Seagrass connectivity in the hotspot of marine biodiversity

IMG_2397 - Copy

Most marine populations are spatially separated, but interconnected by individual movement described as connectivity. Population connectivity is a vital component in maintaining population persistence and resilience, thus highly relevant to conservation. It allows gene flow to spread advantageous genes and avoid local inbreeding. It also reduces the risk of local extinctions by facilitating continuous recruitment from other sites.
