Why do I keep finding panmixia? Or, using molecular markers to study the ecology and evolution of Australian freshwater fishes. : School of Animal Biology seminar series. Other events...
Freshwater fishes are typically conceived as existing in genetically structured subpopulations, where gene flow is low and (effective) population sizes are small. This owes to the patchy nature of freshwater habitat, the dendritic structure of rivers, and the presence of in-stream barriers (e.g., waterfalls). However, in many freshwater systems on the Australian continent, the opposite is observed. In this seminar I will discuss my personal experiences exploring the genetic structure of freshwater fish in the arid-zone systems of central and northern Australia, and discuss the implications for conservation and management of freshwater ecosystems. I will finish with a discussion around the project I am currently undertaking at the Western Australian Museum, where we are using sequence data and the taxonomic expertise of the museum to investigate terrestrial and marine biodiversity in the Pilbara.
