Table 4 Pairwise genetic distances (ΦST) among groups for each species. The locations of each intertidal and subtidal species were divided into Yellow Sea (YS), East China Sea (ECS) and South China Sea (SCS) along the China Coast. Reference: Cellana toreuma, Dong et al. [20]; Sargassum horneri, Hu et al. [36]; Atrina pectinata, Liu et al. [37].*P < 0.05; ***P < 0.001
