Two African origins of naturalized brown mussel (Perna perna) in Brazil: past and present bioinvasions

Abstract

Shipping has facilitated dispersion of exotic marine species, the genetic diversity of which may allow determination of their geographic origins. The economically important African brown mussel (Perna perna) is widely distributed along the southeastern and southern Brazilian coasts, and for which information on genetic diversity and origins is scarce.
