Top-down control of sea-level refugia & diversification-Mol Ecol (2018)

Our new paper shows how sea-level change can drive genetic diversification of coastal aquatic species, and that this process is more pronounced on tectonically steepened coastlines. This mechanism is broadly applicable, and shows the top-down physical forcing of evolutionary (i.e. population genetic) processes.
