High molecular diversity in the rhodopsin gene in closely related goby fishes: A role for visual pigments in adaptive speciation?

Abstract

The spectral tuning mechanism of visual pigments is an excellent model to elucidate the mechanisms of adaptive evolution and the importance of selection as an evolutionary force. Therefore, we use a phylogenetic approach to determine whether there is evidence for differential adaptive molecular evolution on the rhodopsin (RH1) gene among closely related… (More)
