Tuesday, September 24, 2019. 6:00PM. Webinar: Where are all the fish going? Identifying patterns of genetic connectivity across the Hawaiian Archipelago. Richard Coleman, Hawai'i Institute of Marine Biology. Sponsored by OneNOAA Science Seminar Series. More information here.
Understanding connectivity and dispersal pathways, as well as identifying the underlying mechanisms influencing these patterns are essential to properly understand how biodiversity is generated in the sea and to inform management strategies. Since direct observation of larvae is impractical, a variety of genetic methods have been developed to characterize connectivity and dispersal patterns in marine organisms. Join Dr. Richard Coleman as he explains how he incorporated several genetic-based approaches to assess connectivity of two recreationally important reef fishes across the Hawaiian Archipelago to assess connectivity between the Main Hawaiian Islands and the Papāhanaumokuākea Marine National Monument.
