European sea bass genome and its variation provide insights into adaptation to euryhalinity and speciation
The European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) is a temperate-zone euryhaline teleost of prime importance for aquaculture and fisheries. This species is subdivided into two naturally hybridizingExpand

Mitochondrial phylogeny of notothenioids: a molecular approach to Antarctic fish evolution and biogeography.
Antarctic waters represent a unique marine environment delimited by an oceanographic barrier, the Polar Front Zone, and characterized by constant subzero temperatures and presence of sea ice. A groupExpand

Pollutants bioavailability and toxicological risk from microplastics to marine mussels.
Microplastics represent a growing environmental concern for the oceans due to their potential of adsorbing chemical pollutants, thus representing a still unexplored source of exposure for aquaticExpand

Discord in the family Sparidae (Teleostei): divergent phylogeographical patterns across the Atlantic–Mediterranean divide
The Strait of Gibraltar has been proposed to be the divide between two marine biogeographical regions, the Mediterranean Sea and the Northeast Atlantic. Intraspecific studies have shown, for severalExpand

Molecular evolution at subzero temperatures: mitochondrial and nuclear phylogenies of fishes from Antarctica (suborder Notothenioidei), and the evolution of antifreeze glycopeptides.
Most fishes of the perciform suborder Notothenioidei are endemic to the subzero marine waters of Antarctica. A number of remarkable physiological attributes allow them to inhabit this extremeExpand

Krill evolution and the Antarctic ocean currents: evidence of vicariant speciation as inferred by molecular data
The phylogenetic relationships of the Antarctic krill Euphausia superba, the key species in the Antarctic food web, and other Antarctic and sub-Antarctic cuphausiids have been investigated using theExpand

Molecular zoogeography of Antarctic euphausiids and notothenioids: from species phylogenies to intraspecific patterns of genetic variation
Published and unpublished data are used to investigate possible mechanisms of species diversification in two key groups of Antarctic organisms: the Notothenioidei and the Euphausiidae. SpeciesExpand

Mitochondrial phylogeny of trematomid fishes (Nototheniidae, Perciformes) and the evolution of Antarctic fish.
The subfamily of fishes Trematominae is endemic to the subzero waters of antarctica and is part of the longer notothenioid radiation. Partial mitochondrial sequences from the 12S and 16S ribosomalExpand

Molecular evidence for genetic subdivision of Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba Dana) populations
Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba Dana) is a key species in the Antarctic food web and occurs on a circum-continental scale. Population genetic structure of this species was investigated by sequenceExpand
