Data from: Atypical panmixia in a European dolphin species (Delphinus delphis); implications for the evolution of diversity across oceanic boundaries.

Andre E. Moura, Ada Natoli, Emer Rogan & Alan R. Hoelzel
Despite the scarcity of geographical barriers in the ocean environment, delphinid cetaceans often exhibit marked patterns of population structure on a regional scale. The European coastline is a prime example, with species exhibiting population structure across well defined environmental boundaries. Here we undertake a comprehensive population genetic study on the European common dolphin (Delphinus delphis, based on 492 samples and 15 loci) and establish that this species shows exceptional panmixia across most of the study...
