Oceanic and local environmental conditions as forcing mechanisms of the glass eel recruitment to the southernmost European estuary
Abstract The main oceanic and local environmental traits forcing the glass eel Anguilla anguilla (L., 1758) recruitment to the southernmost European estuary, the Guadalquivir (SW Spain), were studiedExpand

Morphometric study of the Iberian Aphanius (Actinopterygii, Cyprinodontiformes), with description of a new species
Morphometric variation in Aphanius iberus was analysed to demostrate the remarkable genetic divergence between Mediterranean and Atlantic population of Iberia. Four discrete morphotypes in males andExpand

SPREAD OF THE ALIEN BLEAK ALBURNUS ALBURNUS ( LINNAEUS , 1758 ) ( ACTINOPTERYGII , CYPRINIDAE ) IN THE IBERIAN PENINSULA : THE ROLE OF RESERVOIRS
Since its first record in a tributary of the Ebro basin in 1992, the bleak Alburnus alburnus has spread to almost the whole Iberian Peninsula. In this paper (based on electrofishing surveys in 598Expand

Nuclear and mitochondrial data reveal high genetic divergence among Atlantic and Mediterranean populations of the Iberian killifish Aphanius iberus (Teleostei: Cyprinodontidae)
The molecular divergence and phylogenetic relationships of the Iberian populations of Aphanius iberus were established using allozymes and the complete cytochrome b gene sequence. Congruent resultsExpand
