Fishes of the tropical Indo-Pacific family Siganidae comprise 28 species, characterized by their body proportions and their colour patterns. A mitochondrial phylogeny of 20 Siganidae species was produced to infer their evolutionary history. Three distinct, major clades were found, that also correspond to the early radiation of the family into three major(More)
The polymorphism of the mitochondrial gene cytochrome oxidase III was studied in the Mediterranean octopus, Octopus vulgaris Cuvier, 1797. A total of 202 specimens from seven sampling sites were analysed with the aim of elucidating patterns of genetic structure in the central Mediterranean Sea and to give an insight into the phylogeny of the Octopus genus.(More)
The fish genus Siganus (Siganidae) is widely distributed in the coastal habitats of all the tropical Indo-Pacific, with 28 nominal species recognized so far, based on general morphology and coloration patterns. A mitochondrial phylogeny of 16 Siganidae species, based on the partial nucleotide sequences of the cytochome b gene, was produced. Individual(More)
The brown trout populating the western part of the Pyrenees mountains (southern France) constitute a patchwork of differentiated forms for two main reasons: the region corresponds to the maximum extension of the modern Atlantic form at the expense of the ancestral Atlantic one; stocking is commonly practiced. This situation renders urgent in this region the(More)
In this study, analyses of 87 biometric parameters and of genetic variation of the cytochrome b gene show that A. boyeri populations from shallow waters of Tunisian Islands (Kerkennah) belong, in spite their marine habitat, to the lagoonal group. Moreover, in all the phylogenetic analyses, the sequences of these marine atherines constitute with the lagoon(More)
Microsatellite markers have been used to study the genetic variability of rainbow wrasse (Coris julis) Mediterranean and Atlantic populations. Differentiation tests failed to reveal any significant genetic differentiation among samples from continental Portugal and the Azores, despite more than 1800 km of geographical separation. Preliminary results tended(More)
