Spatio-temporal patterns of genetic variation in Arbacia lixula, a thermophilous sea urchin in expansion in the Mediterranean
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Preprint; Manuskript, 2018-06-14)
The genetic structure of 13 populations of the amphiatlantic sea urchin <i>Arbacia lixula</i>, as well as temporal genetic changes in three of these localities, were assessed using ten hypervariable microsatellite loci. This thermophilous sea urchin is an important engineer species triggering the formation of barren grounds through its grazing activity. Its abundance seems to be increasing in most ...
