Abstract

Regionally extensive interlinking of principal rivers (Mataura, Oreti, Aparima) via coalescence of alluvial plains onshore, and offshore at sea level lowstands, has resulted in a widespread genetic homogenisation of fish populations. Geological and genetic data in combination provide powerful tools for the elucidation of local and regional geomorphic evolution where river capture is an important process. The AA. focus here on drainage connections that permit gene flow through river systems, and development of barriers that initiate genetic divergence between drainages in Southland, at the southern end of the South Island
