Tracing early stages of species differentiation: Ecological, morphological and genetic divergence of Galápagos sea lion populations

Abstract Background Oceans are high gene flow environments that are traditionally believed to hamper the build-up of genetic divergence. Despite this, divergence appears to occur occasionally at surprisingly small scales. The Galápagos archipelago provides an ideal opportunity to examine the evoluti...
