Abstract
    An overview is presented of the principal mechanisms responsible for population genetic structure in marine organisms and the methods used for studying population differentiation. We discuss this in relation to the three species of marine fish under study: the sand goby, Pomatoschistus minutus (Pallas, 1770), Lozano's goby, Pomatoschistus lozanoi (de Buen, 1923), and the common goby, Pomatoschistus microps (Kroyer, 1838) (Teleostei, Gobiidae). We summarise the available data on (1) the biology of these species and (2) past and present-day oceanographic features throughout their distributional range in order to formulate hypotheses concerning their genetic structure.
