Abstract: To be able to interpret patterns of biodiversity it is important to understand the processes by which new species evolve and how closely related species remain reproductively isolated and ecologically differentiated. This thesis centers on the evolution of the two brown algae Fucus radicans and Fucus vesiculosus in the Baltic Sea, where Fucus radicans very recently diverged from F. vesiculosus, and where both species have aquired the unique character of asexual recruitment forming clones.
