DNA-based molecular markers (gene sequences and hypervariable markers) provide high resolution tools to examine the evolutionary relationships between and within species. The latter approach is termed Phylogeography: the investigation relationships between populations in the context of their current distributions. These methods are important tools to understand how seaweeds have recolonized New England coastal waters since the Pleistocene glaciation and to understand the spread of invasive macroalgae.
