Alburnoides manyasensis, sp. n., is described from the Koca Stream (Lake Manyas drainage, Marmara Sea basin) in Anatolia. It is distinguished from all species of Alburnoides in Turkey and adjacent regions, Alburnoides tzanevi (Rezovska [Rezve], Istranca and Terkos streams in the western Black Sea drainage), Alburnoides cf. smyrnae (Banaz Stream, a drainage(More)
Three new species of Alburnoides, Alburnoides emineae sp. n., Alburnoides velioglui sp. n., Alburnoides recepi sp. n., are described from the Euphrates River drainages (Persian Gulf basin) in eastern Anatolia, Turkey. Alburnoides emineae, from Beyazsu Stream (south-eastern Euphrates River drainage), is distinguished from all species of Alburnoides in Turkey(More)
Heat shock proteins (HSPs), originally identified as heat-inducible gene products, are a family of highly conserved proteins that respond to a wide variety of stress including oxidative stress. Although both acute and chronic oxidative stress have been well demonstrated to induce HSP responses, little evidence is available whether increased HSP levels(More)
Preliminary data on growth and reproduction parameters of Cobitis simplicispina from Darýözü Creek in the Kizilimak basin in Kirşehir-Turkey were presented. The age of the specimens collected during a period between March and June 2002, ranged from 1+ to 4+. The observed maximum total length of males is 91.8 mm, and 97 mm for females. The von Bertalanffy(More)
Three new Alburnoides species are described from the southern Black Sea basin. Alburnoides kurui, new species, from the Yeşilırmak drainage, is distinguished from other species of Alburnoides in the southern Black Sea basin, the Marmara basin and the Anatolian Aegean basin by having a scaleless keel between the posterior pelvic fin base and the anus or with(More)
Common name: Yağ baliği (TR). Conservation status: Present status EN (Crivelli 2006), DD since 1996 (Baillie et al. 2004). Identification: Gill rakers 8–9, lateral line scales 72–83, incomplete, with narrow interruptions; D III (IV) 8; last unbranched dorsal ray, not thickened, flexible, A III (7) 8; pharyngeal teeth 5-5 or 5-4; total number of vertebrae(More)
The most significant morphometric characters differentiating the specimens of Cobitis simplicispina collected from the Sakarya-Kizilirmak river basins, Cobitis turcica collected from Bagilli and not so far recognized species from Saz Lake were investigated in this work. ANOVA (Analysis of Variance) and canonical discriminant analysis were applied to 44(More)
Pseudophoxinus mehmeti, new cyprinid species from the Alanköy basin in south-western Turkey, is distinguished from all species of Pseudophoxinus in adjacent regions by the combination of the following characters: body slender, its length 1.3-1.5 times its depth; caudal peduncle length 1.6-2.0 times its depth; mouth almost superior, with the tip of the(More)
Common name: Brown spined loach (English) Kahverengi çöpçü balığı (Turkish). Conservation status: Critically Endangered (IUCN 2009). Identification: Brownish body, consisting only of small dark-grey dots through the body and head and blotches of Z2 and Z4 (Gambetta 1934) are very small, indistinct or confluent (Kottelat and Freyhof 2007). A strong keel is(More)
