Population genetic indices for invasive and native American A. franciscana based on COI loci

Artemia franciscana, native to America, has recently colonized as non-indigenous population in Asia, Europe, North Africa, and Australia. We evaluated the effects of the colonization of A. franciscana on genetic differentiation in new environments in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). We used the COI marker to determine the genetic structure and origi...

Context 1
... localities from the UAE possessed the greatest H1 haplotype frequency: AWWR (88.46%: 46 individuals out of 52) and GL (86.54%: 45 individuals out of 52). The estimated genetic indices for the studied localities are displayed in Table 6. The highest-ranking amounts of Hr (0.206), Pi (0.0038 ± 0.002), and K (2.334 ± 1.013) were documented in GSL, whereas the SFB locality had the highest quantities of Hd (0.480 ± 0.087) and Ext Het (0.277 ± 0.136). ...
Context 2
... invasive populations in Australia presented different levels of genetic variation as compared with American native populations. Our results indicated that the genetic differentiation in both exotic UAE populations was low and that AWWR revealed lower variation than GL (Table 6). ...

... results revealed a negative and significant Tajima's D value (−2.304) only for the exotic population in AWWR (Table 6), which demonstrated an excess of rare haplotypes followed by population expansion or purifying selection (Nei and Kumar, 2000;Swanson et al., 2001;Akey et al., 2004;Cruciani et al., 2008;Levitan and Stapper, 2009;Asem et al., 2019). Given the greater numbers of polymorphic sites (12 sites), mutations (12 mutations), and haplotypes (12 haplotypes) in comparison with other localities, Tajima's D result might be ascribed to the demographic expansion of the Artemia population in AWWR. ...
