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)
