Limits to gene flow in the slipper limpet Crepidula fornicata as revealed by microsatellite data and a larval dispersal model


Crepidula fornicata, one of the most invasive marine sessile invertebrates in Europe, has traits commonly associated with a weak population genetic structure (high population connectivity): wide environmental tolerance, high fecundity, and a long planktonic larval stage (21 d). In order to determine the scale at which effective dispersal occurs in this… (More)
