  1. 1. Cryptic surgeonfish species:Phylogeographic survey reveals hidden biodiversity in the Pacific OceanJ. DiBattista, C. Wilcox, M. Craig, L. Rocha, and B. Bowen Hawai’i Institute of Marine Biology, University of Hawaii
  2. 2. Genetic connectivity of reef fish Most have high dispersal potential: - pelagic larvae (weeks to months)
  3. 3. Genetic connectivity of reef fish Most have high dispersal potential: - pelagic larvae (weeks to months) Direct tagging logistically difficult:  Molecular tools important here
  4. 4. Genetic connectivity of reef fish Most have high dispersal potential: - pelagic larvae (weeks to months) Direct tagging logistically difficult:  Molecular tools important here Scale of dispersal fundamental for: - defining management units - designing marine reserves (MPAs) - Identifying sources versus sinks

Analysis of genetic structure 1) Haplotype and nucleotide diversity 2) Neutrality test statistics: Tajima’s D and Fu’s Fs 3) Connectivity via φ ST values: – Between all populations – Between NWHI & MHI – Between Hawaii and Pacific 4) mtDNA sequence divergence 5) Mismatch distribution analysis:  Coalescence times (from τ estimates) 6) MIGRATE software analysis:  number of migrants per generation
