Evolutionary lineages of four Lentipes species

5 Oct 2021

DNA analysis looking at small changes throughout the whole genome sorted the Lentipes gobies into four different lineages that corresponded to the color pattern of the males. The grey, unfilled shapes represent females from the respective species. Unlike the males, the females all looked identical irrespective of species, with a dull color pattern. This analysis was carried out as part of a new study by Dr. Ken Maeda, a staff scientist in the Marine Eco-Evo-Devo Unit.
