Replicated shape variation between simple and complex habitats in two estuarine fishes

  title={Replicated shape variation between simple and complex habitats in two estuarine fishes},
  author={Clifton B Ruehl and Virginia R. Shervette and Thomas J Dewitt},
A replicated pattern of habitat-associated morphology among different lineages may represent adaptive convergence. Deviation from the replicated (shared) pattern of diversification reflects unique (e.g. species specific) effects resulting from siteor species-specific selection, intrinsic factors (e.g. G matrix differences) or chance historical events (e.g. genetic drift). For two distantly-related estuarine fishes [Lagodon rhomboides (Sparidae; Linnaeus) and Leiostomus xanthurus (Sciaenidae… CONTINUE READING
