High similarity between flanking regions of different microsatellites detected within each of two species of Lepidoptera: Parnassius apollo and Euphydryas aurinia
Microsatellite flanking regions have been compared in two butterfly species. Several microsatellite flanking regions showed high similarity to one another among different microsatellites within aExpand

Mitochondrial phylogeny of the European cyprinids: implications for their systematics, reticulate evolution, and colonization time.
Two different mitochondrial genes, the cytochrome b and the 16S rDNA, support the same European cyprinid molecular phylogeny: the most basal subfamily is the paraphyletic Rasborinae, the CyprininaeExpand

An Archaeological and Historical Review of the Relationships between Felids and People
ABSTRACT A review of the archaeological and historical records reveals several lines of evidence that people have had close relationships with felids. Almost 40% of felid species have been tamed onExpand

Growth and reproduction of the gilthead seabream Sparus aurata in Mellah lagoon (north-eastern Algeria)
Gilthead seabream Sparus aurata (L.), a protandrous hermaphrodite, was caught in Mellah lagoon (Algeria) from July 1997 to June 1998. Its age, growth and reproduction were studied. Fish ranged inExpand

Isolation and characterization of polymorphic microsatellites in Parnassius apollo and Euphydryas aurinia (Lepidoptera)
Microsatellite loci were developed from Parnassius apollo and Euphydryas aurinia , two endangered Palaearctic butterfly species. Respectively, six and five polymorphic loci were characterized from anExpand

Characterization of endoglucanase A from Clostridium cellulolyticum.
A construction was carried out to obtain a high level of expression in Escherichia coli of the gene celCCA, coding for the endoglucanase A from Clostridium cellulolyticum (EGCCA). The enzyme wasExpand

Is the European spatial distribution of the HIV-1-resistant CCR5-Delta32 allele formed by a breakdown of the pathocenosis due to the historical Roman expansion?
We studied the possible effects of the expansion of ancient Mediterranean civilizations during the five centuries before and after Christ on the European distribution of the mutant allele for theExpand

Atherina punctata and Atherina lagunae (Pisces, Atherinidae), new species in the Mediterranean Sea. 1. Biometric investigations of three Atherinid species.
Discriminative canonical analysis of 87 biometric parameters in the marine and lagoon atherinids of 'Atherina boyeri' complex from the Mediterranean Sea helps defining three distinct atherinidExpand

Atherina punctata and Atherina lagunae (Pisces, Atherinidae), new species found in the Mediterranean sea. 2. Molecular investigations of three Atherinid species.
On the basis of morphoanatomical parameters, the sand smelt species (Atherina boyeri Risso, 1810) is viewed as a highly polymorphic complex. In this study, intraspecific sequence variation in aExpand

Morphometric or morpho-anatomal and genetic investigations highlight allopatric speciation in Western Mediterranean lagoons within the Atherina lagunae species (Teleostei, Atherinidae)
Current distribution of Atherina lagunae poses an interesting biogeographical problem as this species inhabits widely separate circum-Mediterranean lagoons. Statistical analyses of 87 biometricExpand
