Illex coindetii is the most common benthic ommastrephid squid exploited by bottom trawl in the Mediterranean Sea. A recent study examining trends in population metrics based on data from the International Bottom Trawl Surveys in the Mediterranean (MEDITS) has shown an increasing trend in average lengths of I. coindetii sampled in the eastern Ionian Sea,(More)
Spatial distribution and life history aspects of Pagellus bogaraveo in the eastern Ionian Sea were investigated using the data from 13 different studies carried out in the area from 1983 to 2010. The spatial patterns of the abundance, biomass and mean size showed that the species inhabits the shallow waters of the shelf (<170 m depth) as juveniles up to a(More)
Receivedfor publication January 8, 1960. comparatively few reports of the successful isola tion and serial propagation of new cell lines in these media or modifications thereof (4, 6, 11, 25, 30, 32, 46, 47, 52, 61). Soon after the initiation of a research program based upon mammalian cell culture in these labo ratories in 1956, it became evident that, in(More)
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogues (GnRH-a) are currently used in combination with gonadotropins in ovarian stimulation for in vitro fertilization programs (IVF). The present study aims at evaluating the treatment cycles for IVF for which human menopausal gonadotropin (HMG) was initiated only when pituitary desensitization was confirmed regardless of(More)
Five blue-green and one red algal species produced carbon monoxide during photosynthetic growth. The blue-green algae synthesized CO and phycocyanobilin in equimolar quantities at identical rates. The red alga, Porphyridium cruentum, incorporated Delta-aminolevulinic acid-5-(14)C into phycoerythrobilin and CO. The ratio of the specific radioactivity of(More)
Generalized Additive Modelling (GAM) techniques were used to model the time series of abundance data of deep-water pink shrimp, collected during the MEDITS bottom trawl surveys carried out in the Greek seas from 1996 to 2006, as functions of the sampling location (longitude–latitude), depth and year. The life stages of the species were taken into account.(More)
Diet and feeding strategy of the blackmouth catshark Galeus melastomus in the deep waters of the eastern Ionian Sea were investigated. Sampling was carried out using experimental bottom longline fishing at depths ranging from 300 to 855 m in summer and autumn 2010. Diet variability with fish size, season, area, sex and depth zone was tested and only season(More)
