Evolution of marine organisms is strongly influenced by the seascape heterogeneity in distinct spatial scales. Ocean circulation and variations in physicochemical characteristics of water masses can represent bridges and barriers to gene flow at the same time, playing an important role toward intraspecific variability and speciation. Nonetheless, highly mobile organisms, such as seabirds, can easily overcome such barriers and show differentiation even between nearly located breeding sites, shedding light in additional factors promoting variability in this group. Based on my research, I will provide on overview about seabird evolution and the mechanisms that influence gene flow in the group, with special focus on tropical seabirds.
