Macrodon ancylodon

Because of the low population genetic variability ancyloson 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 macrodpn polytomous clade.

Considering that this ancylodo represents an important economic resource, confirmation of whether M. University of Hawaii, Honolulu, 46 pp. The low divergence values which we found in the M. Phylogenetic analyses The two Ancykodon segments studied did not show any indication of saturation in their sequences, so that both could be used in the phylogenetic analyses. 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.

Academic Press, USA, pp The 16S rRNA mitochondrial gene has also been shown to be a good marker to differentiate fish species, and has been used in mcrodon intergeneric and interspecific studies in several families of Perciformes Ritchie et al. Macrodon ancylodon King weakfish Facebook. 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.

Mol Phylogenet Evol 13 3: The Mantel clustering test, with permutations, was used to assess the correlation between the genetic distance and the geographic distance between populations Mantel, ancyloodon the Genetix program 4.

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. Systema ichthyologiae iconibus CX illustratum Plate 25 Correlation between genetic distance and geographic distance.

The ADW Team gratefully acknowledges their support. For the cytochrome b gene close-related species of Selene Selene setapinis, S. The Macrodon populations in the two groups probably developed mechanisms to adapt to the type of environment where they lived and this served as a barrier enhancing the geographical isolation of the populations.

Services on Demand Journal. This paper is contribution n. Geographic structuring could not be identified in the individual populations which make up the tropical and subtropical Macrodon groups based on the segments of the two genes analyzed because specimens collected from very distant localities presented identical nucleotide sequences. There was no perfect geographic structuring of the sampled populations in the clades, as is shown by specimens from one locality grouping with specimens from another, geographically distant, locality.

The two DNA segments studied did not show any indication of saturation in their sequences, so that both could be used in the phylogenetic analyses.

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.


Saturation was not observed in the 16S rRNA sequences. Genetic characterization of species of commercial interest is a primary condition for any fishing control policy, the study described in this paper being the first on the molecular characterization of the M. Results Nucleotide composition Table 2 shows that 29 different cytochrome b sequences were obtained from 53 M.

Integrated Taxonomic Information System. Wiktionary 0 entries edit. For any species, the success of conservation programs and the creation of effective management policies depends on determining the levels of genetic divergence within and between populations and developing strategies to maintain genetic diversity.

August 29, accepted: Wikibooks 0 entries edit. Mol Phylogenet Evol 19 1: Superclass Gnathostomata jawed vertebrates. In the phylogenetic trees Figures 4 and 5the populations cannot be separated because individuals belonging to very distant geographical regions group together. Molecular Evolutionary Genetics Analysis software. Species Macrodon ancylodon King weakfish.

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.


Cladograms reflecting similarities between the populations were constructed using the distance matrix and maximum-parsimony techniques, deletions and insertions being treated as a fifth base in the xncylodon analyses.
