Two samples of Aphanius fasciatus collected in the Pilo pond (northern Sardinia, Italy) and in an adjacent pool of small surface area were analysed morphologically (235 individuals) and genetically (a subsample of 58 individuals). The aims of the present study were (i) to test the hypothesis that different predation pressures may be associated with morphological and/or genetic differences between samples from each habitat and (ii) to assess the level of divergence between the two populations… CONTINUE READING
