Stephen Sabatino (CIBIO-InBIO/UP) | November 28, 2014 - 14h30 | CIBIO’s Auditorium, Campus de Vairão

 

 

Alosa alosa and A. fallax are anadromous species in Eurasia that have adapted to freshwater environments in several locations throughout their ranges. I will discuss our ongoing work on population structure in A. alosa and A. fallax and the effects of hybridization between the two species. In addition, I will outline our work on the genetics of their adaptations to freshwater environments.

 

Stephen Sabatino is post-doctoral researcher at CIBIO-InBIO. Stephen’s research focuses on understanding the genetics of ecological adaptation in anadromous species under the advisement of Paulo Alexandrino (AGE Group).
