Population Genetics and Phylogeography of Galapagos Fur Seals.

Published in Frontiers in Genetics | May 19, 2022
Pinnipeds found across islands provide an ideal opportunity to examine the evolutionary process of population subdivision affected by several mechanisms.
 
In the report, the genetic consequences of the geographic distribution of rookeries in Galapagos fur seals in creating population structure.
The investigation found that the marked structuring of populations recovered in GFS is likely related to an interplay between long-term site fidelity and long-distance migration in both male and female individuals, probably influenced by varying degrees of marine productivity.
