Data from: Temporal genetic structure in a poecilogonous polychaete: the interplay of developmental mode and environmental stochasticity

Jenni E. Kesäniemi, Marina Mustonen, Christoffer Boström, Benni W. Hansen & K. Emily Knott
Background: Temporal variation in the genetic structure of populations can be caused by multiple factors, including natural selection, stochastic environmental variation, migration, or genetic drift. In benthic marine species, the developmental mode of larvae may indicate a possibility for temporal genetic variation: species with dispersive planktonic larvae are expected to be more likely to show temporal genetic variation than species with benthic or brooded non-dispersive larvae, due to differences in larval mortality and dispersal ability....
