Abstract
    Molecular data can be used to pinpoint both contemporary and historical forces acting on biota but until recently such data have been largely obtained only from vertebrates, such as penguins (Baker et al. 2006), fish (Kuhn and Gaffney 2006; Rogers et al. 2006), and seals (Curtis et al. 2009), whose mobile adult stages are less affected by the barriers imposed by abiotic forces than are invertebrates. Exceptions include research focused on commercially important pelagic taxa, primarily krill (Goodall-Copestake et al. 2010; Batta-Lona et al. 2011). The few early studies on benthic invertebrates indicated the potential use of molecular data in interpretation of Antarctic speciation and connectivity by providing evidence of limited gene flow (Allcock et al. 1997), endemic radiation (Held 2000), cryptic speciation (Held 2003) and historical connectivity between the Antarctic and other oceans (Lörz and Held 2004).
