Local adaptation and maternal effects in two species of marine gastropod (genus Crepidula) that differ in dispersal potential.Pechenik, Jan A.
Adaptation to local conditions should be less likely in species with wide dispersal since periodic immigration from populations not under selection would counteract the short-term results of local selection. To test this hypothesis, we used 2 species of sympatric marine gastropods of the genus Crepidula that have vastly different early life dispersal stages. Offspring of C. fornicata emerge as lon... read more
