Genetic variation and population structure in a spiny lobster, Panulirus marginatus, in the Hawaiian Archipelago. Academic Article uri icon


  • The lobster exhibited polymorphisms at 7 loci out of the 46 enzyme-coding loci screened. However, genetic variability in the species was quite low; the average heterozygosity for all loci was 0.021. Statistical tests failed to reveal clear patterns of genetic differentiation within the Archipelago. -from Authors
