS): RING SPECIES COMPLEX ON A GLOBAL SCALE
TLDR
After 3–4 million years and a globe-spanning series of vicariant and dispersal events, trumpetfish lineages have come back into contact in the southwest Atlantic and appear to be merging, a ring species phenomenon that may occur in a broad array of marine organisms, with clear implications for the production and maintenance of biodiversity in marine ecosystems. Expand
Genetic evidence of cryptic speciation within hammerhead sharks (Genus Sphyrna)
TLDR
Effective management of large coastal shark species should incorporate this important discovery and the inference from sampling that the cryptic scalloped hammerhead is less abundant than S. lewini, making it potentially more susceptible to fishery pressure. Expand
Genetic heterogeneity among blacktip shark, Carcharhinus limbatus, continental nurseries along the U.S. Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico
TLDR
The results support the presence of philopatry for nursery areas among female blacktip sharks and support the treatment of Atlantic and Gulf blacktip shark nursery areas as separate management units. Expand
Evidence for male dispersal along the coasts but no migration in pelagic waters in dusky dolphins (Lagenorhynchus obscurus)
TLDR
The analyses suggest that dusky dolphins from Argentina and southern Africa recently separated from an ancestral Atlantic population and, since then, diverged without considerable gene flow, and only the Peruvian dusky dolphin stock is highly differentiated, suggesting that major fluctuations in its population size have led to an increased rate of genetic drift. Expand
Molecular insights into the population structures of cosmopolitan marine fishes
TLDR
Although general patterns of genetic population structure were similar among continuously and discontinuously distributed cosmopolitan marine species, there were some striking differences, highlighting the need for a thorough understanding of the genetic basis of population structure of each species for proper management. Expand
Shallow population histories in deep evolutionary lineages of marine fishes: insights from sardines and anchovies and lessons for conservation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that regional populations of sardines and anchovies are subject to periodic extinctions and recolonizations, and management strategies should incorporate the idea that even extremely abundant populations may be relatively fragile on ecological and evolutionary time scales. Expand
Conservation implications of complex population structure: lessons from the loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta)
TLDR
Results indicate that loggerhead females home faithfully to their natal nesting colony, but males provide an avenue of gene flow between regional nesting colonies, probably via opportunistic mating in migratory corridors, and demonstrate that surveys of multiple life stages are desirable to resolve management units inigratory marine species. Expand
Population structure and speciation in the genus Tursiops based on microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA analyses
TLDR
Both mtDNA and microsatellite DNA data show significant differentiation, suggesting restricted gene flow for both males and females in bottlenose dolphins, and two coastal populations recently classified as belonging to a new species were each highly differentiated from populations of the truncatus morphotype.

TLDR
Repeated fluctuations in environmental parameters through time, producing fine-scale spatial and temporal non-equilibrium, were probably ultimately responsible for the maintenance of this broad-scale high diversity community. Expand
