How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Gracilaria chilensis is the main cultivated seaweed in Chile. The low genetic diversity observed in the Chilean population has been associated with the over‐exploitation of natural beds and/or the founder effect that occurred during the post‐glacial colonization from New Zealand. How these processes have affected its evolutionary trajectory before...

Aim Accurate characterization of evolutionary units (species or populations) underlies all ecological and evolutionary studies and is crucial to conservation planning. Seascapes have long been thought to be highly permeable to gene flow, yet over the last decade building evidence has shown that barriers to gene flow in marine environments are much...
Abstract Studying population structure and genetic diversity at fine spatial scales is key for a better understanding of demographic processes that influence population connectivity. This is particularly important in marine benthic organisms that rely on larval dispersal to maintain connectivity among populations. Here, we report the results of a g...
Water pollution due to human activities produces sedimentation, excessive nutrients, and toxic chemicals, and this, in turn, has an effect on the normal endocrine functioning of living beings. Overall, water pollution may affect some components of the fitness of organisms (e.g., developmental time and fertility). Some toxic compounds found in pollu...
Studying the geographic scale of gene flow and population structure in marine populations can be a powerful tool with which to infer patterns of larval dispersal averaged across generations. Here, we describe the development of ten novel polymorphic microsatellite markers for an important endemic ascidian, Pyura chilensis, of the southeastern Pacif...
It has been recognized that numerous synthetic compounds like Bisphenol A (BPA) and nonylphenols (NP) are present in effluents from wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) at levels of parts per billion (μg L-1) or even parts per trillion (ng L-1) with a high potential to cause endocrine disruption in the aquatic environment. Constructed wetlands (CW) a...
