Just to finish the thought about rainbow darter population genetics, the
group I referred to includes Ray, Wood and Simons from St. Louis Univ.
(first 2) and Univ. Minnesota (Simons). They sequenced the cytochrome b gene
of the mitochondrial DNA for comparative purposes. Various people have
claimed as many as five species in this "complex" but Ray et al.'s work
didn't support that.

In honor of that, chopped earthworms for everyone!
