Hi all,

I just wanted to take a minute to draw your attention to our new paper
addressing the population genetics of *Orbicella faveolata* throughout the
Caribbean. Our results generally corroborate previous findings of an
east-west genetic barrier across the basin, and interestingly we found
relatively strong genetic differentiation within the Mesoamerican Barrier
Reef System.

This paper is open-access and can be found in *Ecology and Evolution*:

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or would like to
know more.
