Underestimation of the effect of biologiocal invasions in phylogeographic reconstructions as seen in Daphnia magna (Crustacea, Cladocera).

Abstract

A phylogeographic analysis of Daphnia magna Straus 1820 (Crustacea, Cladocera) was used to study the consequences of underestimating the effects of biological invasions, namely, the contamination of a total pool of haplotypes by adventive sequences, on the results of phylogeographic analysis. An algorithm for identifying the latter is proposed.
