The genetic variability of southern European populations of the marine amphipod Gam- marus locusta (L.) was analyzed using randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (PCR-RAPD). We ana- lyzed 4 populations along the Portuguese coast with 10 arbitrary primers, which produced a total of 114 interpretable bands. The average percentage of polymorphism was 77% and the within-popula- tion average similarity index was high (0.841). Between-population differentiation was low, as deter- mined by Wright's… CONTINUE READING
