Aim Genetic data were used to measure the phylogeographic distribution of the limpet, Cellana toreuma along the China coast in order to acsertain impacts of historic events, ocean currents and especially freshwater discharge from the Yangtze River on the connectivity of intertidal species with limited larval dispersal capability. Methodology/Principal Findings Genetic variation in 15 populations of C. toreuma (n = 418), ranging from the Yellow Sea (YS), East China Sea (ECS) and South China Sea…

The impact of Yangtze River discharge on the genetic structure of a population of the rock bream, Oplegnathus fasciatus
TLDR
The AMOVA and STRUCTURE analyses suggested that O. fasciatus may be composed of two stocks in the examined range, and the freshwater discharge from the Yangtze River might act as a physical barrier to genetic exchange between north and south China stocks of the species.
Population subdivision of the surf clam Mactra chinensis in the East China Sea: Changjiang River outflow is not the sole driver
TLDR
It is demonstrated that genetic subdivision can arise for populations within the ECS despite they have a single origin, and multiple mechanisms including Changjiang River outflow, environmental gradient factors and life-history traits may act in combination in the process.
Phylogeography of Bivalve Cyclina sinensis: Testing the Historical Glaciations and Changjiang River Outflow Hypotheses in Northwestern Pacific
TLDR
The historical glaciations hypothesis for interpreting present-day phylogeographical patterns of C. sinensis populations is supported, and the importance of historical glaciation for generating genetic structure of marine coastal species especially those with low-dispersal abilities in northwestern Pacific is highlighted.
Historical isolation and contemporary gene flow drive population diversity of the brown alga Sargassum thunbergii along the coast of China
TLDR
The results suggest that the deep genetic divergence in S. thunbergii along the China coast may result from long-term geographic isolation during glacial periods, which may facilitate the admixture between southern and northern regimes.
Causations of phylogeographic barrier of some rocky shore species along the Chinese coastline
TLDR
It is concluded that there is a phylogeographical break at the Yangtze River estuary for the rocky shore species and the causation of the barrier is mainly due to the unsuitable substratum and freshwater discharge.
The Possible Physical Barrier and Coastal Dispersal Strategy for Japanese Grenadier Anchovy, Coilia nasus in the East China Sea and Yellow Sea: Evidence from AFLP Markers
TLDR
Isolation by distance analysis revealed that direct ocean distance with deep-water at the continental slope and high salinity between west and east coastal waters of the East China Sea served as major physical barrier to C. nasus, supporting the coastal dispersal pattern in this estuarine species, and rejecting offshore dispersal strategy.
Phylogeography of the Rock Shell Thais clavigera (Mollusca): Evidence for Long-Distance Dispersal in the Northwestern Pacific
TLDR
The lack of genetic structure among the great majority of the NW Pacific T. clavigera populations may be attributable to high gene flow by current-driven long-distance dispersal of prolonged planktonic larval phase of this species.
Correction: Phylogeography of the Rock Shell Thais clavigera (Mollusca): Evidence for Long-Distance Dispersal in the Northwestern Pacific
TLDR
The lack of genetic structure among the great majority of the NW Pacific T. clavigera populations may be attributable to high gene flow by current-driven long-distance dispersal of prolonged planktonic larval phase of this species.
Genetic variation and population structure of the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas in the northwestern Pacific inferred from mitochondrial COI sequences
TLDR
The results obtained in this study provide useful information on the genetic diversity and phylogeographic pattern of C. gigas and reveal the complex interactions of multiple factors (strong genetic connectivity by dispersal of larvae and ocean currents in this region) in the northwestern Pacific.

Genetic diversity and historical demography of Chinese shrimp Feneropenaeus chinensis in Yellow Sea and Bohai Sea based on mitochondrial DNA analysis
TLDR
Results indicated that F. chinensis in the Yellow Sea and Bohai Sea might have undergone a genetic bottleneck or founder event during the late Pleistocene globle glacial period.
Phylogeographic heterogeneity of the brown macroalga Sargassum horneri (Fucaceae) in the northwestern Pacific in relation to late Pleistocene glaciation and tectonic configurations
TLDR
Analysis of molecular variance and the population‐pair statistic FST revealed significant genetic structural differences between Chinese marginal seas and the Japanese basin, congruent with the estimates of clade divergence and demographic expansion during the late Quaternary low sea levels.
Effects of Pleistocene glaciations and rivers on the population structure of Bornean orangutans (Pongo pygmaeus)
TLDR
Phylogenetic reconstructions based on mtDNA sequences indicate an unexpectedly recent common ancestor of Bornean orangutans 176 ka (95% highest posterior density, 72–322 ka), pointing to a Pleistocene refugium.
The Bassian Isthmus and the major ocean currents of southeast Australia influence the phylogeography and population structure of a southern Australian intertidal barnacle Catomerus polymerus (Darwin)
TLDR
It is suggested that the east–west division is indicative of allopatric divergence resulting from the emergence of the Bassian land‐bridge during glacial maxima, preventing gene flow between these two lineages.
Contrasting phylogeography in three endemic Hawaiian limpets (Cellana spp.) with similar life histories
TLDR
Despite similar life histories, these closely related limpets with planktonic larvae that are competent to settle within 4 days have contrasting patterns of population structure, illustrating the danger of relying on model species in management initiatives to predict population structure and dispersal in the context of marine protected area delineation.
Colonisation and connectivity by intertidal limpets among New Zealand, Chatham and Sub-Antarctic Islands. II. Oceanographic connections
TLDR
Satellite-derived measurements of ocean currents made since 1993 were used to examine whether present-day oceanic circulation can explain 2 observed genetic lineages of the intertidal limpet Cellana strigilis in the New Zealand region and it is suggested that rare long-distance dispersal events in the ocean influence the gene flow.
Does life history predict past and current connectivity for rocky intertidal invertebrates across a marine biogeographic barrier?
TLDR
It is found that the ability to utilize sheltered habitat provides a clearer explanation of the phylogeographic break, and the species that displayed little or no evidence of a phyloGeographic break across the barrier each displayed unexpectedly relaxed habitat specificity.
Colonisation and connectivity by intertidal limpets among New Zealand, Chatham and Sub-Antarctic Islands. I. Genetic connections
TLDR
The genetic homogeneity observed among populations of the 2 lineages, in conjunction with larval modelling, suggests that these populations are presently isolated but may have been colonised through long-dis- tance dispersal from the southern island populations within the last 100 000 yr.
Population differentiation in the barnacle Chthamalus malayensis: postglacial colonization and recent connectivity across the Pacific and Indian Oceans
TLDR
Analysis of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) sequences of samples from Chthamalus malayensis revealed 3 genetically differentiated clades: the South China Sea, Indo-Malay and Taiwan clades, suggesting that the 3 clades probably represent distinct species.
Comparative phylogeography of coastal limpets across a marine disjunction in New Zealand
TLDR
Divergence time calculations suggest contemporary North and South Island lineages diverged from their respective most recent common ancestor approximately 200 000 to 300 000 years before present, significantly earlier than previous estimates in other coastal marine taxa that arose from a miscalculation of divergence time.
