Although numerous coastal marine species show intra-specific lineage splitting and population divergence times that date to the period of glacial cycles during the Pleistocene epoch, reported instances of recent speciation in the coastal marine environment are relatively rare. Marine organisms with brood-protection and other reproductive modes with limited dispersal potential have been suggested to experience more frequent speciation and extinction events than related species with higher… CONTINUE READING
