Population structure in the Pocillopora damicornis cryptic species complex along Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia

This poster was presented at the Australian Coral Reef Society Conference in Sydney, 28 - 30 August 2013.

A key characteristic influencing the recovery potential of coral reefs to environmental perturbations is the level of connectivity between adjacent reefs by the dispersal of larvae. Here we report on the population structure of P. damicornis along the Ningaloo Reef Marine Park using a panel of microsatellite markers and a mitochondrial gene marker (ORF).
