Because most clonal vertebrates have hybrid genomic constitutions, tight linkages are assumed among hybridization, clonality, and polyploidy. However, predictions about how these processesExpand

Dynamic Formation of Asexual Diploid and Polyploid Lineages: Multilocus Analysis of Cobitis Reveals the Mechanisms Maintaining the Diversity of Clones
Given the hybrid genomic constitutions and increased ploidy of many asexual animals, the identification of processes governing the origin and maintenance of clonal diversity provides usefulExpand

Divergence with gene flow between Ponto‐Caspian refugia in an anadromous cyprinid Rutilus frisii revealed by multiple gene phylogeography
The Black and Caspian Seas have experienced alternating periods of isolation and interconnection over many Milankovitch climate oscillations and most recently became separated when the meltwaterExpand

Diversity of European spined loaches (genus Cobitis L.): an update of the geographic distribution of the Cobitis taenia hybrid complex with a description of new molecular tools for species and hybrid
Although the unique features of asexual reproduction and hybridization among European spined loaches (genus Cobitis) have recently attracted the attention of conservation biologists, faunists andExpand

Genetic diversity and distribution patterns of diploid and polyploid hybrid water frog populations (Pelophylax esculentus complex) across Europe
Polyploidization is a rare yet sometimes successful way for animals to rapidly create geno‐ and phenotypes that may colonize new habitats and quickly adapt to environmental changes. In this study, weExpand

Depleted genetic variation of the European ground squirrel in Central Europe in both microsatellites and the major histocompatibility complex gene: implications for conservation
Habitat fragmentation may influence the genetic make-up and adaptability of endangered populations. To facilitate genetic monitoring of the endangered European ground squirrel (EGS), we analyzed 382Expand

Standard Metabolic Rate (SMR) is inversely related to erythrocyte and genome size in allopolyploid fish of the Cobitis taenia hybrid complex
Summary 1. As a first approximation, whole-body metabolic rate can be considered as the sum of metabolic rates of constituent cells. Yet, among several current explanations of metabolic rateExpand

Distinguishing between Incomplete Lineage Sorting and Genomic Introgressions: Complete Fixation of Allospecific Mitochondrial DNA in a Sexually Reproducing Fish (Cobitis; Teleostei), despite Clonal
Distinguishing between hybrid introgression and incomplete lineage sorting causing incongruence among gene trees in that they exhibit topological differences requires application of statisticalExpand

Nuclear and mitochondrial phylogeography of the European fire‐bellied toads Bombina bombina and Bombina variegata supports their independent histories
Exact location and number of glacial refugia still remain unclear for many European cold‐blooded terrestrial vertebrates. We performed a fine‐scaled multilocus phylogeographic analysis of two BombinaExpand

Making it on their own: sperm-dependent hybrid fishes (Cobitis) switch the sexual hosts and expand beyond the ranges of their original sperm donors
Interspecific hybridization may result in asexual hybrid lineages that reproduce via parthenogenesis. Contrary to true parthenogens, sperm-dependent asexuals (gynogens and hybridogens) are restrictedExpand
