The rate of gene flow between populations depends both on the dispersal ability of the organism and on the probability that migrants can successfully mate with residents. The degree to which this reproductive isolation can impede genetic exchange can be assessed by studying both migration and gene flow. We carried out such a study in Panamanian populations of Excirolana, an intertidal isopod with no planktonic larvae that inhabits both coasts of Central and South America. In Panama Excirolana… CONTINUE READING
