In the marine environment, where there are few physical boundaries to gene flow, other factors can generate intraspecific diversity with consequences for effective conservation and management. Here we compare two closely related dolphin species with a shared distribution in the Indian Ocean (IO) to better understand the biogeographic drivers of their population structure.
