The Baja California region provides a natural setting for studying the early mechanisms of allopatric speciation in marine systems. Disjunct fish populations from several species that occur in the northern Gulf of California and northern Pacific coast of Baja California, but are absent from its southern shores, were previously shown to be genetically isolated, making them excellent candidates for studying allopatry. In addition, one of these species, the sargo Anisotremus davidsonii, has two… 

Baja California disjunctions and phylogeographic patterns in sympatric California blennies

It is hypothesized that adult habitat and historical vicariant events, more so than pelagic larval duration, played major roles in shaping the currently observed distribution and genetic patterns for these species.

Phylogenetic and Morphologic Analyses of a Coastal Fish Reveals a Marine Biogeographic Break of Terrestrial Origin in the Southern Caribbean

Results presented here support the hypothesis that organismal properties as well as extrinsic factors lead to diversification of the Cathorops mapale group along the northern coast of South America.

Population genetics of species on the genera Tursiops and Delphinus within the Gulf of California and along the western coast of Baja California

Evidence of strong genetic differentiation in both bottlenose and common dolphin populations in the absence of physical barriers supports the hypothesis of local habitat dependence and resource specialization at both the population and putative species level.

Post-glacial habitat release and incipient speciation in the genus Delphinus

The data indicate that although there is some level of on-going gene flow, the putative species found in the Eastern North Pacific are reciprocally monophyletic, and the timing of isolation appears to be associated with regional changes in paleoceanographic conditions within the Holocene timeframe.

Colour variation is incongruent with mitochondrial lineages: cryptic speciation and subsequent diversification in a Gulf of California reef fish (Teleostei: Blennioidei)

The level of genetic divergence documented in this lineage is extraordinary for a marine fish with a pelagic larval stage within a semi‐enclosed basin.

Phylogeography of the diamond turbot (Hypsopsetta guttulata) across the Baja California Peninsula

It is argued that adult ecology has a significant effect on migration rates among populations in the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of California, and is likely to be more highly differentiated between the two bodies of water.

Population Connectivity and Phylogeography of a Coastal Fish, Atractoscion aequidens (Sciaenidae), across the Benguela Current Region: Evidence of an Ancient Vicariant Event

It is suggested that the Benguela Current system may constitute an ancient and impermeable barrier to gene flow for warm-temperate fish species.

Different demographic signals support the a priori hypothesis that environmental conditions to the west of the Bass Strait were more severe than to the east during glacial stages and, in particular, the last glacial maximum.

Historical gene flow constraints in a northeastern Atlantic fish: phylogeography of the ballan wrasse Labrus bergylta across its distribution range

The ballan wrasse (Labrus bergylta), the largest labrid fish along Europe's continental margins, is a target for fisheries and aquaculture industry and the existence of a marked population structure can reflect both recolonization from three distinct glacial refugia and current and past oceanographic circulation patterns.

VICARIANCE AND DISPERSAL ACROSS BAJA CALIFORNIA IN DISJUNCT MARINE FISH POPULATIONS

While dispersal potential was a poor predictor of population structure between Gulf of California and Pacific populations, it was found that population genetic subdivision along the Pacific Coast at Punta Eugenia was always positively correlated with differentiation between Pacific and Gulf ofCalifornia populations.

PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF THE SPOTTED SAND BASS, PARALABRAX MACULATOFASCIATUS: DIVERGENCE OF GULF OF CALIFORNIA AND PACIFIC COAST POPULATIONS

There appears to be little gene flow across the waters of the southern Baja Penninsula, producing divergence estimated as 120,000 to 600,000 years between the outer Pacific coastal and the Gulf of California populations.

Cryptic vicariance in the historical assembly of a Baja California peninsular desert biota.

The Peninsular Desert can no longer be considered a subset of the Sonoran Desert-it is a separate regional desert with its own unique evolutionary history, ecological arena, and conservation value.

PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF THE TRUMPETFISHES (AULOSTOMUS): RING SPECIES COMPLEX ON A GLOBAL SCALE

After 3–4 million years and a globe-spanning series of vicariant and dispersal events, trumpetfish lineages have come back into contact in the southwest Atlantic and appear to be merging, a ring species phenomenon that may occur in a broad array of marine organisms, with clear implications for the production and maintenance of biodiversity in marine ecosystems.

Genetic differentiation of disjunct Gulf of California and Pacific outer coast populations of Hypsoblennius jenkinsi

The low D values of the disjunct populations are compatible with the hypothesis that the range of these temperate fish, continuous around Cabo San Lucas during the Pleistocene glacial periods, was disrupted in the Cape region due to post-glacial warming of surface waters.

A robust phylogenetic framework is developed for 31 taxa from a species-rich group of Neotropical reef fishes using 3230 bp from one mitochondrial and two nuclear gene regions to explore the contribution of large- and small-scale geographic isolation, ecological differentiation, and coloration toward the formation and maintenance of species.

Results indicate that Pacific populations of G. mirabilis separated into two distinct clades, possibly reflecting a phylogeographic break found in other fish species along the Baja California coast at Punta Eugenia.

The possible role of the Pacific Ocean–Sea of Cortez disjunction as a contributing factor to cryptic speciation in a reef fish, the opaleye, is examined and moderate levels of D-loop sequence divergence and the absence of fixed allozyme markers challenge this idea.
