Superclass Gnathostomata jawed vertebrates. In ancy,odon phylogenetic trees Figures 4 and 5the populations cannot be separated because individuals belonging to very distant geographical regions group together. BMC Evol Biol 2: Confused by a class within a class or an order within an order? Our analyses showed that the two Macrodon groups consist of populations from areas that are influenced by different surface currents and therefore we can suggest that this is one of the barriers that prevents genetic flow and isolates the Macrodon populations of the tropical and subtropical groups.

ancyllodon Class Actinopterygii ray-finned fishes. Table 2 shows that 29 different cytochrome b sequences were obtained from 53 M. Similarly, Figure 3 shows the 11 diagnostic sites 4, 19, 30, 35, 93,,of the 16S rRNA gene which differentiate the two Macrodon groups. According to some authors, population isolation can occur during strong alterations mmacrodon environmental conditions, such as climatic changes and geological phenomena Stepien et al.

Genetic characterization of species of commercial interest is a primary condition for any fishing control policy, the study described in this paper being the first on the molecular characterization of the Anxylodon. Mol Phylogenet Evol 9 1: While ADW staff and contributors provide references to books and websites that we believe are reputable, we cannot necessarily endorse the contents of references beyond our control.


The nucleotide composition of the cytochrome b sequences was Acknowledgments This paper is contribution n.

The degree of confidence for the groups on the maximum-parsimony tree was evaluated by bootstrap macroeon Felsenstein, Mol Phylogenet Evol 7: The ADW Team gratefully acknowledges their support.

There was no perfect geographic structuring of the sampled populations in the clades, as is shown by specimens from one locality grouping with specimens from another, geographically distant, locality. The History and Formation of Species.

The results clearly show two genetically different groups which have nucleotide divergence levels and genetic structuring patterns that suggest they may be different species, disagreeing with the traditional taxonomic system which allocates only one species to the genus Macrodon in the macroson Atlantic. Futuyma postulated that low levels of genetic flow and population isolation are important for speciation to take place.

Family Sciaenidae Drums or croakers. A possible cause for the marked genetic differentiation of the tropical and subtropical Macrodon groups could be patterns of oceanic circulation caused by surface marine currents, e. Connect with us Help us improve the site by taking our survey. In marine environments the geographic structure of populations may be influenced by local environmental conditions and the life history of the species, hence the potential for species dispersal does not always predict the amount of gene flow between geographically separated populations Burton, ; Palumbi, Macrodon ancylodon specieswiki Macrodon ancylodon.

Even when specimens from the same or close geographic regions compose a clade, the grouping is not statistically supported. Considering that this species represents an important economic resource, confirmation of whether M. Estimation of the number of nucleotide substitutions was conducted for both genes using the method of Tamura and Neithe parameter of the gamma distribution 0.


The occupation of cooler water environments may have caused the development of macrodpn mechanisms to these environments and later isolation of tropical and subtropical populations. This pattern of separation between the groups fits the type I phylogeographic pattern proposed in the recent classification by Avise where the lines are defined by haplotype groups spatially separated by an effective barrier to genetic flow.

August 29, accepted: Comp Biochem Physiol A 4: The nucleotide sequence data determined for the present paper was deposited in GenBank under accession numbers AYAY Site could also be considered a good marker, as all the individuals of the tropical group possess adenine, while the nucleotide sites except for RS2 and ARG3 from the subtropical group possess guanine. Retrieved from ” https: According to the allopatric speciation model, temporary geographic isolation is required to form reproductive barriers Sturmbauer et al.

Only the cytochrome b gene was used in this type of analysis, the genetic distance matrix being obtained using the method of Tamura and Nei and the geographic distance matrix constructed by transforming the latitude of the geographic coordinates of the sample points into kilometers, with the help of a program available on the site www.
