Hybridization and restricted gene flow between native and introduced stocks of Alpine whitefish (Coregonus sp.) across multiple environments.

Winkler KA, Pamminger-Lahnsteiner B, Wanzenböck J, Weiss S - Mol. Ecol. (2010)

Bottom Line: Fifteen populations (N=747) were assessed for allelic variation at eight microsatellite loci and a reduced set (N=253) for variation across two mtDNA genes (cyt b and NADH-3).Although statistically congruent with inferences based on nuclear markers, mitochondrial haplotype data was not diagnostic with respect to native and non-native lineages, supporting that the Alpine region was colonized post-glacially by an admixture of mtDNA lineages, which coalesce >1 Ma.Mechanisms promoting or eroding lineage isolation are discussed, as well as a high potential to conserve native Alpine lineages despite the extensive historical use of introduced Baltic stocks.

fig05: Mean gill-raker counts ± 1 standard deviation for 13 samples including the OU-introduced reference (WAL) and one wild caught Baltic sample (OST).

Mentions: Furthermore, KLO individuals exhibit an atypical number of gill rakers, with a mean of 43 (SD 3.9), while the means of all other populations ranged from 32 to 38 (SD from 2.2 to 3.5; Fig. 5) excluding the possibility that these fish stem from contemporary stocking from any population examined in this study. If we can infer that Coregonus is indeed native to some lakes south of the Alps, then it is logical to assume that they were also found in the WOE population, one of the largest lakes in the Drau drainage. WOE contained a number of novel haplotypes genealogically related to the common haplotype in KLO, as well as several common private microsatellite alleles (data not shown) providing at least some evidence of their possible common ancestry.
