New Zealand's (NZ) geographical isolation, extensive coastline and well-characterized oceanography offer a valuable system for marine biogeographical research. Here we use mtDNA control region sequences in the abundant endemic sea-star Patiriella regularis to test the following literature-based predictions: that coastal upwelling disrupts north-south gene flow and promotes population differentiation (hypothesis 1); and that an invasive Tasmanian population of the species was introduced… CONTINUE READING
