Human transport has unpredictable genetic, evolutionary consequences for marine species

Human activities, such as shipping, are having a noticeable impact on marine species and their native habitats. New research says that human forms of transport can disrupt natural genetic patterns that have been shaped over long periods of time. This has unknown consequences for both native and invasive species.
