Miranda, Ivana ; Gomes, Kelly M. ; Ribeiro, Felipe B. ; Araujo, Paula B. ; Souty-Grosset, Catherine ; Schubart, Christoph D.


The characterisation of intraspecific genetic diversity in representatives of the South American crayfish genus Parastacus Huxley, 1879 is here carried out for the first time by comparing populations of Parastacus brasiliensis (von Martens, 1869) as currently defined. Phylogenetic reconstructions based on mitochondrial and nuclear markers indicate the existence of multiple lineages, of which only ...
