Phylogeography and historical demography of the anadromous fish Leucopsarion petersii in relation to geological history and oceanography around the Japanese Archipelago
Phylogeographical patterns of marine and diadromous organisms are often influenced by dynamic ocean histories. For example, the marine realm around the Japanese Archipelago is an interesting area forExpand

Temporal variation in growth of yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares) larvae in the Panama Bight, 1990
Tuna larvae (at flexion, postflexion, and transformation stages) were collected by dip net and light traps at night in the northwestern Panama Bight during the season of reduced upwellingExpand

DNA barcoding and morphological analyses revealed validity of Diadema clarki Ikeda, 1939 (Echinodermata, Echinoidea, Diadematidae)
Abstract A long-spined sea urchin Diadema-sp reported from Japanese waters was genetically distinct from all known Diadema species, but it remained undescribed. Extensive field surveys in Japan withExpand

Two species of philometrid nematodes (philometridae) from marine fishes off Japan, including Philometroides branchiostegi sp. n. from Branchiostegus japonicus (malacanthidae).
Gravid females of two species of philometrid nematodes (Philometridae) were collected from marine perciform fishes in Japanese waters, mainly from the southern Sea of Japan. Based on light microscopyExpand

Species and lineage identification for yellowfin Thunnus albacares and bigeye T. obesus tunas using two independent multiplex PCR assays
Based on nucleotide substitutions in four mitochondrial DNA regions, we developed multiplex PCR assays for identifying species/lineages in yellowfin Thunnus albacares and bigeye T. obesus tunas. TheExpand

Isolation and characterization of 11 polymorphic microsatellite loci in the whitegirdled goby (Pterogobius zonoleucus) and cross‐species amplification in the serpentine goby (P. elapoides)
Eleven polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed from a (CA)n‐enrichment library of the whitegirdled goby (Pterogobius zonoleucus). Polymorphism at these loci ranged from 2 to 12 alleles, andExpand
