Even when specimens from the same or close geographic regions compose a clade, the grouping is not statistically supported. Mol Dev Evol J Zool Syst Evol Res 37 3: The nucleotide sequence data determined for the present paper was deposited in GenBank under accession numbers AYAY Wikisource 0 entries edit.

In our study, we observed that there is marked geographic structuring in the genus Macrodon that diverges at the Brazilian northeast into two genetically distinct clades tropical and subtropical.

From a commercial point of view, M.

Rev Bras Biol 56 1: These results suggest that these two groups have already reached a stage of sufficient genetic differentiation to be considered as distinct species and not just as a single species for the western Atlantic, as is traditionally accepted in the current taxonomy based on morphological data. The family Sciaenidae contains about 70 genera and species and is an important world fish resource Nelson,this family being represented in South Atlantic waters by about 21 genera and 57 species, of which more than 30 are found along the Brazilian coast.

Sinauer Associates, Sunderland, Massachussets. Classification Kingdom Animalia animals Animalia: 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 Mantel test showed a positive correlation between genetic and geographic distances, although significant geographic structuring for M.

In a study of macrovon meristic and morphometric traits of M. Several studies have assessed the degree of genetic differentiation of fish populations based on mitochondrial DNA sequences, especially cytochrome b and D-loop region sequences Dawson et al.

The levels of divergence found between tropical and subtropical M. Comp Biochem Physiol A 4: The low divergence values which we found in the M. Superclass Gnathostomata jawed vertebrates.

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. Wikiversity 0 entries edit. Because of its wide distribution this fish may be subject to geographic isolation and this may have resulted in distinct populations along its coastal range.

Please see our brief essay. Mol Phylogenet Evol 7: To cite this page: Stepien has suggested that the barrier of warm water in the south of the Gulf of California is the cause of the isolation and consequent genetic divergence which occurs among spotted sand bass Paralabrax maculatofasicatus populations in the Gulf of California and the Pacific coast.

The occupation of cooler water environments may have caused the development of adaptation mechanisms to these environments and later isolation of tropical and subtropical populations.

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 western Atlantic. Mol Biology Evol 15 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.


Studies carried out in the tropical and anculodon regions of Brazil have shown that this species has distinct reproduction periods, December and February in the South Juras and Yamagguti, ; Yamaguti, ; Vazzoler, and July-August and October-December in the north Camargo-Zorro, Integrated Taxonomic Information System. August 29, accepted: Correlation between genetic distance and geographic distance.

When we compared the nucleotide sequences of the tropical Macrodon group with the subtropical group we found, surprisingly, high nucleotide divergence, with values reaching 4. Mitochondrial DNA has been extensively studied ancyloodn fish and techniques based on mitochondrial DNA successfully applied to taxonomic questions, the well characterized cytochrome b gene having been particularly useful for the analysis of amcrodon relationship between recently diverged taxa such as populations and species Stepien and Kocher, as well as being one of the genes most studied in fish systematics and Perciformes phylogeography Roe et al.

The History and Formation of Species. Similarly, Figure 3 shows the 11 diagnostic sites 4, 19, 30, 35, 93,,of the 16S rRNA gene which differentiate the two Macrodon groups.

Retrieved from ” https: Class Actinopterygii ray-finned fishes. Taxonomy database of the U. Because of the low population genetic variability in the 16S rRNA and cytochrome b genes, clearly defined subgroups could not be identified in the tropical and subtropical groups either in the neighbor-joining or maximum-parsimony trees, so that that each group formed a highly polytomous anncylodon.
