Kevin C. R. Kerr and Carla J. Dove Delimiting shades of gray: phylogeography of the Northern Fulmar, Fulmarus glacialis Ecology and Evolution 3
We used a multigene phylogenetic approach to investigate population divergence in a Holarctic seabird with an unusual distribution of color morphs. We found land and ice to be a major barrier to dispersal, effectively segregating Atlantic and Pacific populations into independent evolutionary units; however, divergence estimates predate those documented for other Holarctically distributed seabirds. We also examined the link between MC1R variation and color morph but found no correlation. Photos by Mark K. Peck.
