Maximilian Hirschfeld studied how barriers in the ocean shape genetic and biogeographic patterns in elasmobranchs (sharks, skates and rays). A global synthesis and results from two shallow-water reef sharks revealed how physical barriers and elasmobranch biology regulate genetic connectivity in the ocean, particularly in oceanic archipelagos and Indo-Pacific coral reefs.
