Eight microsatellite markers were used to screen over 1700 individual pearl oysters Pinctada maxima from 5 Western Australian (Lacepedes, 80 Mile Beach Shallow, 80 Mile Beach Deep, Port Hedland and Exmouth Gulf), 1 northern Australian (Darwin) and 2 Indonesian (Madura and Sumbawa) populations. There was a strong and highly significant relationship between the amount of genetic divergence between pairs of populations and their degree of geographical separation. Within Australia, there was some… CONTINUE READING
