Genetic Differentiation Among Populations of the Salt Marsh Beetle Pogonus littoralis (Coleoptera: Carabidae): A Comparison Between Atlantic and Mediterranean Populations

Show Summary Details

Preview

Genetic differentiation was studied among populations of the salt marsh beetle Pogonus littoralis (Coleoptera: Carabidae), comparing Atlantic and Mediterranean populations over a large part of its range. The genetic structure of this highly mobile beetle was investigated by studying allozyme polymorphism at nine enzyme loci in 13 populations. Mediterranean P. littoralis were highly significantly differentiated from Atlantic populations. Moreover, more isolated Atlantic populations showed increased differentiation and decreased genetic diversity compared to less fragmented Mediterranean populations.
