Population genetics of invasive common carp Cyprinus carpio L. in coastal drainages in eastern Australia
Abstract:The common carp Cyprinus carpio introduced in two drainages in eastern Australia are largely descended from European common carp, and in a third drainage they descend largely from East Asian common carp. The partial genetic differentiation among the species in those drainages is consistent with their origins.
