Postglacial range expansion shaped the spatial genetic structure in a marine habitat-forming species: Implications for conservation plans in the Eastern Adriatic Sea

Postglacial range expansion shaped the spatial genetic structure in a marine habitat-forming species: Implications for conservation plans in the Eastern Adriatic Sea

Understanding how historical and contemporary processes shaped and maintain spatial patterns of genetic diversity is a mayor goal for conservation biologists. This study characterized the pattern of neutral genetic diversity and inferred underlying processes in the habitat-forming octocoral Paramuricea clavata
