Pillars of Hercules: is the Atlantic–Mediterranean transition a phylogeographical break?
TLDR
Results point to a combined signature of vicariance, palaeoclimate fluctuation and life‐history traits on the Atlantic–Mediterranean phylogeographical patterns, suggesting organismal determinism may play a far less significant role than marine biogeographers have generally believed. Expand
European sea bass genome and its variation provide insights into adaptation to euryhalinity and speciation
TLDR
Comparing predictions of alternative demographic models to the joint allele-frequency spectrum indicates that genomic islands of differentiation between sea bass lineages were generated by varying rates of introgression across the genome following a period of geographical isolation. Expand
Microsatellites and their genomic distribution, evolution, function and applications : A review with special reference to fish genetics
TLDR
In this review, genomic distribution, function, evolution and practical applications of microsatellites are considered, with special emphasis on fish genetics and aquaculture. Expand
Modeling genetic connectivity in sticklebacks as a guideline for river restoration
TLDR
The three‐spined stickleback was used to detect the geographical determinants of genetic connectivity in the eastern part of the Scheldt basin in Belgium, and Anthropogenic structures came out as the strongest determinant of population structure, when evaluated against a geographically well‐documented baseline model accounting for natural effects. Expand
Panmixia in the European eel: a matter of time…
TLDR
Support is provided for the panmixia hypothesis and the importance of temporal replication when assessing population structure of marine fish species is emphasized, as genetic variation among temporal samples within sites clearly exceeded the geographical component. Expand
Paleoclimatic history and vicariant speciation in the "sand goby" group (Gobiidae, Teleostei).
TLDR
The "star" phylogeny might suggest that these gobies evolved in a very short time period, possibly linked to the drastic alterations in the Mediterranean Sea during and immediately after the Messinian salinity crisis at the end of the Miocene. Expand
Late glacial history of the cold‐adapted freshwater fish Cottus gobio, revealed by microsatellites
TLDR
Results showed that the bullhead populations most probably persisted throughout the last major glaciation within the British Isles and within the drainages of the rivers Elbe and Main, providing the first genetic evidence for a glacial refugium in such close proximity to the European glacial margins. Expand
Timing of the population dynamics of bullhead Cottus gobio (Teleostei: Cottidae) during the Pleistocene
TLDR
The knowledge that dated interglacial periods correlated with population expansions; river captures, proglacial lake systems and sea level played a significant role in the dispersal and expansion either in northern or southern direction became possible to identify and date the colonization routes and putative palaeorefugia. Expand
Hybridization and phylogeography of the Mozambique tilapia Oreochromis mossambicus in southern Africa evidenced by mitochondrial and microsatellite DNA genotyping
TLDR
The objective of this work was to study the genetic diversity of the Mozambique tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus) in its native range, southern Africa, and provide a method for identifying hybrids with genetic markers. Expand
Quality control of refrigerated and cryopreserved semen using computer-assisted sperm analysis (CASA), viable staining and standardized fertilization in African catfish (Clarias gariepinus).
TLDR
Mounib's extender (M3, M4) provided the best cryoprotection to the spermatozoa for all post-thaw sperm quality measurements and at all freezing durations and sperm motility was positively related to fertility. Expand
