Alana Alexander, Debbie Steel, Kendra Hoekzema, Sarah L. Mesnick, Daniel Engelhaupt, Iain Kerr, Roger Payne & Charles Scott Baker
The interplay of natural selection and genetic drift, influenced by geographic isolation, mating systems and population size, determines patterns of genetic diversity within species. The sperm whale provides an interesting example of a long-lived species with few geographic barriers to dispersal. Worldwide mtDNA diversity is relatively low, but highly structured among geographic regions and social groups, attributed to female philopatry. However, it is unclear whether this female philopatry is due to geographic regions or social...
