Data from: Implications of isolation and low genetic diversity in peripheral populations of an amphi-Atlantic coral

Flavia Nunes, Richard Norris & Nancy Knowlton
Limited dispersal and connectivity in marine organisms can have negative fitness effects in populations that are small and isolated, but reduced genetic exchange may also promote the potential for local adaptation. Here, we compare the levels of genetic diversity and connectivity in the coral Montastraea cavernosa among both central and peripheral populations throughout its range in the Atlantic. Genetic data from one mitochondrial and two nuclear loci in 191 individuals show that M. cavernosa is...
