Coastal estuaries are renowned for their ecological diversity and abundance (e.g., Beck et al., 2003; Bertness, 2006). The same qualities that attract a variety of species draw people to settle on their shores and even build cities. Over time, these biologically rich environments can either be overwhelmed by human activities or relieved if people take proactive steps to conserve and restore estuaries and their watersheds, making them more resilient to environmental and human-induced change. Thes...

Humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) are managed by the International Whaling Commission as 7 primary populations that breed in the tropics and migrate to 6 feeding areas around the Antarctic. There is little information on individual movements within breeding areas or migratory connections to feeding grounds. We sought to better understand humpback whale habitat use and movements at breeding areas off West Africa, and during the annual migration to Antarctic feeding areas. We also assessed ...

Manel and Holderegger [1] (hereafter MH) present a review of the methodological and conceptual advances that have occurred in the field of landscape genetics during the 10 years since the publication of Manel et al.’s [2] seminal review. MH proceed to discuss the future of the discipline, focusing on potential applications in terms of adaptation to global change and the conservation of natural resources. MH dedicate a section of their review to the progress made in the subfield of ‘seascape gene...

The assessment of population structure is a valuable tool for studying the ecology of endangered species and drafting conservation strategies. As we enhance our understanding about the structuring of natural populations, it becomes important that we also understand the processes behind these patterns. However, there are few rigorous assessments of the influence of environmental factors on genetic patterns in mobile marine species. Given their dispersal capabilities and localized habitat preferen...

Evaluating population structure in the marine environment is a challenging task when the species of interest is continuously distributed, and yet the use of population or stock structure is a crucial component of management and conservation strategies. The franciscana dolphin (Pontoporia blainvillei), a rare endangered coastal cetacean, suffers high levels of by-catch all along its distribution range in the Western South Atlantic, and questions have been raised about boundaries or divisions for ...
